This a healthy gluten free recipe loaded with fiber, protein and minerals as quinoa is one of the main ingredients. Quinoa is a well know  and almost ‘trendy’ superfood, high in anti-oxidants and various nutrients helping to fight against signs of ageing and many diseases. Apart from feeding the body with natural goodness, quinoa also helps to shed that extra weight.

The cinnamon and vanilla work well together creating highly flavoursome pancakes. Cinnamon is a delicious spice that is known for its medicinal properties, as it is rich in anti-oxidants and used to fight inflammation, as well as being linked to a healthy heart and lowering blood sugar.

  2. Add the sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt to the toasted quinoa flour and mix together. In a seperate bowl, whisk the milk, egg, oil and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir well. This should create a smooth creamy batter. If the batter is a little thick, you can add more milk.

  3. Heat a non stick pan or skillet over medium heat. With coconut oil. Use 1/4 cup of batter and pour onto pan for one pancake. Cook until the batter starts to bubble and then flip. Be careful, as gluten free pancakes are slightly more fragile than regular batter. Cook until both sides are golden brown. Repeat until the remaining batter is finished.
