Green Pancakes 

I remember coming across this recipe a while ago on YemSmoothies instagram (check her page out for plenty of vegan and smoothie recipes) and thought that I should give this a try. This is such a great way of incorporating a vegetable in your pancakes that tastes delicious and is healthier than your typical American pancakes.

Green pancakes are now my go to breakfast, especially when I don’t feel like having eggs in the morning. This is such a simple recipe and I think it’s also a perfect brunch to fuel your body for most of the day.

Yields 3-4 pancakes | Cooking time: Approx. 10 minutes 


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 4 tbsp Honey
  • 8 tbsp whole rain Rolled Oats
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • handful of spinach
  • 60 ml almond milk
  • 1 tsp coconut oil for the pan
  • 2 tbsp stevia (optional)


  • Apart from the coconut oil, place all ingredients in a blender and blend. * Stevia is optional to add if you would like your pancakes to be more sweeter. 
  • To ensure your pancake mixture has a thick consistency, add more oats if needed. * If your mixture is too soggy, your pancake will unlikely hold together.

  • Grease a non-stick pan with coconut oil or any oil of your choice.
  • Heat your pan to medium heat, pour mixture evenly on the pan and flip the pancakes onto the other side once it’s brown & cooked. * Tip: When the pancakes start bubbling a bit, this will be a another indication to start flipping.

  • Serve with any fruit and sauce of choice.

I garnished mine with honey, cinnamon and strawberries.
