Healthy Whole Wheat {eggless} Flaxseed, Banana Pancakes

Okay thoughts of the New Year are upon us & I love healthy foods that taste great!  I came up with this recipe as we were out of eggs.  Necessity is the mother of invention, right?  The girls requested pancakes & here they are!  The recipe is super easy & totally kid approved!  My youngest, who normally eats pretty much nothing, ate 2!

1 c of Whole Wheat Flour
1.5 tsp of granulated sugar
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
2 tsp of baking soda
1 tbl of ground flaxseed meal
1 pinch of kosher table salt
1 c of almond milk (vanilla flavored) or you can use low fat white milk
1 heaping tablespoon of applesauce
1 tbl water
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbl of melted butter or I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter (lower calories)
1 ripe banana chopped up into smaller chunks


Combine all of the dry ingredients in your mixing bowl.  Add the wet ingredients and mix with a whisk.  Avoid over-mixing.  Add the banana last.
Spray your skillet with a nonstick spray.  Heat a large skillet over medium flame.  SWhen hot, ladle some batter into the pan.  Flip the pancake when bubbles appear & the side down that is cooking is golden brown.
You can certainly add any variety of fruit you like – blueberries, blackberries etc.  Again, add at the end of the blending process and mix by hand.  I added chocolate chips with the bananas.  I used a palmful to gauge the quantity.
