You might question, or even turn up your nose at the thought of quinoa pancakes, but you shouldn't until you have tried them! They are delicious, and with the addition of quinoa, they become quite good for you and provide an excellent way to get your day started (or close out your day is you are one who occasionally likes to eat breakfast for dinner!). While many people think of quinoa as a whole grain, it actually is not but is rather a seed and carries some great nutrient properties not shared by some other whole grains. For example, the protein in quinoa is a complete source and there is a good amount of it in quinoa. It also provides a decent amount of calcium and iron, as well as dietary fiber. So when this healthy ingredient is added to ordinary pancakes, they become super healthy. Plus, there is not much more to making quinoa pancakes than there is to making ordinary pancakes, so go ahead and give them a try.

First you will need to gather together the ingredients.

For this quinoa pancake recipe, you will need:

3/4 cup all purpose flour

1 Tbsp granulated sugar

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup cooked quinoa

2 egg whites, beaten

1/4 cup lowfat buttermilk

1/4 cup lowfat milk

1 Tbsp canola oil
