Red Velvet Pancakes


It took me many tries to achive these pancakes. I played with the flour and sugar in order to get the ideal color. At first, I used brown sugar with white rice flour and another with whole wheat flour but I did not succeeded. The rice flour textue was hard although I added a bit of coconut oil and their where more a pink color. The whole wheat flour did not took the red color. So I went with the white sugar and whole wheat flour. Instead of vanilla, I used coconit essence beacuse it has a delicious and unique flavor and it is white. If I used vanilla, the pancakes’ color will be affected. It was a whole chemistry laboratory!


Red velvet cake consist of a delicate chocolate flavor, red color and lots of frosting usually made of cream cheese ot buttercream. These pancakes are better than a cake! They are fluffy, sweet, chocolaty and most important, healthy and fun to do! Their color come from the blend of beets and strawberries.


I added a piece of Dagoba dark chocolate (that would be about 1T of dark chocolate chips).


As a frosting, I used cottage cheese, but greek yogurt will also be awesome. Finally, I topped the red velvet pancakes with toasted almonds, coconut and rasberries.
