Okay, let me start off by saying that I think “paleo” is one of the most obnoxious diets du jour. No cheese? No beer? No bread? That bleep is for masochists. And the gluten-free craze falls into the same category (unless you legitimately have celiac disease, in which, case, I’m really sorry and also, can I have that bread if you’re not going to eat it?).
Since I’m much more of an epicurean than a masochist, I generally bristle at the sight of gluten-free and paleo-friendly recipes. But I keep coming across a recipe for pancakes that has caught my attention, something involving two simple ingredients: a banana and two eggs. I may not be into fad diets, but I’m totally into healthier versions of not-terribly-healthy dishes, and I was also curious about how a banana and eggs could magically morph into pancakes, so I decided to give it a shot.
