These Green Banana Pancakes make the ultimate St. Patrick’s Day pancake recipe that is secretly healthy!ย No one will guess the secret healthy ingredient!

In my world, there is nothing abnormal about offering coconut palm sugar to my guests for their coffee.

In my world, oatmeal is consumed faster than a growing toddler.

In my world, pancakes are made miniature and called “silver dollar” because my Mom is no longer around to flip the normal sized ones.

In my world, pancakes are made pantsless while dancing to “Drunk in Love”.

In my world, grocery buggies have names (have you met Petunia?)

In my world, half a dozen bananas can be found in a paper bag in the oven in an attempt to make them ripen faster.

In my world, adding spinach to your pancakes is totally totally normal.

  1. I think you’ve seriously created an addiction!!! I made these for lunch and they are absolutely delicious. The problem was trying to keep myself from eating more than one serving. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. I too have put spinach in pancakes and offered guest coconut sugar. But I feel vindicated when I get texts later from people asking. “what was that healthy sugr you offered me and where can i buy it?” and “what else can i add spinach too?” WIN!

  3. Genius idea making these pancakes super green – of course, spinach since the ingredient doesnโ€™t have a lot of flavors! I want to make some vegan spinach-based sweet pancakes someday, thanks for the suggestion!

  4. Hmm, what a cool way to hide vegetables in kid’s favourite foods….

    You just gave me an idea! Thank you!

  5. Your world sounds great !!! In my world I love large pancakes with chocolate chips ๐Ÿ™‚ I have never made them with spinach though !! I really need to get on the bandwagon and try them, yours look so good !!!

  6. I like your world. It sounds like a blast especially the dancing and powdered sugar part.
    I’ve put zucchini in pancakes before and loved them.

    Ps I’m a great pancake turner so if you need any help….

  7. Haha I love that you made these mini because your mom isn’t around to flip big ones for you! I always have that trouble with flipping pancakes/eggs/anything flippable too.

    I’ve actually never added spinach to pancakes but I add spinach to my smoothies (and potato soup apparently), so adding it to pancakes seems normal to me! Us bloggers, we’re a rare kind…
