Coconut and Chia Pancake

This is probably my final pancake creation of the year…. on Christmas Eve morning, I was looking for something a wee bit different from my normal fare. I love my Vanilla and Cinnamon Coconut Pancakes, and this version and this one too, but just wanted something more…

So I added a spoonful of chia seeds to the batter and they not only made it a bit thicker. but really added a nice taste and a bit of crunch, too.  I used 2 eggs in  my batter, but if you want to save a few grams of fat you could use 1/4 cup of egg whites in place of one of the eggs.  Feel free to double the recipe if you want to share with a friend.

The batter is quite thick and you may need to spread it a bit.

There are lots of other pancake recipes in my FEATURE RECIPES  - BREAKFAST section as well.  

There are some with oats, some with whole wheat flour and some grain-free with protein powder.  There are almond butter pancakes, ‘Oreo’ protein pancakes, strawberry pancakes, pumpkin pancakes and banana pancakes… to name only a few.  Something for everyone!  Really. Cottage cheese anyone?

Are you pancake lover too?
