Start your day off with these buttermilk and flaxseed pancakes. There is nothing better than a homemade pancake in the morning and these are quite delicious!!!

Flaxseeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. It’s also great because you can add it to so many foods, particularly when you bake or make things like pancakes!


2 cups buttermilk

2 eggs

1 Tbsp. butter- melted

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose white flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

2-3Tbsp. Sugar

1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed

Cooking spray or coconut oil to cook the pancakes (I prefer coconut oil)



Stir the flour, baking soda, sugar, salt, and flax until well mixed. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Cover the skillet with about 1-2 tablespoon of coconut oil. Pour batter by the ¼ cup into the skillet.

Cook for about 3 minutes before flipping — the edges should look set and the spatula should easily slide under to flip. Flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes or so until browned and cooked through.

Serve topped with maple syrup, bananas, fresh berries or pecans — whatever your favorite toppings are.
