Lately I have been a bit obsessed with morning pancakes. Mostly it’s these Banana Pancakes, Pumpkin Pancakes, or Overnight Oat Pancakes; but this weekend I added a new healthy pancake to the rotation and they are made of spinach! Eeek! Before you go running for the hills, consider giving these simple pancakes a try. Much like a smoothie quickly hides the taste of spinach, the same happens here. The spinach flavor takes a backseat and you just get a nice, slightly sweet pancake. Want to cover it up even more? Add a banana and you won’t be able to taste the spinach at all. I like mine topped with a touch of apple butter and a drizzle of honey. Filling and delicious.
