I'm sure you have seen or tried the 2 ingredient banana pancakes made with only eggs and bananas all over the Internet. Although they will never replace my regular pancakes made with flour, I enjoy whipping up a batch for a quick breakfast or as a snack. I wanted to take the pancakes to another level by packing in more nutrition so I added hemp seeds and all-natural peanut butter. The result was a pancake that was not only packed with more nutrients, but also a super easy, flour-free pancake that is fluffier and tastes better than the traditional 2 ingredient pancakes!
Try these pancakes for a post-workout snack or when you are looking for something to get you through to the end of the day.
These pancakes are:
Packed with protein
Healthy fat friendly (Omega 3 & 6)
When I am having these pancakes for breakfast, I add a little drizzle of Maple syrup and a dollop of peanut butter.
Since these aren't your traditional pancakes, the batter is a bit different. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you make these pancakes with ease:
Use a very ripe or over ripe banana
Mash the banana very well with a fork until you have a smooth paste
Add the egg in last. This will help mix in all the ingredients well
Make your pancakes small so it is easy to flip
The best thing about these pancakes is that you can change it up by adding in mix-ins such as:
Dark chocolate chips
Chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts, peanuts)
Swap peanut butter with almond butter or another nut butter
