I know, I know! Spinach Pancakes that doesn’t sound appetizing at all. That’s what we thought too. On Friday night my husband came up with the idea of trying a recipe for Spinach Pancakes he found. I was less than thrilled. But I eventually complied and he made them for dinner. Going with a Halloween theme he told the kids they were Goblin Pancakes to help them swallow the Green color. We were shocked, surprisingly they were really good. Even our six year old who struggles to consume vegetables gave them two thumbs up!!! Afterwards he confessed to the kids that they were spinach pancakes and they were unfazed. So….We thought we would share! You’ve got to try this recipe. We think you will be pleasantly surprised.
