Whole Wheat Oatmeal Flaxseed Pancakes Recipe @pinch

Looking to lighten up your morning breakfast? Give these no haveguilt pancakes a try. With whole grains, flaxseed, and just a hint of sugar, this easy pancake recipe makes you feel like you are starting the day right. The batter is sticky and a bit thick but don't let that fool you. The pancakes turn out light and tender. Drizzle with honey or real maple syrup for an amazing breakfast. My husband loves pancakes and waffles. I wanted to make something a bit healthier. I came across a pancake recipe that he wouldn't have eaten with the ingredients in it, so I deleted those and added some others and ended up with this. We love them and so do my guests. Flax seeds are not only healthy, but they also taste great! I use pure maple syrup on mine because anything else masks the wonderful flavor of the pancakes. The recipe can be halved or doubled. I sent this recipe in to Cooking for Two and it was published in Fall 2008.
