Green Pancakes…..

Green Pancakes

These Green Pancakes with Bananas and honey lemon syrup are the best surprise you can have.

So just why are they a surprise? Well it’s about the spinach, the beautiful spinach that make these so green and so very good for you. To be honest they are just as good stuffed with a cheesy chicken mixture. Yes, these amazing pancakes go with savoury or sweet.

I told you they are special.  I never thought to include spinach in a pancake till I saw this recipe on Tieghan’s blog, Half Baked Harvest. I went looking for other recipes on the internet after that and discovered a world of pancakes just like these.

Green Pancakes

They are really best made like crepes thin and delicate, although I have made them as fluffy green numbers too, but you need to adjust the recipe for that.  Fold these fine thin ones over, slathered with a spoon of plain or sweetened yoghurt.  I love them with sliced bananas but I guess they would be nice with all kinds of berries too or maybe a berry sauce. Now there’s a good idea. What about raspberries or a blueberries either fresh or frozen and just lightly heated with some honey?

As well as eating them for brunch with fruit I also made a big batch of these and filled them with a saucy chicken and vegetable mixture. I covered them with extra cheese sauce and grated cheese and popped them in the oven to bake. Skater can’t resist this kind of thing. That means a double dose of vegetables for the unsuspecting…..

Believe it or not though they really are the best with fruit and a honey lemon syrup. Give them a try and let me know.

My Kitchen Stories: 
This is a great pancake to cook. Not only does it have hidden goodness it is easy to make. make a whole pile then fill and serve. you'll need a really good blender for these pancakes because this makes the smooth green batter. This recipe uses Australian cup measurements
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana nice and ripe and soft
  • 200 ml milk , any kind (3/4 cup) (200 ml)
  • 100 gm English Spinach (2 large handfuls)
  • 60 gm butter melted cooled to warm (4 tablespoons )
  • 130 gm plain flour (1 cup)
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 250 gm plain or honey yoghurt (1 cup)
Honey Lemon Syrup
  • 125 ml honey (½ cup)
  • 25 ml lemon juice ( ½)
  • 30 gm Pistachios, chopped ( ¼ cup)
  • 2 sliced bananas
  1. Put the eggs, milk, banana, spinach and butter into the blender and blend until smooth and there are no spinach bits left .
  2. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and blend again till combined and smooth
  3. Heat a crepe or fry pan till hot. Add a little oil by wiping some oiled kitchen paper over the pan( I use olive oil spray)
  4. Pour in enough mix so that it just covers the base of the pan when swirled around ( approx ¼ cup). Cook till the pancake starts to set 1- 2 minutes- then flip over and cook for ½ a minute. Don't cook till dry and dark brown- just done will do.Tip onto a plate and set aside. You can keep them warm by placing a tea towel over them. Continue till the mix is finished. It will make approximately 12 x 20 cm (9in)
  5. To make the honey lemon syrup put the honey and lemon into a pot or into a bowl in the microwave and cook till hot. Let it just come to a boil them pour into a jug or directly onto prepared pancakes when plated.
  6. Spread each pancake with a bit over a teaspoon of yoghurt, then fold up. Separate onto serving plates or onto a platter.
  7. Once they are all filled with yoghurt and plated drizzle with honey syriup and sprinkle with chopped Pistachios and banana
