Green Protein Pancakes

Confession: I just made a batch of chocolate chip peanut butter cookies for the kiddos/hubby and I ate a considerable glob of the batter. Ugh. I am a slave to the sugar demon.


Anyways, I the recipe I have for you today will definitely quell that sugar demon that can attack when you have a sugary breakfast. This often happens to me when I have something like pancakes or waffles for breakfast (which is typically weekends). I don’t know if it’s because I’m in the house all day or what but I end up being hungry alllll day. These filling pancakes have protein and greens so you can have your (pan) cakes and eat it too! Don’t worry about the spinach- the taste ends up being mild. If you’re worried about the taste just add more sweetener to the batter. But I didn’t add any and I just drizzled honey on top. It had a slight spinach taste that I didn’t mind. But if you do, add more honey in the batter! Two tablespoons should do it.

Here they are!

    Now that is what I call being creative. I could never have thought of incorporating the greens into my pancakes. They look so fluffy and delicious. A great way to make my kiddos eat their veggies without even knowing it.

      I used Tera’s Organic Grass Fed Whey Protein. It’s alright. My stomach’s always kinda iffy with protein powders but I just tolerate it. I hope to find one that doesn’t bother me at all sometime!
