Like smoothies, pancakes are another great place to sneak nutrients into your little one’s diet. Here’s a recipe for the upcoming holiday that incorporates the dreaded, but oh-so-nutritious beet. You can cook and puree many beets at once and then freeze the puree in ice cube trays to have on hand. Serve with homemade, sugar-free whipped cream (recipe at the bottom) and optional carob chips for a yummy Valentine’s Day breakfast treat.

Combine all wet ingredients (except apple) in a blender and dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the wet to the dry ingredients and then grate the apple directly into the bowl and stir to combine. If the mixture seems too dry add a bit more water. Cook like a pancake and serve with fruit and whipped cream or real maple syrup.
1 C heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp minimally processed stevia
