So before I even get into the pancakes, I should probably admit to you that for breakfast I had to sneak just one bite of the homemade pesto pizza the BOY and I made with our friends last night.




That was the BOY’s meatlovers and here is my veggie pesto on thin crust.




It tasted just as good leftover this morning when I had a small sliver before making breakfast.  Also before breakfast….




Hot Black Mango Tea!




When your car looks like this, every little bit of warmth helps : )  It took the BOY and I 30 minutes to thaw out and break into my car before heading downtown today.  Which is why, it was a good thing that I had a hearty breakfast!




I was a huge fan of the Paleo Pancakes and loved Tina’s OMG. Pancakes!, so I knew that I had to try these Two Ingredient Pancakes when I discovered them on Jessie Bear’s website.

It is well documented that I am terrible at flipping pancakes and today was NO different.

I had all of my spatulas on standby as I attempted my flip, but still ended up with a multi-pieced pancake.




So I smothered it with almond butter, coconut and strawberries.  A combination that had my test buds singing and me ready to head back into the kitchen for round II.






I will learn this eventually right?! 




Check out the recipe and tips for making Two-Ingredient Pancakes.




We had an exciting day in the city that started with a cookie decorating lesson with the ladies and ended with fajitas and the family.




And now my tired bottom is back on the couch for the Shameless premiere.



Any pancake flipping tips?

  1. Beautiful cookies! I’m alway in awe when people can decorate and frost them so nicely.
    I’m also brutal at flipping pancakes, but I think it’s because I’m too anxious and flip them too early.

    • I think I am an early flipper too : ) Cookie decorating was so fun. My friend is super talented and I was excited with how nice my cookies turned out. I’m hoping to have time to make a batch of mine own before Valentine’s Day!

  2. Thanks for the ping back girl! Glad you liked the pancake, even if you had difficulties making it haha. My tip is to use a nonstick pan that’s bigger than the one you used.

    I have yet to try a two-ingredient pancake, but need to asap! What a great, warm breakfast… perfect for a cold winter morning!

    Those cookies are perfect! :)

  4. It still looks amazing!:) I definitely need to get on making one of those

  5. Hmmm . . . I made the 2-ingredient pancakes once (experience is on the blog), and they came out looking just like pancakes (albeit a bit burnt . . . ) and flipped okay. Maybe it has something to do with getting the ratio of banana to egg just right?

    • Possible. After making them, I read Tina’s tips and it seems that the ratio is KEY. I also think (becaus Jessie helped me out) that I need to use a bigger pan. I should have made pancake flipping one of my 2013 goals. Ha ha!

  6. Two ingredient pancakes?! Love this idea!! I am the worst at flipping also and generally making pancakes…I make my husband make them for me :) Also, I have Shameless DVR’d and ready to watch tonight…can’t wait!

    Two ingredients, can’t beat that! I used to be awful at making and flipping pancakes, I have to really get my spatula under there and make sure that I have the entire pancake under there. I bought a huge spatula about a year ago. It’s awesome.

  8. My pancakes always end up breaking too– always taste good, but don’t look quite as good!

  9. Hey great job on the cookie decorating at least! Pancake flipping looks hard but all that matters is that it tastes good. With fruit and almond butter- what’s not to love? :)

  10. I watched Grey’s tonight too!! The strawberries and cookies look great….frosted are my favorite. Pancake flipping tips: make sure to grease the pan beforehand and most importantly use a flat pan like a skillet. Happy pan caking.

    • I was shocked to find such fresh berries in the middle of winter but happily picked up a few containers. I think I ned a flatter pan and should probably bust out my griddler next time. Thanks for the suggestion!

  11. I am all out of flipping tips!! I tried to make french toast one time and it was a disaster!!

  12. Black mango tea is my favorite! I am just about to brew myself a second cup :)

  13. [...] that breakfast is on your mind.  I was reminded last night that I made only one attempt at Two Ingredient Pancakes, and was due for a second [...]
