About Dave

From the UK to Germany with many stops along the way. Food without meat is the best type of food. And I plan to share it!


  1. i never would have thought it was possible to just make pancakes out of bananas and eggs.. definitely something i will be trying in my kitchen!

    • I also was amazed, when I heard of it, haha.
      Btw. you just posted the very first comment on this blog!! What a great moment (more for me and Dave than for you I assume 😉 )

      • 4 stars
        Was super excited to try this recipe. I added a few of the pimped up tweaks suggested for my first go round: tbsp of vanilla flavored protein powder and peanut butter and tsp of cinnamon and vanilla extract. They smelled soooooo good as I mixed the ingredients together! I will definitely do this recipe.

      • So quick to make. I have used butter and also tried coconut oil. Prefer butter . Had no problem with sticking, but then l used a fairy new pan. l find the texture a little different . Love cinnamon and that gave just enough sweetness.

    • 5 stars
      Love these! Thanks for sharing!!
      Some tweaks…

      1 egg + 1 egg white
      Dash of cinnamon
      2/3 banana medium
      1 Tbs ground flaxseed
      1/4tsp almond extract

      • Cool! Glad you like them. Haha yes, there are many ways to take this pancake!

        • Tamara Fletcher

          3 stars
          I had such high Hope’s for these. I will try them again and add some of the tweaks I saw above but I don’t know if it was because I mashednthe egg and banana together instead of separately or maybe my banana was too small but it tasted more eggy to me than pancake like. I did add vanilla extract and also some dark chocolate chips to half the batter. I gave it 3 stars because Adding my lakanto maple syrup made it way more pancake tasty. I can see the potential so we will tweak away. Thanks for the recipe.

          • Hi Tamara! Thanks for the comment. Hmm yes, could be perhaps – bigger eggs and a small banana could be the reason. I’m glad you still enjoyed it at the end :D. I’m glad you’re going to keep trying – a bigger banana sounds like a good plan!

          • I was so looking forward to such a nice breakfast option.
            I threw three batches in the trash. After experimenting with three different sizes of pancakes, I could not get any to resemble pancakes. They are mush pile and impossible to flip, After three batches worth , I can say eat scrambled eggs with a banana on the side.
            SO DISAPPOINTING!!!!!

          • Oh dear, Patty! All I can say is, you probably did it wrong 🙁
            Low to medium heat, non stick pan, lid, properly greased pan?
            On my end they turn out great 99% of the time

    • They are amazing!! Tried them this morning and a definite hit!!

  2. 4 stars
    I loved the recipe!! I liked the outcome 😉 I modified it a little bit though, to make it “ligth” I used just one egg yolk. It was delicious, but it stick a little bit to the pan. Thanks

  3. I was just thinking about making this the other day! I saw it in one of my Asian cookbooks, where it was mentioned as a popular dessert, but it had no proportions. All it said was “mash a banana with egg and fry it” haha, so I’m really happy to see it here with an actual recipe 😀

  4. Happy to become one of several customer for this wonder inspiring site D. ecdbadgeekdk

    Did I say already, that I love it?

    Yummy! My new favourite recipe for pancakes!

  7. I love making this recipe. It’s delicious! I add two tbsp of flour to make it tastier.

  8. 5 stars
    wow. I haven’t had pancakes in years just because I feel so….dirty, bloated and blech… after the starch. I just had these (for dinner!) and I’m soooo happy that I can enjoy pancakes and feel WELL after!!

    • I agree!! My moms pancakes are delicious but always left me bloated and tired. These ones are not like that at all! I just made a batch again, this time I added peanut butter (naughty).

      • 5 stars
        How about adding some peanut butter powder? You still get the flavor and the protein, just not the extra fat.

        • Peanut butter powder? never heard of it, but I’m absolutely sure it works nicely! I often use various “powders” like grated almond, hazelnut or coconut.
          Can’t go wrong! 😀

  9. wow. Can I rate this recipe with negative stars? The pancakes did NOT come out as a perfect circle. Also check your facts this recipe is from Norway you RACIST!!!!!!!

    • That’s strange. Usually they always come out as perfect circles, just like cats always fall on their feet.
      The girl in the video is Norwegian, that should fulfil your requirements

    • Wow, Sue Dougnym, you are rude. Howie, this is a delicious recipe. Thank you for posting.

    • Try using parchment paper between the pancake and pan, I just read that last night on a blog. It was actually being used to keep a fried egg from sticking…I hate when that happens…but I am guessing it may help to keep the pancake from sticking as well. Who knew parchment paper had so many uses! Hopefully it will turn out better if you choose to try again!

      • Interesting idea, never thought of it! Do you have a video or something to demonstrate how to do it? I like to use a knob of butter and spread it with a tissue. Works great for me 🙂

    • 5 stars
      Suggestion: if your so anal that you want them pefectly round try a smaller frying pan. Myself and those I have made them for, found they are so delicious we don’t care what they look like, but really have never had an issue so it must be something you did. I suspect that this was just someone that was bored looking for a reaction. Good on you Howie for not lowering yourself to their level.

    • 5 stars
      How is Sue these days? Hoping life is working out better for her and the pancakes became more friend than foe.

