  • 1 cup of plant-based milk
  • 2 cups of packed fresh spinach
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil plus more for greasing
  • 2 large ripe bananas mashed
  • 1 ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of agave brown sugar, or maple syrup
  • Vegan Butter for garnish optional
  • Maple syrup for garnish


  • In a blender, mix together the milk and spinach until there are no spinach chunks left.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Pour in the green milk and gently mix until the batter is smooth.
  • Preheat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. If you don’t have a nonstick pan (or your nonstick pan needs a bit more slip), you can lightly oil the pan.
  • Scoop out the batter with a ½ measuring cup and pour onto the preheated pan. Once bubbles begin to form, flip the pancake over and cook the other side until light brown. Remove from the heat and repeat until all the batter is cooked.


Use your favorite syrup for serving.

Ingredients to make spinach banana pancakes laid out on a surface

St. Patrick's Breakfast Dream

If you are looking for some St. Patty’s Day food inspo, then these green pancakes will come in handy. Get the family gang ready and whip these up to start a lucky charm day the right way. If you’re not familiar with this Irish tradition, we can tell you a bit about it. Every year on March 17th (for hundreds of years now!), people in Ireland have been commemorating their patron Saint, St. Patrick, and prioritizing all things green in honor of their flag.

This joyful tradition naturally followed the Irish immigrants to the US and now the party multiplied around the world, as the day to celebrate Irish heritage. And no one is complaining because we love having one day a year to focus on all things green!

Important Step to Green Pancake Success

We are pretty sure you will love these Spinach Banana Pancakes, but before you dive right in, we advise you to take a few notes before. To avoid lumps of spinach crushing your pancake dreams, make sure you blend it with the plant milk before mixing anything else in. This crucial step will ensure that the spinach is fully blended and your mix is nice and smooth.

Have you ever tried adding greens to your sweet preparations? We promise you won’t even taste it!

    Do you think gluten free oat flour would work?
