This recipe is so versatile, top it with various ingredients, adding more veggies and/or proteins as you like. Because they are savory, these pancakes have no added sugar and lend themselves to more protein and healthy fat-packed toppings, which makes them better at balancing blood sugar throughout the day. I also like this recipe because it includes three nutrient-dense foods: spinach, oats, and eggs. Spinach is loaded with a wide variety of vitamins and minerals, it is highly anti-inflammatory, and beneficial for heart health. Oats are a great source of nutrients as well and act as an excellent prebiotic food due to their soluble fiber content. Eggs are a great source of protein, vitamins, and minerals. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
