I have a tendency to have a banana with peanut butter each morning. But when they hit a certain degree of ripeness, I can't hang with the texture so I have to create an alternative.
I picked it up at my favorite-little-thrift-store, for $5. I had been keeping an eye out for one and I think this may have been used one or two times. Instructions were even with it. I've used it to caramelize onions (works like a bleeping dream) sautéed turkey breast and it browned so nicely...eggs, didn't get that over heated browning my cast iron pans give...love it love it love it. I'm a huge cast iron fan so this is big for me. The only problem with non-stick surfaces is finding a spatula that will work that isn't metal. Fortunately, I've been successful with my wooden one, it's just a little more of a be careful process.
I automatically thought of the well known mix of eggs and bananas, but I was looking for something more satisfying. So I started adding things. I used my Vitamix to blend it up smooth but a good blender should work well, too, due to the consistency of the ingredients -- unless, of course, you drop eggshell into the pitcher. If that happens, you might get a little crunch. With the Vitamix, I knew I didn't have to worry and just figured I'd be getting a little calcium in the mix. ;)
Here's how I made it:
2 eggs (with or without shells)
2 ripe bananas
1/2 can plain pumpkin puree
1/4 c. coconut flour (more or less depending on how thick you like them)
pumpkin pie spice, or mix of cinnamon, clove, ginger, nutmeg (I eyeballed amounts)
Mix on high. This was thick enough that I had to spoon it out. My first batch was a bit less firm and I could pour it out but I wanted more oomph to them, that is when I added the coconut flour.
I made them in one of my new favorite kitchen appliances.
