Quick Quinoa Pancakes

I adore pancakes, but it's hard to make gluten-free, wheat-free, low fat, and enjoyable pancakes. They simply don't exist. My niece and nephew love anything sweet, and frankly, 'healthy' sugar substitutions don't match up.



However, I recently discovered sweet freedom - a natural sweetener made from 100% fruit sugars. Intrigued, I tested this out in a pancake mix I'd been playing around with, and both my niece and nephew loved them. I've used low fat, but natural, soft cream cheese in place of milk or cream, so they're healthy, and still delicious.

Quinoa makes a great substitute for oats or flour. Quinoa flakes in particular, are the perfect addition to this recipe because they puff up gently, add texture, and are naturally high in fibre.

As a grain, quinoa is the only carbohydrate which contains all nine essential proteins, which is why it has been hailed as a 'super grain'. Either way, it's a healthier alternative, and safe for little ones with coelic, or are simply intolerant to wheat.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 4 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients
1 egg
2 Tblsp quinoa flakes
2 Tblsp quark
1 banana
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tblsp sweet freedom sweetener

Required ingredients


Method
Warm a splash of olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat.

Add the banana to a bowl.



Mash the banana with a fork and mix with the quinoa flakes.



Add the quark, cinnamon, and 1 tsp of sweet freedom.



Mix together, add the egg, and finally combine to produce a pancake-like batter.



Pour the batter into the frying pan, in relatively small circles, for stackable pancakes.



Cook for about 2 minutes on one side, then flip over.



Repeat with the rest of the batter

Once cooked transfer to a plate and drizzle with a tsp of the sweet freedom.



I shaped mine in a heart because I thought it looked nice, but round or not, they're delicious.



Feel free to experiment with toppings like chopped fruit, cream, or even peanut butter.
