Recipe: Filling Fibre Pancakes

Foodsmiths Recipe by Deb

One day in our Natural Body Care dept. at Foodsmiths we were discussing sugar and the need to cut down on sweet treats. Our manager, Deb, who is very sensitive to sugar, admitted that she has a huge sweet tooth! Her way of handling sugar cravings was to cook up her special pancakes in the morning. "They fill me up so completely I don't eat again until dinner." said Deb. "And I satisfy my sweet tooth with a splash of maple syrup on the pancakes. Because I combine lots of fibre with the sugar in the maple syrup, I don't have a reaction to the sugar like I would if I ate a cookie." Deb's recipe has an added bonus: the pancakes puff up nice and thick!

You will need...

  • 1 cup Coyote Brand Pancake Mix in Flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp Healthy Heart Mix (available in our bulk)
  • 1 scoop unflavoured or vanilla protein powder (optional)
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup Greek or Skyr Yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 large tbsp coconut oil, melted

Put it together...

In a large bowl combine pancake mix, Healthy Heart Mix, and protein powder (if using). In separate bowl whisk together milk, egg, yogurt and oil. Pour liquid ingredients into dry and combine until mixed, but don't over stir. Heat skillet or fry pan (add another dab of coconut oil to fry pan if needed). Drop batter by spoonfuls (batter is quite thick, if you prefer it thinner add more milk when stirring dry and liquid ingredients together. Or smooth pancake out with back of spoon). Cook through. Serve with real maple syrup, or your favourite fruit or topping.
