These beautys are a regular in our house! I love them , the kids love them, they don’t take too long to whip up and they are super healthy! You can use eggs instead of flax seed, but I find the flax seed is cheaper and it adds fiber…which keeps them, and me, full longer!
You can see the recipe for waffles here (basically the same thing, just more oil!)
What you need
2 TB flax seed
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
2 TB coconut oil (This is my favorite kind – Spectrum Naturals – Organic Coconut Oil)
1 1/2 -2 cups of milk
What you do
Put flax seed in mixing bowl and add 6 TB of water. You are “supposed” to let that sit for 5 min. but I just add the flour on top. Cause “ain’t nobody got time for that!” hehe
Then add the rest of the ingredients in order. Mix. If it seems a bit dry, add some milk until it is the consistency that you like.
Scoop about 1/4-1/3 cup on to a griddle (I use this one because I don’t have to oil it!) I can usually fit 4-6 on at a time. Let them cook for about 4 min then flip and let them cook on the other side.
You can add more yummy add-ons if you wish. We like to add cocoa powder to make “Coco-nutty Chocolate whole wheat flax seed pancakes”. haha…quite a mouthful!
