Pancakes are the ultimate breakfast, they are basically dessert but it's socially acceptable to have them as breakfast! What is better than dessert for breakfast? Nothing! This recipe is not only as good as traditional pancakes, it's even better. This egg-free, dairy-free pancake mix is so good that everyone will ask for more. As if pancakes are not already cool enough, we made them even cooler by adding some beet and making them a beautiful pink color to go along with our pink month campaign to support breast cancer.

- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup (around 2 scoops) Sun Pyramid's Raw Vegan Protein
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp Sun Pyramid's chia seeds
- ⅓ cup almond milk
- ½ medium beet, roasted and peeled
- 1 tbsp agave syrup
- 1-2 tbsp coconut oil
- Place ½ medium beet in foil and roast it in the oven for about 1 hour at 350F (180C). Let cool and peel.
- In a large bowl, combine flour. protein powder and baking powder. Mix together.
- In a small bowl, prepare a chia egg: combine 2 tablespoons of Sun Pyramid Health chia seeds and 6 tablespoons of water. Mix well and set aside for about 10 minutes to thicken.*
- In a food processor, puree the beet with almond milk. You will get a lovely pink color. Add the flax seed egg and combine together.
- Make a well in the middle of your flour and protein mixture. Pour the wet mixture into the well, stirring continuously until combined. Do not over-mix the batter.
- Heat up a skillet over medium heat, and lightly grease the surface of the skillet with a tiny amount of coconut oil (or other vegetable oil).
- Pour about 3 tablespoons of batter for each pancake. Let them cook for about one minute or two, and flip them over, cooking the other side.
- Top with pomegranate and/or berries of your choice, and generously pour some maple syrup.
*For your information, 1 tablespoon of ground chia seeds mixed with 3 tablespoons of water is a vegan alternative to one egg.
