I LOVE breakfast food! Whenever I’m craving something yummy, it’s always breakfast food. Unfortunately, typical breakfast foods contain a LOT of gluten and a LOT of dairy. They also contain way more sugar than we should be eating in a day, let alone 1 meal!
One of my favorite breakfast foods is pancakes however, typical pancakes contain gluten, dairy, and added refined sugar…definitely not the best way to start your day!
A lot of gluten free pancake recipes I’ve found and tried either required a lot of ingredients that I didn’t have in my kitchen, so I’d have to make a special grocery trip, or they just didn’t taste very good.
One day, I had some really ripe bananas that I didn’t want to waste, so I threw this recipe together and it worked out! Now whenever I have extra ripe bananas, I make these pancakes and store them in the fridge. They’re great for breakfast or a sweet, healthy snack!
Also, I’m a crazy dog mom and I love sharing food with my Miss Cammie whenever I can. These pancakes are dog friendly too! Miss Cammie gets so excited for her pancakes!
So without further ado, here is the recipe!

1 Ripe Banana
⅔ Cup Gluten Free Oat Flour (if you don’t have oat flour, you can make some by putting oats in the blender to form a flour)
1 tsp Baking Powder
Combine ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl then cook in a skillet just like you would any other pancake!
One tip I have is to cook it a little longer than you would think on the first side. Because there is no egg or gluten, the batter does pull apart easier which makes them a little difficult to flip. If you cook it a little longer, it’s MUCH easier to flip! Just don’t burn it!
Sometimes I like to add blueberries! If you add blueberries, chocolate ships, or anything of the like, don’t add it into the batter. When the pancake has cooked for a little bit on the first side, sprinkle them on top before flipping!
Let me know if you give these a try!
