Cinnamon Flax Pancakes

Cinnamon Flax Pancakes

These healthy cinnamon flax pancakes are the fluffiest pancakes you’ll ever make! Mostly plant-based, these pancakes are wholesome, packed with heart-healthy omega 3’s, and a generous dose of earthy cinnamon.

Sunday mornings are reserved for pancakes. On that note, we’ve been so busy lately that I’ve been resorting to cereal, even on Sunday mornings when I should have the extra time to prepare them! Albeit the kids love cereal and happily oblige whenever it’s served to them, they do love mom’s pancakes and get so excited whenever discover I’m making them for breakfast. There’s just something about sitting around the table all together on a lazy Sunday morning, enjoying a delicious homemade breakfast with all the fixings. More importantly, these pancakes are easily stored in the freezer, which means they make a quick and easy weekday breakfast for the family, or even easy school lunches for the kids.

This recipe for cinnamon flax pancakes is a relatively old recipe, and has been stashed in my archives for quite some time now. How unfortunate for us that I haven’t taken advantage of this delicious recipe for so long! We all devoured them – me, mostly while I was preparing them! You’ll be amazed at how fluffy and thick these pancakes pillow up as you cook them, all while the sides turn crispy and browned. It’s the perfect combination of a crispy exterior and an airy and light interior. They’re so tasty and delicious on their own, but of course taste even better smothered with rich maple syrup. Serve them any which way your heart desires – whichever way you choose, these pancakes will be the star of the show, and the family will be begging for more.

Ingredients
    2 cups unsweetened coconut milk (or milk of choice), at room temperature
  • 2 large organic eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup raw honey or pure maple syrup 
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla bean powder or 1 tsp. pure vanilla
  • 3 tsp. ground flax
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 heaping tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. pink Himalayan sea salt 
  • Extra virgin coconut oil (butter or cooking spray), quantity as needed
Directions

Whisk the egg in a large bowl until frothy then add the wet ingredients and whisk again until combined. Sift in the dry ingredients then fold the batter together gently with a wooden spoon or spatula until thoroughly combined and smooth.

In a large saucepan heat about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil on medium heat until melted. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the batter and dollop it into the middle of the pan. Repeat 2 or 3 more times, depending on how many pancakes you can fit in the pan. Cook the pancakes for about 2 minutes or until they start to bubble along the edge and feel firm on the bottom. Flip with a large spatula and cook for another 2 minutes on the other side or until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more coconut oil each time, if needed. Store in the fridge for about one week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

  • I love making food and freezing it. It makes like so much easier. I’ve done breakfast sandwiches before but never don’t pancakes before. I think that’s just because it’s always just me and my son so I don’t really have many to make for. I am going to have try this recipe though! It sounds awesome!!!

  • Ugh! Pancakes are my weakness for sure! These look amazing.

    We’re Sunday morning breakfast in bed people and my husband’s specialty is pancakes! I can’t wait to try these .. it’s wonderful that they’re dairy free and made with mostly natural ingredients. I’m sure we’ll be topping them with fruit and extra syrup

    I have everything that I need for this recipe in my pantry right now except for the flax. I have never cooked with it before, but your recipe has inspired me. It looks delicious and sounds healthy!

  • I’ve never tried cinnamon flax pancakes, but these look very tasty! Years ago, my wife and I used to make these microwave cake type things that were recommended on the Atkins Diet. That’s the only thing I knowingly made with flax. A different and healthy choice. My wife and I like pancakes and this could be something to try.

  • Oh these look DELICIOUS! My children love pancakes and are always wanting to try new things, I will save this for future use!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog Twist & Sprinkle! xxo

      Thanks…when you do try them, please let me know how they turn out!

  • We are so into pancakes around here! So easy to freeze a batch for mornings you don’t have time to cook. I’m seriously making these, but I’ll probably end up eating them all myself!

    • Lisa @bitesforbabies 4 years ago

      I would love to hear what you think of them…if you like sweet pancakes you might want to add more sweetener! 😉

  • monica 4 years ago

    I needed a new pancake recipe and why didn’t I ever think about freezing them?! Your pancakes look delicious!

    • Lisa @bitesforbabies 4 years ago

      You’ve never thought of freezing them?! You’ve been missing out, lol! My parents take the kids all week so they usually prepare snacks and sometimes lunch (if I don’t send over leftovers). When I do have a stash of these in the freezer I just remove them the morning of and send them to my parents….or I save them for the weekend (besides, I’m too busy cooking other things on the weekend!!!).
