Baked pancakes are a wonderful addition to your breakfast meal rotation. They are far lower in fat than pan-fried pancakes, and they still maintain a wonderful flavor! Pssst!!!…. They’re grain-free too!

Okay, so I have to admit that while this recipe is completely doable with 2 ingredients, I just could not leave well enough alone. So technically, this is a 5 ingredient pancake. But don’t stress out on me yet, it’s still a very simple recipe with ingredients you probably have in your kitchen.

I’ve been hearing a lot lately about 2 ingredient pancakes. So when I woke up this past Saturday morning and realized I was supposed to be making pancakes or waffles but didn’t have a clue what type to make, I remembered these and gave them a try.

I have to be honest, this is the best pancake I’ve ever had! And yes, I meant to say pancake. Not pancake”s”. I didn’t want the mess and hassle of a frying pan, so I baked it as one big pancake, and my oh my, was it delicious! And the best part was, I didn’t have to use any syrup! (My blood sugar is still thanking me for that one!)

Mini Chef loved it as well. In fact, I would say this is a very kid-friendly recipe. Just try it, you’ll see! And if you don’t have all the ingredients, don’t worry. You can still make these just with eggs and bananas and have it turn out great. Enjoy!

Note: If you want to make more than 1 serving at a time, simply double the recipe and use a bigger baking dish. (Who says pancakes have to be round?) The pie pan I used was a 9-inch pan.

Also, these are great with just the eggs and bananas, I’ve also made them with a few additional ingredients I mentioned earlier. So I included them as optional. You can make them any way you see fit.

  • They are so sweet that there is really no need for syrup. But some fruit would be yummy as a topping!

    Thanks for all the great recipes! I’ve been on a clean eating plan for about 4 months and your site has helped me stay on track.

      My pleasure! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. So 2 ingredients would be which ones-banana and egg? Interesting. Can it also be baked on a griddle like regular pancakes?This would make a good afternoon snack for a couple of hungry kindergarteners.

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Yes, yes and yes. :0)

  3. Sounds very intriguing. Unfortunately both my kids hate bananas. Do you think it will work with apple or pear?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      I doubt it. But I do have plenty of other pancake recipes. :0)

  4. graciouspantry says:

    I don’t recommend that. Besides, it mixes up pretty quick.

  5. graciouspantry says:

    I haven’t tried. But I would guess no.

  6. graciouspantry says:

    Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. graciouspantry says:

    Glad you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. graciouspantry says:

    Possibly, but you might have to add more egg to get it to hold together.

  9. graciouspantry says:

    They should, at the very least, be fully yellow. No green areas at all.

  10. graciouspantry says:

    Sure! I would put them in AFTER blending everything. Maybe about 1 tbsp.

  11. H. Marlene Stratton says:

    I made it like a microwave muffin. Used 2 whole eggs and added 1/4 cup flaxmeal. Microwaved 2 1/2 minutes. Ate it with peaches, delicious! Thank you!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Yum! Great idea!

  12. H. Marlene Stratton says:

    Oh, and I added 1 tbsp chia seeds too ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I just love love and love your website. was wondering what to have for breakfast and guess what? I found it in your breakfast options, and having this pancake today!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Wonderful! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe – I don’t care much for bananas, but I didn’t taste the banana in this at all, which I love.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Samantha – Glad you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Hi! I don’t have parchment paper. Would it not work in just a pie pan? Or on a griddle?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Amy – You could try it with a pie pan, just be sure to oil or butter it well as it may stick without the parchment.

  16. Amy Hardman says:

    Girl, you are my idol and an inspiration! Loved the pancake recipe and many others I’ve tried. Thank you for doing all you do ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Amy – My pleasure! ๐Ÿ˜€

  17. If I made these say, on a Sunday…how long would they keep for? Looking to make something at the start of the week to do me into about the middle of the week for having at work!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Natalie – I don’t recommend it with these. I don’t think they’d hold up that well. You would probably be better off with waffles, which you can freeze and pop in the toaster, or oatmeal.

  18. Thank you for posting this! I was going to make the two ingredient pancakes the other day and the batter was so thin that I couldn’t get the pancakes to flip. I figured there had to be a way to bake the batter so that I didn’t waste it. That’s when I found your recipe. 350* for 25 minutes was perfect. The kids loved their ‘breakfast cake’. Thanks again! โค๏ธ

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kym – My pleasure! I’m happy it worked well for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. I will be trying the baked version tomorrow! I have been making larger batches of the griddle version for months. Freezing the pancakes between pieces of parchment paper. We pop them in the toaster oven and top with peanut butter. I’m looking forward to not standing in front of the stove flipping cakes for 30 min!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Becky – Haha!! I know the feeling!! Pancakes are great until you have to stand there and make them! LOL!

  20. I have been standing at the stove cooking them in a frying pan and they are so hard to flip.I also put cinnamon in mine and blueberry works well .I will be trying the oven method now for sure .Thanks

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Rhonda – How strange? Did they get any liquid in them from the blueberries?

  21. Can I cook this pancake in the air fryer & if so how long do you think

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Laura – You can, but you would need to do it in a small cake pan. You’d have to experiment, but I would start with 220 degrees for 3 minutes.

  22. Susan Larkin says:

    I actually have a question. How many does this recipe make? Can you freeze these and then microwave them to heat them up later?

    1. Susan – It really depends on how big you make them. For me, it made one pancake. But it was on the larger side.

  23. Hi! I tried making a recipe similar to this on a griddle and it was an epic fail when I flipped them so I love the idea of baking! Would it would on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet?
