Servings 3 servings


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 zucchini shredded
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp agave
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 orange


  • Cook quinoa. After draining, put in a bowl and add shredded zucchini, cinnamon, and agave. Chop orange in half and squeeze the juice of both halves into the bowl. Mix everything together.
  • In a sauce pan, drizzle coconut oil and spoon the mixture into the sauce pan and make a “pancake” shape. Allow to cook on one side until brown and then flip with a spatula. Repeat until mixture is gone.
  • Serve with maple syrup and some orange zest.


Plan Ahead – Prepare quinoa the day before.
Lower Fat Option – Omit coconut oil.
