Whole Wheat Chia Pancakes with Maple Coconut Peanut Butter Sauce

Posted Aug 09 2010 9:45am

That title is a mouthful!

I was going to blog my tofu recipe from last night, but my breakfast this morning was so good that I am going to have to postpone that until tomorrow. These pancakes were better anyways ;)

I started out by using my Honey Whole Wheat Pancake Recipe , but I added the some chia seeds to pack an extra nutritional punch. You can read about the health benefits here .

Whole Wheat Chia Pancakes

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Soak the chia seeds in the non dairy milk overnight to make a “chia gel”.
  2. In the morning, whisk together flour, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Whisk in chia gel, oil, and eggs. Let stand 10 minutes (if batter thickens, stir in 1 tablespoon water or milk).
  3. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium heat. Spoon in 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Cook until bubbles appear. Flip, and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes.

If you look closely, you can see the chia seeds!

While the pancakes were cooking, I made a quick maple coconut peanut butter sauce as a topping.

SO FREAKING GOOD.

This was honestly the best breakfast I have had in a LONG TIME. It has all of my favorite ingredients packed onto one plate. I am so glad I have leftovers for tomorrow :)
