These tender pancakes are great for leisurely mornings when you don't need to rush. They are light, fluffy, and fabulous.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl and stir them together.
  2. Place the flaxseeds in a dry blender and grind them into a powder.
  3. Add the water and blend until a gummy mixture is achieved, about 30 seconds.
  4. Add the milk, oil, sugar, and vanilla extract and process until frothy and well blended, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Pour into the flour mixture and mix well until everything is just moistened.
  6. Coat a skillet or griddle with a little canola oil, and heat it over medium-high.
  7. Spoon the batter into the hot skillet using about 2 tablespoons for each pancake.
  8. Cook until bubbles pop through the top of the pancakes and the bottoms are golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  9. Turn the pancakes over and cook until they are golden and cooked through, about 1 minute longer.

These pancakes were very quick to make and delicious. They are nice and fluffy and thick - just the way I like them. I used cooking spray instead of oil, so they did stick a bit, but not bad at all. Half way through I added some cinnamon to the batter which was nice too. Thanks for a yummy, healthy pancake recipe!

Tasty and easy to make. They were a bit thicker than other pancakes, almost biscuit like, but I liked that. Topped with a home made applesauce and it was great that way. Made 8 small pancakes which was perfect for the two of us. Thanks for sharing- we'll be making it again.
