Why I Love This Recipe

A quick way to make pancakes for 2 without having to make a large batch of batter. The base recipe is very simple, but can be customized to suit individual tastes and preferences. If you like banana bread, you'll probably like these pancakes as well!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 ripe/overripe banana
1 egg
1/4 cup flour of choice, including gluten-free options (we really like a mix of almond and buckwheat flour)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Butter for cooking
splash of good vanilla extract
berries of choice
chocolate chips
powdered sugar


Peel banana and place in bowl and mash to your heart's content.

Crack egg into bowl and mix together.

Add in flour and baking soda and mix until combined.

Add in any optional mix-ins for additional flavor, if desired.

Heat pan on stove over medium-low to medium heat and melt butter. I use a non-stick pan, but use whichever pan you're comfortable using and adjust amount of butter as needed, since some pans may need more to prevent sticking.

Scoop out approximately 1/4 of the batter and pour into pan to form one pancake. Repeat to form one more pancake in pan to cook two pancakes at a time.

Cook until underside is browned to your liking, then flip. Bubbles will NOT form on top surface like they do with conventional pancake mixes.

When both sides are cooked, move to an oven set to WARM while you cook the remaining 2 pancakes.

Plate your pancakes and add your toppings of choice. Feel free to use paper stencils to make fun patterns if sprinkling powdered sugar on top.
