Quinoa Pancakes...

As part of my new 5:2 diet, I've been introducing some new carbs into our diet, and last week I was left with an abundance of quinoa, and it wasn't a fasting day.
Quinoa (keenwa) is a South American, a grain, a "pseudo-cereal', apparently.  It tastes good.
So, I experimented and made these wonderful pancakes. Now, I'm guessing the quantities, and will measure them next time.
1 cup cooked white quinoa
2 eggs
1/3 cup flour (or gluten free flour)
1 tbsp melted butter
1/3 cup milk

  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Melt butter in pancake pan on medium heat, and pour around a 1/3 cup of mixture.
  3. Flip over pancake.

Serve with maple syrup and yoghurt.
