If you’re looking for an easy breakfast that’s healthy, has protein so you’ll stay satisfied longer, and something the kids will eat, you’ll love this recipe for 2-ingredient banana pancakes.
With 2 eggs and 1 banana, these quick-and-easy pancakes are naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, and Paleo-friendly. The bananas add natural sweetness while the eggs give you a nice amount of protein that will keep you and your children satisfied longer than most typical pancake recipes.
I can’t even remember when or where I first discovered this recipe – it was a few years ago. I can’t claim this as my creation; now I see it all over the internet. But it’s too good not to share with you.
There are very few breakfast recipes that both my kids and I love equally and this 2-ingredient banana pancake recipe is definitely one of them. I eat these as much as my children!
One serving has 1 banana and 2 eggs and makes 4-5 small pancakes or 2-3 medium to large pancakes. It’s so good you’ll feel like you’re indulging but this breakfast won’t give you the mid-morning crash you might get from regular pancakes. (At least that’s what happens to me when I eat regular gluten-free pancakes.)
