If you made a resolution to eat more fruits or vegetables, this is the perfect recipe for you. Personally, I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. I refuse to wait until the start of a year to eat better or keep my house cleaner. If something needs to change, waiting only makes me want to wait longer. The sooner you commit to a change, the sooner you’ll see the benefits of those changes, right?
This isn’t the first time I’ve put spinach into pancakes. I made green pancakes on St Patrick’s day last year, and I’m sorry I’ve kept them from you for so long. They’re even better with the berries! The berries add a great sweetness that covers the spinach flavor perfectly. If you use mixed berries like I did here, the batter will be a weird grey/purple color but will cook into more of a blue/green. I bet if you used just blueberries, you could entirely hide the presence of spinach from unsuspecting children, boyfriends/husbands, or any other veggie haters.
Every time I post about chia seed pancakes, I freak out about how delicious they are. If you haven’t made them yet, how else can I convince you? The chia seeds replace eggs in the batter and make for a great, fluffy pancake. Check out my other recipes, too.
