Halloween is right around the corner, making it the ideal time to whip up a spooky stack of Beetroot Pancakes topped with blackberry sauce. Hey, that’s what a cauldron is for, right?
When I was younger, I went as a witch for Halloween four times in a row. It was one of my favorite costumes and I would pretend to brew up some “magical” recipes on the stove or add tons of random spices to a large pot of water and call it my witch’s brew. Halloween is such a fun time of year, which is why I had to experiment and dream up this ghoulish tweak on a beloved breakfast staple.
These Beetroot Pancakes are soft and fluffy and pair delectably well with its velvety blackberry sauce. I used beetroot powder, which is a natural ingredient that adds dark pink and red tones, so artificial food coloring is not needed.
I also added a magical ingredient to the pancake batter: Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. I’m a big fan of this collagen powder because it’s flavorless, odorless and easily dissolves in both hot and cold liquids. It’s not only a versatile add-on, but the Collagen Peptides also help to support healthy hair, skin, nails and joints**.
Before you cast any spells this Halloween season, make sure to try out this delicious Beetroot Pancake recipe.
