3-Ingredient Pancakes

These single-serving pancakes are a bit more like the custardy center bite of French toast: fluffy, eggy, and golden delicious.

  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  1. 1. Mash banana with a fork until smooth. Add flour and egg; stir well with a whisk.
  2. 2. Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Spoon batter onto skillet, using one-third of batter for each pancake.
    Cook 2 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Carefully turn pancakes over; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned.

Hands-on: 10 min. Total: 10 min.
