Three ingredient pancakes: can you guess what’s in them? You certainly won’t find any kind of flour or milk, but that sounds kinda lame, though doesn’t it? Do you believe that these are gluten and lactose free and don’t require any added sugar, and that there isn’t much difference between these and the traditional version? Believe it.I have a dangerous love for anything that comes in a batter form, particularly waffles and pancakes. Something about sifting flour, cracking a couple eggs, and then whisking in milk brings on a feeling of comfort, and that’s not even the best part. The real comfort is spooning the batter onto a hot griddle and hearing that first glorious sizzle – and then of course devouring it. The only downside is that I eat them all, and end up with a food baby belly.
I assure you that this adaptation will knock your socks off, won’t put a huge dent in your wallet and will leave you feeling satisfied without feeling heavy.
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
- Oil of your preference, or butter
In a bowl, mash the bananas. It’s not the end of the world if there’s a few lumps. I’m down with lumps.
Add the two eggs, baking powder and mix together. The baking powder gives your pancakes that extra lift. At this point, feel free to add any kind of spice or other ingredient to make these more exciting. My favorite is a dash of cinnamon and a few dark chocolate chips.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, and add the butter/oil (I used coconut oil). Spoon in a small amount of batter and fry for a couple minutes, until you see it start to rise and the bottom is nice and brown. Carefully flip it over and let it cook for another few minutes.
*You’ll notice that the batter is quite loose, which leads to a more fragile pancake. I like to keep these on the smaller side, as they’re easier to flip this way.
Top as you would with any pancake: butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit, compote or even chocolate syrup. Don’t feel bad if you end up eating this entire recipe in one sitting (I sure as hell didn’t, but I guess that’s normal), it’s very light!
