Almond Butter-Flaxseed Pancakes

December 28, 2011

Since I have been obsessed with almond butter for quite some time, I thought I would try my hand at making these Almond Butter Flaxseed Pancakes. You combine almond butter with your favorite homemade or store-bought pancake mix, flaxseed meal (which can be found at most local groceries), banana and even nonfat Greek yogurt. My kids went nuts over these, and I felt great serving them such an incredibly healthy breakfast. They called them, “Banana-Nut Pancakes” which was a great name. These pancakes taste great reheated, and they make a great healthy afternoon snack. Enjoy anytime of the year, but they are perfect for a healthy Christmas break, New Year’s or weekend breakfast.

Almond Butter-Flaxseed Pancakes

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Yield: 16 servings
2 cups pancake mix
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 Mix in blender:
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons creamy almond butter
1 egg
1 banana
1/3 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons melted butter (optional)
1 Honey or warmed maple syrup
1.Combine pancake mix, flaxseed meal and cinnamon in a small bowl; set aside.

2. Combine almond butter, egg, banana, yogurt and honey in a blender and process until combined. Add 11/4 cups water and flaxseed mixture, stirring just until combined.

4. Pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto a hot, lightly greased griddle. Use butter, if desired. Cook pancakes until tops are covered with bubbles and edges appear cooked; turn and cook other side. Serve pancakes with honey or warm maple syrup.

Note: You can easily half this recipe.
Note: Flaxseed meal can be found in the \\\\\\\"healthy\\\\\\\" section of the grocery store.

You had me at "almond butter"

I love combining banana with peanut butter but I'm game to do almond butter too. I've seen you do other things recently with flax seed; can I assume it's added for nutritional value but really alters the taste very little?

These look fabulous! I'd probably make them with SunButter in place of the almond butter due to my allergy. Lovely breakfast!!

The batter came out more like dough and I had to add about 2 cups of water. Did I miss something?

[...] Again, these can be prepared the night before and served cold or warm. Add flaxseed to your batter for extra nutrients, especially omega-3 fatty acids. Here is a recipe for Mama’s Milkie Morning Pancakes. And here is another delicious recipe, Almond Butter-Flaxseed Pancakes. [...]

If you wanted a flour-less option of this you could just take out the pancake mix and add another egg. I have a gluten free pancake recipe that only calls for 1 mashed banana and 2 eggs, and you could add almond butter and cinnamon. It's really similar to the recipe above. So I figure keep the other ingredients and add an egg. You may have to figure out measurements to keep the same consistency and texture but I think I'll try it.
