When we first started feeding H, we decided to roughly follow Baby Led Weaning philosophies. It was important to me that he was eating healthy, flavourful whole foods.
A couple of years ago, my good friend introduced me to two ingredient pancakes and we haven’t looked back.
This little recipe became one of our regular meals for baby H. It is still one of his favourites! You can make these for a Sunday Brunch, a quick supper or make ahead and enjoy them reheated all week!
As a new mum, these were a go to because they only have two, yes TWO ingredients! While I am passionate about a good pancake, who can argue with the ease of mashing a banana and egg together and ending up with a pancake? Not me.
Easy Two Ingredient Pancakes
- 1 medium banana
- 2 eggs
- 1/8 tsp baking powder optional, makes fluffier pancakes
- Heat a pan or griddle over medium heat. I use a cast iron pan. Add a small amount of coconut oil to prevent the pancakes from sticking.
- In a small bowl, add peeled banana. Using a fork, mash until you have achieved a relatively uniform consistency with few lumps.
- Crack both eggs and add to mashed banana. Whisk until combined.
- Drop a small amount of banana-egg mixture onto the warm skillet. Cook pancakes until the underside is golden brown and the top begins to set, about one minute. Flip and continue to cook second side until it's golden brown.
