Chia Beetroot ‘Pink’-cakes

Recipe Chia Beetroot 'Pink'-cakes


This is another recipe from heaven.

I was never a big fan of the traditional pancakes as I thought they were too “doughy” and always made me feel quite full … But since I have been trying this new diet, I thought I should be open-minded and try something completely new… And isn’t life all about trying new things? It is indeed!

So this is the perfect lazy Sunday breakfast / brunch recipe. I truly loved it. My sister caught me in the kitchen whilst I was stuffing myself with a three layered pancake and actually questioned if I was eating all of that by myself… The answer was obviously ‘YES!’ but I was happy to share it with her…  “Sharing is caring” after all… And that’s exactly what Comidamor stands for – food made with LOVE for the ones you LOVE! She loved them as well and I had to repeat the recipe the next morning… (I must confess: I didn’t mind at all!).

These pancakes are ‘fluffyliciously’ pink due to the naturally infused colours from the beetroots. They are also naturally dairy, egg and gluten-free.

What’s not to like?

Oh… by the way… as a topping I used a super delicious Maple Syrup my brother-in-law just brought me from Canada. Thanks bro xx.
