I think I’m going to be known as the 2 ingredient blogger. I’ve posted before about our healthy 2 ingredient cookies (my kids love them but we do add more than 2 ingredients) and I just recently stumbled across 2 ingredient pancakes. That’s right, just 2!!
The original recipe called for 1 banana to 2 eggs. My friend told me to change it to 2 bananas and 1 egg. I tried the recipe out this morning and the kids loved them! We topped them with just a splash of 100% maple syrup but they are definitely sweet enough as is.
2 Ingredient Pancakes
Mix one egg and 2 bananas. Cook on medium heat for a few minutes on each side (I used coconut oil in the pan but you could use a non-stick olive oil spray). Voila!
Only it wasn’t really voila! I had a little trouble keeping it from sticking. And though the kids LOVED them, I was feeling only ‘meh’ about them. I think the 2 ingredient recipe is great for something quick, easy and tasty.
But I wanted to gobble up some banana pancakes too, so I did a quick search, knowing there was something I could add to this basic recipe to get it to my liking, and I found one!
I loved that the recipe was still simple, healthy and the pancakes tasted amazing! I modified the recipe a bit and I think it is going to be a new family favorite. We had a few leftover and I took them with us on our trip to the zoo as a snack–no syrup necessary if eating it as a quick snack on the go.

I loved how simple and tasty these pancakes turned out. I think adding blueberries would make a nice touch and I bet there are other endless combinations of add-ins. If you try them, please let me know what you added to them or what you used as a topping! They also make a great school/after-school snack because they taste great cold and without any additional toppings.
Never Give Up,
