Green Monster Pancakes

Who doesn’t love a plate of pancakes?  I have some many fond childhood memories of pancake breakfasts…or when we were really lucky, pancakes for dinner.

Our pancakes look a little different these days.  I strive to get to squeeze as much nutrition into my gluten free vegan pancakes as possible– transforming them from a “meh–not so good for you food” into a nutrition powerhouse.  Here is my most recent pancake creation– full of protein, fiber, and even greens!
