St. Patty’s Day Pancakes

 

In case you haven’t noticed (or noticed) I have been really into pancakes lately. I have been making pancakes for weekend breakfasts for the last few weeks lately because they are just too dang good not to indulge in on the weekends.

 

 

While I was making these, I had the faintest memory of eating green colored pancakes for St. Patrick’s day at a daycare I went to when I was really young. I pair that memory with a few of that daycare center, wherein I finger painted and made noodle necklaces, but the memories feel almost like dreams from being so far in the past. Isn’t it crazy that our brains can confuse memories and dreams, reality and fantasy? Or is that just why I’m a Psych major?

When they made their pancakes, I have no idea how they made them green, but I doubt they cared much about health so it was probably just green food coloring. Instead of food coloring or any junk like that, these beautiful pancakes actually use SPINACH for their beautiful color. Don’t tell your kids.

Even when I told Mitch, he was skeptical, but after trying them confirmed that they were “dank.” You can take our words for it, or you can test out the healthy spinach twist for yourself!

If you do try them, please please let me know what you think! I love hearing how the recipes go for you and how I can improve them for you in the future!

 

 

Love,
