These quinoa flour pancakes are extra fluffy and extra easy to make. You only need a couple of ingredients and a few minutes to make them!




  1. Mix the ground flaxseed and warm water together in a small bowl and let sit for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Thoroughly mix the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
  3. Add the water and flax mixture and gently fold together until “just mixed.” Let the batter sit for 5 minutes. While it sits, heat a pan over medium.
  4. Spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray then scoop the batter into the pan to create your desired size of pancakes. I usually make 5-6 small pancakes but you could go for 3-4 large ones.
  5. Let them cook until the edges are browning and they look almost cooked through.
  6. Flip and cook for another minute or two.
  7. Serve right away with your favourite pancake toppings.


  • This recipes makes 4-5 medium-sized pancakes or 1 serving. I haven’t tried doubling or tripling it.
  • I haven’t tried this recipe with any other sweetener but you should be able to use maple syrup, coconut sugar or another sweetener of choice.
  • You can make these without the flax but I find the flax makes them just a bit sturdier.
  • You can reduce the baking powder to 1-2 and use a bit more water for a thinner, crepe-like pancake.
