Blueberry Banana Spinach Pancakes

Leprechaun-Approved Blueberry-Banana — and Spinach! — Pancakes

If you're into throwing greens in your smoothie and greens in your muffins, then you'll love this recipe that adds spinach to your pancakes. Although the greens add a slightly teal earthy hue, they also add fiber, calcium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin K, and folate.

The best part is that you can't even taste the spinach since it's mingling with blueberry, bananas, and a touch of maple syrup. This just may become your new favorite pancake recipe, and you'll wonder why never thought to add spinach to your stack before.
