Frugal Hidden Veggie Pancakes

If you’re looking for a way to add a few more vegetables into your diet, or your child’s, these Frugal Hidden Veggie Pancakes might be the answer. Nearly everyone loves a pancake, and these are a great way to just slide a few extra serves into your diet in an interesting way. If you’ve never thought about putting grated vegetables in your pancakes, try this recipe – you will hardly notice!


  1. In a blender, add the chopped vegetables and pulse until very finely chopped.

  2. To this add the milk, egg and vanilla, and pulse until blended and mixture is combined. The mixture will appear thick, this is ok.

  3. In a large bowl add all your dry ingredients: the flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix to combine.

  4. Add the wet vegetable mix into the dry flour mix and stir until just combined. It's important not to over stir your batter as it makes the pancakes tough.

  5. Heat a frying pan or grid on a steady medium heat. Add a little butter once hot, and spoon a large scoop of batter into the pan.

  6. Cook the batter until bubbles form around the pancake, and the edges slightly change colour, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes on the reverse side.

  7. Repeat until all the batter is finished. Serve with honey or maple syrup as desired.
