Whether you’re a paleo eater, a gluten-free eater, or just looking for a quick way to shake up your breakfast routine, this yummy recipe is a keeper.
I first learned about 2-ingredient Paleo Pancakes a year or so ago, when I go serious about focusing on paleo-friendly food for my family. A long time baker and cupcake lover, I wasn’t sure I could live without those baked morning basics–French Toast, Pancakes, and Waffles. So happening upon a supremely simple recipe like this one here was a lifemaker.
There are a lot of paleo pancake recipes out there. People have gotten all sorts of excited about the basic combo of bananas and eggs. But I like to stick to the basics. Why add 7 other ingredients when two simple ones make splendidly simple, totally delicious pancakes? Yeah. I agree. Two ingredients is brilliant enough. We don’t need to go bollocks it up with a bunch of other add-ins.
If you do want to play, however, this recipe is great with a sprinkle of cinnamon. A teaspoon of vanilla. Or a splash of fresh lemon juice. Boost the protein in your pancakes by adding 1/2 cup of almond flour and 1/4 cup of almond milk. Or, just keep it plain like we do. Dirty one bowl and one dish, and enjoy a plate of healthy, gluten-free pancakes in 5 minutes flat.
Keep in mind, the ripeness of your bananas will alter the taste of these pancakes. I prefer to use a banana with green tips. It keeps the flavor only mildly tinted with banana, and still has enough start to keep the texture of the pancakes pretty durn perfect. A ripe banana or green banana also work. Ripe bananas will give you a sweeter pancake, and green bananas may take just a bit more blending to get the batter properly pureed.
No matter what color your banana, you seriously can not go wrong with these yummy pancakes. Whip ’em up and enjoy. They’re gluten-free, guilt-free, and deeelish.
