I just love these pancakes sooo yummy, I used just two eggs and full fat milk to make mine and they were so good, at first I thought that they were a bit runny but they turned out just fine. My protein powder is vanilla flavour, and I served them with yogurt and mixed berry compote. I am a bit ashamed to say I ate more than I should of but they were so good. this is going to be a regular dish for me. I was thinking I might try it in my waffle machine that would be great.

These turned out light and fluffy, and had a great taste and texture. I served with warm sugar-free cinnamon syrup. They are a bit high in fat, so may try them with egg substitute, and fat-free half and half next time. Great way to get some flax seed, though! Made for Diabetes Awareness Month Tag.
