Quinoa Chia Pancakes

By April 17, 2016April 3rd, 2018No Comments

Sunday morning means relaxing, with a delicious breakfast and a cup of (herbal for me) tea. This Sunday morning I decided to make a new recipe for gluten and dairy free pancakes; I wanted to make a recipe that is delicious and fairly low in carbs, but a source of balanced protein and fat- and voila these quinoa chia pancakes were whipped up!

I had these pancakes with blueberries and pure Vermont maple syrup (no fake stuff, ever!)- but you can enjoy these with whatever toppings you prefer!
