Spirulina pancakes

Spirulina pancakes

Nutrition-packed pancakes with much vibrant color. When I make food, I always ask myself: "how can I pack this dish with nutrition?" And let me tell you, superfoods are the way to do that! I used Spirulina, a type of cyanobacteria (single-celled microbes that are blue-green algae).

Benefits of Spirulina

A single tablespoon of this tiny alga (7 grams) of dried spirulina powder contains:

Protein: 4 grams

Vitamin B1 (thiamine): 11% of the RDA

Vitamin B2 (riboflavin): 15% of the RDA

Vitamin B3 (niacin): 4% of the RDA

Copper: 21% of the RDA

Iron: 11% of the RDA

It also contains decent amounts of magnesium, potassium, manganese, and small amounts of almost every other nutrient you need. Spirulina is also an entertaining way to add color to smoothies and food! It also comes in blue color! 😍 (still need to find it in SA)
