Ally's Sweet and Savory Eats: 3-Ingredient Banana Pancakes

3-Ingredient Banana Pancakes


Yep, that is all you need!  Eggs, bananas and oatmeal.  Oh, and maybe a blender or food processor to grind up the oatmeal.  Just these three ingredients for some healthy, different, yet tasty pancakes.

I'm not going to lie, these don't taste like your typical buttermilk, fluffy, great-tasting pancakes.  The texture is  a bit different, yet similar.  Am I confusing you yet?

And here is the kicker - you can easily make this a two ingredient pancake and omit the ground oatmeal, but I like how the oatmeal gives it a bit more fluffier texture.  Or...use almond flour like many do to keep this recipe paleo.  I know very little about paleo, but this girl does.


I made these last weekend and little miss kept screaming {and I'm not kidding when I say screaming, she does not have volume switch}...."more pancake!"  I couldn't make them fast enough.  She is so impatient.  Must get that from her father.

A drizzle of maple syrup, peanut butter, homemade jam or even fresh fruit and yogurt would be fantastic on these.  Although I am partial to keeping them traditional - butter and maple syrup.


3-Ingredient Banana Pancakes
{Print this Recipe!}
3/4 to one whole very ripe banana
2 eggs
1/4 c. finely ground oatmeal

Ground oatmeal in a food processor or blender until it resembles fine crumbs.  In a bowl mash banana with both of the eggs.  Stir in ground oatmeal to form the batter.

In a greased skillet on medium heat pour in batter.  Cook low and slow, about 4-5 minutes on the first side until bottom is browned and ready to flip.  Cook another 1-2 minutes on the other side.

Suggested add-ins: mini chocolate chips, coconut, granola, dried fruit.

Who is going to give these a try?

So.

A few housekeeping issues.

For some ungodly reason Google Reader has decided to stop its services on July 1.  If you aren't familiar with Google Reader, it's okay.  For those that use it to follow ALL of our favorite blogs {like me}, it's kind of a big deal.

See the section underneath my photo and the ad box, where there is a button that allows you to "follow" me?  That will be gone.  Ugh.  No fun.

So there are a few solutions.

1.  You can enter your email into the line at the top right of my screen {directly above my photo} and that will give you all my posts directly into your inbox shortly after I post them.  Which is kinda nice....most check their email daily anyway, so now I can come directly to your inbox.

2.  Or you can follow me through Bloglovin'.  Just click on the link below.

3.  Or you can follow my posts on Facebook and Twitter.

4.  Or you can be really old school and manually type in my webpage address every other day when I post.

Whatever works for you!

  2. Omg I am devastated about google reader. Are you going to use bloglovin to follow blogs? I don't know what I'm going to use in place of reader! I'm going to try these pancakes on my kiddos this weekend. They aren't a fan of the two ingredients ones so maybe adding the oats will work! :)

  6. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
