Amaranth pancakes

1 cup amaranth flour
1 ½ cups water
½ cup arrowroot
2 tbsp lemon juice
½ cup ground nuts
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp baking soda
1-2 tbsp maple
1 tsp ground cinnamon
syrup or honey

Combine the flour, arrowroot, nuts, baking soda and cinnamon.
In a small bowl, mix the water, lemon juice, oil, and maple syrup or honey.
Stir liquid into flour mix to combine well. The batter will be thin.
Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a preheated frying pan.
(The pancakes will be very thin) When pancakes are bubbly on top and browned on bottom, turn and cook other side.
As the batter stands, it may thicken, thin with a little water.

Note: If you want to use these pancakes as flatbreads, cool them on wire racks, then stack, wrap and refrigerate until needed. Warm in a toaster oven or on wire racks in a moderate oven for a few minutes. Use to make mini sandwiches.
