Ingredients:

  • 2 cups quinoa flour
  •  2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons of light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, plus more for cooking

 Instructions:

Whisk the quinoa flour, baking powder, brown sugar, and cinnamon together. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, oil, eggs and vanilla extract until thoroughly combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until blended. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and grease them.

Dispense the batter to skillet/griddle in ¼ cup scoops, and cook until golden brown, for 2-3 minutes. Turn the pancake using a spatula and cook the opposite side for another 1-2 minutes. Serve warm with syrup and feel free to top it with banana slices. Yum!
