Serve with freshly sliced peaches or applesauce!


2 cups quinoa flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
¼  teaspoon baking soda
½ cup raw cashews
⅛ cup light-flavored oil like sunflower
2 cups warm water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Oil to coat the griddle or skillet
Fresh peaches or applesauce


  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together quinoa flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  • In a blender grind the cashews to a fine powder.  Scrape down the sides so the cashew powder is in the bottom of the blender.  Add the oil, water, vanilla, lemon juice and maple syrup.  Blend for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Pour the liquid over the dry ingredients and whisk a few times to eliminate the lumps. 
  • If the batter seems too thick, add more water as needed. 
  • Heat the griddle and lightly coat with oil.
  • Add about a ¼ cup of the batter at a time to the hot griddle.  Turn each pancake when they are browned on the bottom and brown again on the other side.
  • Serve with freshly sliced peaches or applesauce.
