Your Happy Healthy Ingredients

That’s it!  And the instructions are super easy too!


1.  Peel the banana and cut it in to pieces and throw it in a Mixing Bowl.  Go ahead and crack those two eggs in there too.

Time to mix your pancake mix!

2.  Mix it all about! You can use a mixer like I did, so that you can get a more even consistency.  If you don’t have one laying around, just make sure you blend it well enough!

3.  Oil up your Skillet/Pan(I used Coconut Oil) and then pour the paleo pancakes mix in to the pan.  Cook like you would with normal pancakes.

4.  Eat it! I drizzled some Honey on mine.  But really, the banana pancakes are already sweet, so that is totally optional.

Finished Product

The important thing here though, is to realize it is obviously not going to taste exactly like pancakes you make from flour.  However, for a pancake that doesn’t have any flour, it is quite and awesome recipe find!

      It’s a fun little recipe that is fast and easy! Just remember it won’t be the exact same as your normal pancakes made with flour!

    My favorite way to make pancakes! I also like to add cinnamon and pure vanilla extract to the mix. Then, I spread on grass-fed butter and drizzle coconut butter on top when I eat them. It’s so good! Alternatively, a bit of almond butter is good too.

    • Tina T. December 3, 2012 at 1:29 pm #

      That sounds yummy! I’ll have to try it with cinnamon and vanilla extract some time :)

    MUST try this one! I always have an extra banana that’s going more brown than I care for.

    Is the ratio constant for more pancakes?

    • Tina T. December 5, 2012 at 3:59 pm #

      Hi! So there are actually different ratios you can try out, I think it is more personal preference. Someone suggested me to try using 1 banana to 1 egg instead of 1 banana to 2 eggs to get a less ‘egg-y’ pancake. So I guess it is up to you how much egg vs banana but which ever you do, if you want more pancakes, keep that ratio constant. Hope that helps!

      Awesome! Good luck! Let me know how it turns out or if you have any questions/recommendations!

    I made these this morning for my 13 mo old. He loved them! And I loved that it was a great way to get more fat from the coconut oil as well as eggs, he’s not yet fond of them. And they tasted amazing on their own! Mine were really thin so I’ll have to mess with them to see if there’s a way to make them thicker. Thanks for posting the recipe!!

    • Tina T. December 10, 2012 at 9:51 am #

      Hey! Thanks for stopping by! If you want them a bit thicker you can try one egg to one banana ratio! The recipe I posted says 2 eggs to a banana, but in reality it depends a bit on the size of your eggs and the size of your bananas and also your personal preference. Another thing you can do is actually add 1 tbsp or coconut flour or almond flour which should thicken it up :) Good luck!

  7. Kbeth December 13, 2012 at 1:25 pm #

    LOVED these!!! Threw in some cinnamon, vanilla and chopped pecans. Best Paleo pancake I’ve ever had!! Thank you. :)

    • Tina T. December 13, 2012 at 1:47 pm #

      That actually sounds REALLY good! I am thinking the next time I make these I will be adding some extra flavors like those :)

        Do you have a Facebook page? Thank you!!

        • Tina T. December 13, 2012 at 11:03 pm #

          No problem!! You know, I’ve been meaning to make one! Now that you’re asked – I created one just for you! http://www.facebook.com/OhSnapLetsEat Nothing is there yet, but I will definitely update new recipes/food/pictures from now on! Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Sylvia December 22, 2012 at 7:59 pm #

    This looks awesome! I am trying it today :) thank you!!!

    • Tina December 22, 2012 at 8:28 pm #

      No problem! Hope it goes well! Also, if you have smaller bananas, you might want to go with 1 egg 1 banana, so that it is less egg-y! Thanks for stopping by!

    Can’t wait to try these. Looks good!

    • Tina January 8, 2013 at 11:17 am #

      Let me know how it turns out! I still haven’t tried adding anything to it yet. I have some walnuts at home and I am thinking about trying that out :)

  13. John LeMasney January 8, 2013 at 2:34 pm #

    Amazing. I love the simplicity of it.

