When I originally tried the 2 ingredient pancakes I wasn’t super excited. I think my expectations were set too high because the recipe said “pancakes.”
I decided to add some PB2 and vanilla to the recipe and I liked the pancakes much more! Plus the extra protein from the PB2 helped keep me full longer.
The good thing about these pancakes is they are very low in points. I made four pancakes and it was only 1 Freestyle point!
Some things I used for this recipe:

This is also an easy recipe to make. Those are my favorite! I actually made them one morning before work.
I’m not usually that ambitious before work, but I was out of the ingredients for my breakfast sandwich.
Personally, I think using a more ripe banana makes this taste better. It’s also easier to mash up the banana.
The PB2 powdered peanut butter has become one of my favorite ingredients to experiment with.
I can’t even tell a difference when I use it in recipes. Plus it’s great because it cuts out a lot of the fat.
These PB2 pancakes are similar to regular pancakes when you cook them. They will start to show little bubbles when it is time to flip.
I used a couple tablespoons of sugar free syrup which didn’t add any points. These PB2 pancakes are also great with a bowl of fresh fruit.
Yield: 4 pancakes is 1 Freestyle point
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
- Peel the banana and put it in a small mixing bowl. Mash it up.
- Add the egg and stir until it is completely mixed.
- In a small bowl, add the PB2 and water. Stir until it is smooth.
- Add the PB2 and vanilla to the banana mixture and stir together.
- Put a small frying pan over medium heat. Spray it with no-stick cooking spray. Add 1/4 cup of the batter. Flip the pancake once small bubbles start to form.
- Add your favorite toppings but be sure to calculate any extra points. I used sugar free syrup.
