Gluten-Free, Vegan Quinoa & Brown Rice Pancakes

Happy Pancake Day everyone! Today I’m going to be making my quinoa and brown rice pancakes which are gluten-free and vegan! The almond milk replaces the dairy milk and the flaxseed binds the mixture instead of the eggs!

Quinoa & Brown Rice Pancakes

Makes 6Strawberry Pancakes

75g                 Quinoa

75g                 Brown rice

1tbsp              Desiccated coconut

1tbsp              Flaxseed

1tbsp              Agave nectar

300ml             Almond Milk

300ml             Filtered Water

If you have a Vitamix blender, pour in the quinoa and rice and blend until it has formed a fine flour. Alternatively you can cook the quinoa in filtered water for 15 minutes and brown rice for 40 minutes and then place them in the blender.

Add the desiccated coconut, flaxseed, agave nectar, almond milk and water to the blender. Mix until it has formed a liquid batter.

Heat a small pan over a low heat. Pour in enough batter to form a medium sized pancake.

Cook for about 2 minutes until there are bubbles throughout the surface and you can easily peel away the pancake from the pan. Flip over and cook for another 2 minutes until golden brown. Pile the pancakes on top of each other on a plate.

Add a fruit topping of your choice such as sliced banana, strawberries or raspberries. Drizzle with agave nectar and lemon juice. Delicious served with spoonfuls of nut butter.

Serve warm and enjoy!
