Gluten Free Protein Flax Pancakes

Good morning!

I had some amazing buckwheat pancakes on a recent mini vacation to Palm Springs. They were soooo good. So today, I found myself craving pancakes again. I decided on gluten free, high protein, high fiber pancakes.

These are single serving, so if you want to share, you might want to double the recipe. It will make 3 medium sized pancakes as recorded below.

Gluten Free Protein Flax Pancakes

1/3 cup oats, ground into flour
2 Tbsp ground flax seed
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 egg white
1/3 cup low fat or fat free Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp almond milk (milk of choice)

Heat a skillet sprayed with non stick spray or butter on medium low. Grind rolled or old fashioned oats into flour using a blender or food processor. Mix in the ground flax seed, baking soda, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, whip the egg white until frothy. Then add the yogurt and milk and mix. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry.

Pour 3 medium sized pancakes onto the skillet. Heat for a couple minutes on each side, careful not to overcook. Some pans get hotter than others, so be careful, these are pretty thin pancakes.

Top with nut butter, jam, or pure maple syrup.
