Like a lot of you, we went bananas for the popular 2-ingredient, paleo-friendly pancake recipe that’s been such a huge hit on social media — just eggs and bananas! But we thought there was one thing missing: chocolate.
So we added cocoa powder and made these chocolatey, fruity, scrumptious and satisfying pancakes that won’t compromise most dietary restrictions (since they’re free of dairy, sugar, and flour).
Buzzing your batter in the blender helps to whip more air into the batter and give these pancakes a little lift, but they do turn out a bit thinner and more crepe-like than your typical pancakes. That just makes them perfect for rolling up with some fresh bananas slices or strawberries, or slathering with peanut butter for a hearty, healthy, and quick breakfast.
We were skeptical too, but you’ll be really surprised at how scrumptious these pancakes taste, even with such a very brief list of ingredients. If simplicity is your goal, stick with the basic recipe — they really don’t need a thing. But if you want these to taste more like traditional pancakes, feel free to add in a pinch of salt, a dash of vanilla, or a little baking powder to make them fluffier.
