Brown Quinoa Pancakes

This recipe was created by Food Sorcery chef and kitchen maverick Jan Cron. A tender, soft and delicious recipe  as close to regular pancakes as it gets!

Ingredients – Serves 1

  • 150g cooked brown quinoa (50g uncooked)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp of fat of your choice (I used coconut oil)


  1.  Blend the quinoa, eggs, honey and cinnamon until it resembles smooth, slightly thicker, pancake batter.
  2. Fry in a non-stick pan for about a minute on each side.
  3. Serve straight away with any topping of your choice.

Food Sorcery Tips

– To save time cook the quinoa the night before.

– By skipping the honey and vanilla, you have a great savoury replacement to naan bread or even wraps, if cooked thinly enough

– Me and my family love them with Greek yoghurt, almond butter and blueberries.
