Banana egg pancakes are a super simple and protein packed 2 ingredient breakfast. It will leave you satisfied and full until lunch, while feeling like a treat!
Banana egg pancakes were the first kind of pancakes I’ve ever had for breakfast. Pancakes for breakfast is just not an Austrian thing to eat, although it’s gaining popularity fast (I can see why 😉). I was introduced to this concept of 2 ingredient pancakes when I was getting into Blogilates workouts, as Cassey did a video on them – from that point onwards, I was hooked. They are super simple, taste delicious and are even gluten-free and paleo, as they are grain-free.
When I started my Instagram about 2 years ago, I was (loosely) participating in the New Body Makeover from Blogilates. This was also the time when I read about those two-ingredient banana pancakes in her meal plan for the first time (and also saw the video on them, like mentioned above). Having such an incredibly simple, but dessert like food item for breakfast, seemed to be too good to be true. That’s when I got hooked on them and that’s also when I really started to get into Instagram – which eventually lead to this blog.
You might wonder what the rest of the title is about? Well. I’ve got a little confession to make. I’ve been trying so hard to please my readers (which I assume are in a large part vegan) with recently only posting vegan recipes, that I feel like I lost myself. Whenever I share something on social media, I think “Will this offend anyone?” Well, turns out, no matter what you do, you can never please everyone. I better be unapologetically myself. Authentic and real with you. I felt constricted and just not like myself. Also, I had never intended this to be “just” a food blog (as you might have realized from my other posts lately). I’m aware that the recipes are probably what most of you come here for, but probably you like some personality too, some travel and well, some posts about my journey to an ecologically sustainable lifestyle without feeling like I’m “missing out” – because yeah, that feeling definitely tries to creep up on me at times. I’m in no way perfect and still trying to find my way in so many aspects of my life – and I want to be able to share it with you in an honest and authentic way. This also means that there will be more recipes on the blog that are not vegan. Banana pancakes are a perfect example for this – whenever I post them on Instagram, I always get some people that unfollow because of that. It’s sad, but I have to accept that whatever I do, there will always be someone who doesn’t like it. So I hope you stay with me and continue to enjoy my recipes. If you are vegan, don’t fret – most of my recipes will still be vegan, so just ignore the ones that don’t fit your dietary preferences. 😉
So let me start this, by just sharing those 2 ingredients banana egg pancakes with you. I don’t even want to call it a recipe, because it’s really so super simple!
- 1 banana (ripe)
- 2 eggs
- Coconut Oil for cooking the pancakes
- Mash the banana in a little bowl and crack the eggs into the bowl as well.
- Mix well and heat up a pan with a little bit of coconut oil.
- Pour the mixture in the pan to achieve the desired pancake size - I make them rather large, because I'm lazy. The are easier to flip though, the smaller they are.
- Cook on both sides and enjoy!
I hope you guys have a great week, with delicious breakfast (probably banana egg pancakes!) and good conversations! If you enjoy this recipe and want to keep up to date, please subscribe, check out the Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter or Pinterest to see what inspires me!
