3 Ingredient Pancakes

Do you have a….

Gluten allergy

Dairy allergy

Nut allergy

Soy allergy?

Fear not. This recipe is for you.


This will be my second post about pancakes. Am I obsessed with pancakes? Just a little.

This recipe is technically for a pancake, however, I feel like it’s more of a crepe. Both are equally good and what’s great is that this particular recipe is SO versatile!

Light, not fluffy

Because of the lack of baking soda or flour, these aren’t going to be your regular fluffy pancakes. There are only TWO ingredients in this recipe – however, there are some alterations/additions that you can make depending on your wants/needs.

Basic Recipe

2 – large eggs

1 – ripe banana (the more ripe the banana is the more brown it may become due to natural sugar content)

+ whatever toppings you so desire

That’s it. Seriously.

This is a pretty well known recipe so it’s difficult to give credit to any one person. I will, however, give you a couple of ideas on how to spice up this recipe “Crystal style.”

Possible recipe additions

1 tsp of ground cinnamon

1/2 cup of plain oats (can be gluten-free)

Pinch of Chocolate shavings

Pinch of Coconut flakes

Tip: I do not recommend adding additional liquid as it may cause the batter to become too runny. As a result, it will not cook properly. It should look like the photos below:

1 tsp of cacao nibs

1 tsp of maca root powder

Other ideas:

Coconut flakes

Your favorite nut butter

Agave or honey




{hungry yet?}

Whether you are paleo, gluten-free, dairy free, nut-free, soy-free – this recipe is for YOU. It takes about 15-20 minutes to prepare and cook. Perfect for a lazy Saturday morning, before/after a workout.

Banana’s are loaded with potassium and fiber and are fairly low on the glycemic index.

According to My FitnessPal, the 3-ingredient pancakes without toppings is about 245 calories.
