Make it feel like Valentine’s Day everyday!

How about with breakfast?
A dear friend of mine just started a blog full of great recipes and discussions on her fitness journey as well as a very loving and sometimes comedic look at the world of motherhood! She made a knockout batch of pancakes. I knowwww you want someee!
I think you and yours will be drooling over these pancakes!!! Omgahhh, I’m drooling ALREADY!!! Who wants to make me some????


Casey’s Chocolate Covered Strawberry Inspired Flapjacks –

cooking spray

1 1/4 cup of Aunt Jemima whole wheat blend mix

3/4 cup of milk (I use 2%)

1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1/2 cup of puree cooked beets (WHAAAAA!? Yes.)

2 drops of red food coloring (if you want them to be a deeper red, fine without it though)

dark chocolate to grate over the top

10 strawberries. cut into thick slices

fat-free reddi-whip

1. Combine all of the ingredients, except the strawberries, reddi-whip, and dark chocolate.. into a large bowl. stir until just combined. (you don’t want to over-stir or your pancakes will not puff up nicely!)

2. Spray your frying pan with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Using a 2oz ladle, begin to cook your pancakes. Pancakes should only be flipped once, so wait until you see the air bubble and craters then flip your flapjack!

3. Once you make all of your deliciously healthy valentines day colored flapjacks 😉 ,  you can begin to assemble them.  I like to put a layer of the thick cut strawberries between them, top it with whip cream and shave the dark chocolate over the top! Voilà!  🙂

This recipe will make 8 2oz flapjacks
