A new family favorite ~ Grapefruit, Buttermilk, and Poppy Seed Quinoa Pancakes

I’m not quite sure if it’s the crunch of the poppy seeds, the tang of the buttermilk or the nuttiness of the flours used (gluten free, indeed) but these little breakfast treats have become quite the family favorite and a frequent morning request.
Thank you, Gabriella, for looking up food and recipes online, as well as still inside the pages of cookbooks, like your mommy, and finding this one.