    • This comment was so unnecessary and throwing around the word racist? You should be ashamed of yourself

    • Lmao. What is wrong with you? A little over the top. I guess you are just mad be cause you cant cook and go on recipe blogs to accuse people of being racist. Gtfoh.

    • Sue – Way to start off a new year by being a total a$$hole in a public forum for everyone to observe. Thanks for the perfect example of how one should NOT treat fellow human beings. You’re what’s wrong with this world. Bravo!

      Ps – this recipe is good, regardless of where it’s from.

    I tried the banana egg pancakes this morning for breakfast. Add some raisins, cinnamon and peanut butter – perfect!

  12. 5 stars
    Tried this recipe for breakfast and it was delicious! I added a tablespoon of PB2 powdered peanut butter and my four year old twins are weird about food textures, so I smoothed out the mixture with my immersion blender before pouring it in the skillet. It made flipping them a challenge for me because they were more like crepes, but still very tasty. Thanks! 🙂

    • Great to hear Tara! I never knew there’s powdered peanut butter!
      Funny that you say that with the blender. Once I also blent my batter. The texture wasn’t ideal for anymore though and they fell apart after trying to flip them. I guess mixing the batter by hand is the way to go 😉

  13. these are wonderful! I thought that they would be quite horrible, but they are to die for!

    • Thanks for you feedback Katie! I totally agree!!! Normally I don’t eat eggs and I thought these pancakes definitely weren’t for me. But wow, I was wrong 😀

  14. 5 stars
    Made them closer to silver dollar size pancakes for our kids. Can’t believe how close these are in texture to real pancakes. So good! Added cinnamon, coconut flakes and sliced almonds. Topped with whipped cream. So yummy! Can’t wait to make them again. Very easy recipe and my little ones loved helping to smash the bananas, crack the eggs, choose our add ins, and mix it all together.

    • Thanks a lot for your comment, Shane! That’s exactly how I prepare these pancakes every morning. I started adding a very small tablespoon of peanut butter as well. It gives those pancakes an even better texture. Glad you liked them!! 😀

      • I had these in mexico at a cancer center and they were delicious! I finally tried to make them and the batter was real Watery and they stuck to the pan. I read an earlier post to use a newer pan I’m not ready to give up any suggestions? I haven’t tried the parchment paper yet but I’ll give it a shot in the morning!

  15. I am so excited for my toddler to wake up so I can make this for her. I can’t cook at all but I think I could handle this. I’ll let you know how she likes it!

    • I’m sure these will turn out fine and your daughter will love them 😀

      • I just stumbled across this recipe. Mmmm! O la! la!!. Very delicious. It melts in your mouth.

        I made it the first day and have not stopped.

        The second day, I added peanut butter and raisins. First, I soaked the raisins in hot water to soften them, before adding to the banana, egg and peanut butter mix. I stacked the pancakes with sliced cheese between them. Oh, boy! Do I have a treat!

        Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

        Ps. You can top them with fresh fruits and drizzle honey over them.

        • Awesome to hear!! Funny enough, we just had these for lunch. Even after six years they’re still made here – love ’em! Your additions sound excellent, too . Thanks for writing!

  16. 5 stars
    These were fabulous. We put chocolate chips in ours. Also, when time to flip the cake, I use another pan to flip it into. My picky 5 year old gal loved them as did I!

    • Chocolate chips, yesss!!! Also genious idea to use two pans. What is do is, I quater the pancake before flipping it, then turn around quater by quater. Works also excellent 🙂

  17. These were so good! I didnt have any maple syrup so I added chocolate chips:) will deff make them again! This is a no guilt recipe 🙂

  18. 5 stars
    Thanks for sharing this! super and easy and we love it! Just made a short blog post about it! have a look at it 🙂

    Loved it! I am trying to eat healthier and this was super filling it was delicious.

  20. I am on a low iodine diet for cancer treatment and really want to make these. Can you use egg substitute?

    • Hi Elizabeth, thanks for the question. I have honestly never tried them with an egg substitute…a quick search showed some egg replacement ideas for pancakes on this site: . If you have another substitute in mind then I’d say just give it a go anyway…many of our recipes were created through trial and error 🙂 Happy cooking and a speedy recovery!

  21. 5 stars
    Love this recipe too. The first time I heard about it, I though “Ewww. No way!” But then I gave it a try because it’s easy and I almost always have the ingredients on hand and it’s healthy.

    At first taste, I thought it was a little strange. Then, for whatever reason, I became addicted to these! Now I make them all the time.

    They can burn quickly and sometimes are hard to flip… but hey, that just means you have to keep making more to practice and perfect your technique. Hehe

    By the way, is there a way to bake these instead? I feel guilty about all the oil I have to spray on the pan.

  22. I just made these, they taste like banana bread. All I added was Vanilla extract and some protein powder

    • Yes, they do!! I also went from cinnamon to vanilla extract for a while. Nice change! Protein powder is a good one too, if you are into working out.

  23. 4 stars
    I’m surprised nobody mentioned this, but adding 1 tbsp of melted butter for each egg in the batter definitely solved the problem of burning pancakes for me. Of course, this would technically make it “3-ingredient pancakes”, but these are perfect and won’t stick at all. Of course, you might want to substitute coconut oil for the butter if that’s your thing.

