I mean, am I funny or WHAT?! And if you say “or what” then BEET it…🤣🤣🤣 ok ok ok I’m done, I promise.
Ah pancakes. Let me count the ways that I love you… not really, that would be annoying. But I will tell you that one of the reasons is all the good, nutrient dense stuff you can hide in there, like beets! Pancakes are an awesome vessel for that. Once you have a base recipe down with the flours, milks, eggs ratio that works for you- it’s so easy to tweak from there! Take this recipe for example. Here is my base pancake recipe I use because it works for us:
3/4 c oat or whole wheat flour
1/4 c almond flour
2 tbsp coconut flour
1tsp psyllium husk powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1tbsp organic evap cane juice
Looks a lot like this:
Then I just mix my wet ingredients in a blender:
1/2c milk (I usually use Califia Farms almond)
1/8 c liquid coconut oil
And in this case, I added 3 steamed then cooled BEETS. Looked something like this:
And voila! They’re ready to go on the griddle!
*note: you can totally add more wet/dry ingredients to make it the consistency you want, or if you’re at a different altitude etc. it won’t mess the final product up- I promise!
I had a hair to do heart shaped pancakes (I wonder why… 🤔) and just used a spoon. Just spoon a fat diagonal line, grab a bit more batter and create that second little heart bump. Free form and pretty darn rustic, but hey! I liked them 😃😃.
Especially once I topped them with alllll ze goods. Again- great canvas for more goodness! I’m really digging the beet/raspberry/coconut combo so I went with that. And added chocolate because well… DUH, chocolate!
