Lucy Bee Quinoa Flake Pancakes

Last week I attended the launch of Lucy Bee's new recipe book, Cooking with Coconut Oil.

Hitingt shelves on 24th September, it's the first cookbook published in the UK that celebrates coconut oil. Bursting with over 100 delicious and easy-to-make recipes to tempt and inspire you, the book also includes a chapter explaining how to use coconut oil in your beauty régime.

My favourite recipe is the Quinao Pancakes - they're super easy to make and only take 10 minuets to prepare and cook (just whiz up the ingredients in a blender and fry!).
You can also substitue the quinoa flakes for buckwheat flour (despite the name this actually a fruit seed and is gluten-free) or oats, but I found the quinoa kept me fuller for longer.
