Get ahold of these homemade fluffy pancakes topped with chia blueberry jam. I don’t know about you but after losing an hour of sleep the other day, other than the bright light in the morning these pancakes are what help me out of bed!
I typically make a batch of pancakes on the weekend and store in the fridge in an airtight container for 2 to 3 days or in the freezer for longer.
Because these pancakes are packed with nutrients and natural sweetness, I had no guilty thoughts when I packed them in the children’s lunch boxes this week!
Food is to be enjoyed as well as to provide our bodies with fuel. These are conversations we have with our clients and cover in our coaching and nutrition education programs. We’re always helping our clients discover new products they can incorporate in their baked goods and meals such as this one. Among other nutritious ingredients this recipe has Milled Roasted Flaxseed from CanmarFoods.com. Flaxseed is a good source of omega-3s, high source of fibre, protein, and lignans which is a plant compound that have antioxidant and estrogen properties, both of which can help lower the risk of cancer and improve health. 1 tablespoon of flaxseed contains 800 times more lignans than whole wheat flour and legumes. Only 1 tablespoon of flaxseed contains up to 30 milligrams of lignans and it’s the amount we used in this recipe! Double up on the ingredients in this recipe to make a dozen fluffy pancakes!
