These Pancakes Have Only Two Ingredients (And Flour Is Not One)

Either you learned about this obsession-worthy wellness hack ages ago and make this easy pancake recipe every weekend or this is the first you’re hearing about it, in which case you are about to flip your lid.

Only two ingredients are needed for these insanely yummy, somewhat normal tasting pancakes: eggs and bananas. That’s it. After a quick whisking and a spin on the ol’ frying pan you’ll be stuffing your face with the best breakfast ever and – if you’re anything like us- you won’t be able to stop yourself from forcing everyone you know to try the recipe.

Our friends at Food Matters reminded us of this golden oldie recently and now they’re all we can think about. We’ve got one breakfast recipe on our weekend roster that needs trying first – these paleo bone broth waffles – and after that we’re going bananas for breakfast through the duration of spring…

The Easiest, Healthiest Pancakes Ever


2 eggs
1 banana, peeled, chopped roughly (not too ripe!)

coconut oil or butter for frying


Whisk eggs in a bowl, add the banana and mash together to form a batter. 

Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil or butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Pour in the batter to create a thin pancake. Let the pancake cook for about a minute before flipping it. Cook for another minute or two.

Serve with fresh strawberries and yogurt, cinnamon butter, maple syrup or sweetener of choice. You can also add nut butter, seeds (sesame, chia, hemp seed) and a drizzle of raw honey.
