'2 ingredient' pancakes

I was browsing on Pinterest last night and found this recipe. I also remembered that my friend Sarah also posted her variation of this on her blog as well. So I decided to give it a try.

The base is two ingredients and then you can add whatever you want in them. I like my blueberries and cinnamon, so that is what I added.
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 T flax seed
  • 1/3 c. frozen blueberries


Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup and scoop just less than the full cup. Pour into an oiled pan. Pre-heated on medium heat. If you let the batter sit for a few minutes, you will get the little bubbles that normally form in pancakes which are a wonderful little built in timer of when to flip them :)


I found them a bit hard to flip so next time I might add a wee bit of flour, just to help bind the ingredients.


Ta-da! You have healthy, guilt-free pancakes. I entered the recipe into MyFitnessPal as 2 pancakes per serving (my recipe made 10 pancakes) and the following is an approximate of the nutritional values:
  • 120 calories
  • 23 carbs
  • 2 fat
  • 4 protein
  • 4 fibre
  • 6 iron
I had 3 this morning at 6:50AM because I wasn't sure how filling they would be and I was actually full until my break at 9:30AM. I actually could have gone without eating on my break but banana and almond butter is messy in a class room (I'm in training). I think I still prefer my whole grain pancakes but these are a great alternative.
