a typical batch of your favorite pancake mix (box or scratch)
1/2 c. pureed spinach (3 c. loose spinach)
1/4 c. applesauce
1/4 c. dry oatmeal
The oatmeal and spinach give these Popeye Pancakes just enough texture. The applesauce makes them moist with a hint of sweetness. If you're unsure of how the spinach will go over, you could add more applesauce than spinach the first time you make these.
Popeye would be proud . . . "It's O-ey the-sailor-man! Toot! Toot!"
(Look for boat pancakes coming this summer!)
We hope you enjoy this Memorial Day weekend as you feel the rush of summer coming in.
To celebrate, we made these healthy, yummy patriotic pops. (Cheaters can use canned coconut milk, but you will miss the awe-inspiring moment of cracking open a Thai coconut, sticking a straw inside and slurping the elixir of life.)
Please join us in saluting our troops over the weekend!
P.S. A BIG thanks to our friend, Jorinda, for sharing this fine family pancake recipe!
