Deceptively Delicious Pink Pancakes

Maybe we will try these for breakfast tomorrow.

Jessica Seinfeld (along with a nutritionist) has come up with some recipes to add nutrients to the food we already  eat.

Prep : 10 minutes

Total : 13-15 minutes

Serves : four little children

3/4 cup water

1/2 cup ricotta cheese (maybe using cottage cheese)

1/4 cup beet puree

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 cup pancake mix

1/4 cup grated apple

nonstick cooking spray

1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil (I will probably use butter)

pure maple syrup or fruit, for surving

1) In a blender or food processor, combine the water, ricotta cheese, beet puree, vanilla, and cinnamon and blend.  Dump the mixture into a medium bowl, add the pancake mix and apple, and stir until just combined.  Do not over mix – the batter will be a little lumpy.

2) Coat a griddle or large skillet with cooking spray and set it over medium-high heat.  When hot, add the oil.  Spoon the batter onto the griddle or skillet, using about 1/4 cup batter fore each pancake.  Cook the pancakes until bubbles form on top and the batter is set, 1 to 2 minutes.  Then flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook until golden brown on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes.  Serve warm, with syrup or fruit.
