Saturday morning is pancake morning at our house, and these are our favourite pancakes to eat.
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tbsp tsp baking powder
1 tbsp flaxseed meal
1 cup milk
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup blueberries
1 cup bananas, mashed or chopped (however you prefer)
In a measuring cup, combine milk and lemon juice and let it sit while you combine flours, baking powder, and flax in a bowl. Add milk/lemon juice, egg, blueberries and bananas to dry ingredients. Let batter sit while you heat the grill. When grill is ready, spray with cooking spray and pour batter to form pancakes. Cook for a few minutes on each side until golden. Serve with maple syrup.
*Tip- for cutting kids’ pancakes, use a pizza cutter.
I used to buy a flaxseed pancake mix and add my ingredients to that, but now I just make it from scratch. It’s not that much more work and it’s a lot cheaper that way. The kids love them just as much too. They love pancake morning. Every morning Cole asks me if it’s Saturday yet. This recipe makes about 8 pancakes. If we have any left over (which we often do because Tony doesn’t eat breakfast), I freeze them and use them for snacks. All I do is pop them in the toaster for a few minutes. The kids will just eat them with their hands like a big cookie, no syrup needed.
