  • Combine almond flour, salt, pepper, and parika in small bowl and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix spinach, eggs, parmesan cheese, and garlic.
  • Add flour and spice mix to the spinach mixutre and mix well to combine.
  • Heat a lightly greased skillet over medium heat.
  • To make Shamrock Pancakes: Use a spoon and place 3 dollops together to create a clover shape. Add another dollop to create a stem. Cook for 1 minute and then flip. Cook the other side for another minute or until golden brown.
  • For regular pancakes: Add about a 1/4 cup of the spinach mixture to the pan and use a spoon to flatten out into a pancake shape. Cook for about 1 minute and then flip. Cook on the other side until golden brown.


Be sure to thaw and drain spinach completely before making the pancake mixture. To do this, use the microwave to defrost for 1-2 minutes. Line a colander with paper towels and allow to drain for a few minutes. Use the paper towels to help squeeze as much water out as possible. 
Almond flour is used in this recipe, but you can use any flour you have.
