Pancake Recipe Made with Just Eggs and Bananas – What not to do
Have you seen those pictures on Facebook and Pinterest of pancakes made with just eggs and bananas? They are a great gluten-free pancake alternative. I looked for the Pancakes with Eggs and Bananas recipe. Most of the recipes I saw said to use 2 eggs for 1 banana.
Here’s what I did, so you know what not to do. Most of the times bloggers post successful food creations. I think of myself as a risk taker with food. I am always trying out new recipes, tweaking things, and making up as I go along. Occasionally, things don’t work out. It can be a little frustrating, especially if I spent a lot of time and/or money of the items in the recipe. Luckily, I did not spend very much money on this meal, but it did take some time to create. I’m going to show you and tell you what I did so maybe you’ll have better success than me with the Pancakes with Eggs and Bananas Only recipe.
How not to make pancakes with only bananas and eggs
I mashed up 2 bananas in one bowl and whisked 4 eggs in another bowl. Then I combined everything into to the egg bowl and mixed it up some more. My husband and I agreed that the batter looked really thin, so I added another banana.
I melted some butter in a skillet and then, with a ladle, spooned out 4 pancakes onto the hot skillet over medium heat. The batter was pretty runny, so I tried to keep pushing it back into a somewhat circle. The pancake was very difficult to flip. When I used one spatula, it made a big mess. I ended up using a spatula in both hands on 2 ends of the pancake and was able to flip it better. I placed the cooked pancakes on a plate and started the next round. Hint – use lots of butter between each round. I did use butter, but it was not enough. The pancakes burned easily. I had a hard time getting the right amount of time and heat so that they would cook, but not burn.
A few of the pancakes came out looking somewhat like pancakes. My kids refused to even try them. My husband and I had a few.
They were definitely different. They were moister than regular pancakes and definitely pretty sweet from the banana. I’m not sure if I would make these again.

Failure is not a bad thing. I will continue to test, tweak, and try out new recipes. I like to keep this quote in mind. “Don’t worry about failures, worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try.” – Jack Canfield.
