    I made my flour in my Vitamix (first time -so exciting) but as other members said below the batter was too thin and there was not binding agent so I added a couple tsps coconut flour and an egg. Pancakes still fell apart so I scrambled, added organic maple syrup & ate in a bowl. Taste was quite good - 9/9/12

    Qunioa flour is excellent, thanks for the suggestion. I added eggs and vegetable glycerine for binding and non-sugar sweetness and they were a fantastic treat. - 12/14/11

    Without sugar, milk (better yet buttermilk or kefir yogurt) & egg this recipe ended up tasting like baking powder. Also w/o egg the pancakes are fragile & take care to flip. I used 1c. quinoa flour, 1c. almond flour, 1.5c water, 3 tsp baking pwdr, salt, olive oil & resulting in good batter thickness - 5/7/11
