St. Patty’s Pancakes

What better way to begin St. Patrick’s Day celebrations than to make green pancakes!

I used my almond & oat flour pancake recipe and adjusted the wet ingredients so I could add…wait for it…

SPINACH! Yes, I went there. If there is any way I can add veggies to my meals, I go for it. Best part? You can’t even taste it, but you’re still benefiting from the vitamins, minerals, and fiber spinach has to offer.


St. Patty's Pancakes

  • Servings: 2 servings
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 cup spinach, fresh
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat skillet to ~300 degrees.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, add almond & oat flour, baking powder, salt and  cinnamon.
  3. In a blender, add almond milk and spinach and blend until all spinach is in liquid form.
  4. Pour almond milk & spinach into dry ingredients. Then add vanilla and unsweetened apple sauce.
  5. Mix well,  but leave a few lumps.
  6. Fold in dark chocolate chips.
  7. Spray skillet. Add 1/4 cup of batter onto skillet and cook ~3-5 minutes on each side. *Cook slowly to prevent burning on the outside and uncooked in the middle.
  8. Serve with your favorite toppings! My favs: berries, peanut butter, banana, and a splash of black berry syrup!

Happy Chewing!
