Banana Blueberry Multi Grain Pancakes

Although I have jumped onto the sourdough train make everything with my sourdough starter including pancakes and waffles, not everyone has the patience for sourdough or always has the time. So here is a pancake recipe that is 100% whole grain and full of delicious spices. Filled with both bananas and blueberries, this is a healthy whole grain pancake that’s a fiber filled way to start the day.

Because of the high sugar content in syrup that we usually eat pancakes with, they often get a bad rap. However, compared to many common American breakfast items, pancakes are a relatively healthy option, especially made this way with whole grains and lots of fruit.

Quinoa Flour

It is not necessary to look for quinoa flour in the supermarket. I made my own by simply buzzing whole quinoa in the blender. Then pass it through a sieve just in case a few remained whole and you have quinoa flour.


Just perfect for a weekend brunch!

  2. The multigrain flours in the pancakes adds so many nutrients and fiber. It surely is a wonderful way to start the day with these pancakes.

  3. I make pan cakes with oats and whole wheat, but now I will definitely add some ground quinoa also to the mix. And Mireille, it feels so good to get back to blogging :-).

  4. We love pancakes in our home and these multi grain pancakes sound so nutritious and delicious. I would love to try this recipe some time soon for the kids.

  5. My little one is a pancake fan and would love to grab them of the screen. The pictures look very tempting, Mir. I am sure we won’t miss the egg in these pancakes.
