Pancakes as Vegetable Vehicles

Having trouble getting your kids or spouse to eat veggies? How about this recipe:

Confetti Pancakes
Makes enough pancakes for a family of 4

2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups unsweetened almond milk
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sweetener (agave nectar, sugar, etc.)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup shredded zucchini
1/4 cup finely diced collard greens
1/4 cup shredded carrot
Optional: add 3 dark chocolate chips to each pancake
(“Chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, anyone?!”) 

Mix all ingredients together, and add more almond milk as needed for thinner pancakes. Cook in a large skillet with a touch of oil. Add fruit sauce, maple syrup, agave, or nothing at all. YUM.

    These were a big hit with my 15 month old twins! Even the hubby agreed they were good! I used Swiss chard (it came in my CSA box) and either rice or cow’s milk- can’t remember. One twin loves all food. The other is developing a sweet tooth and complains with green veggies these days so hiding his veggies may be the way to go in our house! Keep the recipes coming! Love ’em!
