Beet is packed with essential nutrients such as fiber, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron and vitamin C. It can also help to lower blood pressure and increase blood flow, however, it’s not always easy to encourage young children to eat them. Therefore, it can work really well when they are added to recipes and offered in a fun and creative manner – showcasing their vibrant red color.
These beet pancakes were created for Valentine’s day. My children and hubby decided to roll them up and create colorful and delicious pancake skewers. They can also be served rolled up, cut into shapes or as traditional pancakes, topped with maple syrup, coconut cream, berries, crushed nuts. Or, if you prefer a savory option, top them with sour cream, grilled mushroom or grated cheese.
