When you’re trying to live a healthy lifestyle, that does not mean you can’t still enjoy the finer things in life! Like pancakes! A life without pancakes is a super sad one. I love pancakes, and so do my entire family. Needless to say, we make pancakes often! You may have noticed from the variety of pancake recipes I’ve shared so far. 🙂
What makes these pancakes healthy?
How to include pancakes into a well balanced, healthy lifestyle? EASY! Just add some veggies and use natural sweeteners. In this case, very ripe banana and a touch of maple syrup. Hello beautiful banana spinach pancakes! These pancakes are free from refined sugar, making them a healthier choice that you can feel good about. Now you can have your pancakes and eat them too! That’s a saying right?
How do you make banana spinach pancakes?
To prepare these easy pancakes, toss all your ingredients into a high powered blender. I use my Vitamix. Process until smooth, and heat your non stick griddle until very hot. Pour the batter directly from your blender spout to cook your pancakes. Super simple, and very few tools required!
Cook your pancakes for about 4-5 minutes on the first side. You will see several bubbles form, indicating it’s ready for flipping. Then flip them and cook the other side until golden brown, about 3-5 more minutes.
Enjoy these scrumptious pancakes with fresh fruit, chopped nuts, or maple syrup. Or you may even enjoy plain! They’re that good! 🙂
