“The original version of this tasty recipe comes from Brandi Waters and was published in the Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook. I made some changes due to my taste preferences and really liked the result. I hope you will like these, too. The pancakes come out thick and hearty with a lovely nutty taste from the addition of flax seeds. You can also bake this recipe as waffles, but Ive not tried that yet.”
6 pancakes
