Pancakes Incorporated with Spinach and Banana


1 cup oat flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
salt, to taste
3/4 cup milk or buttermilk
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 large organic egg
1 medium ripe banana
2 cups spinach
zest of 1 lemon
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. In large bowl, stir together flours, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and a couple pinches of salt.
  2. Place milk, yogurt, egg, banana, spinach, and lemon zest in blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Add spinach mixture to flour mixture and mix together. Fold in walnuts, if using. Let batter rest for 15 minutes to allow flour to soak up some of the liquid.
  4. Heat greased skillet over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake into pan and cook for 2 minutes, or until darkened around the edges and bubbles form on the surface. Flip and cook for 2 minutes more.
  5. Place prepared pancakes on metal rack and keep warm in 200ºF (100ºC) oven while you cook the remaining batter.

Makes 4 servings.
