I feel like I spend 75% of my time thinking about food, this is due to two factors: firstly I am perpetually hungry, I could sit down and eat at anytime regardless of how much I have eaten so far that day. The second is obviously that I love to cook and try new recipes so my brain is always spinning thinking of new things to try. So when I woke up on Saturday morning my first thought was obviously, what am I going to make for breakfast. I decided that I really really wanted pancakes, but in an effort to be healthy and due to the fact that I am going to be in a bikini in less than 2 weeks I wanted to make them better for me. and so my super pancakes were born! I used both flax and chia seeds to add texture, I made them with almond milk as well to add nuttiness but also to cut back on the diary.
This is an awesome breakfast recipe for one, it makes 3 pancakes, a perfect porition for someone who needs a substantial breakfast like I do, you can easily double the recipe if you're making breakfast for someone else ;) ;)
ps. and before you think I've gone absolutely crazy with this health kick, I put butter on them after I cooked them.
Chia & Flax Blueberry Pancakes
- 1/3 c flour (G-free or G-full)
- 2 tbs chia seeds
- 2 tbs flax seeds
- 1/2 c almond milk (or regular milk)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbs agave nectar
- 1/2 c blueberries
- Maple Syrup
combine the wet and dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Lightly grease a medium not stick skillet and heat to medium temperature. Ladle 1/3 of the mixture into pan, sprinkle with blueberries and flip once the pancake batter's bubbles have popped. Flip and cook the other side until browned. Repeat 3 times. Serve with warm maple syrup or more agave nectar.
