Single Serving 2-Ingredient Banana Pancake/Scramble

Another one of my favorite breakfasts has become my banana pancake or scramble. It's a basic 2-ingredient recipe that can be customized to your liking with different add-ins and toppings. I've shared this recipe with a lot of friends who have all given my a quizzical look, but then went on to say how amazing it was when they actually tried it!

2-Ingredient Banana Pancake/Scramble
makes 3 pancakes
Banana Scramble
  • 1/2 medium ripe banana (fresh or frozen and thawed)
  • 2 egg whites (or 1 egg white + 1 T chia seeds)
  • 2 t pb2
  •  3 t unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Optional Add-Ins: fresh fruit, flax seed, unsweetened cocoa powder, pb2, chocolate pb2, unsweetened shredded coconut, etc.
  • Optional Topping: cinnamon, nut butter, sugar-free jelly, Greek yogurt, fruit, unsweetened shredded coconut, seeds/nuts, etc.
  1. In a small bowl mash the banana until smooth
  2. Mix together the pb2 and almond milk; set aside
  3. Add the egg whites and chia seeds (if using chia seeds, let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes to gel)
  4. Mix in any other Add-In options
  5. Heat a skillet over medium heat and prep it with healthy non-stick cooking spray
  6. For Pancakes: Scoop out 2-3 portions of the batter onto the skillet and cook on each side for about 3 minutes (be delicate when flipping because these cakes are not as
  7. For Scramble: Add the mixture to the skillet and cook as you would a scrambled egg - breaking apart the mixture to ensure even cooking
  8. Top with the pb2 sauce or any other desired toppings
Before you judge it or give me that quizzical look, give it a try and let me know what you think!
