Healthy Flaxseed Meal Pancakes

I've been making these for a while.  They are grain-free, have practically zero net carbs, contain good fiber and good omega-3's, and are pretty versatile!  I use them as breakfast pancakes and as wraps.

Flaxseed Meal Pancakes

  • 6 whole eggs, beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 3/4 c. flaxseed meal
  • 2 tsp. baking powder

Mix wet ingredients first, then add dry ingredients and whisk.  The baking powder mixes in better if stirred together with flaxseed meal before adding.
Heat small skillet or pan (I use a 6 inch cast iron pan) with a bit of butter.  Add scant 1/4 c. of batter when hot and spread around to make a 5 - 6 inch pancake.  Flip when edges look dry -- work carefully to loosen the edges well before flipping.  Fry for another 30 - 45 seconds before removing to a plate.
Makes 6 to 8 pancakes.
