Flax-Chia Seed Whole Grain Pancakes

0

I’m obsessed with my kids getting more fiber. They are obsessed with pancakes. So I just hit them where the love is.

It started one morning when they were harassing me for pancakes and I was an easy target because of no coffee intake as of yet. They know when to strike. I got everything together for them and realized no eggs. So I whipped up some flax eggs, because I have a mountain of ground flax seed in my freezer (come on, doesn’t everyone??).  And while I was at it, why not throw in some chia for even more fiber and nutrients!

This little guy approves.
