Spinach Pancakes

I absolutely love pancakes! For breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack.  There really is no wrong time to eat them.  You may have already tried my Pumpkin Pancakes or Carrot Cake Pancakes.  Both are super healthy and loaded with protein.  Way better than any box mix out there.  I decided to try something new today.  Oh my... it was awesome! I give you Spinach Pancakes!!
I know, I pancakes...kinda crazy right? Too bad I didn't think of them for St. Patrick's Day!! These are so tasty.  You can make them savory or sweet. The whole stack is only 200 calories and packed with 31 grams of protein!!  

Ingredients needed are...
MTS Vanilla whey, canned spinach, egg substitute, and baking powder.  You can also add a dash of salt if desired.  You could use frozen spinach too.  Just thaw and drain extra liquid.

Feel free to try other brand of protein, but I cannot guarantee the same results.
You can purchase MTS whey here.
Use code KH30 to save 30%

First, drain your spinach.  Get as much of the liquid out as possible. 

Mix together the egg, protein powder, and baking powder first. 
Then stir in the spinach. Mix it up good.

Mmmm...I seriously cannot wait until next St. Patrick's Day!
Get your skillet nice and hot and coat with non stick spray.  
You are going to get 7 or 8 pancakes.

Wait for it...wait for patient!!
And flip! 
Dang I am getting good at this! Those are looking kinda sorta round...

I don't know about you, but I think those look crazy good! 
Can you even imagine a more healthy pancake?! They are made with a whole can of spinach!!
Popeye would love these!

I just topped mine with a little spray butter and a sprinkle of salt! Yum!
Now you could probably add some other spices or seasonings to the batter, but I think they are great just like this.  No need to complicate a good thing.
