Luckily, these 5 ingredient pancakes are so easy that you don’t need to wait for the weekend. You can make them on a Monday or a Thursday because all you have to do is throw your simple ingredients into a small bow, mix, and fry them up! Voila! Let’s make pancakes during the week a thing!

We love these pancakes because if you use the ingredients listed below, these pancakes can be made totally gluten free and perfect for many diets. They don’t require any other flour besides coconut flour, so no need to worry.

Easy Pancake Cereal ingredients

  • Coconut Flour – we use a small amount of coconut flour in this recipe to bind the ingredients in this recipe

  • Banana – two ripe bananas helps give these pancakes a deliciously naturally sweet flavor and also helps to bind them together

  • Egg – two eggs help hold all of the ingredients together and give the pancakes a fluffy texture

  • Coconut Sugar – just 1/4 cup to give these pancakes a little more sweetness

  • Baking Powder – our leavening agent, we love to use baking powder to give these lil cakes that extra lift and extra fluffiness

  • OPTIONAL Cinnamon – optional spices and flavor for a special touch. I always add cinnamon to my pancakes because I love the taste! I didn’t in this recipe, but cinnamon would be the perfect little addition

Tools needed to make Pancake Cereal

Pancake cereal is actually super easy to make! It looks complicated, but requires very few tools. All you need to make this recipe is a small bowl, a fork, a ziploc bag, and a large pan. The ziploc bag is actually optional, but I used it to make the pancake process a lot easier.

How to make Pancake Cereal

Start by mashing your two ripe bananas in a small bowl. I used a fork to mash these super well. Be sure to break apart any large banana chunks.

Add in the eggs and mix well to create a smooth wet mixture.

To your wet batter, add in the baking powder, coconut sugar, and coconut flour and mix super well. You can also add your cinnamon here if you want it for extra flavor.

Heat up your large pan with a little avo oil on a light heat. Once the the pan is evenly warmed up, pour the pancake batter into a ziploc bag and cut the corner a little to create a small funnel bag for your batter. This is optional, you can use a spoon for the batter, but I found that this speeds up the process and makes more even sized pancake cereal bites.

Cook these pancakes on a light heat. Once you see bubbles form and pop on one side, gently flip them using a fork. These won’t turn out perfect, but be patient and trust the process. You can also make normal sized pancakes if that’s easier for you!

Enjoy! You can eat them plain, add a little almond milk, or even almond butter for the perfect breakfast.

Can you make pancake cereal vegan?

I haven’t personally tested these pancakes with a vegan egg replacement like a flax egg or chia egg, but I would suggest trying to use a flax egg, you need two! I like to combine 1 tbsp ground flax meal with 2.5 tbsp of water and let it sit for 15 minutes before adding to my batter. This will mess with the texture of your batter, but worth a shot right?
