YES, you read that right. TWO ingredients! I saw a friend post a photo of her 2 ingredient creation last weekend and I immediately set out to make some for myself and the hubby. I was extremely happy with the results that I've already made them twice this week. So much more effortless than normal pancakes, very delicious, and the best part: guilt free! Even the hubby whose least favorite food is eggs devoured them.
You Will Need:
- 2 eggs
- 1 large banana
Now these are the basic ingredients. You can make the pancakes using just the above
2 or you can add a few more optional ingredients if you have them on hand, such as:
- baking powder (1/8 teaspoon) - highly recommended as it makes the pancakes fluffier
- ground cinnamon (1/4 teaspoon) - also recommended as it adds a nice flavor
- fruit (I tried them with frozen blueberries and pomegranates - yum!)
- chocolate chips
- whatever you like in your pancakes
Throw the eggs and banana (and baking powder and cinnamon if using them) into a food processor or blender and blend together. If you do not have one of these devices, just mash the banana and then add the eggs (and optional ingredients) and stir together. If using fruit or chocolate chips, add while the pancake is cooking rather than mixing into the batter (see next step).
Lightly grease a griddle or non stick pan with oil or cooking spray and heat on medium heat (if you only have a stainless steel pan, read on). Pour a little bit of batter into the pan to form circles. These pancakes are best made small and thin. Add fruit and/or chocolate chips on the top of the pancake right after you pour the batter in, otherwise they will stick and burn to the pan (I learned this the hard way).
