Quinoa Pancake Recipe Posted on 14 Aug 09:47

Giving up on gluten and processed carbs doesn't mean giving up on delicious, nutritious food. This recipe for Quinoa Pancakes gives you a flavourful alternative to your typical nutrient-absent morning pancakes.

You'll need:

  • 1 cup Quinoa Flour
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 cup Milk (or alternative - soy milk, rice milk, almond milk, hemp milk)
  • 1 egg (or substitute - 1 tbsp milled flaxseed + 3 tbsp water)
  • Optional: 1/2 Banana, 1/2 cup blueberries

Step 1 - Add wet ingredients to small bowl and slowly mix flour

If adding the banana, mashing it before adding it in helps it mix.

Step 2 - Mix until clumps disappear, let it sit for 3 minutes

Step 3 - Heat over medium-high heat, add coconut oil and reduce heat to medium

You can use butter instead of coconut oil, but the coconut adds a nice touch of flavour.

Step 4 - Pour mixture into pan, creating a thin layer

You don't want to make it too thick, or the outside will overcook before the inside is done. This is roughly 1/2 the height of the blueberries.

Step 5 - Flip pancake when bubbles begin appearing and edges brown

Step 6 - EAT!

Bonus points if you use Canadian Maple Syrup.

These pancakes turned out better than anything that ever came from a grocery store, and are healthy to boot!

Hope you enjoy!
