  • 2 Tbsp almond butter substitute any nut or seed butter
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 1 tsp oil for the griddle


  1. Heat griddle over medium heat, apply oil to griddle if needed. Mash banana in bowl with fork.
  2. Add almond butter and eggs. Whisk to combine. Texture will be slightly lumpy and runny (not thick like traditional pancakes). If you think it is too runny add another teaspoon or two of nut butter.
  3. Pour or ladle pancake mixture onto griddle. Makes four small pancakes.
  4. Cook until bubbles evident and then carefully flip. If you start to flip the pancake and it is not holding together just let it cook a bit longer before flipping.
  5. Cook on 2nd side of pancake about 1-2 minutes or until no longer dough-like on the inside.

Recipe Notes

Hint: these pancakes are better slightly undercooked, however, I am NOT advising you to eat undercooked eggs. We eat over easy, undercooked, and gently cooked eggs all the time in our household but I am very careful when I source my eggs and have weighed the risks and benefits.
