When Amelia began eating solids a few years back, I was a stickler for trying every single food by the books starting with purees, then working my way up to small pieces of food and eventually larger sized pieces of food. She was a very picky eater – even the plate she wanted her food on how to be a specific one and a specific color!
Fast forward to when I introduced Matilda to food, and I did things very differently. I choose to do BLW (Baby Led Weaning) and I’m glad I did. Maybe it’s how I introduced food to her or maybe it’s her personality, but this kid can EAT!!! She was a great eater from the day she was born and still is at 14 months old.
While Amelia never ate these pancakes as a baby, she loves eating them now and so does Matilda. And I like giving them grain-free options since I know they’ll eat carbs either as snacks or at other meals throughout the day. I usually mix in flax to mine and serve them with a side of fruit, but both girls were oddly starving this am and they gobbled up 7 each plain!
The other good thing about these is they have the same look as regular flour-based pancakes. While they are a more delicate and don’t have the same solid bite to them, they are sweet and delicious. I ate a lot of these when I was doing Whole30 earlier this year too! They really helped with curbing those carb cravings!

2-Ingredient Banana Egg Pancakes
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 large eggs
- Optional mix-ins: flax seed, chia seed, hemp hearts, ground up instant oatmeal, vanilla, any nut butter, pumpkin puree, cinnamon
- Optional toppings: fruit, powdered sugar, maple syrup, honey, greek yogurt
In a blender or small bowl, mash up banana. Add in whisked eggs to the banana paste until a liquidy batter forms (if you want to add in any optional mix-ins, add them here!).
In a large frying pan prepared with cooking spray, add 1-2 tablespoons (don’t make them bigger or they’ll fall apart when you flip them) of pancake batter to pan and cook over low heat (these cook quickly!). You’ll know when to flip them when they begin to bubble (see picture below).
- Remove from heat and top with any optional toppings, if desired. Enjoy immediately.
