  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 medium beets
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted


  • Wrap beets in foil and bake 400 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours. Let cool.
  • Unwrap the cooked beets, and peel. The skin should slide right off. Slice into large pieces.
  • Put the slices in a food processor or blender with 1 1/2 cups milk puree until smooth.
  • In a large bowl combine, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add beet mixture, maple syrup and melted butter and gently stir until combined.
  • Spray, or use a small amount of oil to grease a griddle or pan.
  • Pour a small amount of batter onto the hot griddle. The small pancakes tend to turn less brown and keep the pretty pink color.
  • Cook until golden on both sides.
  • Serve with fresh fruit and syrup on top.
