This is one of my new favorite recipes for my favorite meal of the day. I like to make different kinds of pancakes and my old favorites are Red Beet Pancakes and Pumpkin Pancakes and just recently I’ve been making a lot of quinoa pancakes.
I researched a lot of different recipes and couldn’t find one that was just what I was looking for so I ended up making my own recipe. I didn’t want to use quinoa flour and I didn’t want whole quinoa so I created a recipe that blends cooked quinoa in with the rest of the ingredients and here’s how the final product came out:
1 1/2 to 2 cups of cooked quinoa
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
3 tablespoons melted butter
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Blend the first three ingredients in a blender and then add the remaining ingredients and mix. Spoon onto a hot griddle or pan and flip when you see lots of bubbles. Enjoy with maple syrup or molasses!
