Delicious, served with homemade wfpb nutella.
Why the extra step of cooking the flax seed? Is there a health or cooking benefit? My pancakes turned out tasting good but the dough just stuck to the skillet and the pancakes looked messy. I cooked them with an iron skillet and then tried with a stainless steel pan. I spray with avocado oil. I have never had issues proceeding like this with other pancake recipes.
These are very good! I used spelt flour and Bobs Mill egg replacement instead of flax and buckwheat flour and they turned out perfect.
They turned out very yummy. I used spelt flour instead of buckwheat flour and cooked them about 3-4 min per side.
Forgot to include star rating in my original review post
Really enjoyed these pancakes, my family loved as well. Would highly recommend giving it a try
Made this today with whole wheat (as I only had full grain buckwheat for cereal ) and I doubled recipe to then freeze the extra for later use. These are delicious! Topped them with berries and pure maple syrup….divine!…Oh and absolutely no need for the extra steps of heating flax meal on the stove…just 1Tbs flax meal to 3 Tbs water is PERFECT! Why the extra step?,,,,bizarre.
Thank you, Courtney. The flax prep had me perplexed. Now I can make them with confidence that they will be delicious.
I forgot to add….I made these as waffles vs pancakes…and they’re PERFECT! No oil needed on the plates either!
These turned out great ! Only thing I did different was I didn’t strain the flaxseed meal mixture. After letting it set for a few mins I added it all into the other liquid.
used almond milk, and a glass pan. they were gummy inside burnt outside done a low heat used oil for the pan.
Excellent. Just watch the pan – the pancakes cook much more quickly than 8 minutes per side – or else you just have to turn the heat down to the lowest setting. I made mine with walnut pieces instead of coconut, and I also put some blueberries in the batter, and I skipped the chocolate chips.
You Shouldn’t have used oil….these turned out PERFECT in the waffle maker!
Best pancakes I’ve ever had. And I’ve made a lot of pancakes.
Curious if these freeze well.
