Recipe from Marie Donadio

Ingredients

  • 2 cups quinoa flour
  • 2 Tbs baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 cup light-flavored oil, such as sunflower
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp lemon juice or 1/4 tsp (1g) ascorbic acid crystals dissolved in 2 Tbsp (30mL) warm water
  • 1 tsp maple syrup

Directions

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together quinoa flour, baking powder, and baking soda. In blender, grind nuts to a fine powder, pausing to scrape under the blades 2–3 times. Add to blender: water, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and maple syrup and blend 3–4 minutes. Pour liquids over dry ingredients and whisk a few times, eliminating lumps. If batter is too thick, add water as necessary.
  • Pour a scant 1/4 cup (60mL) of batter onto hot non-stick griddle (heated until water dances on it) for each pancake. Serve with fruit sauce or applesauce.

Variations: Add 1–2 Tbsp (10–20g) flaxseed into the blender with the cashews. For a heavier buckwheat sourdough pancake, replace up to 1 cup (120g) of quinoa flour with buckwheat flour and use 2 Tbsp (25g) baking powder.
