I woke up on St. Patrick’s Day wanting to make something green for breakfast. So I searched Super Healthy Kids’ site and found this recipe for No-Dye Green Pancakes. I used my Blendtec to blend the spinach, yogurt and other wet ingredients, mixing it with flour. The kids really went for these. But what surprised me most was that Big A was super enthused.
You see, I have two very different eaters. Big A eats — and tries — more foods than Little D but she is particular about certain items, like pancakes. Little D, on the other hand, has fewer foods in his repertoire, but isn’t choosey about the food he already accepts, like pancakes (unless it has big chunks of stuff in it!).
So I recently made these again and was reminded how good they are. Oh, and in case you were wondering, my kids see all the ingredients go in. No hiding. Anyone else make green pancakes?
Have a great weekend!
