How This Nourishes Your Body
Gluten free, sugar free, flour free, full of protein, fiber and blows my pancake craving out of the water.
Pancakes are best for dinner, in my opinion. Some week nights, pancakes just hit the spot. These pancakes will hit the right spot though, the one that nourishes your body instead of making it sluggish like traditional pancakes.
Make sure to soak your quinoa overnight to neutralize the anti-nutrients. Soaking activates the sprouting process and increases the enzyme and amino acid content, thus making it twice as nutrient dense, and INCREDIBLY easier for our bodies to digest.
Adapted this recipe from the Coconut Mama and have been making these like a mad woman these days.
1. Blend soaked quinoa in food processor or blender until a wet batter is formed, 3-5 minutes.
2. Add wet ingredients and process until blended.
3. Mix dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. Add dry mix to batter and mix well.
4. Heat greased-cast iron skillet to low/medium heat.
5. Using 1/4 a cup at a time, pour batter onto skillet.
6. Cook for about two minutes or until the pancake is golden. You should see bubbles form and then pop around the edges. Flip pancake and cook for a minute or two. Top with Maple syrup, honey, or almond butter!
Thank you for this recipe! I love that it only has a few ingredients, which makes it really simple and easy to digest! I tried them for the first time and they turned out quite well! Most of the healthier pancake recipes turn out dense and gummy for me, but these had a much more delicious texture! I will need to play around with it to perfect the cooking process.. they stuck quite badly to my cast iron despite how much oil was in the pan. Again, thank you for this simple and nourishing recipe!
