The TWO (or, however-many-you-want) Ingredient Pancake


I always shied away from making pancakes. Not only am I not crazy about them to begin with, but when it comes time to flip those little bubbling circles of goo, disaster usually ensues.

Until I found out that you could make a pancake with only TWO ingredients. Now that, I had to try.

But first, I’ll confess that my version of the two ingredient pancake quickly became the several ingredient pancake, as I creatively fancified and healthified my little breakfast cakes. The good news: this part is totally optional and you can get as creative (or not) as you like!

For about 3 pancakes:

– 1 banana

– 2 eggs (I used one whole egg and one egg white)

Optional add-ins:

– ground flax seed

– chia seeds

– wheat germ

– coconut milk

– coconut flakes


To prepare:

1) Whisk the banana and eggs together until a batter-like consistency is achieved.

2) Spray a saucepan on medium-low heat with cooking spray. You’ll want to cook these pancakes at a lower temperature than you would usually cook a pancake, because they are subject to burn very easily .

3) Ladle batter into the pan, achieving a small pancake size as this will be easier to flip.

4) Cook covered until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake, and the bottom is firm enough to flip with a spatula.

5) Flip pancake and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom.

Serve with toppings of your choice;I went with blueberries, wheat germ, coconut flakes, and a side of almonds and dates.
