Three Ingredient Pancakes

If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you may remember last year’s Three Ingredient Pancakes. Well, this recipe got a serious upgrade… not just with the photos (although it’s certainly humbling to see my food-photography skills, or lack thereof, from a year ago), but with the third ingredient. Many of you might have already tried and fallen in-love with two-ingredient (egg + banana) pancakes, but have you tried them with seed butter?! *drool*

If you haven’t tried this style of pancake before, I know you may be thinking “How can eggs, bananas and seed butter create that delicious stack of pancakes?”, but rest assured, I haven’t bamboozled you. 

I won’t try to explain the food science part (largely because I’m not going to pretend I 100% understand it myself), but these pancakes are the coolest. I’m a big egg person- I eat eggs at least 4-5 days a week for breakfast, but this is an extra creative way to enjoy eggs since each batch has 2 eggs, 1 banana and about a tablespoon of your favorite seed butter!

You can definitely add a touch of maple syrup to this gorgeous stack of hotcakes, but I’d suggest trying them first- you may find they’re sweet enough just from the ripe bananas used in the “batter”

  1. Great idea to add the seed butter! I’ve seen the banana & egg a bunch but I bet this adds more flavor and makes it much more filling.

  2. I’m intrigued by these – I do love me any kind of pancakes and usually put peanut butter on top of them but not in the batter!

  3. The only thing better about pancakes, is pancakes that can be made with 3 ingredients! Thanks for the recipe 🙂

  4. These look amazing! I make a similar version without the nut butter, but I love that twist! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  5. These look scrumptious! And your food photography skills are impressive – just look at that pour!! 🙂

  6. OK – Why do yours look WAY better than mine?! I must have the ratio off. Great photos!

  7. We’ve been on a pancake kick at our house, testing lots of different types. This one is next for sure! Looks great!

    1. Hi Sarah! Yes, you can find “Sunflower Seed Butter” at most grocery stores! I’m a fan of the brand SunButter, but there are other options available. Definitely a good protein source and free of common nut allergens! Thanks for asking.
