  Fat Tuesday was last week and it left me craving pancakes and maple syrup. I just kept thinking there has got to be a better way. Using leftover quinoa I tossed this together and must say it hit the spot. The walnut oil is a great source of Omega3s which are essential for proper brain and metabolic function. And the quinoa of course has protein and fibre which gives you a nice sweep of the digestive track. Pancake Cheater  3/4 cup cooked quinoa  2 tsp walnut oil 1 tbsp maple syrup (to your liking) pinch cinnamon 1/2 pinch mineral salt  1/2 tsp chaga (optional) Topping Options - coconut flakes, blueberries, banana, cranberries, apple Lightly toast cooked quinoa in a pan, add to other ingredients, mix well and enjoy. Mum - yes I posted for you and thanks for the Omega3 reminder xo
