St. Patrick's Day Green Vegan Pancakes Recipe


Ingredients
·         1 1/2 cups white whole wheat or spelt flour
·         2 teaspoons baking powder
·         1 teaspoon baking soda
·         1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
·         1/2 teaspoon salt
·         1 1/4 cup rice, almond or soy milk
·         1 tablespoon maple syrup
·         1 tablespoon vegetable oil
·         1/2 cup applesauce (or 1 mashed banana)
·         1 cup packed fresh spinach


 Preparation 
1. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. 
2. Place the remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. 
3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. 4. Heat a large pan or griddle over medium heat and grease with oil.
5. Pour about 2 tablespoon of the pancake mixture onto the griddle, cook 2 minutes or until bubbles start forming on the surface and the bottom is golden brown.
6. Flip the pancakes and cook for 2 minutes longer. 
 

To Freeze: Allow to cool, place in a ziploc bag, label and freeze for up to 4 months. When ready, place in toaster oven or oven at 300 and heat for 10 minutes or until heated through. 

To Keep Warm: Place the pancakes in a 200F oven to keep warm until ready to serve. 

Accompaniments: Serve with maple syrup or honey. They're both delicious!
