A quick and easy grain-free pancake!
Print Recipe


  • 1 large banana , very ripe with black spots on skin
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • *optional: 1 tablespoon almond butter (or peanut butter, if you prefer)


  • Preheat your oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, mash the banana until it resembles a puree, then mix in the egg, baking soda, and nut butter, until well incorporated.
  • Using a spoon, drop the batter onto the lined baking sheet into 4 evenly sized pancakes. (I used about 2 spoonfuls per pancake)
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes at 400F, or until golden brown. The parchment paper prevents sticking, without the need for any added butter or oil!
  • Serve warm, with or without syrup, and enjoy!
