Quinoa Blueberry Pancakes

Quinoa is such a wonderful grain. For those of us living a gluten-free lifestyle, it is very versatile, and not only that – so nutritious too!

I have been  lurking following a wonderful blogger for a while now, and her recipes, and bright personality certainly shine through her site.  If you don’t already know SimplyQuinoa, go take a look right now!

I recently saw a recipe for blueberry quinoa pancakes, and just had to try them. Here is my version of Alyssa’s wonderful recipe, which you can find by clicking above.
