Quinoa Pancakes (Gluten-Free Clean Eating)

Pancakes are one of the hardest dishes to master when you have any dietary restrictions (at least for me it is).¬†One of the best reasons to enjoy Quinoa is because it has a high-protein content, which makes it a great cholesterol-free and low-fat source of protein. 1 cup of cooked Quinoa contains 8.14 grams of protein. It is also Gluten-Free, which makes it great for people with Celiac’s disease or those who are gluten intolerant.

I don’t use any sweeteners in this recipe, however, feel free to add any sweeteners that you would like. If you’re clean eating, you can add a desired amount of flavored whey protein powder (again, keep in mind that Quinoa is packed with protein, so you don’t want to over do it.)

 

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups cooked Quinoa

3/4 cup Almond Milk

3/4 cup Egg Whites

3 teaspoons Baking Powder

Sweetener *OPTIONAL*
