  • 1½ cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 2 large beets
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar or stevia to taste
  • 2 heaping tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
Walnut Whipped Cream
  • 2 cups walnut halves and pieces
  • 1 cup soy, almond or hazelnut milk
  • stevia to taste
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. Puree the beets with the almond milk in a food processor. Mix in a large bowl with the vanilla extract and vinegar.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients. Add to wet mixture, and mix until a smooth batter consistency… you may need to add milk or some flour as needed.
  3. Heat a skillet greased with a bit of cooking oil until a droplet of water immediately sizzles and evaporates. Using a ladle, drop some batter on the skillet and let sit until bubbles reach the surface and pop.
  4. Use a spatula and carefully flip the pancake and let it cook on the other side. Remove, stack, make more, and eat!
