The Famous 2-Ingredient Pancake

Hello, hello! I can hardly believe that it's Monday already. I hope you all had a great weekend and that you're rested and ready for the week ahead. I have a fun breakfast recipe to share with you today...

I've been seeing and hearing about 2-ingredient pancakes for a few years now. They are everywhere! I finally got around to trying them and after the first bite, I couldn't understand why it took me so long to try them. Now don't go make these and think that they're going to taste like regular ol' pancakes... you will be a little disappointed if you do. 

BUT they do taste great. They taste sweet (depending on how ripe your bananas are) and a bit eggy- like a crepe. You could top this pancake with syrup or even add a scoop of nut butter, which takes it to a whole new level of amazing! 

Make a 2-Ingredient Pancake:

In a small mixing bowl, lightly beat an egg. Add a small to medium ripened banana to the bowl and mash with a potato masher until the mixture is mostly smooth and well combined.

Spray a pan with nonstick cooking spray and turn on the heat to low-medium (my stove heat goes from 1 to 10, 1 being low, and mine was set at 3). Once the pan is heated, pour the mixture into the pan and cook for several minutes (at least two minutes or until the batter seems to be set and the pancake is golden brown).

Flip the pancake over and continue to cook for an additional minute or so, or until this side is set and golden brown. Serve the pancake immediately and enjoy with your favorite toppings.

And seriously, add some nut butter! Amazing!!

Have you tried these things yet? If so, what did you think?
They've found a place in my breakfast rotation for sure.


  1. Oh my goodness, that looks amazing! Thanks for sharing your recipe! I've made a pancake that is egg and cream cheese based but not banana based.

    If you have a minute to spare I would be thrilled if you could share your post at my weekly Say G'Day Saturday party. It has just started and this would be a great addition.

    Best wishes,

  2. Stopping by from the Say G'Day mixer! These look delicious! My idea of 2 ingredient pancakes are mix and milk haha will definitely have to check these out. Also, because you mentioned nut butter, coconutter is all the rage in South Florida (I have a post on my page singing coconut's praises lol), in case you want to learn more: Have a great weekend!

    1. Haha! Too funny! I'll definitely be checking out your post. I've been hearing a lot of great things about coconut butter. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I used to do this with pumpkin! YUM :)