    • Hmm, sounds very interesting! Never thought about it. Though, you are basically suggesting to add 2 tbsp of butter per batter. That’s a lot in my opinion. I throw about half a tbsp of butter into the pan. That’s a little more moderate I think 😉

  24. 5 stars
    My new favourite breakfast. Love them with walnuts and raisins in the batter and served with natural yoghurt and fresh fruit. Thanks Dave!

    These were amazing I seriously had my doubts, they almost tasted like a real pancake haha, I added blended mangos with banana on mine for syrup alternative

  26. 3 stars
    I love this recipe and have been using it for years! I add a scoop of vegain vanilla protein powder on days I know my activity level is goingto be hhigher than normal to give me extra energy!

  27. 4 stars
    I had seen this a few weeks ago… Decided to try them today. Was pleasantly surprised they were easy to make only down side was I felt the egg over powered the flavor of the bananas. In one pancake I added mint chocolate ships and thought it was amazing. If I could try and get a better banana flavor next time I’ll let you know what I find.

    • Thanks for the feedback Michael, we’re very glad you gave them a try 🙂 yep there are loads of different variations to be had, my favourite is definitely peanut butter. For a more bananary flavour, I found older, softer bananas help a lot. Let us know how the next batch go!

  28. I want to make these tomorrow, but the only bananas I have are frozen. Will that affect the pancakes taste or texture?

    • Hi Kyra,
      sorry for the late reply! I was on a wedding over the weekend and actually made these banana egg pancakes in the morning for a bunch of people!
      Wow, good question! I don’t know. I guess it won’t have a big effect since you have to mush them anyway

  29. 5 stars
    I’ve been seeing this recipe for awhile now (on multiple sites) and I finally decided to try it. I can’t believe how good it is. One egg seemed to work best for me with a tiny bit of flour. So much flavor without anything added, but tastes even more incredible with added toppings

  30. I’m going to try for sure. I always have bananas & don’t always eat them before they go bad. This will be a great thing for me to try when my bananas are ripe! Excited!

  31. Stephanie Montes

    I think I will add a honey/raw blueberry sauce on top or almond butter….Thanks for the recipe…I will add it to my Healthy Grub FB page.

    • That sounds great Stephanie! I haven’t had these for a few weeks now…but you’ve just convinced me it’s time again 🙂

  32. 5 stars
    Sweet recipe. I make pancakes quite often, so to see a 5 minute mix and cook I was interested to see how it works. As others have said flipping can be tricky but I’m sure personal experimenting and adding ones own ingredients will change that. My 1st 1 went fine but the 2nd did not, it became mangled after the flip, as i do with omelettes when they fail i just scrambled it and BAM! Scrambled Bananegg! 5* =D

    • Thanks for the feedback Andy! I do exactly the same, even though I can say without being cocky that my banana egg pancakes flip perfectly 99.5% of the time now 😉

  33. Fab recipe! I’d seen this a few weeks back, but lack of bananas and eggs made it impossible to make (obvs, lol) then a diagnosis of gestational diabetes (I’m 32 weeks with twins) made me think of it again, especially for a birthday treat today, I added a teaspoon of peanut butter, and they were delicious! Very bizarre flavour, but very moreish too, might try adding more peanut butter and a splash of vanilla extract next time, but definitely going to make them again! I did find they burnt quite a bit, but I think my pan was a bit hot, and also I think some of the darkness was from the banana cooking as well 🙂 Xxx

    • Hi Rose! Thanks a lot for your comment!
      Yep, sometimes the pan can get a little to hot and they burn quicker than they can cook. Peanut butter and vanilla extract are deffo perfect add ons! I actually like the texture, but well, what can I say, I’m biased 😉

  34. I love the pancakes, my little grandson is on a very low sugar diet. For his birthday I made mini cupcakes by adding some organic pumpkin and a little bit of honey to the banana/eggs ingredients. He loves them!

    • Thanks for sharing, Terry!
      Love the idea of adding organic pumkin!! I’ll add it to the list of “cool add ons” 🙂
      Glad to hear your grandson likes these pancakes!!

  35. A fantastic post workout breakfast! I had mine with 2 tbsp almond butter. Gorgeous!

  36. I added finely ground flaxseed and apple pie spice (nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice ) DELICIOUS! Thank you, thank you! I hate eggs and this was so good!

  37. 4 stars
    This recipe looks really nice but you didn’t specify fully on the on the pan heat, is it low, medium or high?

  38. Hi, I am looking for a healthy and quick pancake recipe because I love my pancakes and am craving them a lot right now! This looks great and I defintely want to try it. Say, will this make two pancakes or will I have too add two banaas and 4 eggs for 2 pancakes?

    • You could make it two relatively small pancakes with 1 banana and 2 eggs. But I count it as one pancake. For two people, I’d make it 4 eggs and 2 bananas! 🙂

  39. Hallo,

    Just made these pancakes the second time. I still have trouble with flipping them, but I guess I will have to invest in a good pan 😉 I added a bit of cinnamon and vanilla extract in the mix and topped the first with sautéed apples, cinnamon and a few raisins, added a pancake and topped the second layer with stewed bananas. Mmmmmm, so good!

