If I could eat pancakes every day, I would. There’s just something about them that makes them so comforting! I love making pancakes for breakfast, but they can be just as great for dinner! Tonight, I made savory pancakes with quinoa flour. They work as a fantastic side dish. I enjoyed mine along with black beans, roasted butternut squash and avocado!

Quinoa flour is new to my arsenal, and I am sure that it is here to stay. After trying out the quinoa flour sent to me from Namaste Foods, I’ve decided that I have to keep it around for several reasons. Quinoa flour is a great source of plant protein. I love switching up my grains and pseudograins, so this flour is a nice option when I’m in the mood for something bready. It’s also top 8 free, which relieves loads of anxiety for me!
