2-Ingredient Banana Pancakes

Don’t let the simple ingredient list fool you – these wholesome pancakes are full of flavor.

First, while the griddle preheats over medium, you’ll whisk the mashed bananas with the egg until you get a creamy batter. A few banana chunks are OK here, especially if you want some chunks in your pancakes.

Now, you’re ready to cook. Scoop about 2 generous tablespoons of batter onto the hot griddle for each pancake to make about 8 pancakes. These pancakes work best on the smaller side. Cook each pancake about 2-3 minutes, until a peek at the underside looks golden, then flip and cook another 2-3 minutes. These pancakes are a little more delicate than your average flapjack, so be gentle on the flip.

Enjoy them as is, or let them be a blank canvas for your favorite pancake toppings. You can go classic with a drizzle of maple syrup or mix things up with some fresh fruit or almond butter.
