Banana lover’s flourless pancakes
With intense, concentrated banana flavour, these pancakes truly live up to their name. Bound simply with beaten eggs and containing no flour or starch, they get crisp and browned on the outside and have a creamy, custardy interior. Because the fruit has its own natural sweetness, there’s no need for any sugar in the batter. It's also the best way to use up super-ripe bananas. You can simplify the filling by leaving out the spices, if desired. Then just garnish the pancakes with some fresh blueberries to help tie everything together and create the prettiest presentation.
2 medium, ripe, divided

- Mash 1 ½ bananas in a medium bowl; slice remainder of banana and set aside slices. Whisk eggs, vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg into bowl with bananas until blended.
- Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; set over medium heat. Spoon 2 Tbsp batter for each pancake into skillet. (You may need to do this in 2 batches.) Cook over medium heat until edges are set and bottoms are golden, about 1 minute. Carefully flip pancakes with a thin spatula and cook on other side until bottoms are golden, about 1 minute.
- Serve pancakes topped with berries, reserved sliced bananas and dusted with powdered sugar.
