Serves: 4


  • 1 1⁄3 cups white whole-wheat flour
  • 1⁄4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 6 Tbsp. water
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 1⁄3 cups almond milk


  • Measure flour, sugar, flaxseed, and baking powder into a medium mixing bowl and whisk well to combine.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and stir until incorporated.
  • Heat a nonstick griddle or medium skillet over medium-low to low heat. Once hot, ladle roughly 1⁄3 cup batter onto the hot pan. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake and the bottom is golden brown, roughly 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the pancake and cook 2–3 minutes more, then remove pancake from heat. If pancakes brown too quickly, lower heat to low.
  • Repeat cooking process with remaining batter. Serve pancakes warm.
