Flaxseed Pancakes

Flaxseed pancakes that the Chief Taster also enjoyed this which is for a first with a dish made with flaxseed!  It does not have the slimy taste that flaxseed sometimes gives.   The cinnamon helps too.

This recipe is from the Low Carb Friends site and is something I’ve been enjoying for a while.  They are very filling and I can often only manage two at a time.  You may want to half the mixture if you are cooking for one.    You may want to add a bit more sweetener for your own tastes or alternatively slather a stack of these with cinnamon butter or cream!  At 1g net carbs per pancake this is a great low carb breakfast.

    Ooh, I like this idea. Have you tried this with egg whites or a combination of whole eggs + whites? Also, have you tried this with chia seed?

      No I have not tried with egg whites but cannot see why it would not work with them or chia seed. Just add a bit more water as the batter is fairly thick to cook with. Thanks for popping by and happy cooking!

    Very interesting… I wonder if it could work for a savory pancake omitting the sugar, maybe adding some herbs? I just made some crepe type thingies using eggs, tapioca and coconut flours. It was pretty good… I love exploring different types of flours and seeds or grains.

      Hi Sally, yes they can. I’ve played around with these and smothered them with spinach and cheese for a savoury dish. They were delicious and very filling! Thanks for popping by!
