This is one delicious "superfood" breakfast. The blueberries are packed with anti oxidants and the quinoa contains all the Essential Amino Acids (EAA's) making it a complete protein. These pancakes are extremely wholesome and hearty, so I think you need the sweetness of the sauce to lighten things up a bit. You could also add some agave syrup or maple syrup for a little extra sweetness. For this recipe, I soaked the batter overnight as this softens the grains and makes them more easily digestible. I used cow's milk, but you could make these dairy free by adding rice or almond milk.

Quinoa and Blueberry Pancake Stack

Preparation Time: 10 minutes (plus soaking overnight)
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 6 - 8 servings

Soak the quinoa overnight

1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
1 1/2 cups milk (cow's milk or rice milk or almond milk)
1 egg
3/4 cup wholemeal flour (spelt flour or buckwheat flour)
1 tablespoons yoghurt
Butter (for frying)

Blueberry Topping:
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup filtered water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons caster sugar

Ingredients ready to prepare

Soak the uncooked quinoa and flour in the milk of your choice overnight.
Next morning, mix in the egg, yoghurt and extra milk if you think your batter is still too dry.

Heat a fry pan and add a teaspoon of butter or oil.
Spoon a dollop of mixture into the fry pan and flip it over when golden.
Cook the other side and cook your way through the rest of the mixture. By the end, you will have a lovely stack of pancakes.

Add the blueberry topping ingredients to a saucepan.
Heat the blueberries so that their color "runs" and the sugar dissolves.
Pour the sweet blueberry topping onto your pancake stack and serve hot with yoghurt (or maybe ice cream if you're feeling indulgent). Enjoy each mouthful of fruity goodness.
