A lot of you have asked about three ingredient pancakes! In fact some of you have requested a tutorial so today I’m giving you guys the low down PLUS video.


This recipe is such a staple in my house that I ended up featuring it in my book, The Skinny Confidential: A Babe’s Sexy, Sassy Health & Lifestyle Guide.

I casually whip this gem up for Michael at least ( AT LEAST, AT LEAST ) once a week. And I’m totally guilty of making this for myself twice ( maybe three times? Ok four? ) a week for breakfast..& sometimes dinner?

These hot cakes are delish, low-carb, & filled with protein!!!

Lately I’ve also been adding ‘TSC berry syrup’ which is superrrrrrrr simple.

Basically I take my favorite berry ( raspberry, sometimes boysenberry, sometimes both (REBEL) ), mash it up with a fork, squeeze lemon in the ‘mash’, add a few ( a fewwww ) drop of real maple syrup, & mix it all together. It turns in to a syrup-y mixture that’s kind of like a little, amazing berry delight compote. The whole thing gets me all nostalgic because it totally reminds of the Knott’s Berry Farm boysenberry syrup I used to scarf down with buttermilk Eggo waffles circa 1994. Tsk-tsk, but #TBT.

Ok let’s get back to the pancakes because they are INSANE!

All about these pancakes because: Calories? 236!! Protein? 12.6 grams!!! Potassium? 540 mg!!

The Skinny Confidential’s Three Ingredient Hotcakes:

+ 2 eggs

+ 1 banana

+ 1 or 2 scoops of chia seeds

+ Directions: blend above ingredients together. Warm non stick pan to medium heat and add a little coconut oil to pan. Cook silver dollar size pancakes about 30 seconds on each side. Stack on a plate. I like to add cinnamon on top with TSC berry syrup. And as always I squeeze more lemon on top. Sorry guys, I’m just way too obsessed with lemon to live.

Here’s the tutorial for all you visual peeps:

Note: I make like 10 tiny pancakes out of the mix above— for one serving!! That’s right, only for moi! So filling, so good.

By the way, this is kind of the perfect recipe for kids, mamas.

Anyway if you’re looking for more recipes like this one, check out TSC Book!

And of course, I have to ask: what recipe tutorial do you guys want to see next?

  • Sweeeet!!!! This is my kind of no-brainer recipe, perfect for cooking impaired people like me! Less ingredients = way better. And much more wholefood than using oat flour or anything more processed. I’m gonna try!

  • Yummo! I love pancakes but especially ones that are guilt free! Thanks for the tip on the syrup too because there’s nothing worse than ruining a good pancake with nasty too-much-sugar on top :)

    Love the video! : )

  • Just made these and loved them! Healthy ingredients and fulfilled my pancake craving. And you’re right on the berry compote! I used blackberries and I didn’t even miss the syrup. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  • Katia

    Just made these for the first time this morning. Omg…pure ambrosia!!

  • Got this from your book and I made these using pumpkin instead of banana in the fall when I was craving a pumpkin flavored treat. It turned out really well! Had to add a little vanilla almond milk for consistency and I think it added a little sweetness. So good, thanks for the recipe! I love it.

  • These look delicious! I’m participating in a January Whole30 and am already getting so sick of eggs for breakfast everyday so this will definitely be on the menu this weekend!

  • Your videos are so rad! I know this is random, but it is something I would love to know, is how you organize your schedule as far as work. You seem to have a lot going on and continue adding amazing new projects onto your plate (i.e. your videos), so I would love to know how you do it all, as in see your schedule :p Or to-do list!

  • I’ve tried a variety of this recipe before, but these looking amazing!!!

  • Salad dressings!!!! and go to salads in a pinch! Also, unrelated to recipes but still involving the kitchen… I think you should do a post on kitchen essentials and things that you use on the regular! Include brands that you recommend and love for those that are “building their kitchen”. Keep up the great work!

  • I know what I’m having for dinner tonight!

  • Yum! These look delicious~ I bet the pancakes would be delicious with some peanut butter or coconut oil blended in too!

    I have had these before but without the chai seeds. What do they add flavor wise to the recipe along with nutritional benefits? I don’t know much about the seeds. Could flaxseed be substituted or would that taste weird.

  • i hunted these down on your blog a couple of months ago and i have to say they were absolutely delicious! i had a hard time not smothering them in peanut butter and chocolate chips though. i did add some cinnamon and chai spice for a twist. Maybe next time i will try to get them to look as good as they do in your pics! haha.

  • I never leave comments on blogs, but I have to say I tried these a few minutes ago and they were absolutely AMAZING! I was so surprised! These will be a stable for breakfast in my house from now on. Thank you for sharing <3

  • I made these yesterday morning and was amazed at how good and flavorful they were! I had fresh blueberries handy, so I made a yummy little blueberry syrup. So good, thanks for sharing!
    Tiffany recently posted..Happy New Year!My Profile

  • Oh my gosh I’m so glad I’ve seen this! I love pancakes with fruit and yoghurt but always wanted to make the actual pancake healthy. Need to try this out asap x

  • Ohhhh this looks so so good…! I need to make these!

  • I noticed when you use chia seeds you are usually scooping them out of a bowl, is that how you store them or do they need to be sealed in a bag?

    • Either works. I have them in a bowl in my kitchen for easy access.

  • great site!

  • Hi Lauryn! These look amazing!!! Like I’m going to make them tomorrow morning. Is the recipe for one person? :)
    Oh, and another question on a different note. I am going to my parents in law this weekend. How do I deal with all the food? I don’t want to be rude or anything but I don’t want to have to eat unhealthy either. I mean summer is only a few months away and I want to look good in my bikini. I just want to eat clean and healthy and go to the gym for an hour every day… What to do??

  • Ever since I saw this post the other week I have been craving pancakes, finally made them with blueberries the other day. SO yummy and the fact they’re healthier and gluten free. Love it.

    Lauryn you have to make Smashed Avocado. Literally the best breakfast on earth…

    • Yum! Trying this asap! x

  • these are DELICIOUS!! I made them this morning and could eat them every day, three times a day! I will say that I substituted the TSC syrup for almond butter and fresh berries. YUM YUM YUM! Thanks for sharing!

  • I absolutely love banana pancakes! I love how easy and tasty they are! I make them all the time. I like mine with berries and cashew butter!
