Recipe: Healthy Quinoa Carrot Cake Pancakes

My boyfriend’s mom is a big quinoa fan. For Christmas, I bought her Quinoa Revolution (you can buy it online). Before gifting it, I snapped a pic of this ‘Carrot Cake Pancake’ recipe – it sounded so good. Turns out, the recipe is a winner.


1 ½ c. quinoa flour
1 tbsp. organic cane sugar (or brown sugar)
3 ½  tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. cinnamom
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 c. milk of your choice (I used almond)
2 eggs
1/4 c. apple sauce
1 c. grated carrot
1/3 c. crushed pineapple, drained
1/3 c. raisins
1/4 c. chopped pecans


1. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg
2. In a separate small bowl, mix together milk, eggs, apple sauce
3. Combine the wet and dry
4. Add carrots, pineapple, raisins, pecans to the batter
5. Grease a big pan (I used coconut oil) and heat on medium
6. Pour 1/4 c. of the batter in a time and flip pancakes when air bubbles appear

For a pretty pop of color, add pinches of grated carrots to the pan before adding your batter. Pour batter on top of carrots, then flip to reveal your pretty ‘carrot flower’.
