Nothing says “weekend breakfast” like a stack of homemade pancakes. If you’re making pancakes from scratch though, it can be a bit of an ordeal as you’ll likely have to combine several ingredients, melt butter, sift flour etc. It’s definitely worth the effort on the taste front, but, if you’re like me, you might not like that heavy, laden feeling you’re left with after you eat waaaaay too many pancakes. Traditional pancakes are so light and fluffy and it’s easy to overindulge. Don’t get me wrong – I’m a big believer in the occasional overindulgence, but not in the month of January because most people are trying to eat healthier in the new year and lose any extra pounds they gained over the holidays! Enter 3 Ingredient Healthy Pancakes – the perfect solution to these pesky pancake issues! (more…)

Quinoa flour is one such flour and my grocery store just started carrying it so I couldn’t resist grabbing a bag and with it, I made gluten-free Cranberry Orange Quinoa Zucchini Muffins. These seasonal muffins are flavored with winter fruit and spice and are really delicious!
