A two-ingredient pancake recipe (1 mashed ripe banana, 2 eggs) prompted experimenting with additional ingredients like homemade sourdough starter, stone ground wheat flour, gluten-free flours like buckwheat flour or coconut flour, hempseed protein powder, spirulina powder, or green superfood powder. If the mixture is too dry, I add yogurt or milk (even coconut milk) or more eggs. The recipe below is easy to make and turns out well whether the mixture is too runny or a bit on the dryer side.
Easy Quinoa Pancakes recipe was created on our recent beach trip. I received a few samples of NurturMe Protein Packed Quinoa dried baby food. These individual packets are great for on-the-go and travel. I love that the quinoa powder can be mixed into just about anything to boost protein and nutrition. Just add liquid! During our beach trip, I used the quinoa powder in the pancake batter and also added to my toddler's yogurt. The quinoa powder mixed in smoothly and I could not even tell it was in there. That is a plus in my book! I love the versatility of this powder for any age from baby to adult.
