Gluten-Free Banana Pancakes
“When one of my sons and I had to change to a gluten-free diet, I searched for recipes that tasted great. These pancakes are low-cal, as well. I cook extras and freeze them. Then, when I’m short on time, I toss a couple in the toaster. You’ll love the fluffy texture and the chocolate.” —Sharen Gustafson, South Lyon, Michigan
