Yum. I saw this recipe on Pinterest, of course, and I love it's ease for the cubs. I can whip these up just as fast a a bowl of oatmeal, but I get more smiles. It's as simple as this:
Grab a banana and an egg, this will make one large pancake. (the recipe below makes two) A soft banana is best, easier to mash.
Begin mashing the two together in a small bowl. You can use a fork, but I like my biscuit mixer/ potato masher thingy.
While you mash, heat a small skillet over medium heat and add a little pat of butter. Note: Please, people, use butter not oil or (heaven forbid) PAM. If you want that crisp, browning action, you need to use butter. It's really not as bad for you as the health department would like you to believe - fat is not the enemy, it's brain fuel, especially for children... but don't get me started. : ) Let that skillet get good and hot, and the BUTTER spread all 'round.
Mash, mash, mix, mix, until the there aren't large banana lumps anymore.
Pour all the mix into the hot skillet, and let it cook on one side until browned, then flip. Mmm, look at that golden sweetness!
Serve immediately to happy toddlers! You can top your pancake how you'd like, Nutella, peanut butter, etc, we chose vanilla Greek yogurt as a "dip" instead of syrup - the cakes are quite sweet already being made of natural sugar! So how do they taste? A lot like banana bread, yum, and they're filling. They have the consistency of an omelet, easily cut and chewed. Also, they would freeze well, if needed, since the two ingredients freeze well.
Oh, don't let this snarky little handsome face fool ya... see that yogurt everywhere? Yeah, he thought his pancake was "Umm! Oood!"
Two Ingredient Banana Pancakes
Butter for pan
Heat butter in skillet over medium heat. Mash bananas and eggs together with a whisk or fork in a bowl until smooth. Pour half of mixture into skillet and cook, flipping half way through after the first side is browned. Follow with the rest of the mix, making the second pancake. Serve immediately with topping of your choice. Enjoy!
