Green Pancakes….. they are really good looking don’t you think?. They are quite surprising. I love the combination of bananas and lemon syrup and I bet you will too
These Green Pancakes 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.
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.
