5 minute Quinoa Banana Pancakes

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.

  1. Hi Romina, I love your website and following you. Happy New Year and all the best for 2015. Looks like 2014 was fantastic for you. I was wondering if there is a way to print your receipes? Like a print card instead of all the pictures?

    Love your receipes haven’t made any yet but my new years resolution is to try some of them. xo Lori

    1. Hi Lori! Thank you lovely. The best way to do it is to copy and paste and put it on a Word document or just take a screen shot. I can also send you the recipes by email if it’s easier for you :). Just let me know . Wishing you the best in 2015 XO !
