Savory Spinach St. Patrick’s Day Pancakes

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!

Serves: 1


½ cup rolled oats

1 egg

1 handful of spinach leaves

1 tsp Italian herbs (optional)

¼ tsp baking powder


  • Add oats to a blender or food processor to make a flour.

  • Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth and cohesive.

  • Heat a large frying pan or griddle on medium heat and spray olive or coconut oil.

  • Pour about a ⅛-¼ cup of batter per pancake onto the pan.
