I had been craving two different breakfast foods – quinoa pancakes (which I had never had before but I often find myself craving foods I’ve never tried) and coconut blueberry waffles (alternatively, which I had never had). Luckily, President’s Day gave me a chance to create the breakfast food of my dreams since Saturday and Sunday breakfasts had been oatmeal (since I assumed I was doing a long run on Saturday then truly did a long run on Sunday).
Coconut Blueberry Quinoa Pancakes
I was starving but managed these epic photos.
The quintessential pancake shot.
What you’ll need:
½ cup cooked quinoa
¼ cup egg whites
¼ cup coconut milk
¼ cup fresh blueberries
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp shredded coconut
1 tsp vanilla
¼ tsp baking powder
Use the coconut butter. Trust me.
What to do:
Heat skillet on medium heat and spray with coconut oil (or whatever you use as a non-stick spray).
Mix quinoa, coconut milk and egg whites in a bowl.
Add coconut flour, shredded coconut, vanilla and baking powder and mix well. Coconut flour has a habit of sticking together – be sure to mix all of it out.
Fold in blueberries
Pour pancake batter onto heated skittle and let cook 2-3 minutes until bottom browns and is able to flip.
Flip pancake and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
Top with whatever makes your heart flutter and enjoy.
