Green Pancakes


  • ¾ cup nut milk of your choice or filtered water
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp flax seeds
  • ½ cup oats
  • 1 small banana
  • ¼ tsp stevia powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon powder
  • ½ cup kale or spinach


  1. Place nut milk, chia and flax seeds in the blender and let it sit for 5 minutes.

  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend.
  3. Using the oil of your choice, add it to a large skillet over medium heat. Pour about ¼ cup batter into the pan for each pancake. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until soft bubbles form on top, then flip and cook for another minute or two.
  4. Top with maple syrup and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Maria notes: I like to cook with coconut oil and ghee because they are healthy cooking oils and tolerate medium to medium-high heat. But, you can choose the oil you like!
