Berry Green Pancakes

Breakfast, Pancakes, Recipes

These pancakes taste great, and are incredible for you! That’s a win win in my book. To top it off, these are also very easy to make. I mean, you just blend these ingredients in one blender, and pour it on the griddle, and you’re done! I use a cast iron for these because i love the crisp on the edges.

Also, these are IDEAL after a good workout because they have all the macros & tons of protein thanks to Hammer Whey Protein (the cleanest/ best protein there is)!

Recipe: Yields 1 serving of 6-7 mini pancakes

Ingredients

  • 4 cups spinach
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4  cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 scoop whey protein (I used Hammer Whey Vanilla)
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon

Directions

  • 1) Using my NutriBullet I pack the spinach to the max line, and I incorporate the egg whites, oats, whey, cinnamon (I usually go heavy on the cinnamon) and milk. (Note, that if you add a lot more spinach the pancakes will come out a little fluffier, and you might need to add the whey, and oats after a couple of blends just so everything doesn’t over fill on the first round)
  • 2) Blend all of the ingredients until completely smooth ( and this might take a bit- so be patient).
  • 3) Let the batter sit for 5-8 minutes (you can skip this part – i have, but they turn out fluffier when they sit at least five minutes).
  • 4) At medium-high heat grease the griddle with non-stick cooking spray, and pour about 1/4 cup of batter or until you reach the maximum capacity onto the griddle (about 6-7 mini pancakes).
  • 5) Wait for the pancakes to bubble up a little bit, and use your best judgement to flip over to the next side (you don’t want to burn them, and don’t want to flip too early). I usually wait till they bubble up, and with a spatula check the bottom of the first pancake to see if it’s okay to turn over (it’s okay if it’s a little brown on each side),
  • 6) When they’re done, transfer them onto a plate and i usually layer these with slices of a banana, and top them off with Trader Joe’s Flax Chia Peanut Butter, and blackberries with a sprinkle of cinnamon! Yum!
