Happy St. Patrick's Day! - Savory Basil Pancakes

I'm back!

After a long hiatus, I'm ready to start making fun food again. For St. Patrick's day lunch today, I made "green" shamrock savory pancakes.  They aren't really green in color, but they COULD be, if the basil/spinach that they contain were pureed. I based the batter off of my standard waffle recipe proportions, and threw in the greens.  Here's how it worked:


Combine in a 2c measuring cup:
1 egg   -----> beat with fork
1 tbs extra virgin olive oil   ---> beat into egg
1 cup almond milk      ------> add and stir
1 c fresh basil leaves, chopped
1/2 c baby spinach leaves, chopped
a few sprigs of lavender leaves, chopped  ---> add all chopped greens
1/8 tsp salt (or to taste- should taste a bit salty)
dash pepper
2 dash onion powder
dash garlic powder  ----> add all seasonings, stirr
1/2 c garbanzo bean flour
1/2 c amaranth flour       ---> combine and stir. (millet instead of amaranth would also work, or all garbanzo)

Cook on a non-stick frying pan. To make a shamrock shape, pour four small circles of batter in the pan, and let them blend together in the center. Spread with ghee or EarthBalance, and top with avocado slices.

International Waffle Day Update:  this recipe is also AWESOME as waffles!!!!!
