These gluten-free quinoa pancakes are super fluffy and hearty all at once! The batter for these beauties is quick and easy to throw together as it only uses a few ingredients.
|1 cup white rice flour or gluten-free oat flour ( I used rice flour||1 teaspoon baking powder||1/2 teaspoon baking soda||1/4 teaspoon kosher salt||1 cup buttermilk, at room temperature|
|2 eggs, at room temperature||1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract||1 tablespoon pure maple syrup, plus more for serving||1 cup cooked quinoa, cooled|
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon syrup. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry and whisk until a few lumps remain. Fold in the quinoa.
Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Brush with a bit of oil or butter and scoop 1/4 cup rounds of the batter on the griddle. Allow to cook for 2 to 3 minutes on the first side or until little bubbles start to form on the surface. Flip the pancakes and cook an additional minute. Remove to a plate and keep warm while preparing the remaining batter. Serve warm with butter and more pure maple syrup.
