Super Spinach Pancakes


This super spinach pancake recipe may sound a little weird, but trust us, they taste AMAZING! Just like regular pancakes but with the added goodness from the spinach and then delicious toppings to satisfy your sweet or savoury cravings.

Why should I go green? If you’re wondering why we’ve added spinach to our pancakes, we get it. Green pancakes aren’t usually the norm. But spinach is full of iron and rich in other micronutrients while also having such a mild flavour you won’t taste the difference. Ultimately, it’s a super simple way to get an extra bit of green in your diet!

Whether you’re after a sweet treat or want to switch it up and make it savoury, we’ve got two topping options for you to try with this recipe. Indulge in our berry blast yoghurt pancakes or treat your taste buds to our smoked salmon and cottage cheese pancakes.

We’ve also made sure these recipes are budget friendly, at only 71p for the sweet pancakes and £1.61 for the savoury version - so you can save some £££ and still eat well!
