Flaxseed Pancakes

Getting omega-3 into you diet by eating oils couldn’t be easier with this super yummy pancake recipe. Light, fluffy, and utterly delicious!


Serves 2

½ cup/5oz/150g whole wheat (all-purpose) flour

2 tbsp flaxseed oil plus extra for cooking

1 tsp baking powder (bicarbonate of soda)

¼ tsp baking soda

½ cup/4fl oz/125ml dairy-free milk

2 tbsp maple syrup



Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and beat until the mixture forms a smooth batter.

Drizzle a little flaxseed oil into a small skillet (frying or pancake pan) set on a medium heat.

When the oil is hot, pour about 2–3 tablespoons of the batter into the skillet so that it covers the bottom of the pan in a thin layer.

Turn the pancake after approximately 4 minutes and cook the other side. Repeat with the rest of the batter.

Drizzle with a little more maple syrup and top with your favourite berries or slices of banana. Serve immediately!
