Whole Wheat Pancakes with Cinnamon and Flax-Seed

I love making pancakes in the morning, on weekends, or even for a quick dinner. The mix of whole wheat flour and rye flour makes these healthy, and filling. I like to make a batch of these and portion them out to freeze so I can have them at the ready when my craving hits. These pancakes are a great go to; to start the day!

Yield: 16 pancakes


1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup rye flour

4 ½ tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

½ tsp. nutmeg

1 tbsp. natural cane sugar

1 scoop protein powder

2tbsp. flax-seed

2 eggs

3 cups almond milk



In a medium bowl combine all dry ingredients together; whole wheat flour, rye flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, protein powder, and flax-seed.

In a small bowl add the almond milk with the eggs and whisk until well combined.

Using a mixer with the paddle attachment, add in the milk and egg mixture. Next add in the dry mixture in a third at a time; mixing in between. Mix until just combined, and try not to over mix.

Heat a medium skillet on medium high. Spay with olive oil and cook the pancakes 2-3 minutes on each side and serve.
