Quinoa Breakfast Cakes


I love finding different ways to use quinoa. I have used it as a side, as a porridge, and in a salad. My daughter loves pancakes, which I always make from scratch, but this time I wanted to have a much healthier version that is also gluten-free and vegan. So this recipe was created!

Quinoa Breakfast Cakes


  •  2 overripe bananas peeled and mashed
  • 1/2 cup quinoa flakes
  • 1 flax egg
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 scoops protein powder**
  • 1/8 cup water
  • berries and maple syrup for topping (optional)


  • Preheat griddle to 350  degrees
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well
  • Add 1/4 cups to the griddle and use a fork to flatten.
  • Cook on each side until brown
  • Remove from griddle
  • Top with berries and maple syrup (optional) Enjoy!

**The protein powder I used in this recipe is the Livfit superfood blend with protein. Here is a list of some of my other favorite protein powders options.

Note: I use all organic items.
