Mega Healthy Pancakes

Mega Healthy Pancakes

The next installment to my Mega Healthy food series!  Ever since experimenting with my Mega Healthy Honey Olive Quinoa Cake, quinoa has become a baking favorite. Quinoa is ideal because it cooks up especially soft and blends in well with whatever it’s baked in.  These pancakes are not only made with quinoa, they’re deceptively packed full of olive and coconut oil, flax seeds, wheat germ and oat bran.  And my little ones gobbled them up and never had a clue!  And I have pics to prove it.  Come take a look!
