Quinoa Berry Pancakes Recipe

My recent journey with "The Elimination Diet" has left me searching for gluten-free dairy-free egg-free recipes and breakfast is the most challenging. As a dietitian, I'm familiar with gluten-free products and foods, but never have I had to follow such a strict diet. I tire quickly of smoothies, especially in winter, and quinoa porridge looks too much like baby food to be appetizing. I stumbled upon Quinoa flour on a recent grocery shopping excursion and to my surprise, these pancakes are amazing! This recipe is worth trying, even if you don't need to be gluten free. Even my 4-year old likes them!
