Chocolate Quinoa Pancakes

Ingredients:Gluten-Free-Sunbutter-Pancakes-200x150

  • 1 cup quinoa flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa
  • To add more protein, serve 1/4 cup of plain yogurt on the top of your pancakes!

Preparation:

  1. Preheat a griddle over medium low heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix until a smooth batter forms.
  3. Lightly grease your griddle with nonstick cooking spray or coconut oil. Ladle 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle and repeat until you have filled your pan. Cook the pancakes until small bubbles begin to form, about 2 – 3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 1 – 2 minutes longer until the other sides are golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and repeat until no batter remains.
  4. Serve pancakes warm with pure maple syrup (if desired).
