St. Patrick's Day calls for green everything and just like any mom, I like to make a fun treat for my girls on such occasions.
These pancakes get their green the all-natural way.
Here's how I do it without the green dye. Brace yourself. I replace the dye with fresh spinach. Seems like a the best swap ever, right?
1 cup egg whites
1 handful fresh spinach
1 tablespoon almond butter
1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal
2 tsp coconut sugar
Cinnamon to taste
Run the ingredients in your blender or food processor (if needed, add a bit more oatmeal until you get a batter consistency)
Cook in a coconut oiled skillet.
For even more fun, top them with coconut whipped cream.
Don't let all this fun fool you, these are some seriously good grown-up pancakes! Top them with some plain Greek yogurt and fruit (kiwi if you're going all green) for a tasty, filling breakfast.
