Green Vegan Pancakes

Green Vegan Pancakes | The Mother Cooker

Spinach isn’t just for savoury dishes, you can add it to sweet ones too. Step in these green vegan pancakes. A great way to sneak veg in for the kids, you can pretend they are dinosaur pancakes. They also taste great, so it’s a win win. I’ve added a banana to my usual vegan pancake recipe. This adds another layer of sweetness and distracts from the spinach taste. You could pile them in a bowl like this recipe, add in yoghurt and fruit. Even some nuts and seeds for added nutrition.

I love having these with raspberries, yoghurt, nut butter, seeds and maple syrup. A really healthy, delicious breakfast. A superfood start to your day if you will. Another thing to tell the kids 😉 Since quarantine has been set, I’ve indulged in pancakes a lot more often. Such a leisurely start to the day. I’ll be honest though, I sometimes eat them for dinner too. I love savoury pancakes; poached egg, bacon, hollandaise, asparagus? Count me in! Made these? Let me know what you think over on Instagram.
