Quinoa Blueberry Pancakes

Quinoa flour takes center stage in these pancakes. Quinoa is packed with nutrients, so why not create healthier pancakes with it? I couldn’t think of a reason. The quinoa flavor is somewhat pronounced in the first bite or two. After that, I didn’t notice it (how magical) and found these quite delicious.
