Healthy Two Recipe Banana Pancakes

Facing post-Christmas sugar cravings, but wanting to eat healthily? Pancakes are seemingly the ultimate treat breakfast choice, and there are hundreds, if not thousands of recipes out there offering up healthy twists on the much-loved dish. One that I’ve seen around, is the really simple banana and egg pancakes. It couldn’t be easier; all you need is two eggs and one mashed banana. From there you can add lots of extra ingredients and flavourings to create your perfect breakfast or brunch. I have included a few ideas below:

Essential Ingredients:

  • 1 medium banana, mashed
  • 2 free range/organic eggs

Optional Extras:

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground or fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp raisins or dried blueberries/cranberries/goji berries
  • 2 tbsp fresh berries
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder


  • Low sugar jam (I love Meridian’s organic blackcurrant spread)
  • Maple or agave syrup and pecans
  • Honey and almonds
  • Extra berries or fruit

Combine the eggs and banana and any extra ingredients. Place a frying pan over a medium-high heat and add half a teaspoon of coconut oil or vegetable oil. Pour a small amount of the pancake mix into the centre of the pan. Aim to make quite small pancakes, as they can be a bit more delicate to turn or flip than traditional pancakes. Use one or two fish slices to turn the pancake after 30 seconds, or until the underside has started to turn a light golden brown. Finish off the batch, stack the pancakes up high and enjoy, guilt free!
