For those of us who know that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day is that lately I’ve tried to innovate and create new and simple recipes. It’s clear that most of the time we do not have the time to do something very elaborate.
That’s why I thought of looking for different flavors in pancakes, which are generally so much liked by everyone. And the best of all is that you can prepare them the night before, and the next day you just have to heat them in the microwave oven for 20 seconds, and you are all set.
The novelty of this recipe is mainly about two things: first, the fact of using quinoa for the elaboration of the pancake; and second, I didn’t use any type of milk, but instead I used Silk® Almond Creamer to give them the right consistency and an unsurpassed flavor.
For this, during the week I went to Walmart to do my usual shopping, and on the dairy section is where I was able to find Silk® Almond Creamer, where you can find 3 delicious flavors: Hazelnut, Vanilla and Caramel.Print
- 1 cup of cooked quinoa
- 1 cup of Silk® Hazelnut Almond Creamer
- 1 cup of whole wheat flour
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons of brown sugar or other sweetener
- ½ teaspoon of baking powder
- Cooking spray
- 1 cup of strawberries or other berry
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
- In a bowl, mix the quinoa, Silk® Hazelnut Almond Creamer, wheat flour, eggs, 2 teaspoons of brown sugar and baking powder.
- Form a homogeneous batter mixture.
- Then, in a non-stick frying pan, place some cooking spray and cook 1/3 cup of the pancake batter. Cook 2 minutes per side over medium low heat.
- To prepare the sauce, on a saucepan just add some strawberries (each cut in 4 pieces), along with 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and a little water. Cook for about 4 minutes.
- * You can also set aside some fresh strawberries for garnish on top.
The good thing about using Silk® Almond Creamer is that it’s free of lactose and gluten, which makes it great not only to create recipes like the one I present here today, but also to use it daily in the coffee.
My husband was fascinated with the taste that Silk® Hazelnut Almond Creamer gave to his coffee, of course, since it really tastes so delicious.
