Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats uncooked. If gluten free is important, make sure the oats are certified gluten free.
  • 2 tsp baking powder aluminum free suggested
  • 1/4 tsp fine salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana sub unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil or avocado oil plus more for cooking
  • 1-2 handfuls baby spinach depending on how green you want them

Instructions

  • Add oats, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon to a high-speed blender. Blend until oats become a fine powder. Pour into a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Combine spinach, banana, milk, oil, eggs, and syrup/honey in the blender. Blend until mixture is very smooth and well pureed.
  • Pour oat mixture into the blender. Blend until well combined and batter is smooth. If you do not have a high-speed blender, see above for tips.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and add a little oil. Once hot, portion out the pancake batter into the pan.
  • Cook until you see small bubbled forming on the top of the pancake and the edges seem dry, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook the other side for another 2 minutes. Place cooked pancakes onto a plate and continue with the remaining batter.
  • Enjoy warm with topping of choice. Let cook completely before storing leftovers in an air-tight container in fridge for 4-5 days or in freezer
