  1. 1 cup cooked quinoa
  2. 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

  8. 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, plus more for serving
  9. Fresh fruit or fruit preserves (optional) for serving


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together quinoa, flour, baking powder, and salt. In another medium bowl, whisk together egg, egg white, butter, milk, and syrup until smooth. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and whisk to combine.
