Quinoa Pancakes

Posted on

Pancakes are the best breakfast food on the weekends, well during the week, too. It just depends on how much time you have in the AM. I am a morning person and so making pancakes on a Tuesday is no biggie. If you need that extra time in the morning for yourself, save making these pancakes until a day that starts with a “S”. What I like most about pancakes are how nice and filling they can be. They also can be sweet or savory. I am a sweet kinda pancake girl, go figure. Who else is with me on that one?

Here’s a way to add more protein to your pancakes….QUINOA! Yup, it’s another ingredient you might not have thought about using for breakfast, but it works.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp raw sugar
  • 1/2 tsp flax seeds
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • syrup, blueberries, coconut, sliced banana to sprinkle on top

Directions:

  1. Mix together all ingredients in bowl.
  2. Over medium heat, pour batter – will make 4 medium pancakes.
  3. Flip once when bubbles appear.
  4. Enjoy with syrup, blueberries, coconut, or sliced banana on top.
