Have you ever tried two-ingredient banana pancakes? They're a magical little recipe — just two ingredients and a little flip time on the griddle and you've got tender, toasty, totally delicious pancakes that kind of taste like the inside of French toast.
But that's just the beginning. Since they're so easy (and so healthy), why not go the extra mile and get fancy with your pancakes? Here are 10 little upgrades that take them from delightfully simple to just plain awesome.
The Original Recipe
How To Make 2-Ingredient Banana Pancakes
Add a handful of blueberries to the pancake before flipping it, then serve with extra blueberries, whipped cream, and honey.
Granola & Yogurt
Add a handful of granola to the pancake before flipping, then serve with Greek yogurt, extra granola, and a drizzle of honey.
Nutella (Of Course)
What? You knew we would. And these are the best, naturally. Smear a spoonful of Nutella over the pancake just before flipping, then serve with extra Nutella.
Apple & Cinnamon
A treat that tastes like fall. Stir about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon into a batch of banana pancake batter. Cook as usual then top with sliced apples, a drizzle of maple syrup, and cinnamon.
Add a small handful of finely chopped strawberries to a pancake just before flipping, then garnish with whipped cream and more strawberries.
Swirl a spoonful of warm jam onto a pancake before flipping. Garnish with more jam and a shake of powdered sugar.
Finely chop a few tablespoons of almonds, cashews, and chocolate chips. Add a sprinkle to the batter before flipping a pancake, then garnish with more.
Add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder to a batch of banana pancake batter. Cook as usual then garnish with whipped cream and more cocoa powder.
Add coconut flakes to a pancake before flipping. Garnish with mango slices, orange segments, and more coconut flakes.
Peanut Butter & Honey
Whisk about 1 tablespoon peanut butter into a batch of banana pancake batter. Cook as usual, then top with a dollop of crunchy peanut butter and a drizzle of honey.
Pro tip! Adding mix-ins to your pancake batter makes an already delicate pancake harder to flip. Go light on the mix-ins, especially until you get the hang of it, and err on the side of caution using longer cook times at lower heat, especially while cooking the first side of the pancake.
There you go! I think the Nutella is my favorite. What about you? How do you like to upgrade your banana pancakes?
