Beet Pink Velvet Pancakes

Getting your veggies in at breakfast with these delicious beetroot pancakes!

I know what you're thinking, beetroot in pancakes for breakfast with fruit? No way! YES WAY! I am a huge lover of beetroot as it's actually very versatile, I've had it in overnight oats before and it was so tasty. But in pancakes it's even better and yes it can be sweetened up!You can't even taste the beetroot and if it wasn't for the beautiful colour it brings, you wouldn't even know it's in there :) Adding beetroot to pancakes is a really clever way of getting an extra portion of vegetables in, and along with the fruit, it's a great breakfast to have if you have an extra bit of time in the morning and I for one LOVE starting my day with pancakes.

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Serves: 13 pancakes - odd number I know!


1 ½ cooked beetroots
75g Porridge oats
1½ tbsp Chia seeds
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1 tsp Baking powder
240ml Soya milk
1 tsp Bioglan Superberry powder optional
50 -150g Soya yoghurt
1 tsp Bioglan Superberry powder 
Mixed frozen berries


✿Simple add all of the ingredients together in a blender or food processor and blitz into a smooth batter. Leave to sit for 5 minutes to thicken up.
✿Heat a large non-stick frying pan and then add spoonfuls of the batter into the pan to heat. I did about 2 tbsps of batter per circle and got 3 pancakes into my pan at a time.
✿Fry for about 1-2 minutes on one side until bubbles start to appear on the surface then flip them over to fry on the other side. You can add a little bit of oil if you like, but I try to not use as much oil in my recipes.
✿Once the other side is cooked remove from the pan and place on a plate. Repeat the process with the remaining batter until finished.
✿To make the topping, simply mix the yoghurt with the superberry powder until smooth and it has turned pink! Stack your pancakes and then dollop the yoghurt on top finishing with some frozen berries. Best eaten right away, but any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for a couple of days. Enjoy!
