This recipe for Green Smoothie Pancakes has all the healthy ingredients from your favorite smoothie in pancake form so you can prep them ahead of time and reheating for breakfast during the week!
It’s time for another month of Recipe Redux! This month the theme was breakfast – my favorite meal of the day!
Break Out of Breakfast Boredom
Cooks aren’t always pressed for time in the mornings – they just need new ideas. Think mug cakes, smoothie bowls, breakfast cookies and more. Show us the healthy way you wake up your breakfast – or wake up just for breakfast!
While I’m fairly happy eating the same thing for breakfast every day, I’m doing my best to expose Squish to a variety of new foods so I’m always looking for new breakfast ideas for him.
I like simple recipes that are packed with nutritious ingredients and I especially like breakfasts that can be prepped ahead of time so I can get breakfast ready quickly in the morning.
These Green Smoothie Pancakes fit the bill. We’ve been enjoying them for breakfast AND lunch. I actually like them even better the second day and even sometimes prefer them cold, straight out of the fridge! Squish likes them smothered with peanut butter.
Here’s how you make them:
These pancakes are packed with healthy green ingredients like spinach and kiwis, plus hemp hearts, nut butter and greek yogurt for added protein and healthy fats! We’ve been loving smoothies as a snack lately, but I just can never seem to get into them for breakfast. I think I just like chewing my breakfast. Green Smoothie Pancakes are the perfect compromise! All the delicious smoothie ingredients in a form you can eat with a fork!
Plus the green color makes them fun to eat and all the flavors covering the spinach makes them kid-friendly! One thing I did notice is that if you eat them hot straight out of the pan, you can taste the spinach a little more than when you let them cool down a bit or eat them cold!
