    Jodi, the quinoa flakes are kind of the “glue” that holds this together, but hopefully you can improvise with your quinoa. I’d say to overcook it a bit, so that it becomes rather mushy. So cook the 1/3 cup quinoa in 1 cup water. Once it’s absorbed, see if the quinoa is a bit overcooked, and if not, add another 1/4 cup water and cook until absorbed. This should work, and I hope it turns out well for you!

    I don’t use grains.. are the quinoa flakes a sub for eggs? If so, do you think flax or chia eggs would work? If yes, do you have an idea of how many?

    Thanks,

    Hi Iris — yes, the quinoa flakes are a sub for eggs. Since I haven’t tried this with flax or chia “egg” I can’t say with 100% certainty, but I’d suggest the equivalent of two eggs.

    Hello. How are you? Would this work as muffins? This recipe looks absolutely delicious. I am so thrilled there is not any matzo meal or matzo cake meal. Thank you so much!
