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. I guarantee there will be more to come! 🙂

So as I was saying. 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?

To prepare these easy pancakes, toss all your ingredients into a high powered blender. I use my Vitamix. Then process until smooth, and heat your non stick griddle until very hot. Pour the batter directly from your blender spout to cook your pancakes.

Cook them for about 4-5 minutes on the first side. You will see several bubbles form. Then flip them and cook the other side until golden brown, about 3-5 more minutes.

Enjoy these scrumptious pancakes with fresh fruit and maple syrup. Or you may even enjoy plain! They’re that good! 🙂

      Hi Malini, since unsweetened plant milk is mostly water, the composition should be fine. I didn’t try with water but I think it should work. I’d love to hear how they turn out if you give it a go that way. 🙂

    I love the idea of sneaking in a few extra veggies wherever I can. I have to give this a try, especially for St. Patrick’s Day – maybe that way I can convince my little guy that the green is just for the holiday! 🙂 Mom win for sure!
