My 2 ingredient pancake disaster.

My sister sent me a post on gluten free two ingredient pancakes.  While I have no need to be gluten free I was intrigued and thought I would try them.  If there was really a way for me to make pancakes with two ingredients then I was all for it!

Here is the recipe from

1 large banana, mashed (should be around 1/3 to 1/2 cup when mashed)
2 eggs
optional add ins:
1/8 tsp baking powder (see notes)
2 tbsp nut butter, pb2/peanut flour, almond flour or dessicated coconut (see notes)
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup blueberries/ raspberries/ chopped nuts
2 tbsp mini chocolate chips

Peel and mash the banana, stir in the egg. Mix in any non-chunky add ins that you want (e.g. nut flours or butters, baking powder…).

Heat a non stick skillet and lightly spray with oil. Tun the heat down to medium-low.

Pour a circle of batter into the pan (I used about 1 or 2 tbsp of batter per pancake).

Cook until golden brown on the underside (around 1 minute) sprinkle on any chunky ingredients (e.g. chocolate chips, fruit, nuts, if using), then use a metal spatula to flip and cook until golden brown on the other side (30 seconds to 1 minute).

Serve warm with whatever the heck you want

Here is what I used:

I followed the directions and did a few add ons as suggested. Here they are:

At this point my kid is starving and there is no way I could serve this so I went for french toast.  I butter the bread in mango butter, dipped it in my egg and banana tango mix and made it work.

I am absolutely never going to try this again every in my life.  Eveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer!
