rice pancake Edit Seven


  • 1-1/2 cups brown rice
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 ripe pear or apple, cored and chopped
  • 2 tbsp hemp hearts
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • pinch cinnamon
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil


  1. The night before you’re ready to make them, rinse rice and quinoa separately.
  2. In separate glass jars, soak rice and quinoa in water overnight.
  3. In a blender, add in the rice and quinoa along with the soaking water.
  4. Add chopped apple or pear, hemp hearts, coconut sugar, cinnamon and sea salt.
  5. Blend until smooth. In medium-sized pan on med-high heat, add coconut oil to heat.
  6. Pour pancake-sized amounts of mixture into the pan and cook until both sides are golden brown.
  7.  Be sure that they’re well-cooked and that they are not raw in the middle – I find that the texture gets a bit funny if they’re not well done.
