Hubby’s Quinoa Pancakes

Hubby’s Quinoa Pancakes

Before we went gluten free one of our traditions was pancake sundays.  I would make
the batter and the kids would help pick the leaves off the strawberries and my husband would work on the bacon.  It was a full on family affair and I loved it.  When we went gluten free, the tradition slowed down.  One of the big reasons was that my kids were picky of their pancakes. One day on a whim, I had some leftover quinoa and decided to make pancakes with it.  From a whim…became a tradition, now every Sunday mama makes quinoa pancakes for her babies.
