Fluffy, Moist Green Pistachio Pudding Pancakes with full pistachio pudding flavor make a great breakfast idea for St. Patrick’s Day or any day you want something a little different.

Green Pistachio Pudding Pancakes
For some reason, when holiday time rolls around, any holiday, we tend to enjoy playing with our food. I mean playing with food can be fun. I guess maybe ‘playing with food’ isn’t quite right – but rather, play with how we make it.

So yesterday morning in honor of St. Patrick’s Day we decided to make green pancakes, but we wanted to take the a step further and we went with Green Pistachio Pudding Pancakes. They were so good!! In fact, the Green Pistachio Pudding Pancakes were SO good we decided we had to share them on the blog.

The problem was, we weren’t planning to put these on the blog, because they were really a bit of an experiment. But they turned out so good, we had to share. We only got two photos before they were literally consumed.

Hungry teenagers plus really tasty pancakes, equals not a lot of photo opportunity before something is quickly gone. We WILL be making these Green Pistachio Pudding Pancakes much more frequently now though. Probably without the dye when it isn’t holiday time.

Servings 4 servings


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1.5 ounces of pistachio pudding mix and pie filling
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 2 drops green food coloring
  • chopped nuts if desired


  • Heat your griddle.
  • Mix all of the dry ingredients in one bowl. In another bowl, combine the eggs and melted butter. Add the milk. Drop in food coloring.
  • Combine the two bowls, stirring until combined.
  • We used a ¼ cup measuring cup to scoop out the batter for the pancakes so we wound up with fairly nice sized pancakes. Drop the pancake batter onto the griddle and cook until both sides are golden. Serve with whipped cream and/or syrup. Yum!!

Hi, any idea how you might make this into a waffle recipe instead?

Hi Elise, I am not really sure how to do that with this recipe to be honest. I know that this recipe would be too "sticky" to use in a waffle iron, I'd imagine. This article has some ideas you could try (look at the second to last comment - it has some conversions in there that might help). Good luck!!

Has anyone tried the recipe? 2 1/2 TBSP of baking powder seems like a lot. Is there a chance it’s a typo and it’s supposed to be tsp.?

Hey Candace, thank you so much for catching that. I just imported all my recipes over into a new recipe format and I typically catch these problems. It is supposed to be teaspoons and not tablespoons. Old format had it written T instead of t and for some reason as some of these are coming over its transferring incorrectly. I usually catch it but I missed this one. I also usually only use 2 teaspoons... so I omitted the other half in the recipe. Enjoy! We make these all year and just leave the green dye out lol

What’s 1.5 oz half package of the pudding mix? Does that mean half of 1.5? So use .75 of the package?

I updated how the recipe reads. Unfortunately awhile back, I changed recipe plugins to make it easier for my readers to print recipes and while converting, some of the words didn't stick - it was supposed to read 1.5 ounces or one half package of pudding mix.

Thank you for noticing and asking!! xxx

Stacie, they are super yummy! Obviously you can make them anytime and forgo the green food coloring ;)