  14. Katie Corazzo, ND January 10, 2013 at 3:35 pm #

    I’ve made this before and love it! Adding cinnamon give it some extra flavor :)

  15. Liz S. February 1, 2013 at 8:16 am #

    Just tried it with plantains instead of bananas. Might be even better! So delicious!

    • Tina February 1, 2013 at 9:04 am #

      That sounds like an awesome idea! I’ll have to try that some time! Thanks for the suggestion!

  16. Amanda February 12, 2013 at 5:11 pm #

    I just made these from a different website with the 1:1 ratio, and I’m not sure I’m in love. They taste like a banana omelette which isn’t awful but it’s definitely “eggier” than I expected. Do you think adding a bit of coconut or almond flour would help? Or is it just a personal taste thing?
    I think if I was off gluten/wheat these would be a great substitute though, maybe it’s just because I made pancakes from scratch the other day so the taste was fresh in my mind…

    • Tina February 12, 2013 at 5:20 pm #

      Yes, I have definitely heard of people telling me they have added some almond flour or coconut flour to the recipe so that it’s not as ‘eggy’ and more like a normal pancake, so I would definitely try that out! Good luck!

  17. Elizabeth February 16, 2013 at 2:16 pm #

    I can’t wait to try this! I need more options for quick and easy weekday breakfasts! Definitely trying this on Monday.

  18. lennykey March 17, 2013 at 7:54 am #

    Fantastic breakfast. Next sunday I will try this again

  19. Rachel O June 19, 2013 at 9:17 am #

    SO good!! I played with this a little as I went … Started with 2 eggs, 1 banana and a dash of cinnamon. The first two were super thin, so I added a banana. This made them thicker, but because they cook so quickly, I discovered you WANT them on the thin side, so I added another egg and a little nutmeg (because it was out and it sounded good!) and that was about perfect! We didn’t add anything on top, but they were pretty coated in coconut oil. (I used a lot ;) ). My almost 2 year old and 8 month old both LOVED them (as in, I only got two!! Haha!) the true test will be if my husband likes them ;)

    So my final thoughts are, if you have a few people eating, my best ratio was 2 bananas 3 eggs.

    Thanks for this!!! :)

    I;m going to pick up bananas today so I can make this for breakfast tomorrow. Looks amazing and I love how simple it is to make :)

  21. Joshua H. August 21, 2013 at 9:32 pm #

    I made these for my mom Saturday AM, then she and I made them for my brother, sis-in-law, and nephew Sunday AM. In both cases they turned out great! We added some blueberries and/or coconut to jazz them up a bit more which turned out really well. Best of all they weren’t super heavy and energy-zapping like I normally find a stack-o-pancakes to be. Thanks for the great recipe, I’ll definitely be making these often!

    • Tina T. August 21, 2013 at 11:16 pm #

      So glad you liked it! It’s true, they don’t make me want to go in to a coma after I eat them! I love em!

  22. Shari August 27, 2013 at 12:06 pm #

    Just curious, anything else you’ve tried besides bananas? I don’t care for them, but I like the concept of the recipe. I was just looking for alternatives.

  23. Matt Osborn November 7, 2013 at 2:39 pm #

    Game Changer!
    Thank you for this recipe I can’t wait to give it a try. I am also thinking savory with bacon or ham pieces and maybe even some type of sandwich…
    I haven’t had a sandwich in four months+ and I do really miss them.
    My co workers can’t really understand what I am going on about but this is a whole new universe for me.
    I love the site and will be back often.
    Thanks again.

I make them bigger rather than smaller and they were so good my son…. who is sensory and texture sensitive ate them (major score!). I topped these with powdered peanut butter, which is a must eat if you are a peanut butter scooper. Who isn’t? This has become my breakfast because if I choke down one more whey protein shake in the morning I will choke on it. […]

    […] 18. 2-Ingredient Pancakes This is the pancake recipe to make when you don’t have a lot of ingredients on hand because it only uses two of them. Some pancake recipes say “just add water” which technically is two ingredients, the mix and the water, but this one is much more natural. It uses a banana and some eggs to make the batter, so these will definitely taste like banana pancakes. You can add to it if you want, consider dark chocolate chips as a great source of antioxidants, and third ingredient that can really make these special. We were skeptical at first, but give this a try and you’ll be a believer. […]
