These are my absolute FAVORITE recipe to make right now. Inspired by my Yogurt Pancakes and in effort to get my kids (and myself) to eat more veggies. Something that can be a struggle for most of us.

I love that these pancakes are great for kids and adults. You can’t taste the spinach in them (I promise) and they are easy to make. Just put all of the ingredients into a blender and cook on the skillet. Plus you can freeze them to heat and eat whenever you want. I love having mine with a little butter and syrup. My kid’s eat them plain or with some nut butter on top.

This is also a recipe I love to have them “help” make. Put the ingredients into the blender and help me cook them. I hope you and your family love them as much as we do!

What ingredients are in spinach pancakes:

  • Banana – the more ripe, the sweetener it’ll be. I like using something that are a little freckled so it blends well and adds sweetness.
  • Eggs – I haven’t used flax eggs here.
  • Fresh spinach – I haven’t tried frozen spinach but it may be too watery.
  • Gluten-free rolled oats – quick oats may work as well. You can also use some with gluten if you prefer!
  • Yogurt – I use the cashew yogurt from trader joe’s here but you can also use a dairy yogurt! My kids eat so many yogurt bowls and string cheese so I try to keep these dairy-free.

FAQs about making spinach pancakes:

  • Can you taste the spinach? No! Jord and I love these so much and I never can taste the spinach in them. The cinnamon and banana really mask it well and it’s not overpowering amount of greens.
  • Can you freeze these pancakes? Absolutely! You can make a large batch too and freeze them to keep on hand. That is what I usually do so we have them to snack on whenever. I usually put in microwave to warm up easily.
  • Can you add in mix-in’s? Totally. Feel free to add some blueberries, chocolate chips or anything you’d like. Cacao nibs are great to add for no sugar.

  1. My three year old loves these. I thought he was going to eat the whole batch by himself. More recipes like this please!!!

  2. Made these for our toddlers and they LOVED them! I did sub flax eggs due to an egg allergy, and they still turned out great! And, added a little PB powder to the batter, for our picky eaters!
