Two Ingredient Pancakes

Happy National Pancake Day!!!

I am loving these awesome food holidays! Yesterday I celebrated National Frozen Yogurt Day with my friend Brett at Yogurtland for a free yogi and toppings. The line went well around the corner of the store, but it moved petty fast. I went with plain/tart and topped it with kiwi, yogurt covered raisins, and yogurt chips, mmmm!

Instead of going to IHOP for their oh so tempting free and very caloric pancakes, I have some ultra skinny and healthy two ingredient pancakes for you! Celebrate this tasty holiday with a batch of gluten free, flour-less, and protein packed pancakes! They’re so sweet, you may not even want syrup!

Serves 1

2 eggs
1 very ripe banana

my favorite additions:
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp cinnamon

Mash the ripened banana with hands or a fork until smooth and set aside. Beat two eggs and then add to the mashed banana. Add vanilla and cinnamon into the batter if desired. Generously spray a pan with nonstick or olive oil cooking spray and turn the stove to medium heat. Using a 1 Tbsp measuring spoon, scoop a spoonful of batter and pour into the pan. Flip the pancakes once the edges become cooked. Allow the pancakes to cook through. Respray the pan with nonstick spray between each set of pancakes. Enjoy!
Note: Start with a lower heat since the pancakes can burn easily. Each pancake takes a couple of minutes to cook.
Another Note: Nonstick cooking pans help making the pancakes easier to make.

      Hi Misty! I’m not sure if a flax or chia egg would work with this recipe. There are vegan egg replacers available at health food stores that may work better but I haven’t tried it with this recipe.

    These sound great. I was thinking adding chia as well. It always keeps me full until lunch.

      Chia seeds would be a great addition to these pancakes! They would definitely help to keep the mixture together :) Let me know when you try them! xo

    So glad your back and feeling better! I’ve been continuously repping your ‘rabbit food’ shirt! ;) Keep these recipes coming! As a college student on a budget ($$ & time), I’m a BIG fan of these simple & quick recipes. I personally love the microwave quick bake cookies too!

    Would this work with thawed frozen bananas? Is there anything I should add to make up for the change in consistency?

    I made these for breakfast this morning after my 5 day skinny bunny cleanse (I lost 9 pounds! Woo!), and they were delicious! The perfect food to graze back into the pyramid. I found that I didn’t like the consistency if I mixed them with just my fork, so I put the ingredients in the blender for a few seconds and it was perfect. I poured them straight onto the pan from there. It also made a lot more than I thought, so I couldn’t even finish them!

    Thanks so much for your blog and the delicious recipes!

    I started making these last year, when I first saw the recipe: delicious! It seems all you health bloggers are amazing pancake flippers though, haha, and prefer mini-pancakes. My banana/egg pancakes are always a huge mess (but taste great).

    I also love that this recipe is easy to remember and very versatile. I started adding some cinnamon and vanilla to mine, as well as chia seeds, protein powder and if I’m craving it, some pumpkin (these additions also help make the pancakes a bit thicker so it’s easier for my clumsy self to flip them).

      Hahaha oh my gosh Stacy, you have no idea how many batches I burned before getting they all pretty! Hence why I suggest using a nonstick pan AND nonstick/olive oil cooking spray in between each pour! Took me a while to find the right heat setting on my stove too! Sometimes mine turn out like a hot mess, but they’re just so good! Love your additions!!!

    I just made these with one egg and two baby bananas and got about seven little pancakes! They were so sweet and delicious that didn’t have to put anything on them either – I just kept eating them right over the stove while I was cooking :)

    Hi! I just recently found your blog and it’s amazing! You’re quite the inspiration! And this recipe is perfect! I’m a huge sucker for pancakes and have not been able to find a replacement..honestly I didn’t even think of smashing banana in the batter. And it makes SO much sense..
    I’m a big fiber person so I added just a tablespoon of whole oats and some rye bran (Finland thing ;) 64% fiber..AWESOME!) and a tea spoon of full grain flour with 1/4 tsp of baking powder with the eggs and let them settle for about 20mins before mixing in the banana and cinnamon. OMG!!! I think next time I’ll be brave enough for the plain two ingredients too! A huge bonus was that my son loved them, too..he’s not a pancake or any cake fan really but these he went for seconds ! Yay! Thanks for this blog and keep up the recipes! I love that they’re simple and really fast! With diets and exercise that stuff counts…you already have so many excuses for not doing it right, you surely didn’t give me any more which I’m ever so grateful for! Loooove!

    Wow! These were amazing! I used my single serve blender to mash the banana first then added egg, vanilla, and cinnamon, and gave it another little whirl. They came out perfect!!! My kids topped them with whipped topping and blueberries. I ate 1 plain, 1 with peanut butter, and 1 like a blueberry taco. So delicious. Thank you so much for the recipe! If you’d like a photo of my kids enjoying them send me an email :)

    I eat these a few times a week… I love them and got my fiance hooked on them too! We add 1/4 cup oats (soaked in water for 5 minutes) and 2 Tbs of chopped walnuts. They taste like Banana Nut Oatmeal but they’re crispy and warm and dense YES so good!

    Oh my gosh! What a terrific recipe! Living pay check to pay check, I often find myself with little more then brown bananas and a carton of eggs the week before pay day rolls around. This is so perfect for the poor breakfast lover (like me!). Thank you so much for sharing!

    I tried these for breakfast this morning (with the added vanilla and cinnamon). I LOVED the taste, but wasn’t a big fan of the texture. Is there a way to make them less chewy? I would love to make these again, but I don’t know if I can get past that chewy texture. Thanks for the recipe!
