    DELICIOUS!! Made these exactly as directed and added sliced bananas to the batter - they are filling and decadent yet you don't feel guilty eating them! What a nice way to add whole grains to your diet.

    I thought the batter was pretty thick as well so ended up adding 3/4 cup milk. I use this as my regular recipe now but substitute whole wheat flour and oil instead of the white flour & butter. With the whole wheat flour sometimes I use 1 cup milk, also cook on lower heat, cook the pancakes thoroughly so that the quinoa texture is less prevalent.

    I just made this recipe and hopefully someone will have answers for me. The "batter" was so thick it was like a drop cookie batter. I had to add another 1/4 c milk in order to get the batter to a pancake consistency. Also some of the pancakes had a few big crunchy grains of the coarse salt. What went wrong?

    NOM! Used gluten-free flour and put mashed figs on top. My boyfriend is a Canadian boy who loves his classic pancakes and he said these were the best he'd ever eaten! His face dropped when I told him they were gluten-free :)

    We loved these! Very tasty and filling. Delicious with fresh blueberries on the side. I made them out of leftover quinoa that I had made in the rice cooker the night before. Our recipe only made 8. Will make again!

    This recipe was sooo delicious. I substituted the flour with buckwheat pancake flour to amp up the protein. Plus I added flax seed and organic blueberries.

    What a perfect idea Martha! I'm both gluten & diary free and when I came across this recipe I knew I needed to transform it into something I can eat. These little delights are the perfect breakfast or snack! Here is the link if you'd like to check it out. http://www.laurafriendly.com/2011/10/quinoa-pancakes.html (I also agree medium high was too hot, medium worked perfectly).

    These were delicious! I don't normally like quinoa, but these turned out really good. A good way to get a ton of protein for breakfast! My only tip, medium high was way too hot and they burned pretty quick. Medium was plenty hot.
