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 πŸ˜‰). 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)Β 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. πŸ˜‰

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. Right? I love it too – it’s my go to lazy pancake recipe. Whenever I want pancakes but really am too lazy to make any other kind of batter, those are my (super tasty) rescue πŸ˜€ I’m so happy that you actually come here for the person and are also interested in more personal posts <3 I really want to be connected with the people reading my blog, so that I'm not just a free online cookbook πŸ˜‰

    1. Thanks Alexa! You’ve got to be quite patient with banana pancakes – flip them a second too early and they will fall apart πŸ˜‰ That has happened to me on so many occasions that I started to call the result banana pancake scramble πŸ˜€

  1. Amazing post Kat! Although I am vegan myself, I am a big believer in being honest with yourself and doing whatever feels right. It’s awful how many bloggers blog about vegan food just because they hope to get more traffic. Anyway, you go girl! Love those pancakes, so simple πŸ™‚ Will try with chia eggs and see what happens πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet words, Lucie <3 Posting so many vegan recipes happened by "accident" at first for me - most of my recipes are breakfast recipes and as I'm dairy free, they happened to also be vegan πŸ˜‰ Let me know when you get around to try the recipes with a chia egg! I'm not sure they are going to stick together, as the eggs work as the binding agent here...and as they turn solid, they hold the pancake together.

  2. Good for you Kat! I definitely think it is more important to feel like you than to try to please everyone. And vegan or not those worries about being judged for posting always creep up, but I try to remind myself that it is just a recipe, just a comment, just a pancake after all πŸ™‚ I still fully support you no matter what, you are amazing and so creative <3

    1. Thank you so much for your support Natalie <3 I knew I could count on you being supportive no matter what! And you are right, after all, it's just a recipe or just a comment. I'm so grateful that we have connected online, you are such a kind and lovely person πŸ™‚

    1. I’m so glad you enjoy my non-recipe posts as well, Bianca πŸ™‚ And thank you very much – it really is impossible to please everyone, so I really want to try and go with what feels right for me. I hope people will feel that and enjoy that my heart is fully in it!

  3. Post what YOU want on YOUR blog!!! Always! I feel weird posting things that aren’t vegan on my blog, but I eat chicken…so what!? It’s my blog and I will post the wonderful recipes I actually eat! Haha! No shame, no labels, just good food!
    And, pumpkin pancakes were the first pancakes I ever made myself, and I can’t believe pancakes for breakfast isn’t that big of a thing!!! CRAZY people! Haha!

    1. I was actually surprised when I saw the chicken on your blog, because I had assumed you were veggie πŸ™‚ It looked really tasty, meat is so incredibly difficult to photograph that it actually looks appealing πŸ˜‰ That’s so important that you say “no shame, no labels, just good food”. I have to remember this. Because this shame or guilt sometimes definitely creeps up on me and is really not a healthy relationship to food. About pancakes for breakfast: people generally tend to eat a cold breakfast here: rolls with butter and jam or savory things. The way I eat breakfast is completely foreign to everyone around me πŸ˜€ They don’t know what they are missing out on!

  4. I love this! I think it’s so easy to post what we think our readers want as opposed to what we want and think is right for ourselves. As a friend of mine use to always say, “You do you, boo”. I think in people can spot authenticity in other people and as long as you’re true to yourself people will appreciate it

    1. Love what you friend says, Sarah! And I agree, I think people can feel it if your whole heart is in it or not. That’s a reason why I decided to write this post and “dare” to post this recipe. It really feels so good now that I did and the feedback here is incredible and so wonderful <3

    1. Thanks a million, NΓ³ri! They are totally do-able, even in the early morning-stages of waking up πŸ˜€ Just be patient with them – if you try to flip them before one side has set, they like to break πŸ˜‰

  5. I’m not a vegan…Ok now that I got that out of the way; I LOVE YOUR BLOG ;-)… I love the way you actually tell a story and not just simply put up a recipe…and to be honest, I really like your blog because is not only about food ;-), I love the way you transport me to amazing places you visit when you post about your travels, and I simply love your pictures…sure you might lose some followers, but what’s the point of gaining everybody if in the process you lose yourself? Always be true to yourself; keep it up Kat!!!

    1. Hahaha, good to know πŸ˜‰ Thank you so much for all your sweet words, they are very much appreciated. <3 And you are right, being true to yourself is incredibly important. Thank you!

  6. Oh, Kat — I totally know what you mean! Fear not though, even though it may seem like a vegan or non-vegan issue, the truth is that pretty much every blogger probably faces the same concerns. I know I definitely am! The type of audience I get is from all over the place, but includes a lot of vegans, a lot of paleo people, and a lot of people with celiac or food allergies. And I share recipes for all of that, but can’t please everyone at once — well sometimes I manage, but it’s pretty darn near impossible to create everything without “anything” haha. So I get the occasional vegan upset about the paleo title. I get paleo people upset about why I don’t commit to an entirely grain-free diet, I get the people allergic to soy or corn or oats complain any time I try to include those, I get people upset that earth balance is not eco-friendly, that my β€œhealthy” ingredients and allergy-substitutions are too expensive in their country, I get the nut allergic people asking for nut-free recipes, people who hate coconut, people who want oil-free recipes, who can’t eat chocolate, and people who get upset I use too many bananas {impossible! :D}. Anyhow… you get the point. Can’t please everybody, that’s for sure!

