Flourless Banana Pecan Pancakes

September 29, 2023

What do you do when you want pancakes for breakfast but don’t want the guilt? Enter the flourless banana pecan pancakes. I have been making these pancakes for years and never thought too of much of them. Many times, they have been a way for me to use very ripe bananas that were past their prime. At least for me. Then one day, I made them for others and realized that this recipe should be shared. So here it is!

These pancakes have basically two ingredients, bananas and eggs. I like to add cinnamon and pecans, but you can use any other nut if you’d like. Walnuts work well too. Or just leave the nuts out all together if you prefer.

Making these flourless banana pancakes is super easy. You’ll be surprised at how much simpler they are to make than regular pancakes.



Although these flourless banana pecan pancakes are super simple to make, here are two notes for you to have the perfect pancakes.


And that’s it! Super simple, right? Give it a go and let me know what you think!
