Plus beets have tons of vitamins and nutrients and have been said to help aid in lowering blood pressure. So surprise your sweetheart with breakfast in bed with these scrumptious, healthy pancakes!

How do you make beet pancakes?

First, peel and cut your beets into small wedges. The smaller the better, for quicker cooking, but they will be blended later, so don’t worry about uniform pieces. Cover them with water in a small sauce pan and boil until fork tender. Drain them and add to a high speed blender (I use my Vitamix) along with all remaining ingredients, and process until smooth. This will take about 2-3 minutes.

Heat your non stick griddle, and pour roughly 4″ pancakes directly from your blender spout. Cook for 3-5 minutes until bubbles form on top and edges are golden.

Then flip your pancakes and cook for a few more minutes until cooked through. If your batter gets too thick while cooking the first batch, add a tablespoon or two of water to thin out the batter as needed.

  • 2 small beets peeled & cut into small wedges
  • 1 cup quick cooking steel cut oats or rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or plant milk of choice


  • Add you cut beets to a small sauce pan covered in water and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook your beets until fork tender, about 20-30 minutes, depending on how small you cut your beets.
  • Drain your beets and add them to your blender along with all remaining ingredients and process on high until puréed and smooth.
  • Preheat your nonstick griddle to ensure it is hot before cooking your pancakes. Once hot, pour the batter directly from your blender spout onto your hot surface to make your pancakes approx 4" in diameter. (Grease your griddle if necessary.) Cook for 3-5 minutes, until bubbly on top and golden around the edges. Then flip and cook an additional 3-5 minutes until cooked through.
  • Enjoy with maple syrup, unsweetened shredded coconut, dark chocolate chips, or fresh fruit.


Don't let the batter sit long as it starts to thicken as it rests. If batter gets too thick in between cooking batches, add a tablespoon or two of water or almond milk to the blender and give it a quick whirl before starting to cook your next batch of pancakes.
