Healthy Red Velvet Pancakes

foodmeanderings.com

These Natural and Healthy Red Velvet Pancakes with Sweet Chocolate Cream Cheese Butter have no dye/no food coloring, but pureed CANNED beets instead. They are quick, easy and healthy. And although they are perfect any time of the year, if you use a heart shaped cookie cutter, they make the perfect Valentine's Day Breakfast or brunch (and can be made ahead and frozen)!

Natural, no dye red velvet pancakes made with beets.
