3-Ingredient Banana Icebox Cake

It's hard to believe a three-ingredient cake could be possible, let alone such a hit, until you try this one for yourself. Simply spread fresh whipped cream on the bottom of a cake pan lined with plastic wrap, then add a layer of sliced bananas and another layer of everyone's favorite childhood snack: animal crackers. Repeat the layers a second time, refrigerate overnight and serve.

3-Ingredient Gluten-Free Banana Pancakes

Next time the kids wake up asking for pancakes, try this easy, gluten-free option. The batter comes together with the help of just two eggs, a banana and some pumpkin pie spice. The recipe requires half the work of regular pancakes, with 10 times the flavor (plus an added nutritional boost, thanks to the bananas).

Break out the blender for this easy, creamy pudding recipe. Chocolate almond milk lends the pudding its rich flavor, and the banana gives it the perfect texture. Can you guess the third ingredient? One hint: It's a fiber- and protein-packed seed.
