Sometimes I just want to eat a stack of pancakes, and I want them to be healthy enough that I can eat the stack without feeling super guilty/like a blob. These delicious gluten-free, optionally vegan pancakes do the trick! —Erika

In This Recipe
Preheat a large skillet over medium heat for 2-3 minutes while you make the batter.
Whisk together the flours, flax seed, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the yogurt, milk, maple syrup, vanilla and oil, if using. Mix until smooth (there is no gluten in this batter, so no worries about over-mixing and creating tough pancakes). Batter should be thick, but if you like thinner pancakes, add an additional tablespoon or two of milk. Fold in sliced bananas.
Nudge a few drops of oil around a large frying pan with a spatula to grease the pan. Let heat for a minute, then add batter, ¼ cup at a time (batter should sizzle when it hits the pan). Cook for about 2 minutes on each side (the first pancakes will take the longest to cook) and serve warm, with lots of maple syrup, additional bananas, nuts, chocolate chips, etc.
