Whole Wheat Quinoa Pancakes

April 26, 2013 | Breakfast,

quinoa pancakesI woke up this past Tuesday to the fourth week of spring snow storms in Colorado. I don’t mean a simple little shower that melts instantly, I mean temperatures back in the 20s and 30s and several inches of accumulation. My husband was out of town, so it was a wonderful time to stay in my sweats and mess around in the kitchen – really the only way that I tolerate winter weather anymore!quinoa pancakes cookingI went searching on Tastespotting for some ideas using quinoa (my new favorite food) and found some pancakes from Bakeaholic Mama (which was really Rachel’s recipe) that became my inspiration.quinoa pancakes cooking 1I changed things up a bit – I used whole eggs, not part whites, omitted the butter, used whole wheat flour, substituted almond milk and agave for the milk and syrup – and came up with something my own (something a bit healthier).quinoa pancakes 1Something that I might add is so good and yet so full of good for me things that this might just become my new breakfast of choice. If you have leftover pancakes, freeze them with a layer of parchment paper or wax paper between the pancakes and then reheat them in the toaster. Here’s to eating breakfast every day!

  1. Such a good use for left over quinoa!! Threw these together this morning with the quinoa left from last night and they were hearty and delicious. Subbed coconut milk for almond milk and added some toasted pecans for some nuttiness. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. […] Since pinterest is my addiction, I was lucky enough to stumble across this awesome recipe from Cooking with Michele. The only thing that I did differently was use 1 Tbsp Honey instead of 2 Tbsp Agave Nectar […]
