Oatmeal Applesauce Quinoa Pancakes

The other morning, Delilah woke up talking about pancakes. I hate cooking up our favorite locally made pancake mix when her father's not home to enjoy them with us, so I whipped up these pancakes using some things I had on hand. The Quinoa was pre-cooked, which kept the prep time very quick, less than 10 minutes. I'm enjoying having some plain cooked quinoa on hand to incorporate in different ways, and these pancakes are something I'll try again. This recipe yields about 8-10 dense 4-5" pancakes and gets you from awake to pancakes in less than 20 minutes.



What You'll Need:

  • 1 Cup oats
  • 1 Cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 Cup cooked Quinoa
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Pancake-cooking-substance-of-choice (I use coconut oil)
  • Pancake topping(s) of choice (I kept it simple with maple syrup)

What You'll Do:

  • Start heating a tablespoon of coconut oil (or cooking substance of choice) in the pan that you make pancakes in over Medium-High heat. 
  • Whir all the ingredients up in the blender. 
  • When you deem the oil ready to cook pancakes in, pour the batter in small amounts, gently spread the batter around a bit to thin out to 4-5 inches. 
  • Flip when edges start to bubble (about 2 minutes), cook until other side is lightly browned (about 2 minutes).
  • Serve hot with a drizzle of maple syrup or your favorite pancake toppings!

  1. Great idea about blending it up! I like the right texture, but the kids definitely don't.
