Ombre GF Pancakes

Ombre Gluten Free Vegan Pancakes

I love me a good vegan pancake stack on a wet day, well, any day is good for pancakes really.

These yummy vegan, gluten free pancakes, are coloured with cooked beetroot, and topped with a beetroot stained sweet yoghurt sauce.

Beetroot is full of fibre and antioxidants, so it's great to find ways of incorporating it in to your meals.

I created the ombre effect just by blending some beetroot with a little water to get it going in a small blender, and then added it to the pancake mix in three stages. A little to get the light pink, a little more to get the medium pink, and the rest to get the dark pink. I also added a little cardamom and vanilla for a nice twist, and for those of you who worry about it tasting beetrooty, then a bit of spice and vanilla covers that up.

I obviously added a lot more of the vegan yoghurt sauce after this, but for the purposes of it not looking like a hot mess, I always add a little for the photos. You could just top with your favourite syrup.

I hope you give them a try!
