STARTING YOUR MORNING with a healthy, super-charged breakfast is important to get your day off on the right foot.

Instead of reaching for a box of sugar filled cereal or picking up fast food on the way to work, try these easy to make, superfood pancakes.

These pancakes are packed with nutrients, from wholesome oat flour to antioxidant rich honey. However, the real star in the recipe are the flaxseeds.

Flaxseeds can help you improve digestion, clear your skin, lower cholesterol, reduce sugar cravings, balance hormones, fight cancer and promote weight loss.

These pancakes are gluten-free as well as dairy free, making them an excellent breakfast choice for those with gluten or dairy allergies.

Some of the ingredients you won’t pick up down your local supermarket but the key to healthy living is preparation – and we promise they’re worth the extra effort.

Ingredients (Makes 12 pancakes):

  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons honey


  1. In a small bowl whisk together the almond milk and lemon juice. Set it aside.
  2. In a large bowl mix the oat flour, ground flaxseed, baking powder, and sea salt together.
  3. Once almond milk mixture has curdled slightly, whisk in the egg, vanilla extract and honey.
  4. Slowly incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry.
  5. Once everything is mixed through, scoop 1/4 cup of the batter and pour onto a heated pan.
  6. Cook until bubbles appear, then flip.
