Tips: Spelt flour, unbleached white, has a superior flavor and more protein
.        You may need to add a little more liquid like water with different flours.
        Add 1 +1/2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar to your Rice Beverage and let sit 5 min to 'sour'
        Use a Vanilla Flavored Vegan Beverage
         Add a little Lemon Oil, Orange Oil, Banana Oil along with or in place of Vanilla for an interesting flavor.
