Yes. Pancakes again. Why not?

These are crunchy and hearty and totally great on a Sunday morning. Sorry it's already so late for many of you -- how about next Sunday then?

Quinoa Pancakes {adapted from Martha Stewart}

1 cup cooked quinoa
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
2 eggs
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted, plus more for skillet
1/4 cup low fat milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons maple syrup, plus more for serving
chocolate chips, to taste (I put 6 chips per cake)
chopped hazelnuts, to taste

In a medium bowl mix together quinoa, flour, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl whisk together eggs, butter, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla until smooth. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and whisk to combine.
Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with butter and heat to a medium-low temperature. Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls into skillet. Top each pancake with a few chocolate chips and a small sprinkle of chopped hazelnuts. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface, approximately 2 minutes. Flip cakes and cook until golden brown on underside, 2 minutes.

Makes 9-12 pancakes.
