St. Patty’s Day Green Pancakes {Hidden Veggie}

I’m really into hidden veggies lately. My neighbor has the most adorable toddler who doesn’t love eating veggies. After talking with her about sneaking veggies into food for her kids, I knew getting creative to do so would be fun; and can be holiday-festive, too! These are not only perfect for your stubborn junk-food loving kiddo, but spouse and adults alike. Now let’s nourish your family with a festive breakfast packed with good-for-you ingredients!  

Speaking of things I’m really into lately, motivational quotes. Call me cheesy, but I can’t get enough. Like this pillow I picked up this weekend.  They just make me happy. Expect great things and they will happen- make them happen!

St. Patty’s Day is around the corner and whether you have Irish roots or not, it’s all about all things GREEN. Green smoothies, green pancakes, green cupcakes. Am I right? Yes, definitely right. At least about the green pancakes!

  • AH! Any way to ‘sneak veggies’ gets a gold star from me! I have a little, who is allergic to nuts. What else could I use besides the almond flour? Arrowroot? I know I lose the the paleo aspect, but that isn’t a dealbreaker. My kids eat their weight in pancakes and this looks like a good way to be both festive and sneaky with veggies!

  • I’ve been trying to incorporate more vegetables into our diet, and this was a great recipe that even my husband enjoyed. Thank you for sharing!
