Breakfast Tip For Healthy Eating Recipe – Maple, Walnut, and Flaxseed Pancakes

These pancakes, made with walnuts and flaxseed, contain health-promoting fats. Add whey protein or have them with a side of eggs and your favorite fruit and you’ve got the perfect breakfast.

 

Preparation (Makes 12 Pancakes)

Whisk flour, flaxseed meal, walnuts, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. In a separate medium bowl, whisk buttermilk, 1/4 cup maple syrup and egg. Add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients and whisk just until incorporated.

Brush a large nonstick skillet lightly with vegetable oil and heat over medium heat. Working in batches, add batter to skillet by scant ¼-cupfuls. Cook until bubbles appear on surface of pancakes and undersides are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Turn pancakes over and cook until golden on bottom, about 2 minutes. Brush skillet lightly with vegetable oil as needed between batches. Transfer pancakes to plates. Serve with additional maple syrup.

*Sold at natural foods stores and some supermarkets. If flaxseed meal isn’t available, buy flaxseeds and use a spice grinder or coffee mill to grind them into a fine powder.
