Ah, Thursdays. Why do you start at 8 am and make we wake up at 6:45 to rush to be prepared for the little ones in the Paediatrics hospital.
I’m so bad at 8 am’s. But i’m really good at 9. I can do 9.
Anyways, 8 ams with a bunch of little ones running around makes a hearty yet quick breakfast a must. Also, a big cup of coffee. That too.
A quick breakfast that will keep you full until lunch seems harder and harder to come by these days without stuffing yourself with a load of bread. These 5 minute Quinoa Pancakes are what you’re looking for.
5 minute Quinoa Banana Pancakes
3/4 cup cooked quinoa
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of sea salt
1/4 cup mashed ripe banana
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

2. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients.
3. Pour batter onto skillet (or griddle), making 4 pancakes.
