Spinach Pancakes – plant based and wildly vibrant green, you cannot even taste the spinach! Sweeten these with maple syrup, or enjoy them as a savory stack or sandwich bread with some minced garlic and sea salt.
These pancakes have long held the title as most popular pancake on spabettie, loved by kids big and small, young and old.

This triple decker started with a generous spread of garlic chive hummus, and stacked with kale and sliced roma tomato, this is a perfect sandwich full of fresh flavor.
