Pink Pancakes

My kids love sweet pancakes. So, I keep trying to make pancakes with added nutrition and flavors. I decided that this time I will change color of the pancakes. When my son saw the pancakes, his reaction was - "pink pancakes?? What??" When they ate it, they liked the pancakes. When I asked my younger one - "What color pancakes you want next time?" He said - "Blue!!"
Pink Pancake (Beetroot Pancake)
1 cup Brown Rice Flour
1 Egg
1/4 cup Beetroot Puree (See Notes Below)
1 tsp Flaxseed Meal
1 cup Almond Milk
1 tbsp Honey
  1. In one medium sized bowl, beat the egg. Mix beetroot puree and milk in it.
  2. Add rice flour, flaxseed meal and honey to the mix and make it a smooth batter.
  3. Add more milk or more rice flour to make batter thick enough to make pancakes. Put the batter aside for 15 minutes.
  4. Heat the non-stick pan and spread pancake batter on the pan. Put a little oil and cook the pancake both sides.
  5. Serve hot with honey or jam.
Notes - To make beetroot puree, I chopped beetroot in very small pieces and steamed it for 10 minutes. When it is soft, I blend all pieces in blender to make puree.
