Nothing wrong with being sly and camouflaging veg in family favourites. This recipe allows me to get the goodness of beetroot, berries and oats all together. Beetroot gives that beautiful pink/red hue to the food which kids love!! Topped up with berries, some whipped cream & honey or maple syrup – the pancakes just taste divine. I have made these a few times now and kids didn’t have a clue about the beetroot! Was so pleased to get some fine nutrients in them.
This photo was clicked a couple of weeks ago for the Valentine theme for Foodism magazine feature, so it worked out brilliantly and just in time to post for the World Pancake Day!!! Hope you all try some and get your little ones thrilled.
