In search of foods that aren’t a pain to clean up from the floor and little man will eat, I found this recipe for quinoa pancakes. I wanted minimal ingredients since I still need to make substitutions. These fit the bill and they are good! I’ve made them twice so far and they are very versatile.
Raspberry quinoa pancakes
First go around, I made them with raspberries. I substituted mashed bananas for the eggs and added a bunch of berries. It works better if you mush the berries a little. I used dairy free milk and sunflower seed oil instead of butter.
Little man loved them. I used a tablespoon to make baby sized pancakes. We didn’t even use maple syrup (okay, we don’t have any).
Pumpkin (spice) pancakes
I made the usual dairy free substitutions and this time, instead of banana, used pumpkin puree (1/4 a cup per egg) and a bit more baking powder to combat the density. I also put about a tsp of vanilla extract in. You also need extra liquid to thin the batter out – about 1/4 a cup I think. I ran out of quinoa flour and used rice flour for the last 1/2 cup.
Little man’s were made from this but for us parents, I added about 1/2 tsp each of cinnamon, cloves, allspice, etc. and made a berry and peach topping. Threw some raspberries, peaches, and honey in a small saucepan on the stove over low heat until cooked down.
