Flax Meal Pancakes

It was requested I share my latest pancake concoction with you. 

My flax cakes as I dub them.  (I know-I’m so creative…use flax meal and call them flaxcakes.)


1/2 cup flax meal

¼ cup flour of your choice (wheat, buckwheat, white…)

1 egg (not needed but I like the extra protein)

1 tsp baking powder

Sweetener if you are into that

(then whatever flavors you want…I’ve added a half cup of pumpkin or greek yogurt, both grand choices).

Mix ½ cup HOT (this is important) water with the flax meal.  The flax will soak it up and be more flour consistent if you use hot.  Otherwise they won’t stick).

Then let it sit for a minute or two and add all your other ingredients + water if you want it thinner (it does not matter the temperature).

Then eat.  I’m going through a flax meal craze right now since it’s such a good source of fat and plus the egg, these pancakes offer a really good amount of it.

Question for you:

Do you use flax?

What is your (current) favorite type of pancake?

  1. Yummy looking pancakes! I saw some flax meal at the store the other day and was thinking about buying but didnt end up getting it. I’ll have to go pick it up sometime so I can make these! 🙂
    Pancakes are a favorite food of mine! I looovee protein pancakes. 🙂

  2. Duh – why I don’t add flaxmeal into my pancakes on a regular basis, I don’t know. It’s like if I don’t put it in oatmeal (which I rarely eat) or baked goods, I don’t use it at all.

  3. never used flax before! I guess I should try it. my favorite pancakes in the whole wide world are chocolate chip banana pancakes! you should make those next!!

  4. Thanks for sharing it! I needed a way to use flax so I definitely will be trying this. My favorite pancakes are coconut flour pancakes. I don’t know why but I just love the flavor and texture it brings!
