We love these light and fluffy pancakes exactly the way this picture shows: with a little dab of almond butter and sliced bananas.

Simple Pancakes (Diabetes Undone Edition)

 ¾ cup whole-wheat flour
 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
 1 tbsp baking powder
 2 tbsp agave nectar
 1 tbsp water
 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax seeds + 3 tbsp water)
 1 ½ cups unsweetened soy or almond milk
 ½ tsp salt

Make the flax egg by mixing 1 tablespoon ground flax with 3 tablespoons of water and letting it sit for 10 minutes. The consistency should resemble that of an egg.


Combine the dry ingredients (whole wheat flour, white flour, baking powder, salt) and mix well. When the dry ingredients are well-incorporated, add the liquid ingredients (agave nectar, flax egg, water, and milk). Stir the ingredients gently and no more than necessary, just enough to combine. This is done in order to prevent the baking powder from becoming active and resulting in a very thin pancake


Pour ½ cup rounds of the batter onto a heated griddle or pan over medium heat and cook for about 3 minutes. When the edges start to bubble, flip the pancakes over and cook until the other side is golden-brown.


Serve with fresh fruit, jam, or real maple syrup.

Note: While mixing the batter, more water may be necessary to reach the desired consistency.
