transformers in parallel

I made a simple inverter 50W and is working satisfactorily. Can I parallel up two same spec transformers as shown in the schematic below? Or will the MOSFET blow-up due to backemf? Thanks.

how to parallel two inverters

There's no principical difference between using two 50VA or one 100 VA transformer. I doubt, however, that a single pair of IRF244 is good for 100 VA from 12V.

parallel transformers

you can parallel transformers of the same windings, However in case of inverter you need to take care that the MOSFET or any switch is also upgraded.
