Beet Pancakes


I know, I know but before you run for the door hear me out.ย  As you know I am always on a mission to incorporate more veggies into my babies diets. They are very good eaters honestly but Beets are a tough one even for the most forgiving palate. I personally do not like Beets in any form I have ever had them in. I remember them being a pickled unwanted garnish on salads at every Latino Restaurant I went to in the Bronx.

I found the recipe on Weelicious and I was intrigued and a little nervous I must admit. I have to say they were a hit with my little man, little lady was not as bowled over but I think they are worth giving a try. The taste of Beets is barely detectable and with a little syrup you will forget all about it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Hi Nicole,
    Such a wonderful idea to introduce beets like this! And who could refuse little pink hearts like that? My daughters would sure love them, so I might try these out!
    I usually make chocolate muffins with beets and they love them, but of course they don’ t know there are vegetables in them :-)!

    • Hi Marian

      Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you and your lovies are all well. I hope you enjoy the recipe. I would love to try out the idea of chocolate muffins with beets. Thanks for sharing.

      Take care,

  2. So cute, I love that you cut them into heart-shapes too, they would be perfect for Valentine’s Day!
