I was going to title this recipe “Honey Blueberry Quinoa Pancakes,” but that immediately made me think of Honey Boo Boo…which is why I did not. Anyway, that’s my story. Now on to the yumminess. I often make quinoa in large batches and keep it in the fridge to throw into recipes. When it came time for a hearty post-workout breakfast this morning, I was in the mood for pancakes. So, I decided to experiment with the quinoa. Then I wanted blueberry pancakes. And so the Blueberry Honey Quinoa Pancakes were born. And thank goodness they were because they will now be a breakfast staple in the OHH kitchen. I think you’re going to like them too.
Ingredients: (makes one large pancake)
- 1/2 cup plain cooked quinoa
- 1 egg (sub 1/2 mashed banana or more applesauce for vegan)
- 3 tablespoons almond milk
- 2 tablespoons applesauce
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 1 teaspoon raw honey
- dash of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Heat up your pan and coat with a thin layer of coconut oil or non-stick spray. Pour mixture and flip when ready. Voilà! Top pancake with your favorites. I used almond butter, more blueberries, and maple syrup. YUM.
