SPDHappy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! For our clan that means waking up to some favorite green treats, a note from the Leprechaun, green milk and lots of cousin’s over for green pancakes and smoothies. We had a great time this morning and wanted to share these healthy St. Patrick’s Day recipes with you. They’d make a great after school snack or even simpler dinner! Hope you enjoy 🙂

healthy green pancakes

Healthy St. Patrick's Day Pancakes
Ingredients
  1. 2 cups milk
  2. 1 cup frozen or fresh spinach
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 4 Tbs. canola oil or melted butter
  5. 2 Tbs. sugar
  6. 2 tsp. baking powder
  7. 2 cups flour (can use whole wheat flour)
  8. 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  9. 3/4 tsp. salt
  10. 1 green apple, core removed and diced small
If you don’t have Buy Me a Pie! app installed you’ll see the list with ingredients right after downloading it
Instructions
  1. In a large blender, blend together the milk and spinach until completely smooth (and green). If you are using a Blendtec blender you can add the remaining ingredients (except the apple) and mix on the 'batter' setting. If you don't have a large blender, just pour the milk/spinach mixture into a mixing bowl. Whisk in the rest of the ingredients until smooth. Remove the core from the apple and then dice into small pieces. Add the apples to the pancake and mix.
  2. Heat a griddle to medium heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place a spoonful of batter onto the griddle and cook until bubbles in the pancake pop. Flip the pancake over and cook on the other side until cooked through. Serve with regular syrup or butter syrup.
