  • 2 teaspoon Lion's mane extract powder 
  • 2 cups milk (vegan alternative almond milk)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup packed fresh spinach, chopped finely
  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus
  • Additional butter for cooking and serving
  • For serving: pure maple syrup or jam (optional)


  • Cast iron pan


1. Preparing The Batter

In a large bowl, thoroughly whisk the eggs and almond milk together. Toss the spinach, flour, butter, salt, and pepper before adding the organic Lion's mane mushroom powder. Allow resting for 15 minutes at room temperature.

2. Making The Pancakes

Heat a cast-iron pan, add a generous amount of butter, and let it melt in the heated pan. To the pan, add half a cup of the pancake batter.

Use a spatula to examine if the underside of the pancake is golden brown when tiny bubbles start to form on the batter's surface. If so, flip it over and cook the other side for one to two minutes. Continue until all of the batters have been used.

Additional Note:

For a gluten-free alternative, substitute cassava flour for spelt flour. If you are using dehydrated Lion's mane, soak them for 2 hours prior.

Key Takeaways

Lion's mane pancakes are a unique and delicious way to incorporate this powerful mushroom into your diet. Not only do they offer a boost of mental clarity and energy, but they're also packed with nutrients and flavor. 

Whether you're looking for a healthy breakfast option or something new, these pancakes are worth making. So next time you're in the mood for some pancakes, why not try this recipe?
