  1. Combine the quinoa and oats in a blender. Process on high until the mixture is a fine consistency. (think flour)
  2. Add in baking soda, cinnamon, flax meal, salt, maple syrup and almond milk. Blend until combined.  Scrape sides of blender as needed. The batter will be thick. 

Cook and ENJOY!  Top with fresh fruit, nuts, whipped cream or simple real maple syrup.
