Kids’ Kitchen: Green Veggie Pancakes

Green Veggie Pancakes

Happy Sunday, everyone! Today I’m sharing a recipe for Green Veggie Pancakes for the mini people in your lives. Full disclosure, this particular recipe did not meet with overwhelming approval from my little guy, but he’s a toddler so I’m not taking it personally or as anything wrong with the recipe, necessarily. I think they’re pretty delicious, and even River came around when I served them to him the third or forth time (with marinara sauce for dipping.) They’re super healthy and quick to pull together, let me know how it goes for you and your minis!
