2 ingredient pancakes

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!

2 ingredient pancakes – sort of


  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon skim milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds


  1. In a bowl add all the ingredients and start mashing away - making sure the egg is all incorporated into the rest of the ingredients.
  2. 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.
  3. 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??

    I have done the banana and egg once. It was a little hard to cook in the skillet because it wanted to burn before it was done (maybe that was me??). The flavor and texture reminded me of a banana crepe, kind of fun.

    I do what I call flax jacks, which is the banana mashed with egg whites and ground flax.

  3. Hmmm, not sure about a 2-ingredient pancake. Doesn’t seem like a “pancake” at all. Your six-ingredient version seems a bit more complete.
