Friday Foodie Fun - Gluten Free Quinoa Pancakes

Some of you have asked for the recipe for Quinoa Wheat Free Pancakes. These pancakes are light and fluffy and have a somewhat nutty flavor (from the quinoa)
I hope you enjoy!

  • 1¼ cup gluten free oat flour **
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cup rice flour **
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 11/2 cups buttermilk **
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  1. Mix together the oat and rice flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, buttermilk, vanilla and oil.
  3. Add the egg/milk mixture to the flour mix. Stir until just combined.
  4. Fold in quinoa.
  5. Cook on a medium-high heat griddle, about 2-3 minutes each side, or until you see the bubbles popping.

** You can make your own oat flour (I do). Use a food processor to grind down old fashioned rolled oats until they reach a course flour like consistency.  
** Start with 1/4 cup rice flour. If batter is too thin, add the rest.
** If you don't have any buttermilk on hand you can make your own adding either 1 1/2 tsp of lemon juice OR white vinegar to the measured milk and letting it stand a few minutes.
