Banana Pancakes

As a college student, I try to be as resourceful as possible, especially in the kitchen. I try to go grocery shopping every two weeks, and so by the end of that two-week period, most of my fresh food has either been used or is about to go bad. I also love eating bananas, but I like to eat bananas at their prime ripeness, before they turn brown. In order to avoid throwing away two bananas, I decided to do a quick search and found an extremely easy recipe for banana pancakes. The ingredients: bananas and eggs, that’s it. Because the bananas were ripe this recipe was super easy, all I had to do was mash up the bananas and mix in two eggs. With that batter I fried the pancakes as if they were traditional pancakes and voila, I had a new take on a traditional breakfast.

Discussion question: Has anyone ever tried this recipe? Has anyone ever used banana as a substitute in any other recipes?
