Perfectly Pink Beet Pancakes

After roasting and pureeing some beets, I was trying to think of different ways to use it and decided to add some to our pancake batter. I actually don't really care for beets, but these bright pink, fluffy pancakes, covered in melted butter and maple syrup, were delicious! Munchkin, who typically hates veggies, but adores all things pink, helped me make the batter and then ate six of them. Six beet pancakes- I was thrilled! Beets are full of cancer-fighting beta-carotene, fiber, iron, potassium, and folic acid, which makes these pancakes a great choice for kids and grown-ups alike! Check them out for yourself...
