Parrot Pancakes

I haven't posted here in a long while as I've been mainly posting my recipes on Facebook and completely forgot about the blog. so here is the recipe for parrot-friendly pancakes with two different kind of toppings.

makes 8

1/4 cup of cooked quinoa
1-2 Tbsp of buckwheat flour
1 Tbsp of chia seeds or ground flax
3 Tbsp of water
1/4 tsp of coconut oil or palm fruit extract
small pinch of cinnamon
small pinch of turmeric
small piece of Kale leaf or any other green leafy
3 cubes (or 1 1/3 inch slice of a small) squash or pumpkin, cooked and mashed.
1/4 of fig, mashed (can replace with any other fruit or berry which is easy to mash)

Grease your non-toxic pan very very lightly with coconut oil,  I used a brush to do so.

Mix chia seeds and water and let them stand for a couple of minutes. Then add all other ingredients and mix. The batter should be quite thick, almost rollable, so if it is too watery add a bit more buckwheat flour, if it is too thick, add a splash of water.

Scoop the batter in small pancakes, or roll them in your hands in little balls, put them on your pan and flatten with the back of the spoon. Fry on each side for about a minute or so. Don't make them too big, as it will take too long to cook and will be harder to flip.

Berry Topping

1 raspberry
1 blackberry
1 rosehip
3-4 blueberries
1 strawberry

Put the berries in the smallest pan you have and on a slow heat cook them until just soft and syrupy. Serve over the pancakes

Almond and Cashew Cream Topping

a handful of almonds
a handful of cashews
2 tsp of water
1/2 tsp of coconut oil

Put everything in a small food processor and blend until smooth. Serve about 1/4 of a teaspoon on top of pancakes.
