Hello Sunshine Pancakes // via Nosh and Nourish

Ingredients

1  
small golden beet (roasted*)
3⁄4 cups
Silk Vanilla Unsweetened Cashewmilk
1 tablespoon
honey
2  
Eggs
1 cup
Pancake Mix (My favorite is Bob's Red Mill)
1 teaspoon
Baking Powder
1 tablespoon
Coconut Oil (or dairy-free butter)

Notes

*TO ROAST THE BEET: Preheat the toaster oven to 425 degrees (or a regular sized oven will work too!). Peel a small golden beet and place it on top of a square of aluminum foil. Put 1 tsp of coconut oil on top of the beet, then wrap up the sides of the foil to cover the beet. Roast for 25 minutes. Then, chop it into smaller pieces before adding it to the blender.

Instructions

  1. In a high speed blender (I love my Blendtec!), combine the roasted beet pieces, the cashewmilk, and the honey. Puree until smooth. 
  2. Pour the puree into a large mixing bowl. Then stir in the eggs and flax. 
  3. In a separate small bowl, combine the pancake mix and baking powder. 
  4. Then, stir the dry mixture into the large mixing bowl of wet ingredients. Stir until just combined. 
  5. In a large pan, over medium-low heat, melt the coconut oil. Then, pour the batter into small 3 to 4 inch circles. When pancakes start bubbling a bit and the bottom is slightly browned, flip them over. Continue cooking for a minute or two on the other side.
  6. Serve warm with syrup.
