  • 2 cups Quinoa flour
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons baking powder (Clabber Girl brand is gluten free)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea or extra fine kosher salt

  • 1/2 cup diced walnuts, optional
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil, or canola oil
  • 2 tablespoon honey

  • 2 cups fat free kefir, plain (or low fat buttermilk)
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • *NOTE: For a dairy free version substitute 1 1/2 cups soy or almond milk in place of kefir.


  1. In a large mixing bowl whisk together dry ingredients. In another mixing bowl combine the remaining ingredients, except blueberries. Pour wet mixture into dry and stir just until combined and most lumps disappear, fold in blueberries.
  2. Heat a nonstick griddle to 350 degrees, or medium-low heat in a large nonstick skillet, or until a drop of water sizzles when dropped on. Pour in 1/3 cup pancake mix.
  3. Turn pancakes over when they begin to dry around the edges and are golden on the bottom. If desired, top pancakes with additional blueberries and drizzle with 100% pure maple syrup.

    may I substitute quinoa flour with rice flour or almond flour?

      Yes, a mix of almond flour and rice flour should be a good substitute.
