These tender Quinoa Almond Pancakes are perfect when you’re craving comfort food but want something a little bit healthy.
I’m always trying to sneak in healthy ingredients for my kids, so on one recent snow day, I whipped up these Quinoa Almond Pancakes for breakfast. I had cooked quinoa from the night before (I always make extra cooked grains so I can throw them into whatever I think of) so making these pancakes was easy.
My kids are not big fans of quinoa. They just don’t like the texture or the taste, so I pureed the quinoa and pancake ingredients in a blender until it was nice and smooth.
These are tender pancakes and a real treat when you’ve got a hankering for something special for breakfast – a great way to fill up your tummy with all sorts of goodness. Top with some fresh berries or caramelized bananas for something extra special.
I had a little fun learning how to make this gif for you all. Cool right?! Have a great day and remember…Choose To Be Happy!
