Recipe: Too Easy Two-Ingredient Pancake

Breakfast Recipes

By: Chris Freytag, CPT

The beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity and down-to-earth ingredients. When I stumbled upon the many variations of this gluten-free, grain-free and dairy-free pancake on Pinterest, I never expected them to taste so delicious and be so easy to prepare. It’s great for college students who might not have the disposable income to spend on a lot of ingredients or on-the-go adults who don’t have the time in the morning to prepare a healthy breakfast. The two ingredients are a banana and an egg, which form a great base and allow a lot of imagination in the types of spices and add-ins you want to use. I decided to go for cinnamon, nutmeg and pure maple syrup, but the options are limitless!

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 1 serving(s)


  • 1 large, ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • Optional Spices
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • Optional Toppings
  • Berries
  • Bananas
  • All-natural maple syrup (local if you can find it!)
  • Coconut whipped cream
  • Dark chocolate chips
  • Shredded coconut


  1. Mash the banana in a mixing bowl and stir in the egg until thoroughly combined.
  2. Then stir in the optional dry ingredients (cinnamon and nutmeg).
  3. Spray a pan with natural non-stick spray or melt 1 tsp. coconut oil and pour mixture into pan on medium-low heat.
  4. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  5. Enjoy with your choice of toppings!

Great recipe! I actually prefer to use a blender, because I never have enough time in the morning-and it gives a very smooth texture.

I've been looking for a stupid easy breakfast that doesn't require getting up earlier. Breakfast isn't my meal and mornings aren't my thing - this may be the ticket!

My partner and I gave these a go this morning. I absolutely loved it, delicious! However, my partner disagreed. He hated the "eggy banana" tate. I didn't think it tasted like eggy banana at all, it was quite sweet tasting.

    Try just egg whites for him, not whole egg?
