We love pancakes at our house. So it was no surprise to me that this recipe was such a hit. I originally saw it on Pinterest, and now so many versions have popped up that I don’t know the original source. But these (originally 2 ingredient) pancakes are amazing!
When I originally made them, they were pretty thin, so they actually reminded me more of crepes. But boy are these SUPER simple Banana Crepes SO amazing. They make either a great breakfast or a fun little dessert, especially when you are on a diet. For example, I can eat this whole recipe by myself for only 3-4 weight watchers plus points. I wouldn’t, but I could.
My kids ate these up so fast that last time I think we tripled the recipe! Just so you know!
I have made them two ways the just eggs version and the ground flax seed variation so I will include both options:
Banana Crepes Recipe (each recipe makes 4-5 small crepes)
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 egg (or 2 eggs, omit the flax & water mixture)
1 Tbsp Ground Flax Seed + 2 Tbsp Water
sprinkle of cinnamon to taste
sprinkle of baking powder (maybe 1/8 of a teaspoon)
1/4 tsp. Vanilla extract
Olive oil spray for pan
Directions: Mix all ingredients together. Cook until done on a griddle sprayed lightly with olive oil. I like to substitute the flax mixture for one egg, like it is listed above If you don’t like the flax, just use an additional egg. You could try any spices that you desire. Pumpkin pie spice would be fun in the fall, peanut butter to make them a little more filling…
Top with plain Greek yogurt mixed with a little bit of honey to taste. Top that with fresh raspberries, or fruit of your choice! Enjoy!
