The Easiest Banana Pancakes You'll Ever Make

May 15, 2015

These banana pancakes are one of the easiest breakfast's you will ever make.  Not only do they have less than 3 ingredients but they are also gluten-free, grain-free and dairy-free.  These pancakes land somewhere in between banana bread and a classic buttermilk pancake.  While I recommend eating these with softened butter and maple syrup, you can definitely go a healthier route and top with fresh fruit.

Banana Pancakes


2 eggs
1 ripe banana
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
cooking spray
unsalted butter, softened, for serving
pure maple syrup, for serving


Step 1: In a small bowl, whisk the eggs until the yolks have mixed thoroughly with the whites.

Step 2: In a separate bowl, use a fork to smash the banana.  There should be no large pieces.

Step 3: Combine the eggs and banana and add the cinnamon.  Stir to combine.

Step 4: Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium high heat.  Lightly spray the pan with cooking spray.  Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop the batter and pour it into the pan.  Cook the pancake until a crust begins to form on the bottom and bubbles appear, then flip.  Cook for another 20 to 30 seconds and remove from pan.  Serve with butter and maple syrup

*Note: This recipe can be easily multiplied to accommodate more eaters.
