Ingredients

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats (use gluten-free oats if needed)
  • 1 cup spinach, packed
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 egg or flax egg
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice - regular, coconut, almond, hemp, etc
  • 2 tablespoon oil - coconut or olive
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • In a blender, place the oats and pulse on medium speed for 30 seconds or until oats are a chunky flour consistency. You will blend them all the way up in the next step, so the oats don’t have to be perfectly even right now.
  • Add in the spinach, banana, egg, milk, oil, cinnamon and vanilla extract and blend on high for 30-60 seconds or until batter is completely smooth and the spinach is completely broken down, scraping down the sides of the blender if needed.
  • Add in the baking powder and salt and blend on low for 20 seconds.
  • Heat a non-stick pan or pancake griddle over medium to medium-low heat. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until tiny bubbles appear on the outside of the pancake. Flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes. If batter gets too thick, add in a tablespoon at a time of milk and re-blend until you have the right consistency.
  • Transfer pancakes to a cooling rack and repeat the process until you have used all of the batter.
