A while back all the rage on pinterest and other food blogs was the 2 ingredient pancakes. You take 1 banana, mash it, add 1 beaten egg cook it as a pancake and that’s it!
I tried the 2 ingredient pancake, and it does work, however, it’s also a good base for add-ins.
I had ripe bananas that had to be used – and then I just started adding what I had on hand and kept my fingers crossed it turned out good!
- 1 banana
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon skim milk
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon flax seeds
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- In a bowl add all the ingredients and start mashing away - making sure the egg is all incorporated into the rest of the ingredients.
- I made this into 1 giant pancake. In a small non stick skillet, I just poured the batter and on low heat - cook for 3-4 minutes. It's kind of a wet batter, but don't worry - it will turn out fine after cooking both sides.
- To flip, I placed a plate over the skillet, turned the skillet over so the pancake was on the plate, and just slid it back into the skillet to finish cooking - another 3 minutes.
At first bite, I was like “it’s OK” – but as I continued to eat it, it really grew on me and I LOVED it! I will definitely make this again. And I made this before going to work! (I almost forgot – I added a few chocolate chips too!)
Have you tried the 2 ingredient pancake yet??
