Guiltless Quinoa Pancakes

If you’re anything like me there is nothing better than a stack of warm pancakes, topped with some fresh fruits in the morning. Back before I discovered pancakes could be a healthy breakfast I would eat an entire stack with a side of guilt. That is no longer the case thanks to the discovery of healthy recipe alternatives. Here’s a pancake recipe that’ll give you a protein kick, get your day going, and keep you full until lunch!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3/4 cup of cup white quinoa, uncooked
  • 1/8 cup of oatmeal
  • 1/8 cup of baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons maple or agave syrup
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs (If you’re vegan you can use egg substitute. Get yours here)  
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup of milk (Vegans can replace with Almond milk)
  • Rind from one lemon
  • 1 scoop Juice Plus+ Complete French Vanilla

Recipe:

  • Rinse the quinoa with cold water and cook the quinoa for 12 minutes
  • Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth
  • Grease a small frying pan with a small amount of coconut oil and cook each pancake 
  • Add syrup if desired, and your favorite fruits on top!
