There’s nothing like a long week at the beach, lake, or the Grandparents house to catch up as a family and enjoy the summer together.

Kicking off your vacation days with these Whole Wheat Pancakes with Flaxseed will keep you charged up for long days of fun and sun!


1 cup stone ground whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 TBSP flaxseed (or ground flaxseed meal)
1 TBSP baking Powder

1 Large Egg
2 TBSP melted unsalted butter
1/4 cup 2% or Fat-Free Greek Yogurt
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup pure Maple Syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Toppings: Mixed berries, Low-fat cottage cheese, Fruit preserves, Nut butter of choice

Combine the dry ingredients and mix with a fork in one bowl.Whisk the liquid ingredients together in a separate bowl and then quickly stir into the combined dry ingredients just until blended.

Drop batter in 1/4 cupful onto a heated greased griddle. Cook until bottoms are golden and small bubbles start to form on top, 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook until the other side is browned, 1-2 minutes.

Top and enjoy! Makes 4 to 6 servings.
