I realized that I have not posted a new recipe in quite a while, so I figured tonight would be as good a time as any. This recipe actually comes from Darcy, an online client of mine. The focus is on high quality, real-food pancakes, and they are fantastic! They contain the excellent grain quinoa, as well as some omega-3 eggs and fruit of choice. Have some with a nice 3-egg omelet or scramble and you hvae yourself a sweet little breakfast. Give them a shot and let me know what you think!
Darcy’s Quinoa Pancakes
- 1 1/2 cups quinoa flakes
- 3 large whole omega-3 eggs
- 6 large egg whites
- 3 T. ground cinnamon
- 2 servings of fresh fruit (berries, bananas, peaches, etc.)
I mixed the eggs in my blender (I have a basic blender, nothing fancy-schmancy) first, then added the fresh fruit (medium-sized pieces), then the cinnamon and finally the quinoa flakes.
I make this large quantity of batter at once and then I can just cook the pancakes in the morning as needed. This quantity will make about 10 small to medium-sized pancakes (like the size you would get as a side at an IHOP).
