Spinach Healthycake Recipe

(makes 7 small pancakes)

1/2 pound frozen chopped spinach
3/4 cup whole grain flour (wheat, oat, barley, etc.)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 egg
1 cup low-fat milk (or any level of fat milk you own)
non-stick spray
optional ingredients:
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
3 scallions chopped

Thaw spinach in microwave and then place in fine mesh sieve. Using the back of a spoon press out the water in the spinach.

Add dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix. Add egg and milk, mix until smooth and then stir in spinach. Add optional ingredients.

Heat a large fry pan over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick spray. Place a soup ladle full of batter on the pan and cook until the wet side of pancake bubbles (about 3 minutes). Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes until brown.


These pancakes are great for freezing and will keep in the fridge for a week.
