Recipe

I want to call these magic pancakes. They are packed with good for you ingredients (Greek yogurt, flaxseed meal, antioxidant rich berries, and eggs), are low carb, packed with protein, freeze great, can be adapted lots of ways (add bananas, chia seeds, blueberries, nuts, chocolate chips, etc), and taste delicious. Seriously.

The basic pancake mix is based on yogurt, flaxseed meal, and eggs. From there you can mix up the toppings however you like, but my favorite is this warm berry compote. Make up a big batch and keep them in the freezer for quick breakfasts. Love ricotta? You can substitute all or part of the yogurt with low fat ricotta as well. Yum and still low carb!

Directions

  1. Place the berries in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Let simmer for 10 minutes or until they begin to break down and form a sauce. If desired, add sweetener of your choice.
  2. Mix together the eggs, yogurt, flax seed meal, baking powder, salt, sweetener, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Let sit for 5 minutes for the flax to thicken up.
  3. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Spray with cooking spray. Using 1/4 cup batter, pour in the pancake batter and spread out with a spoon if needed. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side.
  4. Serve with warm berry sauce.
