Directions

These cozy and aromatically spiced quinoa apple cider pancakes are guaranteed to make your day! The list of their ingredients is also impressive: quinoa - along with naturally gluten-free almond and oat flour - makes these fluffy pancakes rich in protein and soft in texture. Apple cider, deliciously paired with cinnamon, is known for its antimicrobial, hypoglycemic, and weight-loss effects in the body. It also readily shares its autumn flavors, making these quinoa pancakes a wonderful healthy breakfast idea for the upcoming weekend.

  1. Place the oats and almonds in a blender and process until finely ground. Transfer to a large bowl.(2 minutes)
  2. Add the quinoa flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Mix.(2 minutes)
  3. Mix in the eggs, milk, oil, and apple cider.(2 minutes)
  4. Lightly grease the skillet or griddle. Pour about 4 tablespoons worth of batter onto the skillet and cook for about 2 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Repeat with the remaining batter.(10 minutes)
  5. Top as desired and enjoy!

To top your quinoa apple cider pancakes as shown on the photo, heat up 1 tablespoon of coconut oil with 1 tablespoon of honey in a small skillet. Add the banana slices and fry for a few minutes until brown on both sides and coated in a thick sauce. Garnish with crushed walnuts and honey or maple syrup and enjoy!

You may also give other toppings a try, including plain or coconut yogurt; apple, strawberries, or mango; and pecans, cashews, or almonds.
