Decadent Chocolate Quinoa Breakfast – Vegan and Gluten-Free

By 17

This recipe might be just what you need if you are living with a picky person when it comes to food, also comes in handy if you’re trying to introduce healthy ingredients into your child’s diet. It is very difficult to prepare a breakfast rich in minerals and healthy fats, especially for somebody who doesn’t really care about the nutrition and prefers something delicious, like my boyfriend does. I could give him all the scientific reasons why eating this or that ingredient is good for his health, but if it doesn’t taste delicious, he won’t eat it.

I’m not a specialist in desserts, so I did a little research to find a recipe that fits my needs – gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and vegan. That’s how I came across …

Gluten-Free Buckwheat Banana Pancakes

Let me introduce you to my favorite comfort breakfast – the gluten free, completely vegan, but still incredibly delicious buckwheat banana pancakes. You know I’m not a heavy breakfast girl, so don’t think there’s anything hearty about these pancakes.
