These gluten-free flourless pancakes are just 3 ingredients. They are easy to whip up and taste like banana flavored pancakes.
A few years ago I tried making flourless banana pancakes for the first time. My results were just okay. But it’s always been a recipe I wanted to go back to and tinker with. And after five different test runs, I’m really happy with how these came out.
They cook up like real pancakes. The first one even comes out looking like that first throwaway pancake. And the rest of them come out beautifully golden brown and fluffy.
You can also do variations by adding chocolate chips or nuts. I love the intense banana flavor with every bite.
No they don’t taste exactly the same as traditional pancakes that use wheat flour. The texture is a little moist and delicate, but they do taste good and they are super easy to make.
3 Ingredient Flourless Banana Pancakes
- 1 large ripe banana the riper the better
- 1 large egg
- 2 tbsp quick oats
- 1/4 tsp baking powder optional, but it will give your pancakes slightly more rise
- In a blender or food processor add all ingredients. Blend until banana is smooth and ingredients are evenly mixed. It's okay for the oats to still be in pieces.
- Grease a skillet or griddle with cooking oil spray and bring to medium heat. Pour 2 tbsp of batter into the skillet once it is hot. Try to keep the batter to 2 tbsp because if they are too big the pancakes will be hard to flip.
- Cook pancake until bubbles appear on the surface and begin to pop. Carefully flip the pancake over and cook a few more minutes until it is cooked on both sides. The first pancake will likely come out looking unevenly colored, but the pancakes you cook in the same spot after should look golden brown on top. Repeat with remaining batter.
- Serve pancakes with syrup, fresh banana slices, whipped cream or other toppings of your choice.
