St. Paddy’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!
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!
Side note: You don’t taste the veggies one bit in these. Kid-approved!

Have you experimented with hidden veggies? How do you sneak veggies in for your family?
I used to experiment a lot more with protein pancakes, 2-ingredient pancakes, and so on. While I love those (and ate them everyday for like 3 months at one point), I wanted pancakes that actually TASTE and have the texture of real pancakes.
I’m not kidding when I say these Fluffy Paleo Pancakes are the real deal. They’re based off of my cinnamon crunch pancakes, and are really just the perfect pancake base, ever. I make batches of the mix for my mom every time she comes to visit, and she’s not grain-free!
Pumpkins… round two! If you saw (or made) last week’s epic Nutella Swirl Pumpkin Muffins, you may be on board with a month of pumpkin goodness for Healthy Food Friday! Loaded with health benefits and super delicious, pumpkin is the perfect in-season ingredient.
These are obviously the best uses of your pumpkin this season! Ahem… cocktail, coffee, pancakes, body scrub… plus, my new little puppy Jax is enjoying pumpkin mixed into his meals to aid in digestion!
