Flourless Gluten-Free Pancakes

Just two main ingredients: banana and egg
TIMEJune 21, 2016

Yes, you heard right—just two whole-food ingredients. We can’t get over how simple and healthy these are. A protein, fiber, potassium, nutrient-rich powerhouse of a breakfast with no grains.

We are huge pancake fans and typically have them once a weekend. Pancakes are our husbands’ specialty. We make them using healthy, gluten-free, and local ingredients but were excited to find this gem of a recipe.

We couldn’t resist superfooding these up with chia, flax, hemp, and cocoa. We’re already testing them with matcha, coconut, and other fruits.

They are kid-approved too!

Makes 4 pancakes


Use organic when possible

  • 2 organic and cage-free eggs
  • 1 banana, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax
  • 1 tablespoon hemp hearts
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • Coconut oil for frying
  • Optional add-ins to the batter: matcha, coconut, other fruit, dark chocolate chips
  • Optional toppings: fruit, berries, maple syrup, raw honey, grass-fed organic yogurt or coconut yogurt, nut butter


Whisk eggs in a bowl, add the banana, and mash together. Ensure the banana is fully mashed. Add in the remainder of the ingredients to form a batter.

Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Pour in the batter to create a thin pancake. Cook for about 1 minute before flipping it. Once flipped, cook for another minute.

Serve with the above toppings of your choice.
