2-Ingredient Grain-Free Pancakes… and Cooking Like a Noob [RECIPE]

Good Morning Everyone!

Happy Saturday, my friends! Lately I’ve been on a roll… of fail. Let me explain. Two nights ago we had the “chickpea disaster”. I’ve been researching recipes that are grain-free, or low-carb. I was so excited to debut this recipe for chickpea-based chocolate chip cookies. Now, I admit…. this was a stretch. Sometimes you just need a little bit of flour. But no. I was going to give this a try. I confess that I seriously hate peanut butter in any form of cookie. And somewhere in my beautiful, but sometimes blonde brain of mine, I blanked and didn’t realize that these “cookies” had peanut butter in them. It wasn’t until I was finger-deep in the muck mixing it all together did I realize that they were chickpea-peanut butter- cookies. I cringed but made them anyway.

They were about as good as licking peanut butter flavored sand paper. It was awful. I was trying to snap a picture for you guys, but in the end I couldn’t bring myself to share the recipe with you all. However, here is a picture of disaster numero uno….

Disaster #1: Chickpea Peanut Butter Cookies… Ew. 

Without flour they couldn’t really hold together, even in baking. So I don’t know how Popsugar was able to make theirs into an actual cookie. Mine was more like… the consistency of play dough. Okay, so that was a fail. But I was determined to get a really cool recipe for you all to post on here. So it was back to the kitchen!

Last night I made lentil shepherds pie again, (per the request of Mr. Noob Chef), so I didn’t have anything new there. Then, we got in the mood for something sweet so I decided to whip up a batch of vegan brownies that uses applesauce in place of oil. “Perfect!” I thought, “I’ll just take a picture of that”. Y’all somewhere between the mixing, pouring, baking, and eating…. I forgot to take a picture! Yes, our tiny home filled with the delicious scent of brownies and I looked something like this….

Between the three of us we inhaled that small batch of brownies, and again…. I was left with no picture to post on here. *Sighs*. “Okay” I told myself this morning… “this time I will get a recipe for you all… no matter what”!!

Then I remembered that I have bananas… and eggs. The two ingredients needed for these grain-free pancakes I have been meaning to try. Now I’ll let you in on a little secret. (Are you close to the screen? Good)…. I. Hate. Pancakes.

I know!! Crazy, right? I seriously hate pancakes. They are heavy… and too fluffy… it’s like eating sugar-bread for breakfast. Bleh! I’d much prefer a savory breakfast to a sweet one any day. However, I am an open-minded chef, so when Youtuber Darci Isabella (who is a mother of ten!!) demonstrated this simple pancake recipe I was intrigued…

She is all about natural eating, mono-meals, etc. And I just love all things simple. This could be a winning combination, no? I knew that fried bananas were delicious…. and fried eggs are too. But together? I wasn’t sure. (Spoiler alert: it’s great!). These pancakes aren’t really a recipe, so much as they are a…. “throw it together and pop it in a pan”… recipe? Guideline? I don’t know what to call it. Oh well. They tasted great. My only criticism is that they are small so you need to make a bunch to feed the whole family. But if you’re looking for a tasty, grain-free breakfast meal, whip these up for yourself! 🙂 I promise they are worth the few minutes, and you can even sing the Jack Johnson song “Banana Pancakes” while you’re cooking…. I know I did. *winks* Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and as always, keep on cooking ❤
