  • 1 cup flour
  • cup powdered milk + 1 cup water or 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 banana sliced into 1/4" inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 6 teaspoons ghee or butter


  • maple syrup, jam, butter or creamed honey (we love the Trader Joe's version!)


  • Combine the flour, powdered milk, baking powder, and salt in a bowl (this can be done at home ahead of time and stored in a resealable bag or container). Add the water and egg to the dry ingredients. Using a fork, whisk the ingredients to combine, making sure to not over mix (some small lumps in the batter are OK),
  • Heat a skillet over your campfire or camp stove over medium low heat. Add a teaspoon of ghee to the skillet and swirl to coat the pan. Pour ⅓ cup of the pancake batter into the center of the skillet and scatter some of the banana slices and blueberries on top. and cook for a few minutes until the top begins to bubble and the sides are set (about 2-3 minutes). Using a spatula, flip the pancake and cook the other side until golden.
  • Repeat with the rest of the batter, adding 1 teaspoon ghee into the pan for each pancake as needed.
  • To serve, stack the pancakes and top with maple syrup, jam, butter, or honey. Enjoy!
