THE 2 INGREDIENTS PANCAKE (GLUTEN-FREE)

In honor of National Pancakes Day coming up on this Saturday (September 26th), I thought I'd make this 2 ingredients pancake! I had heard about this 2 ingredients pancake for a while now and I first heard about these from my roommate in college who wanted to try them. However, after reading about reviews, a lot of people who had tried this recipe expressed that the pancakes would fall apart in the pan and that it was just a mess. So I decided to add in a little secret ingredient to make these extra sweet, delicious & a success! Let's get started!

YOU'LL NEED:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tsp - 1 tbsp of honey (OPTIONAL)

HOW TO:

Get a pretty well-ripen banana, peel, and put it in a bowl. 

Mash the bananas until it is smooth and has few chunks. The more you mash it so its smooth, the easier it will be later on when you add the egg (it's harder to get rid of chunks when liquid is added in ). 

Once it is well mashed, crack in your 1 egg. Some recipes call for 2 eggs to 1 banana, but I found that this ratio works the best! Mix it together well. 

SECRET INGREDIENT: honey! Honey will help the mixture stick somewhat together so that when you're flipping it in the pan, it won't all fall apart. It also adds a nice touch of sweetness. 

Oil your pan with oil (I used olive oil) and wait until the pan is heated. Spoon in your mixture into round bite-sized shapes. Wait until the side in the pan is golden brown and well done. 

They key is to flip it when one side is golden brown and you see the side facing up is also starting to cook. TIP: When flipping the pancake try to just lightly place your spatula underneath the pancake and gently flip it over keeping it all close to the pan. 

Voila! You are finished! Top with some berries (its a perfect pairing with blueberries if you like blueberries) and drizzle on a little bit of honey or maple syrup!

The pancake doesn't really taste much like an actual pancake but it tastes like a sweet, banana french toast! I really enjoyed this and it was so filling that I wasn't too hungry for lunch later that day. These are healthy, fruity, and absolutely yummy for anyone to give it a try. Hope you enjoyed!
