Light Spinach Pancake Breakfast Fajitas – all the beautiful flavors of Mexican fajitas stuffed into a super filling, super delicious breakfast pancake!

This is one of those breakfasts that stays with you until lunch, keeps you totally satisfied and is really easy to put together. Often times, I make breakfast burritos with a light whole wheat wrap but sometimes, I want something very hearty so I will make a crepe-like pancake with spinach, egg whites, milk and spices and stuff it with sautéed onions and peppers, cheese, and some light guacamole. Sometimes I add a scrambled egg white too!

You can fill it with whatever you like and eat it with a fork and knife if you’re a sophisticated lady, or if you’re like me, tuck it in on one end and roll it up just like a fajita and enjoy!

Ingredients |

  • 1/4 cup of Pancake/Baking Mix (I used Trader Joe’s Buttermilk Pancake and All Purpose Pancake Mix)
  • 1 cup of fresh baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup of fat free milk
  • 1 tablespoon of liquid egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder
  • Non-stick cooking spray (I use Coconut Oil Spray)

Instructions |

In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients.

Over medium-high heat, coat a skillet with a good misting of non-stick cooking spray.

The batter will be a bit thinner than traditional pancake mix. Pour carefully into the skillet, and lift and tilt the pan and move it in a circular motion to help spread the batter in a large circle.

Return to heat and wait until small bubbles form over most of the pancake. Then, using a spatula, carefully flip the pancake to cook the other side.

Remove from pan and stuff with toppings of choice. I serve mine with fresh baby spinach, crispy turkey bacon, roasted onions, peppers, and corn, light shredded cheese and light guacamole.