    • Hi Alex! Haa, yes they can be a little tricky to flip. I recommend using a lid so that the pancake also “hardens” from the top. It makes a biig difference!
      Glad you like the pancakes! Just had my one a couple of minutes ago 😀

  40. Mine turned out a bit wet. Still tasted good, but it was a bit of an odd texture. Any suggestions?

    • Hi Anne!
      Hmm, what was the texture like?
      If the pancakes were a little too sweet I assume your bananas were a bit too ripe. If that wasn’t the case, maybe you want to add 2-3 tablespoons of grated coconut? It gives the pancake a more “natural” texture. But that would make them three ingredient pancakes. I hope that’s still fine 😉

    Hi Howie, Red here, from sunny California.
    This is the first meal I enjoyed on my quest back to a healthy body 😀
    I used pecan meal, mexican vanilla, and cinnamon- then topped it with hunny 🙂 yummmmeh! I can’t wait to share this with my family! Muchas Gracias

    • Woooww, that really does sound amazing, Red!! I make them also always when I’m home at my parents house.
      All the best with your quest! Espero que lo consigues, un saludo!! 🙂

    I blended my bananas and eggs together before pouring into the pan. The batter burnt very quickly and then they fell apart when I tried to flip them. So I ended up with a horrible burnt mess. I didn’t like the taste or texture; it tasted really eggy and not in a good way. More like a banana omelette than banana pancake which wasn’t what I was expecting. It was basically inedible and I had to throw it away; what a waste.

    • Wooo!!
      Really??? I just made a new batch this morning and they taste as awesome as always. Of course you need ripe bananas and you need to use middle heat. Ideally a lid on top as well, so the heat circulates better. I wish you’d give them a try again (maybe check out our video?).

      Of course burnt pancakes are not edible, sorry to hear!!

    • 2 stars
      I agree. I experimented with different sizes and the smaller ones looked like pancakes but they really just tasted like thin eggy crepes. Not horrible, but so thin and not satisfying. I might try again with some coconut flour or something to give them a little body.

      • Coconut Flour is a great idea, I use it sometimes as well. Of course, you’ll taste a bit of egg, since it’s only two ingredients 😉
        But it’s a minimum in my opinion. Actually, I don’t eat anything that tastes like eggs, haha. I really don’t like eggs by themselves.

  43. Umm… This is a great simple recipe but it’s not vegetarian because of the egg.. Unborn chickens anyone?

  44. I’m getting ready to try these for the first time. I usually put my very ripe bananasthat don’t get eaten in time in the freezer until I’m ready to make banana bread or muffins. Do you think a thawed banana would work or will it make the batter too thin? If you recommend only “fresh” bananas please describe the ideal ripeness (some brown spots, no spots, etc). Thank you

    • Hi Tegan! Yep, I think thawed bananas would work as well, since you still have two eggs that support. I’d say almost every type of banana works, except the ones that are still green. The riper the better though 🙂

  45. 5 stars
    well I make them and I also put one tsp of powdered vanilla to eliminate the egg smell which I can’t stand. Then I drizzle honey over them, and I enjoy the #Best.Breakfast.Ever.
    Sometimes I might add some oat bran to make it thicker.. I’ll try making them on my toaster. See how they come out. Cheers from Greece!

    • Hey Alexandra!
      Glad you liked the pancakes!! Haaa, yes I know what you mean with the smell of egg. Smart move to ad some vanilla!! You want to make the pancakes on your toaster??? How?

    Hi Howie,
    Been looking for recipes that were a little more protein based. Made this for my girlfriend and I this morning after finding it last night. Added some peanut butter and we loved them. The first thing my girlfriend said after…these are amazing…was, they remind me of french toast! I had to agree. Gonna make your cream cheese pancakes next (had bananas, but no cream cheese this morning lol) and can’t wait! Thanks for posting this recipe!

    • You’re welcome Debbie!! Thanks for this awesome feedback, glad you guys liked them!
      Yess, I eat these pancakes all the time. I’m such a huge fanboy of them I can’t believe it 😀

    Its like making omelettes either it comes out in one piece or scrambled. I love these with natural yoghurt snd rasberries

  49. 4 stars
    These are absolutely delish. I’m on a calorie controlled diet and pleased I’ve found something I can have for breakfast that doesn’t use up my precious daily allowance. They were incredibly easy to make and really tasty. I added a couple of tablespoons of flour and some mixed spice.

  50. Mine came out too thin. Would it be better to use one egg to reduce the liquid?

    • Not sure to be honest, Gin. I mean eggs turn pretty “hard” when you fry them. I’d rather add a bit more banana or give it body with hazelnut powder, peanut butter or grated coconut. Hope you liked them at least!

    Very nice recipe. Thank you for sharing!

    I loved these! I heard about them awhile back and finally got around to trying them. They came out wonderfully with some cinnamon and peanut butter (great tip). I run a food blog on Instagram called @fiftyshadesoffoods and I will definitely be posting a picture up in a few weeks!

    • Haa, some cheeky peanut butter can really make them even more addictive 😉
      Will check out your IG right now, thanks for giving these pancakes a shot, Holly!

    I just now made these – put the eggs and banana in the blender and possibly blended too long as they were a bit watery and I added cinnamon and walnuts – they didn’t cook up too well – burned before they were set enough to turn over. And the consistency was a little grainy – just not what I thought they’d be – but the taste was ok and since I knew there was no flour or sugar – that made them taste even better and I didn’t leave anything on the plate.

