Nutty Quinoa Breakfast Cakes

Submitted by: KITHKINCAID

Introduction

Like dense pancakes, these cakes can take anything you want to put in them - fruit, nuts, chocolate chips. Totally delicious and packed with protein and whole grains.

The addition of peanut butter enhances the nutty flavour of the quinoa and takes away the sometimes bitter flavour that many people don't enjoy.

Ingredients

    2/3 cup Quinoa Flakes
    1 1/2 cups water
    2 tbsp light peanut butter
    1 egg
    1 tbsp flax seeds (optional)

Directions

Bring water to a boil in a small sauce pan. Once boiling, add quinoa flakes and reduce heat. Cook until flakes form a mash. Remove from heat.

While warm, stir in the peanut butter. Let cool slightly.

Once cool enough to handle, stir in the egg and any optional toppings you would like to add - flax seed, nuts, berries, raisins, etc. (Just make sure you account for what you add in the calorie tracker. My recipe includes flax seeds in the count).

Divide recipe into 4 equal amounts and shape into cakes. In a large skillet, brown the cakes on both sides.

Serve with jam or syrup - just like pancakes.
