Green Pancake Recipe

There are so many healthy breakfast recipe variations and you can endlessly experiment. So here is today’s experiment, my Green Pancake Recipe. With only 68 calories per serve, 4% dietary fibre and 6% protein, it’s a definite winner. This recipe is made with Kale and Spirulina powder but you can easily substitute those for fresh spinach, kale or other greens.

Spirulina Benefits

Spirulina is a blue green algae that is one of the most researched superfoods. It is known for its detoxifying properties, cancer prevention, cholesterol reduction, weight loss aid and energy booster.

Kale Benefits

Kale is one of the healthiest and most nutritious plant foods in existence. It is one of the most nutrient dense foods and contains very little fat, but a large portion of the fat in it is the omega-3 fatty acid called alpha linolenic acid. Kale, like other leafy greens, is very high in antioxidants. This includes beta-carotene, vitamin C, as well as various flavonoids and polyphenols. To learn more about Kale check out 10 Proven Benefits of Kale.

Steamed or pan fried, your choice

The below recipe can be either steamed or prepared in a fry pan. I tried both and the steamed pancakes are more flavoursome and fluffy whereas the pan fried ones are more like your traditional pancakes. See differences below.
