apple flax pancakes

Weekends are special. They’re set aside for family time, little getaways, that desk you’ve been meaning to stain, and, importantly, breakfast in your pajamas watching Netflix. Now before you go find the biggest bowl for your Saturday morning almond milk and cereal routine, consider apple flax pancakes! With a little extra time on your hands this weekend, try making this extra-special pancake recipe that is packed with fiber and omega-3 essential fatty acids. You won’t even realize there is no sugar added! In fact, you may want to double the recipe and freeze the extra so that you can have a glimmer of your special Saturday morning all week long.

Make sure you use a non-stick pan instead of greasing a pan. This will eliminate any added fat in the recipe. These apple flax pancakes are an excellent source of fiber from whole grains and applesauce.

Happy cooking!

Apple Flax Pancakes


  • 1 1/2 cups whole grain flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (or Pink Himalyan rock salt)
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 GSG Sprouted Flax eggs (see below)
  • 1 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup carob chips
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconuts


  1. Mix flour, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir until just combined.
  2. Warm a non-stick pan over medium heat. Pour 1/3 cup batter onto pan into a pancake. When one side is cooked, flip to other side.
  3. Top with applesauce, carob chips, shredded coconut, and any other healthy toppings you like.

GSG Recipe apple flax pancakesHere’s how to substitute GSG Sprouted Flax for an egg:

    This question is for Robyn Openshaw, Green Smoothie Girl. I’d like to know which cookware you use and recommend, and why? Do you know about Saladmaster Cookware? Thanks!

    1. Robyn says:

      KC, I do like Saladmaster. I just avoid copper and aluminum pots. Stainless steel is great.
