Kid Tested Spinach Pancakes Recipe
The boys were begging for pancakes, but I wanted them to get some veg for breakfast. So I thought, why can’t I just blend spinach into the pancake batter? And it totally worked!
I used a box of organic pancake mix, but any recipe will work.
For 2 cups of pancake mix, I added one heaping handful of baby spinach.
1 cup of pancake mix in the blender with milk, softened coconut oil, and the spinach.
After blending, pour it into a large mixing bowl, add the rest of the pancake mix and any eggs. The spinach seemed to thicken it up a bit, so i added more milk to help get the consistency I wanted. Mix with hand mixer or fork to combine all ingredients. Cook as usual.
Serve as usual.
We couldn’t taste the spinach at all. I think it’s safe to use more next time, without affecting flavor.
