If you’ve been following my other $10 Food Day posts (check out #1 and #2), you may start noticing a trend. Eggs and bananas are recurring ingredients. These kitchen staples are super cheap and versatile. When I found out about this recipe that combines both of these foods – and nothing else – I had to give them a try.
They’re very tasty – although don’t expect these to taste like a traditional pancake. They’re slightly sweet, moist, and taste sort of like warm banana bread. My friend Jessi, who told me about this recipe, said that her kids love them. I imagine that kids would love them even more if they were made into fun shapes with these: Star and Flower Pancake Egg Rings

Banana and Egg Pancakes Recipe
Yield: 4 servings
You'll need two eggs for every banana. I made a triple batch, which I think would be appropriate for four people. If you have some hungry eaters in your bunch, you may want to quadruple the original recipe.
3 ripe bananas
Dash of cinnamon and/or salt, optional
Brown sugar and sour cream
Mash the bananas. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs. Combine the bananas and eggs and mix well.
Place a bit of cooking oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Pour in 1/4 cup of batter at a time and cook for about two minutes on each side.
