Healthy 2-Ingredient Pancakes: Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free & Refined Sugar-Free

When you’re short on time in the morning, I know how tempting it can be to grab something quick for breakfast. Unfortunately, most “grab-n-go” options involve a package with a laundry list of unhealthy ingredients and a hefty serving of refined sugar. In addition to containing health-sabotaging ingredients, these processed options will not keep you full for long, if at all, because they contain minimal nutritional value. (There’s a big difference between being fed and being nourished.)

I have good news! You can make delicious and filling pancakes in a matter of minutes with just two natural ingredients that are free of dairy, gluten and refined sugar. SCORE!


Below are the 2 simple ingredients you need to make these delicious pancakes:

  • 2 eggs (preferably from organically-fed, free-range chickens)
  • 1 very ripe banana (preferably with brown spots)



  1. Choose your pan. I prefer to make 2 pancakes that are about 6 inches in diameter using a small skillet like this. You could also use a large skillet to make one big pancake. Or, you could make silver dollar pancakes using a pan like this. (I find non-toxic ceramic cookware to work the best for cooking pancakes and many other things – you can find an outstanding selection with unbeatable quality from Xtrema here. Or, you can find a less expensive selection from WearEver here on amazon.)
  2. Warm your chosen pan over medium heat and then coat it with coconut oil.
  3. As the pan is heating, put the banana into a mixing bowl and mash it well with a fork. Then, add the eggs and beat them together with the banana until you have a smooth batter. Or, you can throw the banana and eggs into a high-speed blender (I recommend the Blendtec for exceptional performance) and blend until smooth.
  4. Add the batter to the pan and let it cook until the bottom is firm. Then, flip it and cook until the underside is done.
  5. Optional: Garnish with fresh berries.
  6. ENJOY!


Optional Additions:

  • The pancakes should have plenty of natural sweetness from the ripe banana. If you must add syrup, however, opt for a quality maple syrup that’s pure and organic like this one.
  • You can add a few dashes of cinnamon to the pancake batter or sprinkle it on top of the cooked pancakes for a cinnamon-tastic flare.
  • If you like the flavor of vanilla, toss a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract into the batter mix before cooking.

Kid Approved!
Not only are these 2-ingredient pancakes a fast and nutritious option, they are also a huge hit with the kiddos!

Cheers to enjoying healthy pancakes that are easy to make and will leave you nourished and feeling satisfied!
