Gluten-Free Pancakes

DIRECTIONS

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon syrup. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry and whisk until a few lumps remain. Fold in the quinoa.

Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Brush with a bit of oil or butter and scoop 1/4 cup rounds of the batter on the griddle. Allow to cook for 2 to 3 minutes on the first side or until little bubbles start to form on the surface. Flip the pancakes and cook an additional minute. Remove to a plate and keep warm while preparing the remaining batter. Serve warm with butter and more pure maple syrup.
