3 Ingredient Pancakes (GF)

Turns out, you can make a pancake out of most anything. I heard rumors of a 2 ingredient pancake and was skeptical, but once I tried it out, I saw for myself! Although just eggs and a banana works well enough, I prefer the slightly heartier texture with ¼ cup oats added.

These are the simplest and healthiest pancakes I have ever made! They're great when you want a wholesome but comforting snack. They taste a bit eggy, but in a pleasant way. I like spicing them up with a little cinnamon and nutmeg and they're tasty plain or drizzled with maple syrup or honey. These will turn out just fine without baking powder, but I do recommend adding it since it amps up the fluffiness factor. 

3 Ingredient Pancakes
Makes 3 large or 5-6 small pancakes

  • 1 ripe/overripe banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
Optional add ins:
  • 1/4 cup quick oats (use GF oats, if wanted)
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg
  • chocolate chips
  • nuts
Mash the banana. Mix together with eggs and quick oats in a medium bowl. Combine with any desired add ins. Coat a skillet with cooking spray and cook pancakes over medium heat. I found that these need a little longer than your standard pancakes because of the egg ratio.

I hope that everyone had a very happy holiday season! Ours was splendid-we got the best of all worlds-we threw a dessert party with our friends in Cville before spending time with my family before Christmas celebrating my mom's birthday, sharing extravagant dinners, baking Christmas cookies and seeing the lights at the Washington DC temple. 
Then we spent Christmas Eve in the airport so we could make it to Utah in time for Christmas morning! It was such a treat to see my little nephews open their presents and hang out with our family in the West. It had been way too long since we'd seen them!
