For me, though, I was excited to get home with my peaches and make these:
- 2 cups precooked quinoa
- 3 eggs
- 1 heaping cup of finely diced peaches (or other fresh fruit)
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 TBSP organic raw honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
NOTE: Here are a few other of my favorite variations for these fruity quinoa cakes:
bananas and cinnamon
strawberries and walnuts
blueberries and lemon zest
Crack your eggs into a large mixing bowl, then whisk until smooth.
Slice up your peaches and remove as much skin as possible. Finely dice/mash the fruit.
Add your quinoa and finely diced peaches to the whisked eggs, then add your flour, baking powder, and vanilla – and stir to incorporate completely.
Heat a fry pan and lightly butter the bottom. With pan a little higher than medium heat, use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to make patties in pan. After 3 – 3 1/2 minutes, carefully flip patties.
Isn’t that easy? And – DELICIOUS.
Now, seriously – don’t skimp! Use REAL organic maple syrup for these… or, maybe a drizzle of some warm honey.
These will become a new favorite around your house… I’m willing to bet on it.
