“These delicious, nutritious pancakes are a real treat for low-carbers, quick and easy to make. I adapted this recipe from another website: Add to the basic recipe with a few chopped nuts, blueberries, chocolate chips, etc., but remember that they will add some carbs to the whole count, which is under 10 for the entire recipe of more than 8 pancakes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grind the flax seeds in a coffee grinder, making approximately 1/4 cup of meal.
  2. Add baking powder, protein powder, salt and sweetner to the meal.
  3. In a separate small bowl beat the eggs with the vanilla and heavy cream.
