Directions: 

1. Mash bananas with a fork or purée in food processor. In a medium bowl mix together bananas, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well to the consistency of a batter.

2. Add nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Mix together and refrigerate batter for 15 minutes to allow it to set up.
