From the title, I’m sure you’re thinking, “GROSS. What in the heck?! SPINACH + PANCAKES?! Who in their right mind would do that?!” haha, well this girl did. Because this food blogger did first. And the recipe so appealed to me that I made these pancakes. YUM.
I tricked you though- the pancakes aren’t just made with spinach. There’s a banana or two thrown in there. And trust me, it masks the taste of the spinach. Even my brother and his friend approved. Trust me… these pancakes are delicious! And they’re healthy! WIN WIN!
This post is going to be short and sweet and leave you wanting to go make these pancakes right away. So without further adieu (I like saying that), here’s the recipe I used when making spinach pancakes for the first time.
SPINACH + BANANA PANCAKES
a handful of baby spinach
1 – 1 1/2 bananas
1 cup whole wheat flour
In a blender, blend the eggs and spinach together. Then, add the banana.
Once everything is well blended, pour it into a bowl. Add the flour.
Stir until it’s thickened up.
Warm up your skillet and add a spoonful or so of the coconut oil.
Start dolloping your batter onto the skillet!
It took my pancakes about 5 mins, flipping them over halfway. My skillet was turned to 350 degrees F.
They turned out delicious and there was even batter for me to use a second day! I ended up adding some chocolate chips to a few pancakes, and sunflower seeds to a few others to change it up. The extra sweetness of chocolate was a great addition, and the seeds complimented the banana/spinach flavor perfectly!
If you are health food lover, spinach lover, banana lover, or want to try something new- TRY THIS RECIPE!
You won’t regret it!
And if you do, just bring me your pancakes! 😉
