5 Minute Banana Pancakes

No excuses with this recipe, its fast, easy, and super good. The kids will love it and so will you! I make a big batch on Sunday and feed my kids this one all week long.  They go off to school with a solid mix of protein, carbs, and good fat!


2 ripe bananas

4 eggs (or 6 egg whites)

2 tablespoons peanut butter or almond butter

Dash vanilla

Dash Cinnamon

Optional cup of oatmeal uncooked

Mix all the ingredients in a blender and cook. I use coconut oil to coat the griddle.  Fantastic consistency and so sweet you don’t even need syrup.

    1. They hold together fine Helen….I didn’t use oatmeal this morning and they held fine. Photos are of the pancakes with only ingredients listed. 🙂

    2. Hey Helen, I made them this morning without oats and without egg yolks – and they stayed in tact. They are more like crepes than pancakes – fluffy due to eggs and sweet due to banana. No flour or cakey texture. Tasty!

  1. I can’t wait to try these- tonite! One question: Can you tell me what pea protein is? Is it similar to whey protein? Thanks!

    1. Pea Protein is an all natural, synthetic free form of protein. You can get it at high health. 25 grams of veggie protein, low carbs, and low sugar.

  2. Made these this morning with no yolk and almond butter. A bit thicker than a crepe. Topped with fresh blueberries and blackberries too, though they are plenty sweet and tasty on their own. A nice change from my standard scrambled egg whites or oatmeal. Just need to figure out serving size of mix, calories etc.
