I love pancakes, and when I saw Cassey from Blogilates post a picture of ’2 ingredient pancakes’ on Instagram, I knew that I had to give them a go!

This is seriously the EASIEST pancake recipe in the world, as it’s made from just two ingredients.. bananas & eggs! I’ve made these pancakes a few times now and have put together my top ‘pancake perfecting tips’ together in this blog post!

P.S. You can check out all of my pancake recipe [here]!



  • 1 medium-large banana
  • 2 whole medium eggs

Optional: 1-2 tbsp PPB or chocolate chips!



Step 1

Slice the banana into a bowl and mash with a fork, potato masher or a hand blender (the easiest!)

Step 2

Add the eggs and mash into the banana until you have a smooth 'batter'

Step 3

Heat some oil in a non-stick pan (I used coconut oil in a small, flat pan which meant the mixture didn't stick or spread out too much!) and pour a small amount of the mixture in, to create your pancake shape!

Step 4

Cook on a low-medium heat (I used heat 4 out of 9) until you are able to flip it (with a spatula) and cook on the other side (this takes a few minutes)

Step 5

Repeat for the rest of the mixture & serve the entire batch with your chosen topping before enjoying!


Do let me know if you try them & what toppings you choose! – my choice is always yoghurt, frozen berries & cinnamon! :)

    I love these! I made them with grated apple too and they were lush. I made some in the evening then put them in Tupperware and took them to work in the morn – just heated them up in the micro! Winner.

    These are so good, I mad them again this morning but instead of using 2 whole eggs I used one egg and 2 egg whites! Perfect for my nutritional needs! X

    I made these for myself and my boyfriend (who is a sugar demon) and I have to say that they are delicious! I love the fact they are so easy to make and don’t contain lots of expensive ingredients. We have put these at the top of our list for breakfast and plan to make the Greek yoghurt pancakes next weekend :) Nic definitely knows what she is doing when guiding people towards a healthier lifestyle!

    These were amazing! I struggled not to burn them a little though- so perhaps I should have turned the heat down! Read about it here! http://welcometomyworldxoxo.wordpress.com/2014/01/06/sunday-brunch-healthy-pancake-stack-2/ Thanks Nic you’re so great x

    I made these for myself and my mom, but using egg white with mashed banana, im vegetarian and I live by a strict diet and have soya milk/ soya yoghurts and I don’t like eggs or the yellow bit in it but by using egg white and tiny bit of soya milk instead it tasted lovely.. we served the pancakes with soya yog at the side, handful of blueberries/raspberries and a drizzle of honey.

    Nic normally I love your recipes but I just made tense and they were inedible – tasted like an omelette – not good

    • posted by Nics Nutrition on January 25, 2014

      Oh no! So many people have had success with this recipe – perhaps your banana wasn’t big/ripe enough! They are usually so sweet, had them this morning :) x

    Must admit, I was really sceptical when I saw the minimal ingredients for these pancakes but I decided to give them a go this morning.
    Can’t believe I didn’t try them sooner!
    These are definitely my new favourite, especially when drizzled with Walden Farm’s Caramel Syrup.
    Thanks for sharing another great recipe.

    First recipe I’ve made…won’t be the last! Deeeelicious. Filling too. Perfect way of using 2 eggs and 1 banana for an almighty tasty brekkie. Thank you x

    Had to leave a comment because I can’t believe how much I enjoyed these pancakes! I won’t be making pancakes any other way from now on! I used a banana that was vey ripe too which made them extra sweet! Thanks!

    Hi Nic :)

    Just wondering, do you think they would keep overnight? As in, would I be able to make them at night time, pop them in a lunch box and they be ok for the morning? I’ve just started the paleo diet and am getting sick of eating egg muffins haha, thought these would be perfect for me for breakfast but I don’t have time to make and eat them before work? Thanks so much

    Made these today, so scrummy and saved me from serious sugar cravings. Popped a post about it linking to you over at my blog, hope that’s ok!

    Eggs are dairy though? Would a flaxseed/chia seed “egg” work instead?

    • posted by Nics Nutrition on September 4, 2014

      Yes it should :) x PS eggs aren’t dairy – they are from a chicken, not a cow!!

    These are amazing, mine didn’t look as nice as yours (think I need a new pan). I didn’t put any topping on them as they were just fab on their own. Thank you
