2-ingredient gluten-free banana pancakes


I've been pretty lazy lately.  I just can't seem to summon the courage to make anything more complicated than a boiled egg.  Consequently, anything that requires only 2 ingredients is right up my alley.  The other benefit of these pancakes is that they are paleo, grain-free, and gluten-free.  They're not vegan though.  Let's forgive them that.  They can't be everything to everyone.







Here's the recipe!

2-Ingredient Gluten-Free Banana Pancakes

Ingredients:
2 ripe bananas (we freeze our super ripe bananas for future use - they thaw out enough in like 5 minutes)
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Directions:
1) Using a blender (we use our hand blender), puree all of the ingredients together.
2) Heat a griddle on medium low heat and butter it (we use coconut oil).
3) Pour one tbsp worth of the batter onto the griddle (smaller pancakes seem to work better with this recipe - if they're too big they get too hard to flip over).  Wait 2-3 minutes than flip the pancakes and cook for another 2-3 minutes on the other side.  At this step, you really need to watch the pancakes as they cook so they do over-cook or under-cook before they're flipped. 
4) Serve immediately.  Enjoy with maple syrup or your choice of toppings (Mr. A likes peanut butter on them). 


Enjoy!
