I’m keeping this spinach train moving with some pancakes. Putting spinach into pancakes is one of those things that I’ve never tried before but I’m happy I did. I used this pancake recipe (link here). This was definitely a breakfast that hulk or shrek would eat because they were so green. These would actually be perfect pancakes for st patrick’s day too 😛
This was a super fast batter to make because you throw everything (except flour) into your blender then just stir in the flour after, by hand. I scooped batter by 1/4 cup fulls and got 15 pancakes in total. The batter looked very green but after the pancakes were cooked, they got darker in colour.
These pancakes were great for breakfast because they were super healthy with the spinach, flax and whole wheat flour. You can’t even taste any of those things, but they add so much fibre and other vitamins and minerals. If you want to feed your kids more vegetables, you should make these pancakes because there’s no way they would be able to tell that there is spinach. You can say it’s just green food colouring 😉
If I was eating these pancakes blindfolded, I probably wouldn’t be able to tell there was spinach (or even banana) in there. I like when the banana flavour is super present in my pancakes so I would probably add more banana next time to this recipe. Also, the plain cooked pancakes weren’t super sweet but once you put yogurt/fruit/maple syrup it’s good to go.
I love making pancakes. They can be sweet or savoury and they can be served for any meal of the day. You can check out all my other pancake posts if you click here 🙂
