Pancakes With Ground Flax / Flax Seed

Total Time

Puffy, fluffy, crispy! This is very loosely based off a "Reader's Quick Recipe" from May 2007's Bon Appetit magazine. I have also made this with 1 1/2 c. flour, 1/4 c. flax, 3 t. baking powder, & 1% milk. Slightly healthier; not as much raving from DH ;-)

  5. Drop a 1/4 cup batter onto the hot griddle for each pancake.
  6. Cook until brown, approximately 2 minutes per side.
  7. Serve with syrup and butter -- enjoy!

This was delicious and so easy to make! I substituted melted coconut oil for the butter and added blueberries! I will probalby try almond milk with it next time too! Definitely going to add this recipe to my favorites!

I'm completely satisfied with this recipe. Thanks! The only change I made was skim milk instead of whole milk. They turned out tasty and I love the hint of cinnamon and vanilla. I'll definitely make them again. :)
