Getting omega-3 into you diet by consuming healthy oils could not be easier thanks to this super yummy pancake recipe. These pancakes are light, fluffy, and utterly delicious!
As we covered in an earlier blog post this week, flaxseeds are fantastic for for your health and full of goodness! Not only do they aid digestion but they’re also good for protecting the body against free-radical damage and disease. Maple syrup is also a healthy addition to this recipe and is what makes these pancakes extra delicious! Maple syrup contains a range of minerals, such as manganese, magnesium, calcium and potassium – all of which are essential to your continued good health! Maple syrup also contains an abundance of riboflavin which aids the metabolic process.
To make enough pancakes to feed four people, you will need the following ingredients:
1/2 a cup / 5oz / 150g wholewheat (all-purpose) flour
2 tbsp of flaxseed oil plus extra for cooking
1 tsp of baking powder
1/4 tsp of baking soda
1/2 a cup / 4fl oz / 125ml of dairy-free milk
2 tbsp of maple syrup
The first thing you will need to do is place all of the ingredients in a large bowl and beat until the mixture forms a smooth batter.
You can then drizzle a little flaxseed oil into a small skillet (frying pan or pancake pan) and set on a medium heat. When the oil is hot, pour two or three tablespoons of the batter into the skillet so that it covers the bottom of the pan in a thin layer. Pay close attention as the pancake cooks and turn the pancake after approximately four minutes to cook the other side. Once each pancake is cooked you can remove from the pan and repeat with the rest of the batter.
Once all of your batter has been used up, drizzle your stack of pancakes with a little more maple syrup and top with your favourite berries or slices of banana. Serve immediately and enjoy!