  54. I never would have dreamed these would have turned out this yummy! Hand blended the eggs then added the mashed banana with a drop of vanilla. I’ve found that heating a pan over medium heat then adding coconut oil has prevented foods from sticking. Worked with this recipe, too. Thanks for a great recipe and taking the time to respond to the comments! Good reading!

    • Coconut oil and medium heat for teh win! That’s how I made my banana egg pancake this morning as well. It always works 😀
      Thanks for giving these a shot, Joanne!

  55. I am about to try this recipe out but I do have a question. Have you ever tried making the batter the night before and then cook the batter the next morning? If you have, how did it turn out?

    Nice recipe and I will have to give this a shot!

    • Hi David! To be honest I always use the batch right away, because it’s so quick. But I don’t see a problem at all leaving it in the fridge for a night.
      I’m sure you’ll like it, I’m a huge fan 😀

      • Howie and David: I made this recipe before and kept the leftovers in the fridge, well stored. The next day I warm the cakes in the microwave and put some honey or maple syrup on top and they work fine!

  56. 5 stars
    I think almond butter will probably work wonderfully with this recipe. I tried one of these banana/egg pancakes and loved it. Thanks for sharing.

    • Yes, almond butter works. You can either mix it into the batter or just use it as a spread. I tried it various times and can only give a thumbs up, haha 😀

  57. 3 stars
    Hmmm, just tried these today. They were not bad, (my kid loved them) but my husband and i prefer actuall pancakes to these. The good- easy and cheap to make, looks like pancakes but smells like banana bread (added vanilla cinnamon and nutmeg) The bad- texture. Very egg-y. Ugh. I dont know what i was expecting (maybe pancakes, ha!) But i didnt like the taste (eggs) and the texture was weird. Maybe next time ill up the ratio of bananas to eggs and see how that works.

    • Hi Jasmin! Glad your little one liked them! Same here, my nephew is a huge fan 😀
      Funny that you have the impression it tastes a lot like egg. Actually, I don’t like eggs at all, but when I mix a mashed banana into them, I don’t notice the eggy taste at all. Not sure, if these pancakes will ever suit your taste, but maybe it’ll work if you mash the banana more smoothly, try a riper banana or use some tasty add-ons like coconut flour or peanut butter.

    Thanks for this wonderful recipe! Rather than mash the bananas and eggs manually, I blended the eggs, banana and a pinch of cinnamon in a small blender and the pancakes came out perfectly round and cooked evenly on a non-stick skillet. I did spray the skillet with a little canola oil just in case they might stick to the pan. Just like any pancake if you wait for the 1st side to set and brown, gently flipping the pancake isn’t a problem. I used 4 tbs. for each pancake and got a 4-stack pancake breakfast out of just one recipe – perfect for one or if you have a generous nature you could share. Drizzled the stack with a bit of agave nectar and fresh strawberries. It was a great way to start my day! Thanks for a recipe with just the right proportion & that turned out perfect on the first try!

    First try and an absolute MUST TRY! Really easy to make and tasted delicious. I used coconut oil which worked really well and topped with plain yoghurt and homemade mixed berry compote. Will definitely try again and recommend to others! Thanks for sharing the recipe 🙂

    Wow – as soon as I read the email I ran right to the kitchen and made these. YUM!!!

  62. Absolutely loved the pancakes, was getting bored with my breakfast & I couldn’t believe how good I felt after eating these, please send me more recipes!

  63. I tried these and the first time I burned them. I sprayed with Pam. They are very delicate and if you make them really small they are easy to flip and are absolutely delish! Only 2 Smart Points.

    • Hi Diana, and thanks for the feedback! I definitely agree you that flipping smaller pancakes is much easier. Glad you enjoyed the pancakes, and thanks for sharing your tips!

    I’ve made these a bunch of times and have started playing around iwth it (adding protein powder, nuts, etc.). I wanted to reduce the amount of oil and the time spent in front of the stove, so I tried baking it a few times, but it didn’t work out (too dense, gross plastic film formed on top, stuck onto the casserole dish, tasted bad, etc.).

    Has anyone tried this in a waffle iron?

    • Hi, I’ve just had a check through the comments and I can’t see that anybody has made them with a waffle…yet! Loads of our other pancakes have been made with waffle irons with great results, in fact many people are swearing the irons are the way to go. So I would say – there’s only one way to find out 😉 would love to hear how you get on!

  65. I didn’t have time to read all the comments, so someone may have asked this already, but is it possible to make these ahead of time, refrigerate, then pop in the microwave in the morning. I’m *really* not a morning person.

    • Hi Rachael! I’ve just had a read through all the comments (you’re right, there are hundreds!) and finally found what I was looking for. It seems you can indeed – here’s what another user wrote: “Howie and David: I made this recipe before and kept the leftovers in the fridge, well stored. The next day I warm the cakes in the microwave and put some honey or maple syrup on top and they work fine!“. So I’d say certainly give it a go. Hope that helps!

        Thanks for digging through the comments for me! I made them this morning with some flax seed and peanut butter. It tasted better than I expected. I thought banana and egg mashed together might not be too great, but fortunately I was wrong. I’m following the free high protein 1 week meal planner. Does the ebook you sell come with weeks charted out like that with the weakly meal plan and the grocery list?

