Two-Ingredient Banana Pancakes

Can you really make a pancake from just two ingredients? Yes! These pancakes cook up into a tender, flavorful cake, ready for a drizzle of maple syrup.

  • Yield: 2 pancakes


  • 1 banana
  • 2 eggs
  • Coconut oil for frying
  • Maple syrup and your favorite pancake toppings


  1. Step 1

    Peel and slice a banana and place it in a mixing bowl. Use a fork to mash the banana until it is very smooth.

  2. Step 2

    Crack the eggs into a bowl. Use a fork to whisk the eggs until blended, then add to the mashed banana, stirring until combined.

  3. Step 3

    Ask an adult to heat ½ teaspoon coconut oil in a non-stick pan or electric griddle over medium heat. Add half of the batter to the pan and cook until the pancake begins to look dry and you can easily slide a spatula underneath it. Use the spatula to flip the pancake and cook the other side until golden brown. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining batter. Serve the pancakes with maple syrup and your favorite toppings.
