These 2 ingredient banana pancakes were such a treat when we were doing our 30 Day Sugar Detox that we still make them!
I’m in awe of how fluffy these pancakes are given that there is no flour, no baking soda, and no baking powder.
The key is to mash the bananas until they are almost smooth. Then mix in the egg with a whisk so you get a little air in there. The air keeps the pancakes from being too heavy.
In our house, we tend to cook our pancakes on a cast iron skillet. Since the skillet is already seasoned, there is no need to add any butter or oil before cooking.
If you are cooking these in a regular skillet, please be sure to add a bit of butter or coconut oil to the pan. These will stick otherwise.
The recipe will make approximately six mini pancakes when you use the 1/4 cup scoop. If you want larger pancakes, just watch the cooktime. You’ll know to flip these when bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake.
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 large egg
- In a small bowl, mash bananas with a fork.
- Whisk in egg.
- Heat cast iron skillet over medium heat.
- Scoop batter by 1/4 cupful onto the hot skillet.
- Once bubbles appear on surface of pancake, flip and cook on the other side.
Make these on a lazy Saturday morning. If you double the recipe, you can have extras to freeze and reheat during the week!