        • Glad the banana egg pancakes turned out better than expected 😀
          The peanut butter and flax seed combo is a popular one at my home as well. Also thanks for giving our high protein meal plan a shot? Is it going ok so far?
          For our eBook we have one meal plan that includes the grocery list. And then there are another 4 that don’t include the grocery list.

  66. I feel so sorry for all you reviewers that you think these taste like pancakes. Lol. (Don’t be all mad at me – just having a bit of fun.) Seriously though these taste like eggs with bananas. Made these last weekend up north for my kids. Good thing there was cereal as a back up. I did eat some. All was not lost though. Our little doggy happily snarfed up the rest. I agree these are healthy. Maybe they just need a different name… like, banana eggs.

    • Nah, these aren’t just bananas and eggs. Personally, I don’t like the taste of eggs at all. No fried eggs, no hard boiled eggs, nothing in that direction. BUT: 2 eggs mixed with 1 banana change everything! I almost make them daily and love these because they lost the egg taste 🙂

  67. Wow, I just made those. So delish, will be making them from on only. i think even my kids may like them. I just recently start paying more att to what I eat. LOve this one. Will check what other great ideas you have for me and my picky eaters.

    • That’s very cool Ania, glad it was so helpful. Yeah finding stuff for the kids is never easy! I’m discovering that more and more every day. But there’s always a way 😀

  68. Love this blog — the garbanzo-veggie pancakes have become my go-to quick dinner. But I’ve tried these pancakes so many times and 1. Even at a low temp, they tend to burn black on the outside before cooking in the middle and 2. if they aren’t burned black on the outside they look and taste like a banana omelet, which is unspeakably awful. There must be some trick I’m missing, because it’s obviously working for others.

    If anyone else has had the banana omelet experience and been discouraged — don’t give up on the blog! There are some great ideas and recipes. Be sure to check out the garbanzo flour pancake recipe! It’s amazing.

    • Hi Wendy, first of thanks so much for the positive feedback! I’m glad to hear the chickpea pancakes work for you 😀
      Dave makes them quite often too. I’m on the other hand a big banana egg pancake fan. I prep them almost daily – and I’m quite surprised you’re having trouble making them.
      Do you use a gas oven? If not, you really need to be careful with the heat. With electric kitchen stoves the heat is much more difficult to regulate – really set it to low, use a lid and take some time. Other than that I find the pancake tend to turn darker more quickly using butter. Coconut oil makes a “cleaner” pancake. I promise you, they usually turn out awesome! My latest version: 1 banana, 2 eggs, 2 tbsp coconut flakes, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 0.5 tsp cardamom, peanut butter and blueberries = tasty AF! (Banana Egg Pancakes)

      • Thanks Hauke!

        Maybe the electric heat and no lid are the issues. I only have electric and don’t have a frying pan with a lid. Funny story: I only own 2 pans and hate cooking with a passion. My sister loves to cook. So I sent her a link to the banana egg pancakes. She was also surprised that they didn’t work for me, as they’d been easy and delicious when she made them. She said she’d tweaked he recipe a little to suit her. How? Well… she’d added some flour and a little baking powder, and some cinnamon and….

        I don’t have a frying pan with a lid, but I’ll try these again with some foil covering it as it cooks and see if I can male it work. Thanks for the assist!

  69. I have tried this ,and back here again to say thanks for your delicious recipe

  70. Loved the pancakes 🙂

    If you want them to be a bit more firm then soft you can add oats.
    I use a small mixer thing to mix everything to batter but love the peanut butter 😀
    Gonna dd that always no on.

    hard to flip and needs a pinch of salt. i added a tiny bit of honey and coconut flour.

    • Honey and coconut flour sounds good! If flipping is an issue, sometimes a different pan or a little more oil helps a lot 🙂

    This is my new favorite breakfast. I won’t admit how many days in a row I’ve made these, but I will tell you my favorite added ingredients! I always add the flax seeds and the vanilla. For the topping, I either use lemon juice and powdered sugar, or almond butter.

    • Haha I’m with you on that one Ashley! We’ve all had phases with these where no other breakfast gets a look in for weeks :D. Thanks for the feedback and cool ingredient ideas!

    Thanks for sharing this recipe.
    I’ve been trying many gluten free pancake versions at home, however none pass the kid test. These pass!
    Added one tbsp of peanut butter & one tbsp almond meal & a few dark chocolate chips & a pinch of baking soda.
    Everything except the chocolate chips blended in a nutra bullet. I predict that blending out the bananas helps reduce the burning.
    I used the mini frying pans with a little butter, medium-low heat and covered as Haulk Fox/Dave? recommended in one of the comments. They browned, but did not burn. Served with mangos & raspberries

  74. 5 stars
    Ive made these twice before, both times disasters. Wouldn’t flip and just was a mess. Not even very tasty. Very eggy. BUT im happy to report ive just made the most perfect looking golden stack of delicious pancakes using your basic recipe (no additions). So what was i doing wrong? I was using very ripe bananas. The type you use in cooking. Trick is to use just yellow bananas. Oops! Should have watched the video.

