Pure Maple Syrup with Pancakes

Posted by Picasa

Quinoa Pancakes

1 1/2 cups quinoa flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. Vitamin C crystals
3 Tbsp. olive oil
2 cups water or fruit juice

Mix together flours, baking soda, salt, and vitamin C crystals. Combine the oil with water or juice and wire whisk them together. Create a well in the flour mixture. Add the liquid and stir together. Bake pancakes on hot griddle until dry on top and browned on the bottom. Turn and cook the second side.

Serve with pure maple syrup. Garnish with something colorful and pretty like an orange wedge, banana slices, or fresh strawberry. Enjoy!

Makes 2 dozen pancakes.


  1. Where do you find Vitamin C crystals? Could they be substituted with anything else?


  2. They can be purchased at most health food stores. It's quite inexpensive and helps provide lighteness and puff in baked products. You could grind up a regular Vitamin C capsule and use it or possibly add some lemon juice. Not too much to affect the flavor, though!
