  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free pancake mix (e.g., Bob's Red Mill, LiveGFree, Pamela's, etc.)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons oil (coconut, avocado, olive, or vegetable)
  • 2 medium bananas
  • 1 small (3.4 ounce) box vanilla or banana instant pudding
  • 1 1/2 cup milk or nondairy milk


1. Grease a medium nonstick pan with cooking spray and warm over medium-low heat.

2. In a large bowl, mash 1 banana. Add pancake mix, pudding mix, milk, and then the egg and oil. Whisk until combined. 

3. Add 1/4 cup batter to the pan and cook until golden and edges bubble — about 2 minutes per side. Working in batches, repeat with the remaining batter. 

4. Slice the second banana. Top on pancakes with your choice of syrup. Enjoy!
