  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup 2% milk (or nut milk)

  • COMBINE WET INGREDIENTS: In a separate, medium-sized mixing bowl, mash the bananas using a fork or potato masher until only small lumps remiane. Whisk in the eggs and milk until thoroughly combined.
  • COMBINE ALL INGREDIENTS: Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until just combined and there are minimal lumps.

MAKE IT VEGAN - Use flax eggs instead of real eggs by soaking 3 tablespoons of flax meal with water for 3-5 minutes before adding it the remaining ingredients. Then use ⅔ cup nut milk or soy milk rather than cow's milk.
MAKE IT DAIRY FREE - Substitute nut milk or soy  milk for the cow's milk.
MAKE IT REFINED SUGAR FREE - Substitute ¼ cup of pure maple syrup or honey for the brown sugar. Then decrease milk to ⅔ cup.
