Ranch Recipes: Banana pancakes


It has been quite a while since I posted a recipe and today's recipe for Banana Pancakes is tasty and just about as easy of a recipe as it gets. If you are like the average American household, you probably already have the ingredients on hand too. It makes a small enough quantity to serve one or easily doubles to serve two or more. It is also a quick, gluten free pancake recipe that doesn't require special baking mixes which makes it a great recipe for ranch guests.

Banana Pancakes (makes four 4" pancakes)
- 1 egg
- 1 small/medium banana

1. Mash banana with a fork or potato masher. Beat in egg. Batter will be very thin.

2. Over medium heat in a non-stick pan or griddle, pour batter into 4" pancakes and cook 1-2 minutes then flip and cook another minute. Enjoy!

In my experience 4" pancakes are about perfect, any larger and they tear or can be difficult to flip. The texture is somewhat of a cross between a crepe and a pancake and delightfully banana-y. A shake of cinnamon sugar or a splash of vanilla in the batter would be good but even as written and eaten plain with no syrup, these pancakes are still yummy.
