Two Ingredient Pancakes

IMG_5355My kids love pancakes and they beg me to make them most mornings of the week – even though I generally end up making oatmeal and smoothies and reserve pancake eating to the weekends. I try to make whole grain or buckwheat pancakes for them with bananas or other fruit but I recently found this super easy recipe that gets its natural sweetness from just a few bananas.

You’ll have these ingredients in your house and will be pleasantly surprised by how easy they are to make and how delicious they taste! They are grain free and gluten free. They are a little difficult to flip so make sure they really are cooked on one side first and nice a bubbly on top before flipping them over.

You can make them into four ingredient pancakes with the addition of a half teaspoon of baking soda for extra fluff (I would recommend this) and a little cinnamon for extra spice and flavor. The benefit of adding bananas to these pancakes is you really don’t need added sweeteners like maple syrup or honey – just serve with some fresh fruit!

Two Ingredient Pancakes

2 eggs
4 medium bananas

Optional: 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (recommended for extra fluffy pancakes)
A pinch of cinnamon

How to make Two Ingredient Pancakes

In a blender, mix 2 eggs and 4 medium bananas.  Add baking soda and cinnamon to the mix, if desired.

Heat your frying pan/skillet and add a teaspoon of butter.
Once the butter is melted and coats the skillet/frying pan add the pancake batter (about 3 tablespoons make a small pancake).

When the pancake batter is bubbling and one side is cooked well, flip carefully. Cook for about 15 more seconds and then serve hot with fresh fruit.
