St. Patrick's Day Pancakes

Don’t forget to wear your green and don’t forget to eat your greens too!;)  Sharing a fun, simple and, of course, green recipe for St. Patrick’s Day!

Easy-to-make healthy St. Patrick’s Day Pancakes with just 5 ingredients plus they are gluten-free and grain-free.  And instead of using food coloring, I just added in spinach for that pretty green color. Not only is the spinach great for the coloring, it’s also the perfect way to sneak in more fiber, vitamins and antioxidants. But, no worries, you can’t taste the spinach at all!  These pancakes are also a sweet way for kids to get in their greens too.

Make these for breakfast or even dinner {I’m always a fan of breakfast for dinner!} to celebrate St. Patty’s Day or these are great to make whenever you have a pancake craving!
