Fibre & Protein Packed Pancakes

This is a regular breakfast option for me when I know I need a breakfast that will keep me feeling fuller for longer than usual (ie. if I have a late morning meeting that will likely go over time or I’m presenting a lunchtime seminar so lunch will be delayed). It’s also perfect for mornings after I do a strength workout as it it is packed with protein.

These pancakes are not created to be a light fluffy weekend brunch pancake (although you will find those pancakes here), they are a dense pancake where the flavour comes from what you serve it with. With 2 eggs for a great protein hit, and flaxseed meal plus coconut flour for fibre you’re ticking two boxes that are often missed at breakfast time. You can keep them savoury and serve with wilted greens, avocado and hummus or like I have here, serve on the sweet side with kefir, strawberries and mint.

I have not used a sweetener but feel free to add a touch of honey/maple syrup or stir through some berries if you need to make more palatable for kids.

Whisk the eggs and milk together and then stir in the flaxseed meal, coconut flour and cinnamon. Heat a pan to medium heat and pour the mixture into two pancakes (spread out with a spoon if you need to). Cook for 2-3 minutes and then flip and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
