Fool your family Friday! - Scheduled post #4

Hey kids! Welcome to Fool Your Family Friday! PINK PANCAKES
"Take a store-bought pancake mix, fortify it with grated apple, a little beet puree and some ricotta cheese - it's a full-protein meal"

Here's what you need
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup beet puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup pancake mix
1/2 cup grated apple
nonstick cooking spray
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
maple syrup and fruit for serving
  1. In a blender, combine the water, ricotta cheese, beet puree, vanilla and cinnamon.
  2. Pour mixture into a bowl and add pancake mix and apple. Just stir until combined.
  3. Coat a griddle or skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon batter using about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake.
  4. Serve warm with syrup and/or fruit.

    It's day four in Hawaii for me and I hope these posts are going up as scheduled!
    Thanks for coming by. Be sure to check back tomorrow because I'll have Lauren's new sketch. She was nice enough to forward them to me early so I could still play along. Thanks Lauren!
