Soy Milk Quinoa Breakfast Pancakes

You might remember a while back that I’ve stopped eating sugar, wheat and dairy products. A part of the Scandinavian lifestyle is being healthy and active with a good diet.

Most people (including me) thinks that healthy food = boring food. Which is a total myth. So if you’re interested, I’m going to share some of my yummy and healthy recipes. We’re starting out with a favorite of mine, Soy Milk Quinoa Breakfast Pancakes.

My love affair with breakfast pancakes started when I was 17 and a foreign exchange student in Murtaugh, Idaho (seriously, they have the biggest potatoes I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Potatoes are much smaller in Norway). My host mom, Debbie (which I now refer to as my American mom), makes the BEST pancakes ever.

2010 05 10 001

So here’s the ingredients: (for about 8 servings/pancakes)

1 and 1/4 cup of soy milk
1 and 1/2 cup of gluten free flour mix where about 1/4 is replaced with quinoa musli
1 tablespoon of xylitol (bjørkesøt) – a natural sweetener that doesn’t affect the blood sugar (which is good, I get extremely grouchy if my blood sugar is low)
3 and 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
3 tablespoons of melted butter
1 egg
(1 teaspoon of salt – I don’t use salt, but if you think it tastes better – go ahead :))

In the frying pan, I use neutral cocoa oil (cocosa), which leaves the pancakes nice and crispy. Another bonus with the cocoa oil, is that it’s actually the only oil that doesn’t create any harmful byproducts when heated and it BOOSTS your metabolism.

Enjoy!!

You stopped eating sugar?? What is your secret? I want to stop but dang, it keeps me comin' back ;-)

Jen - just sent you the longest e-mail!! The secret is to have LOTS of yummy, sweet and healthy stuff sans sugar available.

Så utrolig bra, Dagny. Jeg går for tiden på diett via Balderklinikken og dette er jo akkurat det jeg kan spise. - Bortsett fra glutenfritt, jeg må holde meg unna det også foreløpig.

Men hva med smør, bruker du soyabasert?

Xylitol er bra, men veldig søtt, så jeg vil anbefale å bruke mindre av denne enn man ville gjort med vanlig sukker. Er du ikke enig?

Cocosa pure er eksellent å steke i - men kanskje ikke folk skjønner at den er uten kokossmak?...

Har du prøvd sjokolade med xylitol, uten melk? Jeg kjøper plater på helsekosten. Elsker mørk sjokolade og denne er helt mmmm... Smelter den også noen ganger med Cocosa extra virgin (den med kokossmak), har oppi hakkede mandler eller nøtter og setter til avkjøling. Veldig digg!

Gleder meg til å følge med på oppskriftene dine! Klem, Laila

Dagny @ Scandinavian Chic said...

Hei Laila! Dette var en bra kommentar med mange gode poenger!

Må du holde deg unna glutenfritt mel? Det er mye annet man kan bruke, frks kokosmel, jyttemel osv :)

Jeg bruker faktisk vanlig stekesmør i disse, men det kan helt fint byttes ut med cocosa. Jeg bruker 72% kakao-sjokoladen med xylitol uten melk og den er jo bare latterlig god! Her går det ned ca 3 plater i uken på hele familien. :D

Enig vedr xylitol, man trenger ikke mye for at det skal bli søtt.

Godt poeng vedr smaken på cocosa, det skal jeg legge inn en ekstra kommentar i innlegget på. :)

Du, det å smelte sjokoladen med cocosa extra virgin høres latterlig godt ut! Det må prøves ut!

Stor klem tilbake :)
