No need to worry about the color- these green smoothie pancakes have the loveliest sweet flavor and you won’t even taste the spinach!

I personally think green pancakes are pretty and I like my food to be colorful. However, if you’re like my kiddos, anything green regarding food is scary. Don’t worry, though- these green flapjacks have the loveliest sweet flavor and you won’t even taste the spinach. So yummy, there’s no butter or maple syrup needed, but no judgment for adding a spoonful of almond butter!

No need to worry about the color- these green smoothie flapjacks have the loveliest sweet flavor and you won’t even taste the spinach!
Ingredients
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon peanut or almond butter
  • 1 small ripe banana
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup any variety of pancake mix* I like Kodiak Cake FlapJack Mix
Instructions
  1. Heat large skillet or griddle over medium heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine all the ingredients except the pancake mix into the pitcher of a blender. Blend on high speed until ingredients are smooth. On low speed, blend in pancake mix.
  3. Pour batter into medium circles. When the pancakes start bubbling a bit and the bottom is lightly browned (about 5 minutes), flip them over and continue cooking for about a minute on the other side. Serve warm with syrup and fresh fruit- ENJOY!
Recipe Notes

I like Kodiak Cakes Flapjack mix best! Alternatively, 1 cup of whole wheat, whole pastry or whole grain spelt flour can be used along with 1 tablespoon baking powder.

Something to think about….

Do you have a favorite pancake variety?

Have you ever tried adding greens to your pancakes? You’d be surprised how tasteless spinach is. I always add about a handful of very finely chopped spinach to my two ingredient pancakes.

I use a Cuisinart Griddler for cooking pancakes and for so much more! One of my favorite small cooking appliances!
