    Healthy Whole Wheat & Flax Pancakes

    Posted by  ·  May 14, 2013

    These whole wheat and flax pancakes are healthy and delicious! They are loaded with fiber, whole grain and  heathy Omega-3’s. The perfect way to start the day!

    I love a yummy breakfast recipe.  Looking for something not so healthy but amazing try this sausage and mozzarella egg casserole, overnight coffe cake, this delish apple coffee cake or the best quiche recipe EVER!

    Whole Wheat and Flax Pancake Recipe

    Whole Wheat and Flax Pancakes

    1/4 cup ground Flax
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup milk (I used 1%)
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon canola oil

    Combine flour, flax, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl mix milk, egg and oil. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry indredients. Gently stir until just combined. Do not over stir, batter will be lumpy. Spray pan with nonstick spray and cook!

      Used almond milk and extra virgin olive oil and added ground cinnamon sticks. They came out delicious...

      These were great! I did not add any additional salt as there is already sodium in the baking powder and baking soda and the pancakes were perfect. I also added a cup of fresh blueberries.
