Do you fancy a savory pancake? This Spinach Pancakes recipe is a treat! It’s super easy and above all very healthy: perfect for a balanced breakfast or lunch.

Spinach pancakes for a healthy meal!

For this recipe, I mixed wholemeal flour and white wheat flour. This makes these pancakes more nutritious because the wholemeal flour provides lots of fiber and nutrients. It is possible, though, to use only white flour.

If you are wondering what these pancakes taste like and do you smell like spinach a lot, my answer is rather than no. The taste of spinach remains very discreet and you can therefore add any type of garnish as for a traditional savory pancake.

The spinach is especially so that the pancakes do not dry out because spinach is mainly made of water.

These pancakes will make a perfect, balanced breakfast or lunch. In this recipe, I garnished them with avocado, cucumber and young spourts. You can garnish them otherwise, I wrote down some ideas in my article here.