  75. I am a vegan. Do you have any suggestions to replace the egg protein in this recipe?

  76. These are great! Exactly what I needed as I try to eliminate some things from my diet. I wanted to share how I cooked them for my family of 4 in a large batch because I found it VERY tricky to keep the banana from burning on the pan after the first few pancakes.
    I used 4 bananas and eight eggs.
    I added 4 T of pure coconut milk(the thick kind from the can) and 2 t of vanilla for flavor.
    I was cooking in an awful metal pan…so to keep the banana from scorching and sticking to the pan I had to turn the heat to just below medium. I scooped the batter with a 1/3 measuring cup and kept the pan covered so they would set faster. I started with about a tablespoon of ghee in the pan then continually added 1/4 of a teaspoon at every flip to keep cooling the oil down.
    It made about 20 small pancakes and my kids gobbled them up as fast as traditional pancakes.

    • Hi Clarice! Really cool to hear the pancakes turned out well and your family liked them 🙂
      Very cool idea about the coconut milk. In fact I have some in my fridge now that needs to go asap. Will go in my today’s batch of pancakes. I agree about the “burning issue”. In my experience they are more difficult to bake on an electric or ceramic hob, because it’s just so easy to regulate the heat with a gas hob.

    I recently had Lap Band surgery and there are many things I have changed about my eating habits. Unfortunately I can no longer eat anything made from “dough” and although pancakes are a batter the carbs and calories are definitely not on my list. This is such a great alternative for me to use and not feel like I have lost a food that I enjoy. Thank you for this… I did try it with protein powder and with powdered peanut butter, as I use both all the time!!! Any more great recipes, or great cook book recommendations please feel free to send my way!!!!!

    • So great to hear that you enjoyed these pancakes, Jaqie! 🙂
      Never seen powdered peanut butter around but it sounds awesome!

      • Hauke, look for Jif Peanut Powder. All the others I’ve seen are full of sugar, but the Jif is just peanuts. You can turn it into a sort of peanut butter (ish) thing by mixing with hot water, but I use it primarily as the gentleman above mentioned, to add protein and peanut butter flavor without adding fat.

        • That sounds really cool. The pure peanut butter I get here has got worse recently, it’s really dry. I might try a little hot water on it though. Thanks for the tip!

      • You can get powdered peanut butter at Walmart

    I just started making these and find covering the pan while they’re cooking makes a cleaner pancake. Even with “regular” pancakes 🙂 I cook them in a little butter and added blueberries and a small amount of cocoa powder. Very crepe like which I really love, reminds me of my favorite creeper from IHOP without the guilt, bloating and energy drain. Thank you so much!

    Great recipe! I was unsure how this would taste, but loved the two ingredient list. Turns out, these pancakes taste amazing! For my topping, I got real ‘fancy’ by microwaving blueberries and a dash of honey. This sauce + the pancakes = dessert without any of the extra sugar. Thanks for the recipe!

    I can’t get enough of these pancakes. I’ve experimented with various ingredients and the ones I usually go with are protein powder, flaxseed, dried cranberries, oatmeal, cinnamon, and coconut flour/rice flour.

    • Awesome, James! So cool to hear. Yeahh the combo potentials are almost limitless :). Protein powder is a great reminder, I haven’t done that for a while. Thanks!

    I absolutely love this recipe! I made this for my kids and myself. I like that I was able to sneak in a banana without them knowing. For variation, I was wondering how much flour or oats I could add to make it more like a regular crispy pancake. This way it’s a meal in one. I’ll have the grain, egg, and banana. Thank you and keep up the good healthy breakfast work!

    These were absolutely the best! Following a Weight Watcher diet is not the easiest to do. With this recipe, my mornings just got a whole lot better! I did add 1 tablespoon of pancake mix to batter and this really helped with a more pancake like structure without a ton of bloaty carbs! I also added vanilla and cinnamon and topped with fruit and 1/2 tablespoon of toasted coconut!
    Thank you for posting, will definitely be making again!

    • 5 stars
      I really thought this would turn out to be some weird banana omelette-y thing which didn’t seem overly appealing to me. It was delicious, I was shocked! A bit of maple syrup and it really was like a pancake. First meal of the week’s plan and I am already impressed. Thanks.

    Hi! This looks delicious to me but I’m having a hard time understanding the nutrition facts you posted, does this recipe really have 100%+ of my daily value of cholesterol? Seems dangerous considering this would likely be first meal of the day. Not trying to be a downer by any means so can anyone explain the high percentage? Thanks!

  85. I just can’t get it right…it falls apart…can you guess what am I doing wrong??

    • Hi Suki! There’s normally a couple of things that can cause that. Please check: the oil/butter is spread out evenly over the pan, and that the pan is a good non-stick pan. Cooking with a lid also helps, as does a low heat and a little patience :). I hope that solves it for you!

  86. 5 stars
    Planning on making a huge batch of these and maybe adding cacao powder to some to give them a chocolate hit.

    Do you know if they would freeze well ? It may stop me eating them all in a day 😉 Although that’s not a given!

    • Hi Jo! Glad you like the recipe. I think these pancakes are awesome too 🙂
      Chocolate would go very well I’m sure. I’m also sure you can freeze them, even though I haven’t tried it myself. But I know of people who do that.

    I don’t even remember how I found this page but I’m glad I did! Tried this out this morning with a few changes – added an extra 1/2 banana, tiny bit of vanilla extract, and cashew butter. I left some lumps bc I love that texture. My 1st one was more on the eggy side but I’m pretty sure it’s because I didn’t have my pan hot enough (oops!). 2nd came out so perfect. Mind thought I was eating banana pancakes but at least I didn’t have the flour carbs.

