Banana Pancakes with Date Nectar

Two-ingredient banana pancakes are OK, but I really felt they could be improved with the right topping.  The recommended honey and maple syrup didn't do much for them, in my opinion.  It just so happened that when I made a batch, I was trying a new sweetener in my cereal.  I decided to put some on the pancakes, and WOW!  Date nectar took them to the next level!  The one I tried is by The Real Food Trading Company.

If you're making them for the first time, you need to know that they are VERY eggy and delicate.  I have to let them cook quite awhile before they'll flip without breaking.  Also, they taste best after they are cooled.

Two-Ingredient Banana Pancakes

1 ½-2 large ripe bananas
2 eggs
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon (optional)
Date nectar (optional)

Whisk eggs.  Whisk in cinnamon.  Mash bananas with a fork.  Stir well into egg.  Coat pan with coconut oil and cook over medium until both sides are browned.  (Dark brown patches have more flavor.)

Cool.  Drizzle with date nectar.
