​Valentines Day Pancakes and Yogurt Parfait

Beet Puree Pancakes

Ditch the food coloring! Instead roast a couple of beets and puree to add to pancake mix to make red pancakes.

Pancake Mix

4 Cups all purpose flour 3 Tablespoons baking powder 2 Teaspoons baking soda 1 Teaspoon salt 3 Tablespoons sugar

To make pancakes

1 Cup mix 1 egg 1 Cup milk 1 Tablespoon melted butter or oil
Wrap beets in foil and roast at 425 degrees for an hour. Let cool pull off skin. Put beets in a food processor add water to achieve the consistency you want. Add 1/3 Cup of beet puree to the pancake mix add more to achieve the color you would like.

Yogurt Parfait with Strawberry and Granola

In a wide mouth jar or bowl add yogurt (make sure you read the ingredients to avoid added sugar and ingredients). Layer with granola of your choice. Then add berries. I used strawberries but feel free to use what you have or like.
