Brown Rice Quinoa Pancakes

Not often do I make pancakes, but these are an exception and I make them for supper. I've always loved breakfast for supper, haven't you? These pancakes are usually on my supper agenda when I have leftover brown rice. You could use all brown rice if you don't have any quinoa, but it's better mixed. Conversely, don't use all quinoa either as the flavor will be a bit overpowering.
An interesting idea: Zoe suggested serving it as one big pancake, pouring it into a buttered cast iron skillet and baking it at 450 for about 15 minutes. Then the whole family can dive right in with butter and maple syrup. 

Brown Rice Quinoa Pancakes
From Huckleberry by Zoe Nathan

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
5 tablespoons cornmeal
2 tablespoons rolled oats
1 tablespoon flax seed meal or wheat germ
2 teaspoons chia seeds or poppy seeds
1 tablespoon millet
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup melted butter
3 eggs
1 1/4 cups cooked brown rice
1/2 cup cooked quinoa

Place the first 9 ingredients in a large bowl. Add the buttermilk, butter and eggs and whisk to combine. Add the brown rice and quinoa.
Preheat a greased griddle or greased skillet. When some droplets of water sizzle, turn heat down to medium and use 1/3 cup of the batter for each pancake. When the bubbles set on the surface of the pancake and the bottom is golden, flip and cook on the other side for about a minute.
Serve immediately. Makes about 15 pancakes.


  1. An interesting and healthy combination. I'd love to try those pancakes.



  2. Breakfast for dinner is fun, especially if you missed breakfast that morning. Better still is pancakes, something I don't make often and would definitely have more time in the evening. Love the rice & quinoa combination Barbara.

  3. The twins adore pancakes and I dont make often too!
    These look amazing and I love the combination Barbara!

  4. I agree what a nice twist.and they look beautiful.

  5. I love breakfast for dinner! I've been meaning to make pancakes from that book. Was there also a wild rice pancake? The mix of grains and seeds in this one sounds so good. Love the idea of making this as one big pancake too.

  6. A very delicious and healthy combination of flavours! Love these pancakes.

  7. i could easily adapt this to a gluten free recipe but i must say these look extraordinary!

  8. Okay! A pancake I'd eat for supper. But would the picky Knight try them?

  9. I too love breakfast for dinner, Barbara...However, I just can't bring myself to add ingredients like brown rice or quinoa. I know, I really need to get with the program because yours sure do look yummy!

    Thanks for sharing...

  10. I made quinoa pancakes once, and they were SO GOOD! Yours looks amazing :)

  11. I bet these are wonderful Barbara, love quinoa!

  12. I usually have a very light breakfast, so when I get a hankering for pancakes or waffles I usually have them for supper. I love all of the grains in these- they look delicious! :)

  13. even after seeing quinoa everywhere and in everything, i don't think i've come across them in pancakes--great idea and execution! these look terrific, for any meal.

  14. My DIL would love these. She adds good stuff to all of her baked goods. Chia seeds and Hemp hearts go into her muffins. Great recipe Barbara.

  15. I just got my copy of Huckleberry from the library and I can't wait to peruse it! I'd better be fast because there's a waiting line of people waiting to see it too :) These pancakes look delicious and yes, I love breakfast for dinner.
