5-ingredient Beet Pancakes
  • 4 eggs
  • ⅓ cup mashed beets
  • 3 medium bananas, mashed (1½ cup mashed)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Coconut oil - for frying
  • Toppings - maple syrup, raw honey, nut butter, jam, coconut flakes
  1. Boil the beets with the skin on until they are fork-tender. Peel the beets and mash them with a potato masher or a fork.
  2. Beat the eggs in a big bowl. Mix in the mashed beets and the mashed bananas. Add the cinnamon and the vanilla extract.
  3. Heat up a frying pan on medium heat and add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Drop spoonfuls of the pancake batter onto the heated frying pan. Do not make the pancakes too big as they will be hard to flip.
  4. Flip the pancakes when they are lightly brown on the side resting on the frying pan. Be careful as the pancakes are fragile, but not too fragile for you not to be able to flip them.
  5. After making 2 batches, drop another teaspoon of coconut oil onto the frying pan. Do this every other 2 batches.
  6. To keep the pancakes warm, place them on a plate in an oven warmed up to 170 F.
  7. Top them with your favourite toppings and enjoy!
