In the past you've included substitutes for eggs with your recipes. Many people with gluten allergies also have egg allergies or are Vegan. More and more of your recipes are labeled 'Paleo Friendly'. Confusing.

Very good pancakes. I've had trouble with non-grain pancakes in the past where the texture is mealy. These kind of have the same texture, but are not at all mealy. I like them also because they are lower carb, which helps me in the morning And because I'm trying to get away from all the rice flour. It is very easy to blacken them, but even so they don't taste burnt. I made them with almond flour, I will probably try them with almond meal, but am guessing they will be better with the flour.
