2-Ingredient Banana Pancakes

Today's recipe share is great for pancake lovers looking for a healthier alternative to help stick with their New Year's resolutions or healthy lifestyles - 2-Ingredient Banana Pancakes! They are simple to make and so good. These pancakes are perfect for a gluten-free alternative too. More than anything, they are really delicious!  

Only two ingredients are needed to make these simple yet tasty panackes - two large eggs and a medium size ripe banana. 

The texture of these pancakes is more like french toast - delicious eggy goodness. This single serving recipe makes four pancakes using 1/4 cup of the batter for each one. If you want, you can make them into silver dollar pancakes. I love making them smaller and saving the pancakes to make silver dollar peanut butter pancake sandwiches. So good!  

What I love most about these pancakes is how simple they are to adapt to your taste and liking. You can add your favorite spices like cinnamon, nutmeg...even pumpkin spice in the fall. I like to add a few dashes of nutmeg and cinnamon. 

You will find different variations for these pancakes under the recipe below. 

Serve these pancakes with lots of fresh fruit and pure maple syrup.  

You will feel good digging into these guilt-free, super delicious pancakes!

2-Ingredient Banana Pancakes

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 medium size ripe banana
  • add an extra 1/2 banana mashed more chunky, for chunky banana pancakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, nutmeg or pumpkin spice
  • add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • top with butter, maple syrup, fresh berries, powdered sugar

In a medium size bowl, mash banana using a fork. In a small bowl, lightly whisk eggs. Pour the eggs over the bananas and whisk until well blended. 

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium to medium-low heat. Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Allow pancakes to cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes (times will vary depending on stove), they are ready to flip when the edges start to bubble and turn *golden brown. Continue to cook until both sides are golden brown and cooked through. Serve with fresh fruit and maple syrup. Enjoy!

*Note - Watch the heat on your skillet, these pancakes can turn a dark brown pretty quickly. Don't worry if one side is dark brown, they will still be delicious. 

  • add 1/8 teaspoon of fresh baking powder to the eggs when whisking, this makes them a little more fluffy
  • 1 egg lightly beaten, 1 banana mashed and 2 tablespoons of flour (wheat and GF flour mixes work well too)
  • for a treat, add mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Thanks so much for stopping by!
