These pancakes will literally be ready in 30 minutes or less, they don’t requires too many ingredients and certainly don’t require any special cooking skills. You’ll need a quality skillet or a pan that you can rely on, a few eggs, a few bananas, a chunk of real butter and spices. That’s it and nothing more! I’ve told you they’re pretty easy to make.

I topped them with my favorite cashew butter and dark chocolate. Other kinds of nut butters will work just as good, almond butter and hazelnut butter are my other favorites.

Here are a few ideas when to make and/or serve these pancakes:

  • When you want a quick dessert that’s not loaded with sugar.
  • When you have unexpected guests and want to surprise them.
  • As a recovery meal after your workout session or after a run.
  • As a simple yet satisfying breakfast, lunch or even for dinner.
  • When you have eggs and bananas and want to try a new recipe.

These pancakes are very easy to make, always low-carb and gluten free, and will keep hunger away for a long time. But that’s not all, they’re also loaded with healthy fats and quality protein to keep you thriving

Ingredients

Pancakes

  • 9 eggs
  • 3 big bananas (peeled and sliced)
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 6 tsp butter (for cooking)

Topping

  • 50 g dark chocolate (85%, melted)
  • 100 g cashew butter

Instructions

  • Prepare your bananas: peel, slice and, using a big fork, mash them into a puree.
  • In a medium bowl, add eggs, mashed bananas, vanilla and cinnamon. Using a whisker or a fork, mix all the ingredients until well combined.
  • Preheat cast iron skillet and melt 1/2 tsp of butter. Note that we’ll be cooking each pancake into about 1/2 tsp of butter.
  • Using a medium ladle, add your first pancake into the skillet.
  • Cook on small heat until lightly brown on one side, then carefully flip using a silicone spatula.
  • Continue cooking on the other side until done, making sure not to burn the pancake.
  • Once done, using the same silicone spatula remove pancake from skillet.
  • Repeat from #3 until the entire batter is gone, making sure to add 1/2 tsp of butter before cooking each pancake.

Notes

There’s no need for any kind of sweetener since bananas already come with a lot of sweetness by default.
Feel free to play around with the toppings, you can get very creative with melted chocolate, fresh berries or nut butter.
