Banana Quinoa Pancakes

Recipe by: Our Simply Natural Life

Yields: Approx. 20 4″ pancakes


4 bananas
5 eggs
2 cups quinoa, cooked
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat griddle to medium-low heat (I set my griddle to 250°). Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until mixed thoroughly. Pour batter onto preheated, greased griddle. Cook until golden brown on each side. Serve with your favorite topping. 


  • The key to these pancakes is cooking them with the proper heat. They are a more wetter pancake and come out best if allowed to cook slowly on lower heat.
  • These pancakes cook best if you use day old quinoa or freshly made quinoa that has had a chance to sit and dry out a bit.
  • In order to keep things quick and simple, I like to precook quinoa and freeze 1 cup portions. Then I just pull out the quinoa the night before so it’s thawed and ready to go the next day.
  • We like topping with coconut oil, peanut butter and a light drizzling of pure maple syrup. Other ideas are fruits, nuts, jams, etc.
