Prep Time: 5 minutesCook Time:  15 minutesServings:  8 pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 2 small red beets
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
  • ¼ cup – ½ cup milk of choice (we used canned coconut milk)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • ¼ teaspoon salt 
  • 1½ cups almond flour (can substitute with all-purpose flour) 
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Special Equipment:

  • Blender

Preparation: 

  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F (200˚C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Remove stems from beets. Coat beets in a thin layer of coconut oil, about 1 tablespoon.
  3. Place beets on prepared baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork. If the fork goes through easily and smoothly, the beets are ready!
  4. Remove beets from the oven, allow to cool, and carefully remove skin. Transfer to a high-powered blender.
  5. Add ¼ cup milk and blend until smooth. Add milk up to ½ cup as needed. 
  6. To the blender, add ¼ cup coconut oil, eggs, vanilla extract, honey, and salt. Blend until smooth.
  7. Add almond flour and baking powder, and pulse until just combined. Make sure to not over-blend.
  8. In a griddle or large pan over medium heat, melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. 
  9. Pour ¼ cup batter at a time and cook for 2-4 minutes on each side, or until edges begin to turn golden.
  10. Garnish with desired toppings and enjoy!
