After you’ve tried our copycat version of Linda Sun’s pancake recipe below, let us know what you think. We appreciate hearing from our readers.


Pancakes for a weekend brunch or Sunday breakfast can be a wonderful tradition for those who gather around your table. Pancakes are so versatile and can be homemade, made with a mix or even purchased already made in your grocery store freezer section.

Pancakes are also versatile in that you can use whatever toppings you like best. We’ve been known to use peanut butter, fresh fruit, chocolate chips, whipped cream, a favorite syrup, honey, among other things.

2 ingredient Healthy Pancakes (Gluten, grain + Diary-Free; no added sugar)

Believe it or not, you can make 2 ingredient healthy pancakes by just using banana and eggs. Banana helps to give your pancakes the consistency and flavor, while eggs are the agent that helps hold it all together.

We recommend using one egg and one banana to make your 2 ingredient healthy pancakes. And these are naturally gluten free, grain free, dairy free, and have no sugar added.

How to make healthy pancakes, tips for success:

One of the best ways to make healthy pancakes is to sweeten them naturally with fruit, rather than dumping in a bunch of sugar or artificial sweetener. Use fruit such as blueberries, strawberries, bananas, or whatever your favorite fruit is.

Another way to make your pancakes healthier is to add a teaspoon of chia seeds to the mix. Chia seeds are a good source of fiber and are known as a good source of insoluble fiber.

Are these pancakes dairy free?

One of the biggest questions is whether these pancakes are dairy free. The answer is, Yes! The recipe doesn’t include any milk products, which makes it dairy free.

And to help eliminate some confusion, eggs are not considered dairy. Sometimes people confuse them with dairy just because they’re placed in the same vicinity in the grocery store shelves.


1 egg
1 banana
¼ cup oats
16 g protein powder
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons peanut butter
pinch of salt, to taste
cooking oil


1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender or with an electric stand mixer until well blended.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium heat.

3. Spoon batter into skillet and shape pancakes into desired size circles.

4. Sprinkle add-ins such as chocolate chips into batter if desired.

5. Once the pancakes start to bubble, flip them with a spatula.

6. Place the pancakes on a plate and top with toppings. Serve and enjoy.
