Buttermilk Flaxseed Pancakes

These are quite delicious. They hail from my friend Becca, whose husband’s dad has been making them since he can remember. I tasted them when I was visiting with her family (she’s my BFF Laura’s big sis) in San Diego and have finally gotten around to making them myself.

Our babe is still a little young for pancakes, but these are great kid food too. In fact it’s one of Becca’s son’s staple menu items.

Do you want to hear a most satisfying detail? We made butter on Friday night and the leftover buttermilk went into our pancakes. How great is that? I was very pleased. And the homemade butter is something else. It’s so creamy.

Buttermilk Flaxseed Pancakes

1 c all purpose flour
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c ground flaxseed meal
2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt

4 T melted butter
2 eggs
2 c buttermilk

Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk eggs until well mixed. Add butter and whisk until well combined. Add buttermilk and mix.

Fold in dry ingredients until just combined.

Grease skillet with butter (or oil) and I think everyone knows how to make pancakes. I added sliced bananas to some of ours and they were delicious.

If you want to skip the buttermilk you can substitute 2/3 cup of yogurt and 1 1/3 cup of water (or possibly milk?). Which makes them, I don’t know, possibly healthier?

Either way they are delicious.

    in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed information. Wonderful read!

    Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
    I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same
    blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    funny material too.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and
    without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to
    be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without
    having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
