Healthy Two-Ingredient Banana Pancakes

Banana "Pancakes" Are a Healthy Substitute

While these "pancakes" don't have the same texture as real pancakes, I think calling them "banana pancakes" rather than "banana omelets" makes them sound a bit tastier. You can always slap on some butter, peanut butter, or maple syrup to make these babies feel closer to a real pancake experience!

They're a bit hard to flip, so be careful. Try not to cook too many at a time, and make them small enough that they mostly fit on your spatula. This will help prevent them from breaking as you flip them.

Tips

  • Riper bananas are more flavorful.
  • Bananas that are less ripe will make the pancakes firmer.
  • Adding an extra banana makes the pancakes much sweeter.
  • Adding an extra egg makes the pancakes much firmer.
