quinoa

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:

Delicious!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 to 2 cups of cooked quinoa

2 eggs

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!
