Expert Tips

  • Freeze leftover pancakes for a quick weekday breakfast. Cool pancakes completely on cooling rack. Place in resealable freezer plastic bag or container.
  • If you don't have cooked quinoa on hand, these pancakes are great without it. Next time you are making quinoa, make a little extra to save for this recipe.
  • If you love your trusty box of Bisquick™, Heart Smart™ Recipes That Take You From Breakfast to Biscuits are for you.
  • Here’s a handy tip that’ll help you determine whether or not your griddle is hot enough: Sprinkle a drop of water on it. If it sizzles, you’ll know it’s ready.