    I struggle with the same feelings every time I share a recipe β€” who will be upset this time? Should I stop eating so many bananas maybe… Should I continue not using honey in my recipes because some find it offensive? Should I do more of this and less of that even though I don’t like it…? I’ve recently just decided to let go as well. I share what I share. I even stopped using titles and labeling my recipes with diet-descriptive for the most part. I just want to share wholesome healthy recipes and if people love them that’s great β€” I’m happy!

    At the end of the day, even though I get these occasional “dislikers” or upset people, for the most part I feel like I have truly wonderful readers. I get so much mail from them with lots of gratitude — people are generally really appreciative of what I have to offer and I am happy to share with such people πŸ™‚ . Some of my readers have become my friends even — people I speak to regularly. And in continuing to blog I’ve made many wonderful blogging and Instagram friends who enjoy checking out my creations and posts — even if not everything is to their liking. So in the end I feel it’s worth it to be genuine.

    On a separate note, years ago when I used to eat eggs I used to make banana egg pancakes like this as well. I learned about them in the book β€œBreaking the Vicious Cycle” when I was following the SCD diet. I made mine into actual pancake shaped ones though, whereas yours look like most beautiful crepes. I used to love that recipe, especially with a sprinkle of cinnamon πŸ™‚

    1. Ah, Audrey – thank you so much for your support and your wonderful thoughts. <3 You are absolutely right - no matter what kind of (food)blog you have, there will always be someone who might get upset. To accommodate all diets, recipes would really have to be free from everything πŸ˜€ And there are really people who can't eat chocolate?! Oh my, I really feel for them πŸ™ Oh and too many bananas? Not possible!
      Letting go has felt so good - honestly. Especially with all this wonderful feedback I've gotten here - I really did not expect it. It has really strengthened me in my believe that being true to yourself and letting of what you think others expect from you is the best way. Really the only reason why I label my recipes is so that people can find it easier and if they follow a specific diet, they can see more easily that the recipe would be suitable for them. πŸ™‚
      And you are right, there are so many wonderful people that are here - just when I look through these comments, most are from people I have gotten to know through the blogging world and have become blogging friends. You are a 100% right - it is definitely worth to be genuine. I believe if I write about what I really care, the right people will find their way here (if they haven't already) - the ones who share the same values and ideas and are truly interested in what I have to say here. Even if probably not every single entry is to their 100% liking.
      I guess I should've called them crepes, but they are not as thin as crepes πŸ˜€ I'm often just too lazy to make like 4 pancakes, when I can just make two of the larger ones - they are more closely related to what we call "Palatschinken", which looks like a crepe, just is a bit thicker. πŸ™‚ And yes, cinnamon really tastes delicious with those banana pancakes!

  7. I’m not vegan and I’m one of your followers. πŸ™‚ I’m just really interested in paleo and gluten-free food because I’m trying to lose weight.

    Banana pancakes are my favorite breakfast as well! I always add cinnamon to the mixture as well. I LOVE cinnamon. Just a question though: how do you manage to get them so large? I cannot do that without breaking them, so I always bake four pancakes at a time in my pan.

    1. Tanya, thank you so much for commenting! <3 I LOVE to hear from people who read my blog and I'm so happy to have you here. I'm myself curious about the paleo diet, although I couldn't completely live without grains πŸ˜€
      Cinnamon is so tasty with those pancakes, I totally agree! Sometimes, mine break too, I'm not gonna lie πŸ˜‰ But I use a small pan, that actually has the diameter of those pancakes. I first heat the pan up well and then turn the heat down a bit, so the bottom side can "firm up" well, without burning. Then I use a spatula to carefully flip them over. They are much easier to flip though if you make them smaller - I'm just usually too lazy to do so πŸ˜€ (and often too hungry too!)

      1. Completely living without grains would be difficult for me as well. But it’s totally doable to exchange some of my weekly meals for grainless options, I think. I am also really hungry most of the time while making them, but four small pancakes at once in a big pan isn’t such a big difference from one bigger pancakes, I guess. πŸ˜‰ You know what else is delicious? Baking some blueberries in the pancakes! πŸ™‚

        1. Oh yes, I do think so too – I’ve been wanting to try and exchange some grains at night as well, also in an attempt to loose a bit of weight! And you are right, it doesn’t really matter when you can make the small ones at once – I just don’t have a pan where this works, so I have to wait until they are done pretty much one by one πŸ˜€ I haven’t put blueberries into my pancakes in such a long time – I think I know what I’m going to do tomorrow morning! Thanks for reminding me πŸ™‚
