These-Can’t-Be-Beet Pancakes [Paleo, Gluten free, Grain free, Dairy free] 

Looking for a great morning treat? Or maybe a special something for your special someone this Valentine’s Day? 😉 Then you’ve got to try these UH-MAAAAZING paleo choc-beet pancakes!

Moment of truth – I will profess to all kinds of independence from all things hearts and flowers, however, when it comes down to it, I am a hopeless romantic at heart (shhhhhh damnit! Don’t tell anyone!). So with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I wanted to create a completely indulgent treat  that’s rich, dark, and DELICIOUS 😋😋😋 

With some beets and choc, you can’t really go wrong. So drawing from a few of my recipes, I decided pancakes would be best as they’re quick, easy, hassle free, and look so goooood! Plus, when experimenting leads to eating, pancakes are always best as the batch is small and I don’t feel like I need to eat cake daily! 

These pancakes are beyond decadent – I’m not even exaggerating. They are light, fluffy, yet so moist and rich all at once. I don’t really understand it, all I know is that they taste so darn good! Dress them up for something fancy schmancy, or keep it simple and just enjoy.
