Shamrock Pancakes

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?

Don't like spinach? Don't worry, this recipe masks the spinach flavor nicely.



  • 1 cup egg whites
  • 1 handful fresh spinach
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal
  • 2 teaspoons coconut sugar
  • Cinnamon to taste



1. Run the ingredients in your blender or food processor (if needed, add a bit more oatmeal until you get a batter consistency).

2. Cook in a coconut oiled skillet.

3. 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.
