  • Phase 2
  • Prep Time: 20 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 Minutes
  • Serves: 4-6


  • 11/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 13/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a large bowl, mix whole wheat flour, ground flaxseed, cinnamon, sugar, and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together skim milk, egg and vanilla. Pour wet mixture into flour mixture and stir until combined.
  3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Spray with oil before spooning batter into pan. Reduce heat to medium-low. When tiny bubbles appear on top side of pancake, flip and cook for approximately 2 more minutes or until golden and cooked through.
  4. Serve with toppings such as fresh fruit, no-sugar jams, or 1 tsp peanut butter or almond butter. In order to release the oil in flaxseed, it is necessary to grind the seeds into flax meal. All it takes is a few seconds in a coffee grinder.
