Who doesn’t love Pancakes?!

Pancakes are a kid favorite, and let’s be honest, adults love them too!

They’re simple, easy, and fun to make with the whole family. You can even use cookie cutters to turn them into fun shapes and decorate them with fruit and syrupy smiley faces.

But when it comes to their nutritional value and staying power as a hearty breakfast, pancakes often fall short.

Not to worry though, Back to 30® has you covered with our healthy take on the classic flapjack.

Introducing Flaxseed Meal Pancakes

Flaxseed meal is made from the ground-up seeds of the flax plant. It contains good carbohydrates, oils, and phytochemicals packed with health benefits. Incorporating ground flax into your diet provides you with fiber, essential fatty acids and lignans (which help with cardiovascular disease).

In addition to the flaxseed meal, these powerhouse pancakes also contain almond milk, already known as a fantastic alternative to regular milk.

Low in calories and sodium with no cholesterol or saturated fat, almond milk is also high in healthy fats helping to prevent elevated blood pressure and heart disease.

So far, we already have a double dose of heart health with these delicacies! Not to mention, they’re delicious!

Enough about how great the ingredients are, you want to know how to make them, right?

Ingredients

• 1 cup flax seed meal

• 4 eggs, beaten

• 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk

• 1 tbsp lemon juice

• 1 tsp baking soda

• 1 tsp vanilla extract

• 1 tsp cinnamon

• pinch of salt

• OPTIONAL: berries

DIRECTIONS

1:Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl. The mixture will be sticky because of the flax. If it is too thick, add more almond milk or water.

2:Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, spray with cooking spray (or a bit of cooking oil).

3:Pour about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake and gently spread it out with a spoon. Let cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until edges begin to firm and bubbles begin to burst. Flip and cook on the opposite side for 2-3 minutes.

4:Top with your favorite low carb topping: i.e. sliced fruit, melted nut butter, yogurt, etc.

Talk about a super simple recipe that can be done quickly in the morning or the night before, refrigerated, then heated up. It’s a sweet and satisfying start to any day that’s sure to keep you bright-eyed and energized.
