Take a look at these pancakes! I am obsessing over this beautiful green color. Samantha must have picked up on the fact that I LOVE breakfast, especially when it is delicious and healthy. Samantha hit the mark with this recipe - simple, nourishing, and nutrient dense. Just how I like it! I love how vibrant these pancakes are without any artificial food coloring. Vegetables are so amazing, aren't they?!

Here is what Samantha says about these pancakes...

"I am so excited to be a guest blogger today on Whole Living Lauren.  My name is Samantha and I blog over at wholenewstart.com.  On my site I share wholesome recipes, natural beauty tips, and holistic health advice.  Today I wanted to share with you guys one of my favorite breakfasts that I make.  I have a one -year-old little girl and some days I can barely get her to eat any vegetables so I try to sneak them in any way I can.  She loves these oatmeal spinach pancakes and I love that I can get her to eat some vegetables in the morning right when she starts the day."

As Samantha mentioned, this recipe is great for both kids and adults. A nourishing breakfast in the morning really is the best way to start your day on the right foot. I love that this recipe has a good mix of protein, carbohydrate, and lots of good fiber....and only 4 ingredients!

Spinach Oatmeal Pancakes by Samantha at Whole New Start

Nourishing and wholesome pancakes with loads of good nutrition. Great for both kids and adults!


  • 1 2/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (water works too)


  1. Add 1 and 1/3 cup oats to a blender and blend into flour.
  2. Add banana, spinach, and almond milk to the blender and blend until everything is mixed.
  3. Add an additional 1/3 cup oats (not oat flour) to the blender and mix for a couple seconds.
  4. Heat your griddle on medium low.
  5. While the griddle is heating let the pancake mixture sit and thicken.
  6. Scoop 1/4 cup batter onto the lightly greased griddle. Wait about 2-3 minutes, then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes. 
  7. Enjoy!


*When you pour the batter on your pan spread it around to make sure it isn't too thick.

*Make sure you cook on medium low and flip over after the pancake starts bubbling slightly.

*These pancakes will be slightly gooey because they are oatmeal pancakes.
