Cinn-Raisin Quinoa Pancakes

Whenever we make quinoa for one of our favorite dishes, I usually make 2 cups of it so that we have leftovers for pancakes. The girls LOVE them and they are a good way to give them a protein-filled breakfast! I have to admit, though, that I never measure, so play with the recipe until you get it the way you like it. I just wanted to post it so you would have an idea of what I do. I use a bunch of eggs because they are so good for you, but if you want the pancakes to be more crispy and less eggy, don't use as many :)

1 cup cooked quinoa
4 eggs
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. sea salt
pinch of sucanat or whatever sweetener you like (I don't use much since we are putting syrup on them to eat them)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
handful of raisins
dash of coconut oil (or whatever oil you prefer) for frying

Directions: Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Heat coconut oil in skillet until hot. Drop spoonfuls of batter into the oil, turning pancake over when one side is brown. Serve with maple syrup.
