Hide the Vegetables: St. Patrick’s Day Green Paleo Pancakes

Hide the Vegetables: St. Patrick's Day Green Paleo PancakesThese days it’s pretty challenging getting our 2 year old twins to eat any vegetables, so I’m always trying to find creative ways to hide them. Since they love pancakes, hiding some spinach in these ones to make them green for St. Patrick’s Day is perfect! I changed these up from our favorite pancake recipe found on Lexi’s Clean Kitchen (although I noticed afterwards that she has her own green version here), and we have been making them all week long! They love these so much I’m going to keep making them even after St. Patrick’s Day is over, I’ll just call them Hulk pancakes 😉 These pancakes also have zero added dyes, sugar, oils, milk, or grains and are paleo friendly and a perfect healthy food for kids! I’ve also added a nut free option for those sensitive to nuts or on an AIP diet and have successfully reintroduced eggs.

St. Patrick's Day Green Paleo Pancakes

Adapted from Lexis Clean Kitchen, although I've made a few personal changes. Feel free to use all almond flour if you can't find tigernut, but I really love the graham crackery sort of taste and fluffiness that it adds, and I think its definitely worth seeking out. If you are following the AIP protocol and have successfully reintroduced eggs, this recipe works great using all tigernut flour in place of almond flour.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/3 Cup Tigernut Flour)
  • 1 Cup Tapioca Starch (can also use arrowroot starch, I find this version more fluffy with less of a "chew")
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder (paleo friendly)
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • Dash Salt
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Medium Banana
  • 2 Cups Spinach
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Almond Extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat a medium size skillet on medium/low heat.
  2. Place flours, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon into a medium size bowl and whisk together to combine.
  3. In a blender, add eggs, banana, spinach, and vanilla, and almond extract blend until smooth and there are no spinach pieces visible.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry and whisk until fully combined.
  5. Add about a tablespoon of cooking oil to grease skillet. Once pan is hot enough, add about a 1/2 cup of batter at a time and cook 2-3 minutes on each side (if using all tigernut flour they take a little longer).
  6. Continue until batter is gone, makes 4-5 good size pancakes.
  7. Top with your favorite pancake toppings and enjoy! My kids love almond butter and homemade jam!

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Oat Cookies {Gluten Free, Dairy Free}

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Oat Cookies {Gluten Free, Dairy Free}

A Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Oat Cookie Recipe and Baking Day with the Twins, Enjoy!Best Ever Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Oat Cookies {Gluten Free, Dairy Free}It’s a bold title, I know, but I stand behind it 100%. These are my families all time favorite cookie recipe, and if we had to choose just one cookie to eat for the rest of our lives, all dietary restrictions aside…These. Would. Be. It. (the hubs agrees, I checked before I wrote that 🙂 ) We’ve actually made them 7 times in the past month alone, and a few of those times were double batches! ( it’s the holidays so that’s okay, right?)…and I will confess, I’ve eaten 6 in one sitting <–this is saying a lot people, they are THAT good.

This recipe was originally a peanut butter cookie recipe given to me by my sister-in-law (thanks Carrie!), which was also really good, but since we can’t have legumes, I made a few changes and came up with these. We personally love them better than the original peanut butter version! Thank goodness because anything peanut butter and chocolate is a sure winner in my book. Finally, I’ve found something that makes me feel like I’m not missing out!

I’ve tried this recipe with several different kinds of almond butter, and my absolute favorite is Justin’s. Although, with this batch of cookies my jar of almond butter was oddly dry so they turned out a little different, but you want a smooth and thick almond butter. Do not use fresh ground out of the machine, this recipe won’t work with that kind. I also love MaraNatha and Kirkland brand from Costco if you can’t find Justin’s.
