Banana Blueberry Multi Grain Pancakes are made with 100% whole grains. Delicious and healthy for breakfast or weekend brunch.
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.
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.
