So I'm staring in my refrigerator, starving, thinking that I should make something with this kale, but all I want to eat right now is pancakes. For any one who does not know what kale is, it is a leafy green vegetable that is loaded with nutrients. I bought mine organic at Whole Foods. You want to take out the vein parts too. Then I thought, why not chop up a few kale leaves in my pancake mix. This way I get a serving or two of vegetables while still having my delicious pancakes. Now, I don't put syrup on my pancakes because it would be kind of gross with the kale and I'm still on my sugar fast. I believe the key to these pancakes tasting really good is to use a high quality yummy pancake mix like the one I love, Pamela's pancake and waffle mix. At first I thought I would use my buckwheat mix, but that could be too much of a good thing all in one. I recommend using the buckwheat pancake mix with blueberries or apples chopped up for a sweeter flavor. Then after I tasted my kale pancakes, I decided I would use some left over mashed sweet potatoes along with the rest of the kale in the next batch. I love taking a loved item, like pancakes, and mixing in something healthy!
