Here is something my oldest and I have been working on. They are deeee-licious.

Wheat and flax pancakes

1 1/4 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup white flour
1/4 cup bran (oat or wheat)
1/4 cup ground flax
1.5 Tbsps sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups of rice milk
1 egg replacer prepared
3 tbsp veg oil
2 tbsp apple sauce
1-2 tbsp water if needed (Sometimes the batter is too thick, it might be just a variance in the flour, I am not sure.)

Mix all dry ingredients (wheat flour through sugar) in a large bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the wet ingredients. Mix until just mixed through. Do not overmix. Let the batter sit for a few minutes before cooking. Cook on medium heat 2-3 minutes a side. They don't get too bubbly on top. They do sort of look a little puffy when they are ready to be turned. Keep them warm on a cookie sheet in a 200 degree oven. This recipe makes about 14 pancakes if you use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to measure them out.

I have tried these without the egg replacer as there is flax and apple sauce in them. But, they just seemed better with it. So, I keep it.

In France we don't use very much flax seeds, nearly only in the bread, to improve nutritional qualities. Do you use ground flax seeds to get a texture or a taste ?
