Flourless Flax Seed Pancakes

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Geema

These delicious, nutritious pancakes are a real treat for low-carbers, quick and easy to make. I adapted this recipe from another website: lowcarbfriends.com. Add to the basic recipe with a few chopped nuts, blueberries, chocolate chips, etc., but remember that they will add some carbs to the whole count, which is under 10 for the entire recipe of more than 8 pancakes.

Tasty pancakes. Like another reviewer, I also reduced the eggs because I agree the batter would have been too thin. I encountered one problem, the pancakes fell apart when I flipped them, perhaps because of the reduction in eggs. Next time I'll add something to help them bind together, maybe a little Guar Gum.
