Sneaky Greens for kid food

I sneak stuff into my kids food all of the time- but it’s not really being sneaky because after they tell me how much they love it I tell them what was in it!  One of the ways I use kale or spinach is in pancakes and waffles.

Incredible Hulk Waffles (or pancakes)

Your own pancake mix or recipe or you can follow my jumbled one below.

Make it in the blender and blend in a couple handfuls of spinach or kale. It doesn’t change the taste just the color. 🙂

My pancakes or waffles:

A staple in our house is Pamela’s gluten free baking mix. It is easy and I can add stuff to it without changing the texture.

In blender:

3 eggs (I like to make them high protein)

1 cup Pamela’s gluten free mix

2 T Coconut sugar

2 T coconut or olive oil

2 T ground flax

Dash sea salt

1/2 a banana

Ground millet or quinoa (if I hand this I add a couple tablespoons as well)

Handfull of greens

Enough milk to make it batter like.

Fry in coconut oil or waffle iron. We always add chocolate chips to our pancakes and top with organic butter and a little raw honey.

I am a stay at home mom to 3 beautiful babies who fill my days with all of the glory and grime of motherhood. I enjoy cooking (as long as there is not a whiny toddler attached to my hip or leg), being outdoors, all things coffee and coffeehouse related, watching my kids' imaginations go wild and a trip away to Asheville or a dinner out with my hubby. I'm a wanna-be hippie and naturalist who cheats or bends (maybe I'm balanced?? :) I'm in love with my husband of 7 years who is a web developer (techy) to whom I owe any internet or smart phone savvy I possess.
