When my friend Caryn sent me this recipe for 3-Ingredient Healthy Banana Pancakes, I knew that I just had to include them on the blog. They are genius!

A stack of flourless grain free and gluten free 3 ingredient healthy banana pancakes make kids smile!

With only 3 simple ingredients (banana, eggs, and cinnamon), these healthy banana pancakes are the perfect finger food for your little ones.

You only need 3 ingredients for a healthy breakfast with these banana pancakes

Caryn’s son Reid loves them so much that one batch is never enough! She waits until she has a few overripe bananas and then makes a plateful for her little man.

These healthy pancakes are made gluten free and grain free with banana and egg!

Served with a side of syrup for dipping, I can’t think of a better way to get some fruit and protein into our kiddos’ bodies.

But you know what? These Healthy Banana Pancakes are sweet enough that they don’t even really need any maple syrup. I love to spread some peanut butter on top for a flavorful and satisfying breakfast.

And by the way, I can vouch for the fact that they’re pretty delicious, too. Reid has good taste! These mini pancakes are a great breakfast or snack for adults as well. Plus, you can prep them in advance and keep a stash in the refrigerator for a few days. Just microwave to reheat and breakfast is served.


  • Omit the cinnamon and season with other spices. Pumpkin Pie seasoning, Apple Pie seasoning, or just a dash of nutmeg are all delicious!
  • Use the batter to make one giant pancake in a small skillet. It’s MUCH faster than flipping individual pancakes, so that’s how I tend to prepare them for myself.
  • Add toppings! While butter and syrup are traditional, other good options include peanut butter, almond butter, Greek yogurt, and fresh berries.

These 3 ingredient healthy banana pancakes are a gluten free and grain free breakfast for toddlers and little kids!

Thanks for the fun recipe, Caryn!

    These pancakes are so delicious best pancake I’ve tried. I made a big one for myself and topped it with frozen berries, passion fruit, Greek yogurt and maple syrup, new regular for me. Can’t wait for my little girl to try them when she can eat . They also cook to just the right thickness. Quick and easy too. Thank you so much for the recipe.

    These pancakes were not good. They have an unpleasant spongey texture and are extremely thin, like crepes. My family took one bite and wouldn’t touch them.

      It wasn’t good and didn’t even really work. It’s needs a binder more then just egg. If this is supposed to be gluten free, use a gluten free oat flour. That’s my suggestion since that’s what I did to make it work.

    Didn’t work for us. I was picturing a more pancake-y texture, but it was more like banana eggs. My kid, 17 months, didn’t like them beyry much, unfortunately.

      I made these because I found out last minute I was out of oats. I was actually really happy with how they turned out. The batter is going to be runny since it’s just egg and banana but it wasn’t hard to get a passable pancake shape and nice, thin crepe-like texture in the end. I struggled to get all the banana lumps out of the batter but I was rushing. Either way, I will probably make these again, they are simple, convenient, and tasty. A nice way to eat more whole eggs too!

  4. Taste wise, these are great! But very tricky to make since they don’t hold any sort of form and they turn into a mess when you try to flip them.

    LOVED !!!! I tried these & with just adding just a little bit maybe a little less than 1/2 cup of pancake/ waffle mix , it came out perfect!
    I also used just ONE banana (: & TWO eggs (: ! With a touch of cinnamon and a dash of vanilla!

  6. I added a tablespoon of gluten free flour, some nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon to mine and they turned out great. I roll them up like crepes with homemade jam and berries in the middle. Yum!
