  • 1/2 cup golden flax seeds, finely ground

  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 2 tablespoons maple sugar (optional)
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • For the pancakes:

For the pancake mix combine flax seeds, flour, cornmeal, oats, dry milk, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.

For the pancakes, put 1 cup of the pancake mix, egg, oil and water into a large bowl and stir together with a fork just until combined. For each pancake, pour about 1/3 cup of the pancake batter onto a greased griddle and cook, flipping once, until golden brown and cooked through.