    Thanks for a great idea!

    Eggs…my favourite food! I gave it a good shot, used a little bit of unsalted butter to fry the pancakes and the outcome was mouth-watering! Just bananas and eggs! It serves great when cravings hit red! #unreal

    I love these but whenever I flip them they get ruined. So now I just dump the whole mixture into a pan and cook them like scrambled egg

    • yeees, that definitely works as well and is similarly delicious 🙂
      Yesterday I successfully flipped my biggest banana egg pancake ever. 3 bananas and 4 eggs in one batter and one pan – BAM!

  92. Has anyone tried this with flaxseed meal as an egg replacement for a vegan pancake?

    • I’ve added flaxseed to the batter, and it’s great, but I haven’t tried a flax egg in this particular recipe, though I do love them. I’m very happy to give it a try! 1 tbsp flax seeds mixed with 3 tbsp hot water and stirred until sticky should do it for each egg replacement. Will try 🙂

    Using just eggwhites makes them fluffier. 🙂

    Um, just tried this: 2 bananas, 4 eggs. Not for me. Super weird, like a banana omelette, it even looks like an omelette. I have heard that you can do this with egg whites only, maybe that would make more sense but this recipe I’m afraid I did not enjoy.

    • Sounds like the pancake turned out like it should, but you just didn’t like the taste. Well, that’s ok, can’t be for everyone.

    I’ve been eating these every night for dinner. My friend suggested them when I was so tired of my normal go-to egg bake that I was gagging. I agree that they have a banana bread taste to me. Mine usually end up more scrambled than pancake but idc! I came here looking for add in suggestions, will be trying the PB2. Thank you!

    Just found this website! My son recently became vegetarian, and really should be vegan with his dairy allergies. I just made my grocery list off of your recipes. Simple, cheap, easy recipes. Thank you so much!!

  97. do these do well if you freeze them and eat them later? (sorry if its already been asked)

    • Hi Kenya, yes a few people have tried freezing them with success! I haven’t done it myself, but all reports point to a still-tasty pancake when reheated 🙂

  98. I made them today and I enjoyed them very much. I could not get under them to turn them over so I just made them like scrambled eggs.
    They still tasted great.

  99. Could I bake these in a cake pan?
    Looking to make for my daughters half birthday as a “cake” with yogurt “frosting”
    (Its really just for her to smash it and barley eat!)
    Would it hold up and kind of look like a cake?

    • Hi Lacey! I’m sure they would cook in a cake pan, but I’m not sure if they would really work as a cake. They’re quite thin, so you’d need quite a few to get a decent thickness. But I guess a trial run would give the answer!

  105. I may get the nerve to try this with flax eggs to make the pancakes vegan. If I do, I will comment again to let everyone know how it worked out.

  106. They kept breaking due to being too soft.. what mistake did I make

  107. Hello. What’s going on with the veggie challenge. All code???

  108. Love these! Been eating for breakfast for weeks now. 1 banana 1 egg 1 egg white and a couple tbs of unsweetened coconut. Sometimes top with cinnamon, almond butter or real maple syrup. So good and filling! Thanks for the recipe.

    Not delicious at all! Perhaps my bananas were too ripe?

    • Hi Gwen,

      to be honest I do like the pancake, especially with ripe bananas. Not sure if something went wrong. But maybe the taste just isn’t for you.

  110. Love these!! I have made a variation of them for years for my kids.
    Add a handful of spinach, vanilla extract, cinnamon and 1/4c quick oats. Throw it all in the blender. SO Delicious!!!

  111. 5 stars
    Love these!! I always add a bit of oat flour so it’s easier for them to stay together 🙂

  112. I’m going to try this in the AM, I think using them as bread and making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich sounds amazing. Cant wait.

  113. Recipe is fine & all. “Pimp these recipes up”? Probably a better way to say you’re just enhancing or even “spicing them up” but yeah ya don’t need to throw “pimp” in there. Honestly good recipe. Remove the unnecessary.

  114. I did not think these would be yummy, to be honest. It took a couple of bites for my brain to understand what I was tasting but the pancakes were actually pretty good! The banana provides enough sweetness to overcome the egg flavour. I added cinnamon and vanilla, as per suggestions in the comments. Thanks!! I’ll be making these again!

    After I lowered my temperature to low /med and increased time, all was good. My eggs were not particularly fresh ( the kind that spread thin when frying.) My pan’s not non stick has seen better days. Thinking if I use fresher eggs that would make difference. Compensation: – put circle of egg/banana mix in heated buttered pan , cook for a minute or so, then place lid on the pan, steamed until top was almost cooked, flipped to finish cooking. Made flipping easier and shortened cook time, but still light brown both sides.

  116. 5 stars
    I just made these this morning, added vanilla protein powder, peanut butter and cinnamon and oh boy were they delicious. I really recommend kicking the heat up to medium-medium-high as they got a better texture and we’re faster than the first one I cooked at medium-low.
    Will definitely be adding these to my breakfast rotation. Thanks!

    • Awesome to hear, Patrick! Really glad you enjoyed them. These were one of the first recipes we ever released, and they’re still on our breakfast rotation too 😀

  117. Hi!

    Love this recipe! Can these be frozen?
