These pancakes are green and delicious and what’s also good, is the endless options you have for topping them. Warm syrup and honey, berries, fruits, nuts like pecans, and a sweet slaw all make for delicious toppings. Prep in 5 minutes and cook in 10. Here are the ingredients you’ll need to get going:
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- 1 ½ cups almond milk
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 banana
In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
Combine the spinach, banana and almond milk in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Add this blended mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Add additional almond milk if the batter seems too thick. Batter should pour easily.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan on low to medium heat. Pour the batter onto the hot griddle leaving room between pancakes. Cook until bubbles appear in center of the pancakes, then flip and continue cooking until golden brown. About 3 – 5 minutes each side. Serve with warm syrup, fresh berries or sweet apple slaw.
- 2 medium sized apples, grated or thinly sliced
- ½ cup pecans, chopped and toasted
- ¼ cup raisins
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- 2 tablespoons honey
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Serve with pancakes and warm syrup, sit back and enjoy. Sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon if desired.
Spinach is in it!
