You know what these taste like? Pancakes, that’s what. Way better for you, though, and far, far more filling.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup flax seed meal
  • 1 cup vanilla whey protein powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup oat flour (skip this if you want completely grain-free pancakes)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 25 drops liquid Stevia extract-try plain, vanilla, or English Toffee flavor-all would all be good here.


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients–everything from the flax seed meal through the cinnamon–and stir well to combine.
  2. Spray your biggest skillet (or a griddle) with non-stick cooking spray, and put it over medium-high heat. (If your skillet or griddle has a good non-stick surface–mine does–you can skip the cooking spray.) Let it heat while you…
  3. Whisk the yogurt, eggs and stevia together, then pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Whisk it up well, making sure there are no pockets of dry stuff left.
  4. When your skillet is hot enough that a drop of water will skitter across the surface, it’s time to cook! Scoop the batter with a ¼ cup measure. Fry the first side until the edges look dry, then flip and cook the other side.
  5. Serve with the topping of your choice; I like butter and low-sugar jelly.
