Dear Leah Renee,
Do you have an easy pancake recipe you like that is gluten free and kid-friendly? I have an food sensitive household so I need it to appeal to all! Thanks! ~Pat, NM
Pancakes. One of life’s little pleasures. There are so many ways to enjoy them, I suppose that’s why they have an entire “house” that serves just that! As you probably already know from my site, I’m a fan of simple. Well, these are so simple there are just two ingredients: banana and egg. Yes. That is all. No grain. No gluten. No added sugar. So why are they so good? I really don’t know–they just are.
The most amount of work you will encounter in making these is mashing up the ripe banana. Depending how ripe it is, that’s where you will get an easier mash and a sweeter taste. It’s completely up to you if you want to take this 2 ingredient recipe and make it into more, but I personally like to add anything extra at the end (like sliced fruit, berries, nut butter, cinnamon, honey). I occasionally add blueberries to the mix in the cooking process, which you’ll see here. The recipe is below!
Side note: I always use organic ingredients when possible, and I always use pasture raised eggs usually by Vital Farms. I have learned too too much about the ‘treatment’ (that’s a nice word) of hens and support with my dollar where I know they’re treated ethically and humanely. 🙂
- 2 eggs (yolk included)
- 1 ripe medium size banana (the riper the better!)
- Mash the banana in a bowl until it's chunk-free. Add the two eggs and whip all together until mixed well. In a medium size pan on medium heat (greased with coconut or other oil of choice), spoon the mixture into the hot pan (you choose the size pancakes you want!). Cook and flip the pancake to cook other side. Enjoy!
- Add whatever you like at the end as you would regular pancakes. Some of my faves are cinnamon, almond butter, berries, and honey.
