In preparation for Saint Patrick’s Day tomorrow here’s a great way to start your day off green and also sneak in a few veggies to the kiddos. My son went to town on these pancakes! Hubby saw they where green and said they taste different, knowing that I did something to them. I thought they where actually really good, I would probably add a mashed banana next time to give it a little more sweetness to my liking. Can’t wait to make these again! If you want I would suggest making a larger batch and freezing them so you can use up more of the spinach unless you have another use for the leftover spinach. The recipe made 7 larger pancakes, but if you make them smaller you can get more out of them.
