Vegetarian Gluten Free Pancakes Recipe

This is a super quick, super easy, super healthy recipe that helps satisfy your pancake cravings.  These are very thin, similar to crepes, so don’t make these expecting your typical fluffy buttermilk pancakes.


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • Optional (for enhancing flavor and texture):
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
    • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
    • 1/4 cup baking powder (for texture and fluffiness)


To help with the texture whip eggs well before incorporating with the bananas. The baking powder will also help with texture.  Mix all the ingredients.  Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour about 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot with some berries.
