Healthier Green Pancakes

“Good health and good sense are two of life’s greatest blessings.”

-Publilius Syrus

Hello my lovelies!

I am bringing you my first ever recipe to the blog! Hopefully you’re all equally as excited as I am, especially since this is a great and far healthier take on a classic breakfast staple.

Generally, I’m not a huge fan of pancakes. They’re very doughy and dense yet also pretty dry in my opinion. While being gluten free means I mostly avoid pancakes in restaurants, I’ve recently discovered my love for pancakes with an oatmeal base. Oatmeal pancakes manage to stay far more moist and filling than traditional pancakes, and I’m officially hooked.

Going forward, all of my recipes that I share will be gluten free, but this one is also 100% vegan! I will also list the nutrition stats down below if any of you like to track your calorie intake or track your macros like I do. Please let me know what you think of these cakes if you try them!

Let’s Get Started:


What you’ll need (makes 7 pancakes):

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter or other nut butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats (I like Bob’s Red Mill)

Preparation:

  • combine all ingredients into a blender. I like to use my large blender attachment for the Ninja Bullet.
  • Blend completely into a consistently similar to a traditional pancake batter.
  • Place a large griddle pan across two stove burners. A regular frying pan will also work, but you’ll cook less pancakes in one go.
  • Spray the griddle or pan with a cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  • Using a 1/4 cup scoop, ladle the batter onto the griddle or pan.
  • Wait for the batter to begin bubbling slightly before flipping, or you will have major difficulties.
  • Flip and allow to cook evenly on both sides.
  • Serve with toppings of your choice and enjoy!
