Healthy 2 Ingredient Pancakes (Paleo, Gluten & Dairy-Free, No Sugar added)

Simple, quick and easy to make. With just 2 ingredients, these pancakes are paleo, gluten-free, dairy free, grain free, and no sugar added. They come together in a few minutes and make the perfect healthy pancakes. Healthy 2 Ingredient Pancakes (Paleo, Gluten & Dairy-Free, No Sugar added)One of my New Year’s resolutions is to eat healthier. I make the resolution every year but a few weeks in, I give up. This year, I’m thinking of giving the paleo diet a go. My husband has been on the paleo diet a few months now and he’s always raving about it. He’s always whipping up delicious low-carb paleo recipes and I’m always there to help him eat the dishes ☺️

These 2 ingredients banana pancakes are one of his favorites. We’ve made them a few dozen times in the past year and every time we do, my husband says that he can’t believe it’s just eggs and bananas!

It’s hard to believe, isn’t it? Just an egg and a banana will make these moist and delicious pancakes. They literally take 30 seconds to prep and another minute to cook!

2 ingrident banana pancakes (6 of 8)Now, if you’re expecting the classic carb filled pancakes then you will be disappointed. The texture of these pancakes is rather dense and moist unlike regular pancakes. If you’re on a paleo, low carb or trying to lose weight, then you will love these.

Here are some tips to get the perfect result each time you make the pancakes.

  • Because there’s no flour in the pancakes, there’s nothing holding the pancakes together so be sure to keep the pancakes small ( I use 2 tablespoons of batter per pancake)
  • Be careful when flipping the pancakes, it helps to use a thin spatula.
  • Add nuts, chocolate chips or any other toppings after the pancake is on the skillet.

Talking about toppings, feel free to add whatever toppings you wish in the pancakes after you’ve poured the batter into the skillet. We find that nuts and/or chocolate chips go really well in these pancakes. A tablespoon of coco or protein powder is another great option if that’s your thing. If not, these pancakes taste seriously good on their own ????

  • 2 medium ripe banana
  • 2 medium eggs
  • Butter or oil for the pan
  • Optional extras:
  • 2-3 tablespoons almond meal
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder or protein powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder for fluffy pancakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips or fresh berries
  • pinch of cinnamon


  • Peel the banana and break it up into several big chunks in a bowl. gently mash the bananas into smaller chunks using a fork. Add the eggs to the mashed bananas and stir with the fork until you have a custard-like consistency. The batter will be runny and should have a few clumps of bananas. (optional: add 1/4 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, pinch of cinnamon, 1 tablespoon coco-powder)

  • Heat a griddle over medium heat and Melt in about 1/4 teaspoon of butter in the pan. Drop the batter on a hot griddle: Drop roughly 2 tablespoons of batter onto the hot griddle. This would be a good time to add the nuts, chocolate chips or berries if desired.

  • Cook for 1 minutes or until the bottoms look browned and golden when you lift a corner.
  • Gently flip the pancakes and cook for another minute on the other side.Transfer the cooked pancakes to a serving plate and continue cooking the rest of the batter.

  • Serve Pancakes warm; they are best when eaten fresh off the griddle and still warm. Serve with maple syrup, honey, or any extra toppings.

    THIS RECIPE IS JUST OKAY. I ADDED SOME OF THE OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS – baking soda, oats, vanilla, chocolate chips. I may or maynot make this recipe again.


    I never leave comments! But!!! This was perfect and hit the spot! I added oats to the mixture and yum! Thank you for the recipe. Love it.


      So glad it worked out for you Grace!


    Horrible, tastes like eggs


    This is a joke, right? I ended up with an Eggy, burnt, Banana mess. :/ i am a seasoned cook and can make anything. I had a feeling something wasn’t going right but i tried many times. Each time, they are burnt and taste like egg omelettes with banaNa.

    I just tried making these for our 3 year old daughter who loves bananas and they turned out absolutely delicious!!! She loves them and I love them so this weekend I will make them for my husband as well. I didn’t add anything to them because the sweetness of the banana flavored them plenty enough. This is my new favorite go-to breakfast food 🙂


    Tip: Beat the egg whites separately and then fold into the mixed mashed banana/Yolks. Not only will this create a fluffier batter that stays where you put it – but it creates perfect pillowy pancakes!


    Can you cook these in a waffle iron?


      I have not tried in a waffle iron but that sounds like a great idea! Do update us if you try it.


    What is tthe serving siZe


    did not work at all. just was mush in my pan and a big mess.


      Add oats it works great

    this is looks to a delicious meal for my hom, cant wait to try it.


    how many pancakes per serving??


      It yields 8-10 pancakes, states enough for two servings, and the nutritional info is per serving. So depending on your pancake size it is about 4-5 pancakes per serving. 185 calories for 4-5 pancakes or half of whatever is yielded in one batch.


    how many pancakes for one serving??


    This is a great recipe! I just have one question: is there 185 calories in only one small ?


    I truly Love this recipe. I also add PBfit peanut butter powder, flax seed, vanilla extract, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking powder, chocolate chips, and sometimes I’ll add organic cacao powder. It’s truly delicious and this is coming from someone who absolutely hates bananas. Haha.


    This is one of my all time favourite breakfasts for a Saturday morning. I add oats into the mixture which, I find, helps thicken it and it has more of a batter consistency 🙂 Delicious!!


    Been making these for about 1/2 year now and they get better each time I make them. I have also made them the night before so I had something really good for breakfast the next morning and they warm nicely in the microwave.


      Thanks for all the great tips, Cora! It takes a little time to get these pancakes right but with patience they are delicious!


    I tried them in the frying pan, with no success. After my miserable failure, I BAKED them in the toaster oven on parchment paper for ~10 minutes at 350. PERFECTION!


    these were great! worked much better than the ones from genius kitchen’s recipe with 2 eggs and one banana. These were very easy to make even though I’m only 12 and have little cooking experience. Great recipe overall!


    I love these pancakes already.


    Definitely 5 stars


    Love this recipe- thank you for sharing it.


    Mine were the texture of egg flavored lime banana…nobody ate them…gross

    I absolutely love this recipe! I made this for my kids and myself. I like that I was able to sneak in a banana without them knowing. For variation, I was wondering how much flour or oats I could add to make it more like a regular crispy pancake. This way it’s a meal in one. I’ll have the grain, egg, and banana. Thank you and keep up the good healthy breakfast work!



    I used one medium banana WITH peel and blended it with one free range egg and one spoon of gluten free flour, with a dash of sea salt. Worked perfectly, fried in coconut oil at low heat. Keep them small.
    Banana peel has many health benefits, including soluble & insoluble fibre (great for your gut).

    Honestly, amazing information. I will follow these tips. Keep share more.


    Mine were impossible to flip. Realy sweet, but not much like a pancake. It would be easier to grill or saute the bananas, pretty much the same flavor. You do need to keep them small to have a chance of flipping.


    Can these be made ahead and frozen/re-heated? I like do a fair chunk of my weekday food prep on Sundays – for super quick grab ‘n go breakfasts — since I am Not a morning person 😉
