Easy 2 Ingredient Pancake

I’m all about easy, quick and healthy cooking these days.  And when it comes to breakfast, the quicker the better.  But I get tired of the old standby’s like a bowl of oatmeal or Greek yogurt with fruit.  Sometimes I want something a little different, and that’s when I make 2 ingredient pancakes.

You know that I love the banana-egg version (see blog post here), but I was making that so much I even got tired of it.  Enter the other 2 ingredient pancake:

Oatmeal-Egg Version

This is super filling – packed with fiber-rich oatmeal and protein-filled eggs.  And it doesn’t require a blender, which makes for even faster clean up!  Plus, for those who aren’t big fans of bananas – no banana flavor here!


1/3 cup oats
2 whole eggs or 4 egg whites
optional dash of cinnamon

Mix oats and eggs or egg whites together with a whisk, making sure to break up the egg yolks.  Sprinkle in cinnamon if using.

Coat a pan with non-stick cooking spray or oil of your preference and heat over medium heat.

Pour oat-egg mixture onto pan.  You may need to spread it out a bit with a spatula as it tends to “mound” as you pour it in.

Cook 4-5 minutes, until edges have browned and the bubbling has stopped, and then flip.  Continue cooking another 3-4 minutes until the eggs have thoroughly cooked through.

Then plate and serve!

You can choose any toppings you like.  Lately I’ve been a big fan of a bit of  whipped butter and some Maple Syrup – Agave blend from Trader Joe’s.  But it’s also great topped with fruit or pb&j.

And voila – an easy, healthy breakfast that will keep you full until lunch time.
