Spinach Pancakes

You could say one of my favourite things to do is experiment in the kitchen – especially with pancakes. I have so many different pancake recipes now, I have a hard time choosing which one I want to make in the morning. But oops, I did it again. I created yet another pancake recipe. And like the sweet potato pancakes, these ones contain a vegetable as well; a leafy green.

IMG_9672Spinach is awesome. Spinach is one of the best super foods for your body. It contains almost every single vitamin and nutrient you need, and gives you so much energy for your day. So when I thought about making pancakes, I thought, what better way to make healthy pancakes than with none other than the world’s best super food – SPINACH!

IMG_9634Spinach pancakes everybody. Take it all in. I know what most people are thinking – mostly because my brother was one of those people. “Ew, spinach in pancakes? That’s disgusting” or “Pancakes …. why are they green!?”

Well fear not my friends, I assure you that you can’t even taste the spinach. I use spinach all the time in my smoothies, and it doesn’t have a distinct or gross flavour. It just adds colour – and a ton of vitamins and nutrients. So don’t let these pancakes scare you – they’re awesome.

    Awesome!! However I don’t have coconut sugar in my house – is there anything that can be substituted for it? 🙂

      Maybe brown sugar or cane sugar? 🙂 Or even sweeteners such as stevia, honey, pure maple syrup, etc! Just google natural sweeteners for more info!
