Pancakes have always been a favorite of mine, and I’m not just talking breakfast; I could seriously eat pancakes for every single meal. That’s why I was so excited to find a version that was not only lighter and healthier, but so much easier & quicker  to make.

Today’s recipe is just too easy not to share. Not only are these pancakes gluten free (totally grain free, actually), but they only require two ingredients, and contain no added oil or sugar! Oh, and they take WAY less time than the regular variety.

Ingredients:
-2 eggs (or egg whites, or flax egg for vegan)
-1 medium banana (ripe or even a little overripe is perfect)

Directions:
-In a small mixing bowl, mash together 1 medium banana and 2 eggs until mixed (I just use a fork, no fancy equipment here)
-Add mixture to a griddle or pan on medium heat and flip once lightly browned.
-Serve with banana slices, fresh berries, or whatever you like.

Though these only require 2 ingredients to make, I also love to experiment by adding other things to the batter or on top. Some favorites have been almond butter, chia seeds, flax seeds, walnuts, fresh or frozen berries, cinnamon, or whatever else is on hand. The possibilities are endless. 🙂
