Tasty Tuesday - Quinoa pancakes

Posted by Claudia Moser on 7:33 AM in , ,
You might discover a pattern here, yes I am in the pancakes mood and thought that quinoa would also be a wonderful ingredient for this delicious desert :)

I found this recipe at Martha Stewart's website:


1 cup cooked quinoa or brown rice
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1 large egg, plus 1 large egg white
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted, plus more for skillet
1/4 cup low-fat milk
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, plus more for serving
Fresh fruit or fruit preserves (optional), for serving


In a medium bowl, whisk together quinoa, flour, baking powder, and salt. In another medium bowl, whisk together egg, egg white, butter, milk, and syrup until smooth. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and whisk to combine.

Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with butter and heat over medium-high. Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls into skillet. Cook until bubbles appear on top, 2 minutes. Flip cakes and cook until golden brown on underside, 2 minutes. Wipe skillet clean and repeat with more melted butter and remaining batter (reduce heat to medium if overbrowning). Serve with maple syrup and fresh fruit or preserves if desired.



It's only 9.50 a.m. here as I type this, but those pancakes are making me feel really hungy. I love your recipe posts! Have a good week my friend.

@Diane - glad you enjoyed it :)

I think my family would like these. Could use the batter to make waffles. My son has been bugging me for some waffles, so maybe I'll make some later this week. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

@Susanne - I love quinoa, and the pancakes were delicious, I guess waffles sounds also good :)

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
