Quinoa-Oat Pancakes

Introduction: Quinoa-Oat Pancakes

About: Freelance mechanical engineer from the Bay Area.

One morning I was in the mood for pancakes, but didn't really feel like eating some mysterious powder from a box. I came up with this recipe by randomly combining some of my favorite health foods, and the result turned out pretty tasty!

Indigents: (makes 6 or more 4" pancakes)
1/2 cup uncooked organic quinoa
1/2 cup oats
3/4 cup un-sweeeted almond milk
1 Tbs. chia seeds
3 egg whites
2 tsp. baking powder
optional mix-ins like fruit (I added banana)
cooking spray (I used olive oil)

Directions:
In a coffee grinder or food processor, grind up your quinoa and oats into a flour. Sift into a mixing bowl with baking powder. Beat the egg whites and add them and the almond milk into the dry ingredients. Stir until well combined. Stir in chia seeds. If you want, cut up some fruit into little chunks and add them into the batter.

Heat a small non-stick pan on low-medium heat. Apply some cooking spray and add several spoonfuls of batter to the pan. Spread the batter around so it forms a 4-5 inch circle. Flip the pancake when the bottom begins to brown. Serve warm with sugar-free maple syrup or greek yogurt, or just enjoy them plain!

    I've made these a couples times now, somtimes leaving out the chia or adding chocolate chips for those that need a little more convincing, and they work out great! Thanks for the recipe

    These sound great! I think it would really draw people in if you would put a picture of the pancakes first!
