  • I am gluten free and my digestive system really likes quinoa but I do not particularly like the taste this was a great way to get it in my diet. I did sub the brown rice flour for gluten free pancake mix but it turned out great the kids even like them. - 5/31/09

    That's great! I'm glad you and your family enjoyed the recipe. My nutrition professor added the recipe to her cookbook collection too. I like the idea of using the GF pancake mix, I often substitute items and they tend to turn out just fine too. Way to go you!
