How to make 3-ingredient chocolate banana pancakes

Ingredients | Chocolate banana pancakes

  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 ripe banana (sliced)
  • 1-2 teaspoons of cacao powder

Toppings (Optional)

  • 1 ripe banana (sliced)
  • A handful of fresh raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon of peanut butter (Pip & Nut is my favourite)


  1. Add the sliced banana, eggs and cacao powder to a blender and blend for 20-30 seconds (or until the mix has a thick batter-like consistency)
  2. Heat a little oil in a frying pan over a medium heat
  3. Pour in two seperate puddles of batter until each pancake is approx 4 inches across (roughly American pancake size)
  4. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until bubbles start to appear on the top, then flip with a fish slice and cook the other side (1-2 minutes.) Repeat with remaining batter to make 2 more pancakes.
  5. Serve the pancakes with fresh raspberries, sliced banana and a good drizzle of peanut butter.
