  • 2 oz fresh spinach 80g (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cups oat flour can use rolled oats, see post (240g)
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon (1.3g)
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg (1.3g)
  • 1 cup almond milk can use oat milk (236ml)
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder optional (2.5g)
  • teaspoon pink salt (0.62g)


To make the oat flour.

  • Place the oats in a spice grinder.
  • Mill into a fine consistency.

To make the pancakes

  • Add all of the ingredients to your blender.
  • Pulse into a smooth batter.
  • Heat a non stick tava/crepe pan on medium-low heat.
  • Coat the pan with olive oil (I used a pastry brush)
  • Pour some of the batter onto the pan.
  • Cook the first side (until it starts to bubble) then flip it over and repeat.
  • Transfer the pancake onto a cooling rack and repeat with the rest of the batter.


  • This recipe makes about 6 pancakes in total
  • Make sure you are using a LARGE banana not small.
  • Don't use frozen banana for this recipe use fresh.
  • You may want to omit the spices, pink salt and baking powder if making them for toddlers/young children.
  • If the batter gets too thick add some more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time until it's loose.
  • On the other hand, if the batter is too thin, add 1 tablespoon at a time of oat flour.
  • Feel free to garnish the pancakes with whatever fruit you want. I used blueberries and banana.
  • If you want to keep the recipe nut free simply use coconut milk or oat milk in place of almond milk.
  • For best results, use a high powdered blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec.
  • The more spinach you use the darker the hue of green the pancakes will be.
  • Use a tava/crepe pan for the pancakes as they will be easier to flip over
