Bananas are kind of a chameleon ingredient. You can use them for many different parts of a recipe. They can add sweetness, act like eggs as a binder, or even replace flour. So, it’s easy to see why they are the featured ingredient in so many foods. In particular, they are perfect for breakfast foods like pancakes and muffins.


If you have a blender, you can make some delicious muffins out of just muffins, almond butter, and your choice of mix-in. Just throw three bananas and half a cup of nut butter into a blender, then add the mix-in and bake for half an hour … and voila!


For a great 2-ingredient pancake just whisk one mashed banana and two eggs into a kind of custard and fry in small circles. You can also sift in a bit of flour to make them a little more pancake-y. They taste great with maple syrup or peanut butter and jam on top.

Oat bars

You can combine four cups of rolled oats, two cups of mashed bananas, and a cup of any nut butter for some yummy banana oatmeal bars. Bake the batter until the bars are firm. You can mix in some chocolate chips, nuts, seeds, or whatever you like to add a little something extra to your breakfast.
