Next level nanacakes (aka healthy, no-flour pancakes you’ll be obsessed with)


You’re probably thinking fluffy, yummy goodness.

BUT, if you’re following any foodie bloggers on IG, you’re probably also thinking NANACAKES.

I love nanacakes.

If you haven’t heard of them yet, they’re pancakes made with 2 ingredients: eggs + a banana.


No flour. No added sugar. Super simple.

These are next level nanacakes (LOL!).

Think nanacakes + extra protein + extra fiber + omega 3s + a bunch more flavor—& they’re just as quick to throw together as your 2-ingredient nanacakes.

Here’s the breakdown:


(makes 1 serving – multiple by 2 for 2 people, etc)

  • 2 eggs (preferably organic & pasture-raised)
  • 1 banana
  • A bunch of chia seeds, hemp seeds, & ground flax seeds (pour it in!!! go crazy. you can wing the amount, it doesn’t need to be precise)
  • Pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon)

+ olive oil spray

The chia seeds & ground flax seeds provide omega-3s, fiber, & magnesium. Plus, the ground flax seeds help thicken the batter kind of like how flour would if we were using it—so I pour in a BUNCH of ground flax seeds.

The hemp seeds provide a ton of additional protein, fiber, magnesium & iron—plus hemp seeds have a yummy, nutty flavor that I love. I get these.


  • Whisk all the ingredients together in a large bowl. I like to keep some chunks of banana in there so I don’t make it perfectly smooth. This saves me time too (ha! I’m all about it)
  • Spray a skillet with olive oil and heat it on high heat. You want the skillet to look kind of soaked—so spray a lot of olive oil. As soon as it heats up (this will happen REALLY fast), lower it to medium heat
  • While on medium heat, use a spoon to pour little circles of batter onto the skillet like you would normal pancakes
  • Since I usually make a bunch and only 3-4 fit in my skillet at a time, I usually spray the skillet (again, liberally) once or twice more while making all of them. I spray the skillet between each batch so the 2nd, 3rd, etc batches don’t stick to the pan.

Let me know if that makes sense or if you have any questions! I also love topping them with some honey and fresh berries, & some more pumpkin pie spice/cinnamon. SOOO GOOD.

I make these alllll the time during the weekends.

Arrash loves them too—and he’s obsessed with fluffy, flour-filled, buttery pancakes, so even if you are too, you’ll want to try these : )

Give it a try & LMK what you think.

Oh, & you can get creative with it too—add cocoa nibs, chocolate, whatever you want. Mix it up. Have fun with it.
