These adorable heart-shaped pancakes are perfect for waking up your Valentine. And even better is the fact that they are all-naturally colored and sweetened with beet juice.


Step 1

Combine flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl.

Step 2

Whisk beet juice, milk, egg and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Add to flour mixture; stir to combine.

Step 3

Heat nonstick skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Brush with a little coconut oil. If using pancake molds, be sure to coat with a little nonstick cooking spray so the pancakes don’t stick. Place molds into skillet; pour about 3 tablespoons of batter into molds (or directly onto skillet if you aren’t using molds). Cook for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until bubbles start to form on top. Gently lift and remove molds; flip and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until bottom is lightly browned. Drizzle about 2 teaspoons of sweetened condensed milk over pancakes. Serve with your favorite toppings, if desired.

Cook’s Tips:

Fresh beet juice can be found in the produce section of your supermarket. If you would like a redder color a few drops of red food coloring can be added to the batter.

To keep pancakes warm, heat oven to 225° F. Place a wire cooling rack on a baking sheet then place the pancakes in a single layer on the rack as you make them.
