This recipe for two ingredient pancakes is all over google, so you are probably thinking, okay, B, how original. Listen up, these are good and don't make you feel like you need to go take the biggest nap of your life. I've always wanted to give them a try because one, it really doesn't get any lazier than mixing together two eggs and 1 banana to get pancakes in less than 5 minutes, two, they are healthy- no added sugar! ....and that is really all I have ....there really isn't an excuse for not making these pancakes. Clean up is minimal, you can add anything you want into the batter- peanut butter, cacao powder (like I did above), vanilla extract, protein powder...the world is your oyster. So, essentially you can make yourself a different batch of pancakes every single time you make these without having to really whip out more than 10 ingredients on a Sunday, because who really wants to do that? Sunday = day of rest.
I've been making these pancakes on Sundays and leaving them in the fridge for the week and in the morning just popping them in the oven to heat them up while I get ready for work....so it is as Sunday morning is happening every single morning and I can forget that I have to be out the door and off to work.
A few things:
I recommend adding the baking powder to the pancakes because it makes them fluffier! It is just a small amount but it does make a difference!
I also love adding my favorite protein into the mix or nut butter to create a hearty pancake and it keeps me fuller longer.
I blended the batter in my vitamix to make sure everything was nice and smooth. If you don't have one, no worries! Just make sure the batter is clump-free!
I used cooking spray (chosen foods, avocado oil spray) and carefully flipped the pancake after 1 minute of cooking on each side. One minute, one side, thats it! Flip them carefully!
Top them with whatever you want. Go crazy!
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 2 minutes roughly on each side
Makes about 7 pancakes (2 tbsp. sized)
1/2 cup mashed banana
optional add ins:
almond butter, peanut butter etc
fruit (blueberries, strawberries etc)
1. Mash the banana with the eggs. I used my vitamix to ensure a smooth batter. Here, add in any spices, baking soda, protein powders etc. (Anything that is smooth).
2. Heat a non-stick skillet with oil, I used an avocado spray and found that to be easier than liquid oil. Once the pan is heated, turn the temperature to medium to low.
3. Add 2 tbsp. of the batter into the pan and let it cook for about 1 minute. Here, add chocolate chips, fruit, nuts etc. Carefully flip the pancakes and cook on the other side for another minute.
4. Repeat step three. I lightly sprayed the skillet each time I added a pancake.
5. Serve warm, freeze them or keep them in the fridge for grab and go during the week!
