When making the transition from processed food to healthier food, we have definitely had our share of cravings. Our solution: creating and finding healthier food substitutes.

One morning, we got a pang for pancakes and created an incredible treat that calls for only 3 ingredients (flax seed, water and bananas)! This means delicious pancakes with no eggs, no flour, no milk and the list goes on.

We used a yummy egg substitute made from ground flax seed and water. 5 minutes together and they created an ooey gooey, egg-like substance, perfect for cooking. Flax seeds and oil are high in fiber and omega-3 and low in carbohydrates. We’re hooked on these tiny, versatile super seeds!

It’s amazing: The simple flax seed egg substitute, mixed with blended bananas makes a perfect batter for our inspired pancakes. We prefer coconut oil over butter for cooking, which adds a really lovely flavor to the pancakes. When plating, we’ve found shaved coconut and a little drizzle of pecan syrup makes this treat picture perfect. Enjoy the recipe below!
