The other morning I woke up starving and was craving pancakes; however I didn't want to go through the trouble of making 'actual' pancakes and I knew that we were going out to lunch later that day so I didn't want anything too heavy. I had seen a recipe for two/three ingredient pancakes floating around the blog world and at first I completely dismissed it. "There is not way you can make a decent pancake with just two or three ingredients!" But, given my level of hungriness and my desire to not cook I figured I would give it a try!
The three ingredients are - 1 egg, 1 banana and 2 tablespoons peanut butter. That's it! (I also added about 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon - which is optional.) The peanut butter is also optional which would make it a two ingredient pancake but I think the peanut butter definitely added to it! Now I will admit that this does not taste 'like' a pancake but it definitely doesn't taste like an egg or banana. It cooks up pretty much identical to a pancake and has the consistency of a non-fluffy pancake. The ingredients yielded three decent sized pancakes and kept me full for the morning.
Three Ingredient Pancakes
1 large egg
1 ripe banana
2 TBS peanut butter
(1/2 tsp cinnamon - optional)
Mix all the ingredients ~ heat a greased or non-stick pan to medium heat ~ pour batter into pan and cook until golden brown and cooked through.

Give it a try and decide for yourself!
