Lawd knows no-one has time to eat a decent breakfast anymore. Since starting my new job back in January, breakfast usually consists of hastily shoving a packet of microwaveable porridge down my neck in the 10 minutes I have before I need to be at my desk. Something has to change!

A few weeks ago, I received a very exciting email from dairy big boys Arla, asking if I would like to be an ambassador for them, and come up with some quick and easy recipes for a delicious breakfast time. *gulp*

Of course, I love a good challenge, me. So in the next few weeks you’ll be seeing no less than seven delicious recipes you can rustle up in less than 10 minutes, so you’ll have a delicious breakfast filling your tum before work. First up, some super-simple 2-ingredient banana pancakes!

You might have seen these magic pancakes doing the rounds on Pinterest a few years ago. People would often accompany pictures of beautiful towering stacks with words such as ‘HIGH PROTEIN’ ‘DAIRY FREE’ ‘LOW CARB’, but fundamentally (and the reason I like them so much), is they are MEGA EASY to make.

All it takes is one medium overripe banana and a couple of eggs. Yep, that’s it. These two ingredients magically transform into delicious squishy pancakes in just a few minutes which you can then top with your favourite bits and pieces. Ready for the recipe? OK.

2 ingredient banana pancakes

Yep, you really just need these two ingredients – that’s it!

2 Ingredient Banana Pancakes with Yoghurt and Honey

You will need:
– 1 overripe medium-sized banana
– 2 eggs
– ½ tsp baking powder (optional but makes them fluffier)

To serve:
– Arla Skyr Yoghurt with Honey
– Fruit of your choice (I chose raspberries because they are the best)
– Runny clear honey.

These really are the easiest things to make in the whole world.

First, mash your banana with a fork in a small bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Sprinkle in the baking powder if using, and beat well until everything is combined.

In a frying pan over a medium heat, heat 1 tsp of oil (vegetable works best, but you can use olive oil or even coconut oil if you like, but remember to turn the heat down as it melts much more quickly).

TIP! Don’t be tempted to use Fry Light or other low fat cooking sprays. You really need a good coating of oil on the pan or else the pancakes won’t cook properly.

Pour a small amount of the batter into the pan, until it spreads out a few inches wide (I very nearly wrote ‘to the size of a Pokeball’ – what is happening to me). You can probably fit two or three in a pan at a time.

cooking 2 ingredient banana pancakes and when to flip them

When small bubbles begin forming around the edge of the banana pancakes, it’s time to flip them. Unlike regular pancakes, these guys are a little tricky to flip over, as they are still quite runny. The best technique I have found is to insert your fish slice/spatula/flipper underneath about half way, then carefully lift up and gently ‘fold’ them over on themselves. If you can’t get the hang of it, feel free to tweet me angrily and ask for help.

Give the pancakes a couple more minutes on the other side.

Once they’re nicely browned on the other side, transfer them to a warmed plate and top with your favourite treats. I chose a big dollop of creamy Skyr Honey, fresh raspberries and a drizzle of clear honey.

These banana pancakes aren’t just a filling and nutritious breakfast for a busy weekday morning, but can also make a delicious weekend treat.
