Good morning everyone! And what better a way to start your morning than with some healthy, two ingredient pancakes?
If your jaw dropped, you’re not alone. When we found the original recipe for these healthy pancakes on Tumblr (*gasp* don’t tell Pinterest that we’re cheating on it!), we knew we had to give them a shot. If anything seemed too good to be true, it was these pancakes made with only banana and eggs. Even if they cooked like pancakes, what would they taste like?
Pancakes are such a weekend morning treat- I love mine with peanut butter and bananas on top. Mmmm… it’s making me hungry even writing this! But we never would have guessed that healthy pancakes existed. But not only is this recipe low-cal and low-fat, it is also gluten free and “clean” (no preservatives). If you’re trying to keep a healthy diet, it seems these are the pancakes for you! Here’s how you make these delicious, two ingredient pancakes:
First, grab your ingredients. You’ll need:
- two eggs
- one banana
- a Magic Bullet, food processor or small blender
Yes- that’s really all you need!
Put your ingredients in the Magic Bullet, making sure the banana is in small pieces.
Blend until creamy. This is your pancake batter.
Spray a pan with cooking spray and pour in half the batter. Wait a minute or two for the first side to cook over medium heat. You’ll need to flip it a little bit before it seems quite ready to avoid it burning. These pancakes are more difficult to flip than normal pancakes, because they don’t stay together as well as normal pancakes. You’ll get the hang of it after the first pancake!
Once you’ve successfully flipped your pancake, let the other side cook and it’s all done! Repeat with the second half of your batter.
We enjoyed these pancakes much more than expected! They are thinner and less fluffy than normal pancakes, but they taste sweet like banana pancakes (not surprisingly). They’re pretty delicious plus you can’t get around the fact that they are downright good for you! Each pancake is only 120 calories, as opposed to the 180 calories in a normal pancake. Also, they’re preservative and gluten free! We liked them best with a little peanut butter and strawberries on top. Yum!
