Healthy Valentine’s Day Pancakes

Healthy Valentine’s Day Pancakes

Needing a sweet, tasty yet heart friendly valentine’s day breakfast? Look no further than this delicious pancake recipe! The best part? It’s easy to make.

All you need is pancake mix, beets, milk and frozen berries! (and any ingredients the box says you would normally need). Mix up your pancake batter according to the directions.

I then blended 1 cup of frozen mixed berries, 2 cooked beets and 3 cups of almond milk (or milk of choice). Once liquefied I added the berry/beet mix into my pancake batter. And then cook the same way you normally would 🙂

I also like to throw in some flax and chia seeds, which of course are optional!

The ‘syrup’ I made by taking a cup of frozen berries and microwaving them for a minute and a half. I then just mashed the berries and poured over my stack of adorable pancake hearts.

And there you have it! The berries mask any beet flavor (although I LOVE beets) and the beets give it this beautiful rich coloring. No artificial colors needed!

Use our healthy frozen hot chocolate recipe to make a decadent drink to top off your perfect valentine’s day meal <3

Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a happy Valentine’s Day.
