I am on a bit of a "whole and natural" foods kick around here. In the old days, which means about eight days ago, I would have dumped generous amounts of food coloring into our pancakes to achieve the desired hue. Thankfully, Eli asked for Luke Skywalker's lightsaber, which is green, and I did have an idea how to naturally color that. Spinach.
|Our ingredients: spinach, bananas, and pancake mix.|
The finished lightsaber pancake. Hmmmmm.
Not everything is a rip-roaring success around here.
(Is it just me, or does this look a bit obscene?) Yes, Sarah. Oh yes, it does look obscene.
I did get an "Awesome" from Eli, so I guess that is something.
|He ate it all. Every last bite. I tried it too and I promise you...you could not even taste the spinach.|
|Even Abby, who tends to be a purist when it comes to pancakes, gave the greenies a try. I don't think she disliked them, she just prefers them plain.|
|So there you have it: spinach pancakes that don't taste like spinach at all.|
What's your favorite way to "hide" healthy food??
