Number of Servings: 12


    1/2 cup King Arthur white wheat flour
    1/2 cup King Arthur whole wheat flour
    2 tsp. baking powder
    2 Tbsp. white sugar
    6 Tbsp. milled flax seed
    1 egg
    1 cup 1.5% milk


Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl (whisk together). Beat the egg and milk together with a fork, add to the dry ingredients, and stir 'til combined.
Ladle pancake mix onto frying pan (lightly oiled) over med-low heat. Flip pancakes over after about a min. and cook other side. Each pancake should be about 1/4 cup of batter to make 12 cakes. The flax seed replaces the oil in the recipe (3 Tbsp. flax = 1 Tbsp. oil), giving you a thicker batter. Try adding more milk (about 1/4 cup) if this batter is too thick for you.

  • Good
    Next time I'll try adding vanilla and using buttermilk. I put chocolate chips in the kids' pancakes, and they did ask for more. - 12/30/11

  • Incredible!
    These were really good! This was my first time using flax seed, so I was a little anxious, but very pleasantly surprised! I only had wheat flour though, so I used all wheat, and I substituted splenda for the sugar. Also added a splash of vanilla extract for more flavor! Definitely a keeper! - 2/17/11
