Quinoa-Cinnamon Pancakes – Fruit Compote

This is a bit fancier presentation of the quinoa-cinnamon pancake recipe and can either be used for a breakfast or dessert.  It has a little added protein with the addition of protein powder, a little more milk for a thinner pancake and a beautiful fruit compote that can be served on the top or along side.

To make pancakes faster, I create extra quinoa and create 1-1/2 cup zip locks which is placed in a larger ziplock with dry ingredients and a copy of the recipe.  These are placed in the freezer.  Next time pancakes are wanted – place in refrigerator the night before.  The next morning mix up wet ingredients and before you know it pancakes will be bubbling on the griddle.
