Flaxseed Pancakes

I have found several breakfast recipes from Mr. Breakfast. Here is his original recipe for the flaxseed pancakes.

Low-Carb Pancakes (Flax Seed)1 serving


  • 1/2 cup of ground flax seed meal
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of cream
  • 3 Tablespoons of cottage cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons of oil or melted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Simply mix together all the ingredients with a whisk - batter should be a bit runny. Cook on a lightly greased skillet as you would any pancake recipe. Drop batter on surface large spoonfuls. 

Cook until each side is lightly browned. 

Serve with butter and a low-carb store bought syrup. Or for an interesting low-carb topping, mix 1 Tablespoon of sugar-free jam with 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons water and microwave for 45 seconds.

For more low-carb recipes try Mr Breakfast's Low-Carb Breakfast Index.


Satisfy your pancake craving with only 13 grams of carbs. Ground flax is the base for the batter while cottage cheese provides moistness and flavor.


Mr Breakfast would like to thank CurbingCarbs for this recipe.

Recipe number 1173. Submitted 2/10/2004.



Now, I will tell you simple modifications for ingredients you may have on hand. Instead of cottage cheese use warmed cream cheese. Use a healthy oil like olive or canola. When it's not as important to be super low carb use half whole wheat flour and half flax seed meal, or try almond flour rather than whole wheat flour. Toss in a bit of chia seed. Remember both flax seed meal and chia absorb a lot of water and become gelatin-like. You  may need a little extra water--2-4 T.
