Ingredients for servings


  • 2.5 cups Baby Spinach

  • 1 cup Non-Fat Greek Yogurt

  • 0.75 cup 1% Reduced-Fat Milk Almond or Soy Milk will also work

  • 0.75 cup finely ground Corn Meal certified gluten-free if necessary

  • 0.75 cup Chickpea Flour certified gluten-free if necessary; all-purpose or whole wheat flour will also work if not gluten intolerant

  • In a food processor or a blender, mix together the spinach, yogurt, and almond milk until smooth.

  • Pour the batter into a large mixing bowl, and stir in the rest of the ingredients.

  • Lightly grease a large skillet (or two, to speed up the process) and place over medium-low heat.

  • Pour 2-3 tablespoons of batter onto the pan for each pancake (a 1/8 cup measuring spoon works well).

  • Cook each side for about 2-3 minutes, flipping with a spatula once the edges of the pancakes are no longer runny, and you can slide a spatula easily underneath.

  • Enjoy them on their own or serve with some honey or maple syrup. Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
