Growing up I just wasn’t a breakfast person. In fact, neither was my husband. Flash forward to present day & we still aren’t great at eating breakfast daily. Ryan doesn’t try at all & I often forget. The big difference is on the weekends- sometimes we crave it! We started out as newlyweds with canned biscuits & years later have graduated to some simple breakfast recipes that we can make with ingredients on hand. This healthy version of pancakes is a huge hit in our house- check out the recipe & how to change it up below!
Two things we always have in our house are bananas & eggs. My husband is a big fan of grabbing a piece of fruit to take to work & bananas always make it into our cart. In fact, I have a sneaking suspicion he buys more than necessary because he knows I’ll make these with some of the more ripe ones! I am the culprit of over-purchasing eggs because they are so cheap & I can use them for snacks, breakfasts, or recipe binders.
These two-ingredient pancakes are different than a more traditional recipe…& we’re okay with that! The pancakes are thinner & for use have an even better texture. The mix will vary a bit depending on how ripe your bananas are as well. We’ve found the more ripe the banana the more sweet the pancake- & the more color from the natural fruit sugars. I also tend to make mine smaller but that is just preferance, you can make these whatever size you wish!
- 1 banana, ripe
- 2 large eggs
- Mash your banana up in a bowl.
- Whisk eggs in separate bowl then combine with mashed banana thoroughly.
- Drop batter onto buttered or nonstick skillet for each pancake. Flip when light bubbling starts to form.
We make these constantly & Ryan even tells people about them. They’re healthy, simple, & seriously tasty. I highly recommend trying them! You can even make some additions like a strawberry rose if you’re fancy like I was one morning! Other additions we really like are mini chocolate chips, berries, vanilla sugar, pumpkin pie spice, & walnuts. We often use fruit in place of syrup or agave, honey, or even s
