Two-ingredient banana pancakes

    10 min

    These paleo pancakes couldn't be easier and must be tried to be believed! Simply banana and egg - no sugar, no gluten, no grain. You can also make them dairy free by frying in coconut oil instead of butter. Enjoy with maple syrup or honey.

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

    1. Heat the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat.
    2. Mash banana in a bowl using a fork until it becomes a wet consistency. Add egg and whisk mixture until batter is smooth.
    3. Drop batter into the hot butter to make 2 pancakes. Cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, about 2 minutes

    Cook's notes

    This recipe doubles easily.
    Frying the pancakes in butter creates nice crispy edges. Substitute 1 tablespoon coconut oil for the butter, if desired.

    Tastes like eggs and a banana. My six-year-old said it was good except for the banana. She ate a few bites, then handed it to me and asked for scrambled eggs instead.  -  17 Feb 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I've been making this recipe for a while, except I use 2 brown eggs, and I do add a tablespoon of pancake mix just to thicken it up a bit. With regular pancakes, I feel sluggish and weighted down after eating them, so this recipe is great when I still want pancakes without the after effects. I normally eat bananas daily, so the bit of banana taste doesn't turn me off. I still add a little bit of butter on top, and eat them with syrup. I've recommend this recipe all the time to friends.  -  03 Mar 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
