Green Pancakes

What would St. Patrick's Day be if I didn't make Green Pancakes?!

St Patrick’s Day is next week so I thought I would fire off a fail proof and FUN pancake recipe that would be perfect for the festivities. I have Irish roots but the only thing green I’ll be eating or drinking are these pancakes and a steaming vegan matcha latte. Even when I was drinking I still never drank green beer and never saw the allure of standing in a ridiculous line up to get into a pub (even though I did, many many times).

There are many ways to turn your pancakes green. One being spinach. I will admit I have never tried spinach pancakes (I must rectify that) but they do look delicious. You could add matcha powder, green protein powder, chlorella powder, food colouring or my personal fave spirulina powder.

Spirulina is a green-blue algae that is known to have many powerful health benefits. It is high in antioxidants and has been known to reverse the aging process. I think we would have to eat a whole lot of it to see that happen but I am open to trying hahaha!

I sifted my dry ingredients to see if that would help me achieve light and fluffy pancakes. I am so pleased to announce, it DID.

Let’s get making these pancakes!
