Spinach Protein Pancakes
These vegan green protein pancakes have long held the title as most popular pancake on spabettie. Loved by everyone with a whimsical side, those who love greens, and those looking for an alternative sandwich bread!
I was craving this sandwich for a week.
Spinach Pancakes make the best sandwiches. We use these protein pancakes to make a more traditional ‘deli style’ sandwich, but this time it was simple but delicious.
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.
Make a big batch of green pancakes! Keep them in the fridge all week for quick breakfasts or sandwiches. If I know I am making them for sandwiches, I will season them with savory flavors.
If I know I want some as a sweet stack, I’ll make those first and then add savory flavor. These are so quick to make though – throw handfuls of spinach in the blender while you heat the griddle…
I know they look odd (they are vibrant!), does a spinach pancake sound good to you?
