Breakfast Challenge Day 05, Quinoa Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Today was pancakes day and a chocolate chips one at that!

I decided to ditch the refined pancake flour and use Quinoa flour instead. The kids loved it however, I found it a little dry but nothing softens up pancakes like honey or condensed milk. A nice generous drizzle and I was set for breakfast.

For the kids, I dusted the top with some unsweetened cocoa powder and the kids were good to go!



  • Quinoa flour
  • Chocolate chips (chunks in this case)
  • 1 Egg
  • Milk
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Cinnamon powder
  • Jaggery powder (to taste)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter or Ghee for the skillet
  • Un sweetened Cocoa powder



  • Mix everything in to a smooth batter and make pancakes as you would with butter or ghee.
  • Dust cocoa powder or drizzle honey, maple syrup or condensed milk on top.
  • Serve warm.

Breakfast Challenge Day – 04, Fruit Bowl


We’re on day 4 today and with just 3 more days to go this little experiment has got me to realize that the power of choice every now and then can help settle the tantrums down. We can meet halfway and I don’t need him to tow my line every single time.

Wanting to stay in control has cost me my cool a lot of times and this little experiment of mine has been more a learning journey for me than anything else.

Today was super easy, fruit bowl with a sprinkle of assorted seeds. Trilok, had two helpings and Tara was done with one and happily so.

Both kids got through breakfast without a single wince or whine and the day has progressed on a relatively satisfying note.

Up tomorrow, Chocolate chip pancakes.
