I've been trying some healthy recipes lately, and this one is so unique, I had to share it!
I adapted this recipe from Self Magazine's Drop 10 diet. I've been getting a lot of great recipes from there lately.
Quinoa Banana Nut Pancakes (Serves 2)
1 cup cooked Quinoa
2 egg whites
1 whole egg
2 T brown sugar
1/2 t vanilla
Handful chopped walnuts
Wisk the Quinoa, Eggs, brown sugar and vanilla together. Add the sliced banana and chopped walnuts and stir.
Cook on a griddle about 3 minutes on each side. These babies are FRAGILE, but as with any pancake, meat or egg, it starts to release a little when it's ready to be flipped.
A few notes...
When planning to blog a pancake recipe before ever trying it, make sure to make at least 2 batches... This is what the first one will look like.
Set your griddle to "fish pancakes" setting. Wait, what? EW!
Serve this with some eggs scrambled with onions and peppers and a little cheese.
On another note, look at this awesome quickie lunch I made today... Roasted veggie pizza.
I roasted all the veggies the other day, so I can use them for anything and everything all week. I just took a tortilla, topped it with some pizza sauce, the veggies and some mozzarella cheese. Baked it on my pizza stone and there it is.
