Green Pancakes with Green Smoothies

Standard

We’re trying it again and perfecting it…this time with more GREENS!

Adapted from a fun cookbook: The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies For Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids’ Favorite Meals

Green Pancakes

Adapted from The Sneaky Chef‘s “Chocolate Chip Pancakes”
3/4 c. freshly milled soft white wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. thawed Creepy Green Cubes
1/4 c. vanilla yogurt
1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
2 tbsp. milk
1 large egg
2 tbsp. honey
1/4 c. chocolate chips (optional)
Mix together dry ingredients. Mix together wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until blended.  If you are using chocolate chips, add them to the batter at this point and mix lightly. Spray a large skillet with oil spray and when hot, drop batter onto skillet. When bubbles begin to set around the edges of the pancake and the skillet-side is golden, gently flip them over. Continue to cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the pancake is set. Serve with syrup. 😉

(I like the pancakes above – they are my daughter’s creations!)

The smoothie recipe is the same as before. This time I used 6 “creepy green cubes” and a whole apple. YUM!

The cubes served two purposes – adding chill and lots of nutrition! Plus, since the greens were cooked and finely ground this time around, it smoothed out the leaf chunks that were a bit unpleasant last time.

Variation: Try blueberries instead of grapes.
