Flaxseed Meal Pancakes with Walnuts

I have known about flaxseed from my childhood – someone told my mom that it’s very healthy for kids and she gave me whole tablespoon of seeds every day. Yeah, about a week or two… I just chewed it and, sort of, liked its taste. But we thought about it as medicine and nether use it for cooking. If only we knew…

Flaxseeds meal not only healthy (omega-3!) but tasty too. With walnuts it made the great taste. This pancakes recipe, inspired by Epicurious.com (Bon Appétit  | January 2004).

Flaxseed Meal Pancakes with Walnuts


Yield: 8 pancakes

1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup flaxseed meal* (from Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods)
2 tbsp. finely chopped walnuts
1 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup reduced-fat (2%) milk
1 tbsp. sugar
2 large egg (I used Better-n-egg)

For serving: maple syrup

Whisk flour, flaxseed meal, walnuts, baking powder, sugar, and salt in medium bowl to blend, add milk and eggs whisk just until incorporated.

Spray skillet lightly with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Spoon batter onto skillet and cook until bubbles begin to form. Flip, and continue cooking until golden brown on bottom. Serve immediately with condiments of your choice. Serve with maple syrup.

*Sold at natural foods stores and some supermarkets. If flaxseed meal isn’t available, buy flaxseeds and use a spice grinder or coffee mill to grind them into a fine powder
