From Jamielyn of I Heart Naptime, Saint Patrick’s breakfast includes green pancakes with Lucky Charms, green milk (use food color) and rainbow fruit parfaits.

She says, “Every once in a while I’ll throw some Lucky Charms into the batter to take these Saint Patrick’s Day pancakes over the top. It’s also fun to top them with whipped cream and some Lucky Charms too. Hello sugar!”

Yes, there’s sugar; but it’s a special-occasion fun food—ready in 20 minutes.

For those who don’t want the extra sugar, there’s a nutritious green pancake recipe below.


Ingredients For 4 Large Pancakes

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Green food coloring tp taste
  • Optional garnishes: whipped cream or yogurt, Lucky Charms

    1. PREHEAT a griddle to 300°F. Combine the milk and vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside and let sit for a few minutes.

    2. COMBINE the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.

    3. WHISK the butter, egg and vanilla into the milk. Add the food coloring and stir until you reach the desired color. Then combine with flour mixture, and stir until smooth.

    4. USE a 1/4 cup measure to pour the batter onto a greased griddle. Let cook on one side until bubbles begin to pop, then flip to the other side. Cook just until golden brown. Garnish as desired.



    California Avocados entices bloggers to try different, tasty things with their crop.

    This recipe for fluffy pancakes, from Running To The Kitchen, has healthful and nutritious avocado plus blueberries.

    For protein, they’re topped with a poached or fried egg for a combination of savory and sweet.

    They’re naturally green from the avocado, but you can add a drop of food color for a deeper hue.

    Prep time is 10 minutes, cook time is 10 minutes.
    Ingredients For 2 Servings

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (or gluten-free blend)
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons sugar (any kind)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 ripe avocado, mashed

  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil or substitute*
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
