  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed or chia seeds
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cup almond milk or milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil


  • Make your flax egg. Mix the ground flax seed with 2 ½ tablespoon of water and set side until thick and gelatinous. I have made these with 'chia eggs' and they worked just as well.
  • In a medium sized bowl mix together all the dry ingredients.
  • In a separate bowl mix together all the wet ingredients including the thickened flax egg.
  • Make a small well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture. Mix carefully until the ingredients are just incorporated - don't worry if there are a couple of lumps, this is fine.
  • Heat the pan over medium-high heat and add some coconut oil (or cooking oil of choice). Drop a little bit of batter into the pan and make sure it fizzles before adding enough batter for a whole pancake.
  • Pour ¼ cup of batter into the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes until bubbles form on the top. Flip and repeat. Depending on the size of the pan you should be able to do a few at a time.
  • Serve with whatever takes your fancy. We love fresh berries and maple syrup.
