If you’ve spend like, any amount of time on Pinterest or the interwebs, you’ve probably seen the 2-ingredient pancake thing pop up all over your feed. Just bananas + eggs. Simple, easy breakfast.

But what if you’re vegan? Or you’re out of eggs? Or you just want to change it up? Well, these pancakes are for you.

Vegan and gluten-free, these babies are delicious and just as easy as the OG version. Bonus: IMO they taste even better (more like banana bread, less egg-y) and you probably have all the ingredients on hand already.

You’re less than 5 minutes from a breakfast full of bananas and whole grain goodness, with a punch of calcium and vitamin D if you select fortified non-dairy milk (which most are). Use gluten-free oats if that’s your jam, and select soy milk if you want an extra protein boost.

Perfect to use up any extra bananas you have laying around, you can make a big batch and store them in the freezer to have a quick breakfast ready all week long.

Drizzle with syrup or melt nut butter all over these babies and prepare to be amazed. You may never make the egg version again.

  • Step 3

    Over medium heat on a flat-top skillet or using a pan on the stovetop, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto a heated pan and cook for about 4 minutes, until bubbles begin to form and the pancake begins to brown on the bottom if you peak with a pancake flipper. Flip pancake and cook on other side until both sides are lightly browned, about 4 minutes.
