I don’t know about you, but I really miss a good plate of PANCAKES for breakfast!
Well, last week I saw a PBS special explaining how important getting enough omega3 is for your health… and how important it is to get 3000 milligrams a day!
I’ve been taking pills, but she recommended using organic cold milled golden flax – in smoothies… But I had a better idea, you guessed it, PANCAKES!
I soon found that not all flax is the same though… To make good low carb pancakes (1 effective carb) you need to start with organic cold-milled golden flax (I recommend the one in the picture above).
You can get really fancy with the recipe, but I just use a fork and whip up an egg with a few teaspoons of water, two tablespoons of flax, cinnamon to taste and a dash of salt.
Then cook a large pancake on a frying pan with a little olive or coconut oil or make 3 smaller pancakes (easier to flip) – in low heat.
Once on the plate you can use the best sugar free maple syrup I’ve ever tasted… (click image for details).
I like these pancakes so much, that I’ve made them without the cinnamon and used them as a tortilla for burritos! It’s great for when you want a quick bread-like texture… Give it a try and let me know how you use flax…
Till next time…
