Gut Healthy Spinach and Banana Pancakes (Gluten and Dairy Free)

February 18, 2020

So my son is on this spinach kick..he’s been putting spinach on everything! (I’m not complaining because he’s totally not a veggie lover)

I was a little hesitant with this recipe, because I wasn’t sure if the kids would like it, but they loved it! It was super simple to make and because it contains whole, nutritious ingredients, they were satisfied all morning.

I added Vital Proteins collagen peptides because #guthealth . The collagen peptides are super versatile and have no colour or flavour, so it’s a no brainer to add them. #momwin

Check out the recipe below, you and your kids will love them!


  • 1 ¼ cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oats
  • 1 cup milk (I used almond)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 1 scoop Vital Proteins collagen peptides
  • 1 cup raw spinach
  • 1 banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Butter or coconut oil for greasing


  1. Add the oats to your high speed blender, or Vitamix and blend until it becomes a flour consistency
  2. Add all remaining ingredients and blend on high until smooth
  3. Heat a skillet or griddle and grease with butter
  4. Place ¼ cup portions of pancake batter in to your pan and flip once each pancake gets bubbly on top
  5. Serve with your favourite toppings
