Veggies for Breakfast: SPINANA Pancakes with Fresh Strawberry Syrup

The USDA recommends we have a minimum of FIVE one-half cup servings of fruits and veggies everyday to maintain our health.  With busy lives and full schedules, sometimes we have a hard time meeting that minimum requirement. We think it is best to get a jump on the day and eat veggies for breakfast.  Try these sweet and delicious spinach-banana oat pancakes. They are oh-so-yummy and super nutrient dense. 

SPINANA Pancakes

1/2 Cup of Whole Oats (gluten-free if need be), uncooked
3 eggs 
1 Cup Spinach Leaves, raw
1 medium ripe banana, cut in pieces
1 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp ground flax seed
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
In a blender, combine Spinach, Banana and Water. Blend until liquid. 
In a small bowl, beat eggs. 
In a medium bowl, combine Oats, Flax Seeds, Cinnamon. 
Add in liquid contents of blender, beaten eggs and vanilla extract. 
Combine completely.
On a greased hot griddle or frying pan, place 1/4 cups full of pancake mixture.
Cook until browned on each side. 
Top with real maple syrup or fresh strawberry syrup*
Fresh Strawberry Syrup
In a saucepan, combine 1 cup of diced fresh strawberries and 1 Tbsp raw honey.  Simmer on medium-low heat until strawberries breakdown and form a chunky sauce.
