Vanilla Cinnamon Quinoa Pancakes
Ingredients (makes 7-8 pancakes)
1 cup quinoa flour (optional to toast quinoa in a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat just till it starts to brown and smoke a little. I usually skip this step, but some people find it gives the flour a sweeter taste)
2 tablespoons sugar (I’m pretty sweet on unrefined coconut sugar at the moment)
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk (cow’s, almond, coconute)
1 large egg
1 tablespoon oil of your choice or melted butter (yum!)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- In a large bowl, stir together the quinoa flour, dextrose, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, oil and vanilla. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir well. Batter should be creamy and smooth (not thick and puffy). If not, add a little bit more milk.
- Heat a griddle to 375 degrees F or a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add a small amount of oil. For each pancake pour a 1/4 cup of batter onto griddle. Flip when bubbles break on the surface. Cook until golden brown on the other side. Repeat with remaining batches, Serve!
