You’ve seen popular 2-ingredient banana pancake recipe, haven’t you? It was early 2013, when I learned about this magic recipe. I was intrigued and it didn’t take me long to try it. Truthfully, it wasn’t bad. For just two ingredients, it really delivered pretty real pancakes. But I thought it could be better.

Hence I doctored mine with a few additional ingredients to land on my version of very best banana pancakes.

The other day, I made this for myself for breakfast and thought I’d also snap a few photos to bring new life to this oldie, but goodie!

You really don’t need much for these pancakes.

When I just used banana and egg, the pancakes were coming out a little soggy-ish and wet. So to fix that I added teeny tiny bit of flour. And for additional flavor notes, I also added cinnamon powder, vanilla extract and a small pinch of salt, just simple things you already have on hand.

These banana pancakes tend to be a bit sweet, that’s why salt helps to tone it down a bit.

And as you can see below, it’s unbelievably easy to make. This recipe serves just one person, but you can easily double, or triple it to feed more mouths!

PS: If using non-stick skillet, you don’t need to use any oil or butter. I promise it works. But if you so choose to, no one will stop you from adding a little butter. Just saying…

Serve your pile of pancakes with fresh fruits, dollop of greek yogurt and some maple syrup. It’s simply amazing combination.

You won’t even feel like eating healthy, because you know, you’re having pancakes!! So enjoy it!!

  1. My kids love banana pancakes and my husband is the chief pancake maker here so I will be sharing this one with him! He makes them pretty much every weekend!

  2. The two ingredient pancakes almost never work for me, especially because I’m more of an egg white girl! These look delicious and I can’t wait to try them- I do pancakes EVERY Sunday and these are on the list for this upcoming Sunday 🙂 Do you think they would work using only egg whites?

  3. Delicious! I just finished devouring them– made a beautiful stack of 6. So fluffy and fragrant. Thanks for the recipe! 

  4. I just made these and they were do yummy! I added an extra teaspoon if whole wheat to fluffed them up 🙂

  5. tried it today , tasted so delish . Thanks for sharing your recipe with us .

  6. ммм гоё амттай харагдаж байна шүү. Бананыг хазаад идэхээс өөрөөр хэрэглэдэггүй байсан сүү, тарагтай холиод шейк хийж уусан их гоё юм билээ.
    зун болоод банана элбэгшээд ирвэл ийм панкэйк хийж иднээ
