Wellness Recipe: Super Easy, Super Healthy Pancakes!

Simple and delicious. Two things I love in the morning, and these pancakes are just that! They take 10 mins to cook up and are sooooo easy to prepare. Make the base mixture and then add whatever toppings and flavour combinations you like. Refined sugar free and gluten free so you don’t have to feel guilty about eating 3 (or 5….) and high in protein (so they’re perfect post workout!).

Makes about 5 medium sized or 6 small. So serves 1 very hungry person or 2 people willing to share!


♥ 1 ripe banana
♥ 2 eggs
♥ 2 teaspoons cinnamon
♥ 1 tablespoon flax meal
♥ 1 tablespoon water
♥ 2 tablespoons quinoa flakes
♥ 1/2 -1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used David Wolfe’s organic brown rice protein)


1. Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth

2. Heat some coconut oil in a pan and cook pancakes on both sides until lightly brown (turning when the top bubbles)

3. Top with anything you want (use your imagination!!!)

Topping ideas:

+ Peanut butter, shredded coconut, blueberries, walnuts (as above)

+ Almond butter, chopped figs, shredded coconut

+ Coconut butter, raspberries, chopped banana

Happy breakfast everyone!!! 😀

    Yum yum yum!!

    I’m totally trying this at some point, coconut and banana are two of my all time favourite things 🙂

    OMG these look delicious! Although is there something that can be used instead of the quinoa flakes? SR flour maybe? (living in a small town without quinoa flakes available is annoying me right now) I’m definitely going to be trying these Friday morning for breakfast with my 2 year old pancake addict 🙂 x

    Hi Jade,

    Instead of quinoa flakes try rolled oats 🙂

  4. It’s always great to have another pancake recipe! I’ve never thought of using quinoa flakes, great idea.
