Who would have thought you could make pancakes with only three ingredients? Well, if you have a ripe banana, eggs, and some flour, you’re set. A very ripe banana provides all the sweetness you’ll need for this recipe. After all, let’s be honest: who can resist a drizzle of maple syrup on pancakes?

If you have gluten intolerance, I’d be curious to know how this recipe turns out using almond or chickpea flour.
