Preparation

  1. Whisk together quinoa flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon in a stainless or glass bowl.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together milk, v-butter, vanilla, and egg replacer.  Mix very well.
  3. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  4. Heat a well-oiled (use v-butter not oil, as this is important to achieve a "buttery" pancake flavor) pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot to the touch, pour batter onto the pan using a large mixing spoon.  Let mixture cook until bubbles form, then lift one of the edges to make sure color is a rich dark brown.  When desired color is achieved flip and cook for another few minutes.
  5. Remove from pan and top with a little more v-butter and maple syrup. Garnish with strawberries.
