I love to make chocolate pancakes, but adding spinach makes them even better! I promise, you can’t even taste the spinach!

These take literally minutes to make and are perfect for toddlers, and parents! I wouldn’t give them to babies under 1, because of the chocolate. Besides that, anyone will enjoy these pancakes and get a nice serving of veggies while doing it.

What You Will Need

  1. 1 Banana- adds the sweet flavor
  2. 1 Egg-see substitution below
  3. 1/4 cup flour- I use whole wheat
  4. Spinach- the ingredient that adds the nutrition and the fun color
  5. 1 tbsp cocoa powder- the chocolate in the recipe!
  6. 1 handful spinach-the special ingredient


  1. Eggs- you can substitute a flax egg for the egg.
  2. Flour-you can substitute almond flour.


After cooling completely, you can store these pancakes in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 3 days. You can freeze in a zip lock bag for up to two months. To reheat, microwave for 30 second increments.
