Banana flourless pancakes

With intense, concentrated banana flavor, 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.
