How to make Easy 3 Ingredient Banana Egg Pancakes:

So, let talk about how to make these yummy 3 Ingredient Banana Egg Pancakes for Paleo and Low Carb or Keto dieter..

Here’s the ingredients you‘ll need:

Step-By-Step Instructions:

step by step instructions for how to make gluten free keto paleo banana egg pancakes
  1. Mix together the bananas, eggs and cinnamon. You can mix them by hand, but I suggest using a blender to make quick work and a smoother “batter”. (Photo 1 & 2)
  2. Get a pan heated to a medium high heat, melt a knob of butter or coconut oil and carefully scoop the batter into the pan. You’ll need to do 2-3 batches depending on the size of your pan, and add more oil as needed. (Photo 3)
  3. Cook the pancakes for a minute or so per side (I like to put a lid on the pan, because it really expedites the cooking process).
    1. PRO TIP: I know the pancakes are ready to flip when they start to look “dry” on top. (See Photo 4)
  4. Voilà!  You’re good to go! Delicious piping hot 3 ingredients banana pancakes ready to be devoured. (Photo 5 & 6)

When I’m feeling extra fancy, I like to serve it with a drizzle of honey, a dollop of coconut cream, some fresh strawberries and even a sprinkle of chopped pecan nuts.

The most important thing to keep about this recipe, or any other banana pancakes, is that you’re never going to get “proper” fluffy pancakes using only 3 ingredients. If you think of this as more of a banana “fritter”, you’re less likely to end up disappointed. 

When you’re making gluten-free flourless banana pancakes using simple fresh whole ingredients, you can only do so much.

But – this treat has great banana flavor, the shape of a pancake and it’s definitely a healthier and satisfying low-carb, keto or paleo treat.

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda (optional)

Instructions

  • Mix all the ingredients together until well combined.
  • Melt a knob of butter in a pan over a medium heat and cook about 4 pancakes per batch (depending on the size of the pan).
  • Allow the pancakes to cook about 1-2 minutes per side. I like to cover the pan while the pancakes cook on the first side before flipping. This allows the top to steam a little bit, making it fluffier and also easier to flip.
  • Serve immediately as is, or with a dollop of coconut cream and fresh strawberries.

Tips and Tricks:

1. You’ll know the banana pancakes are ready to flip when they start to look a lighter yellow and almost “dry” on top. (See step-by-step photos in post).
2. Serve these pancakes with a drizzle of honey, a dollop of coconut cream and some fresh berries.

This recipe contains 12g Net Carbs per serving. If this fits into your macros, and you’re willing to sacrifice a chunk of your daily carb allowance to eat this sweet treat, great! If not, give it a pass.  
Banana pancakes are an infinitely better choice than the floury/sugary kind, so if you’re craving something sweet – this might be all you need to stay on track.

    1. I’ve got a clear disclaimer about the banana/keto thing in the recipe card and the post. Thanks for your feedback.

  1. Hi there! I was wondering if these will be freezer friendly? And if so, would you suggest “defrosting” them before reheating? Or will it be fine to just microwave (for long long?) or if it’ll be better to toast them in the toaster? Thanks! (:

    1. Phew…I’ll have to do a bit of testing before I can answer for sure, but I would think that microwaving them for 10 seconds at the time until warmed though should do the trick.

    1. I address this multiple times in the post and the recipes card. For a few months now, I market this recipe mainly as “flourless banana pancakes”.

    I love these banana pancakes but I have a question. How are these Keto friendly when they have over 19g of carbs. I’m new to Keto and trying to understand all this..

    Made these for breakfast this morning & they are Wonderful! Topped them with fresh raspberries, very Yummy 🙂 I’m eating way less carbs and cut out all refined sugar to help with my anxiety. Thank you for this easy & delicious recipe.

  4. I’ve been doing lazy keto/Low carb diet on and off since june I’ve lost 35lbs and I’ve eaten these twice. My 5 yr old niece LOVES them and even went home telling her parents about them. Definitely worth making!
