I've done a lot of experimenting with flourless pancakes and came up with this version recently. So far these are my favorite! They taste best with maple syrup and a dollop of whipped cream on top if you have some handy. My kids like to use cookie cutters to make shapes out of these pancakes before they gobble them up. Enjoy!

Instructions Checklist

  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Drop small spoonfuls of batter into the skillet. Cook until bubbles form and edges look dry, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Cook's Notes:

These pancakes will be very thin. Dollar-size pancakes work best. You can make this recipe without flaxseed meal and the pancakes will still hold together.

You can also cook these on a griddle heated to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

These were almost like a crepe batter at first. After allowing the flax to gel they came out more like a pancake. They are pretty tasty. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I only used 2 eggs in this recipe added 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed and a dash of nutmeg. They tasted phenomenal. I will definitely make them again. My boyfriend is on a keto diet and we had been searching for a decent pancake recipe. This is the first one we've tried that will get made more than once! Read More

Recipe as written is great! I wouldn t change a thing. It s a great alternative to traditional pancakes that do not agree with my stomach. Although thin I made several stacked them to the thickness of a regular pancake and enjoyed them just as much as a regular pancake. Read More
