3-Ingredient Banana Pancakes

  • 2 medium-to-large ripe bananas
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour or 2/3 cup oat flour


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, mash the banana with a large fork until it’s shiny and mostly smooth. Add the eggs and whisk until the eggs are evenly incorporated into the banana.
  2. Heat a large skillet (stainless steel, cast iron or non-stick) over medium-low heat (if using an electric griddle, heat it to 350 degrees Fahrenheit). You’re ready to start cooking pancakes once a drop of water sizzles on contact with the hot surface. If necessary, lightly oil the cooking surface with a pat of butter or oil, carefully wiping up excess with a paper towel (nonstick surfaces likely won’t require any oil).
  3. Scoop ¼ cup batter onto the hot skillet, leaving a couple of inches around each pancake for expansion. Cook until small bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Flip the pancakes, then cook until lightly golden on both sides, 1 to 2 minutes more. Repeat the process with the remaining batter, adding more butter and dialing down the heat if the pancakes are turning dark on the outside before they are cooked through on the inside.
  5. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200 degree Fahrenheit oven. Leftover pancakes can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or frozen for up to 3 months. To reheat, stack leftover pancakes and wrap them in a paper towel before gently reheating in the microwave.
