Servings 4 pancakes


  • 3 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon stevia in the raw or preferred low cal sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • butter about 1 tablespoon


  • In a small bowl combine flaxseed meal, stevia, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  • Whisk in eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Add butter to griddle or frying pan and heat to medium heat. I set my griddle at about 250°F.
  • Pour out pancakes in about 1/4 cup portions - I use a ladle. You should get 4 - 5 pancakes.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes or until set and golden brown, flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy. I serve with butter and an assortment of syrups & jams. Sugar free syrup, real maple syrup, chocolate syrup....
  • NOTE This recipe makes about 4 pancakes - 1 hearty serving. Recipe can easily be tripled or doubled. These pancakes are great made ahead and reheated.
