Pancakes are a hearty and filling breakfast idea that can often include unhealthy ingredients, however these superfood quinoa pancakes are filled with lighter and more wholesome foods making them a great nutritious breakfast to opt for.

Quinoa is a protein-rich grain that is ideal for anyone looking to enhance the flavor, nutrient content and weight of their meal. These pancakes feature one cup of cooked quiona added to flour, egg whites, unsalted butter, low fat milk and baking soda. The mixture binds together like a normal pancake batter save for the quinoa flakes that retain their round shape and add a dense texture. The pancakes can then be topped with sliced seasonal fruit for added natural sweetness and syrup if preferred.
