Quinoa pancakes with Super-Berry sauce

Hello there, it’s Sunday again! And it’s been ages since I made pancakes for the last time on a Sunday, probably mostly because we were anxious to hit the beach in the morning or went out for brunch in a restaurant with the many guests we had been hosting over the past weeks. But today, I finally wanted to try to make some pancakes with the Quinoa flour I had bought a few weeks back. I tried Quinoa pancakes during my trip to Peru and just loved them! The dough tastes a bit more nutty than if you would make it with wheat flour, but Quinoa flour is so much healthier than wheat flour, as Quinoa is a complete proteinΒ which makes all dishes made of quinoa flour really rich in protein, but without carrying a lot of the refined carbohydrates that is found in regular flour (which eventually turns into sugar in your body later). So I assume, these should be some sort of guilt-free pancakes! Yay, even a better start into this Sunday! πŸ˜‰

Inspiration from my Peru trip

These pancakes contain following Superfoods:

  • Quinoa
  • Blueberries
  • Egg

I used the recipe from this very nice blog about natural living – and it turned out perfect! πŸ˜‰ The pancakes were fluffy and had a perfect consistency.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup Quinoa flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup milk of your choice (regular, almond, etc.)
  • 1 egg
  • Some coconut oil for frying the pancakes
  • Agave nectar to sweeten

Preparation

  • Mix the flour, the baking powder and the salt
  • Mix the vanilla extract, milk and egg in a separate bowl, mix well until the egg is well beaten
  • Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix everything well
  • In a pan heat the coconut oil, carefully bake the pancakes
  • Serve with some hot berry sauce and agave nectar on top, sprinkle with some coconut flakes if you like Β – heaven!!! Enjoy your Sunday!

      Hello Sophie, thanks again for stopping by at my blog and all the great feedback and likes! πŸ˜‰ I love your blog too!!!
      Yum, adding oat flour sounds fantastic! You are right, Quinoa flour does have quite a strong and particular taste, I can imagine the oat adds some nice sweetness to it. I will try the next time! πŸ˜‰
      Thanks & so nice to meet you! Sylvia

    I just veganized these for the kiddos for breakfast and they were a hit! Just used flax eggs and a little maple syrup instead of agave…and some coconut whipped cream…YUM!!! Of course they wanted chocolate chips instead of berries and since I didn’t have any berries I gladly obliged! Love your pictures. They really make me want to try everything.

      Thank you so much Tammi! It makes me so happy to read and hear when my recipes are being made! Great advice how to “veganize” it, I wan’t sure if the flax egg would work, got to try this too! And the coconut whipped cream sounds super yummy!! Great idea! πŸ˜‰ So glad the kids liked them!
      Love your pictures too, you have also inspired me for many recipes already, vitamin water, the healthy chocolate mousse :-)
      Thanks again for the lovely note & hugs, Sylvia

      Thank you so much! Yes, please let me know if you try them πŸ˜‰ They tasted really good too, I was surprised! They have a more distinct flavor than when you make them with wheat, so the berry sauce is also perfect with them. Thanks for stopping by today πŸ˜‰

      Thank you so much! πŸ˜‰ Yes, they are really delicious, although they taste different from the “usual” wheat pancakes, a bit nutty. But sooo good, and just knowing they are healthier than regular ones, makes them even better πŸ˜‰ Thanks so much for stopping by!
