Spabettie, my heart did a little flip flop of excitment. Such a glorious green. I remembered them when I didn't know what to do with all the spinach in the fridge. I also had plenty of eggs so I decided to try her original version rather than her vegan version with chia seeds. I stuck with her gluten free vibe, using a mix of flours inspired by Ricki that I first tried in these burgers.
Everyone loved them. I made them while E and Sylvia were out the back. Sylvia came in to help in her inimitable way - pressing the buttons on the food processor and eating the raw flours. I was pleased that she ate the green pancakes enthusiastically. She then asked for some pink pancakes for Dolly! When I told E that they were GF he was surprised.
yoof station Triple J, though I am well out of its demographic. It didn't stop me buying neutral sheets (ugh - why don't they make fun sheets for grown-ups?). However, Triple J was playing far more interesting music, even if I didn't know most of it. It made me think that shopping centres often try and please everyone and end up being bland. If you go out on a limb with a challenge, it will be hit and miss. Though you don't always succeed, when you do it is brilliant. Just like these spinach pancakes.

Makes about 14 smallish pancakes
- 3 good handfuls of spinach - about 3 packed cups (most of 150g packet of baby spinach)
- 3 eggs (or 3 tbsp chia seeds soaked in 1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp water)
- 3/4 cup flour (I used 6 tbsp millet, 4 tbsp quinoa, 2 tbsp arrowroot - 1 tbsp = 15ml)
- 1-2 pinches of salt, or to taste
