  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (wholemeal, or use spelt)
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 2 tablespoons quinoa flour
  • 3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 medium apple (you will need 100g grated apple)
  • 1/2 cup raisins (very loosely packed)


  • In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.
  • In a medium bowl,  beat the eggs, milk, and maple syrup together using a hand beater.
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Beat together until a batter forms. Using a fork, stir in the apples and raisins.
  • Heat a griddle or non-stick frying pan on medium to medium-high heat. Add in a bit of oil. Spoon on about 1/4 cup of the batter for each pancake. Using the back of the spoon, gently help the batter lightly spread into a circle.
  • Cook until the sides of the pancake are starting to look dried, and there are bubbles on the surface, about 2 minutes. The bottom of the pancake should also be golden-brown at the same time. If the bottom is browning too fast, turn down the heat. Gently flip the pancake and cook on the other side until the bottom is golden-brown. 
  • Serve with maple syrup, this easy blueberry jam with chia seeds, or yogurt.
