With the weather slowly turning colder, my thoughts are turning more towards some warm, comfort food..the healthy way, if possible. I thought I would share with you one of my favourite breakfast recipies, which also gets a thumbs -up from my 17-month old daughter. Pancakes featuring flax, of course…
I found this recipe quite a while ago in a book by J. Volek and S.Phinney: “The Artand Science of Low Carbohydrate Living” which, by the way, is well-worth reading – particularly if wheat is not your best friend.
The recipe is for pancakes, as I call them, made of ground flax which can be served as a sweet or savoury dish.
The quantities I have used below will be sufficient for one person, so increase them, as appropriate.
Prep time: 5 minutes, cooking: 10 minutes.
1. 3 Tbl spoons of brown or golden flax seeds
2. A pinch of gluten-free baking powder
3. 1 whole egg
4. A dash of water
5. Soft cream cheese, jam, fruit or whatever else you like for topping.
