These ombré pancakes are naturally dyed using berry puree. They’re free of dairy, eggs, and refined sugar, with a gluten-free variation included!
If you’re looking for a delicious and beautiful breakfast to celebrate spring or to enjoy Easter weekend, these Ombré Berry Pancakes are a must-try! They’re naturally dyed with mashed berries and fairly simple to make, aside from mixing the batter in a few different bowls. I’ve made them with regular, spelt, and gluten-free flour, and they’ve all turned out equally delicious.
The great thing is that these pancakes are not only pretty to look at, they’re really delicious too! I mean, that extra little bit of mixing has to be worthwhile, right?
This recipe is set up to make either the pink or purple ombré pancakes, but I’ve also doubled the recipe to make both colors and made a big rainbow stack, like in the picture below. Either way, they’re all berry delicious 😉 with the addition of the puree, so it’s really just a matter of choosing your favorite color. However, I will say that my kids preferred the flavor of the blueberry ones though, especially since I add a little beetroot to the pink for a more vibrant color. Even though there’s only a little, they swear they can taste it! 🙂
Just be sure not to overmix the batter. I found that the bowls of batter that I overworked came out much more chewy and flat than the pancakes I stirred just until the flour and liquid were combined—No need to get every little flour clump out!
Oh, I also made them without eggs for those with allergies and all my vegan peeps out there! 🙂 They’re also free of refined sugar! If you make these be sure to tag me on Instagram so I can see your creations! Enjoy!!Print
