B: Flax pancakes, raspberries & blueberries & lf cream
L: 3 chicken drumsticks & salad. Peanuts
D: Sausage, Mashed swede, broccoli, & sprouts. Low carb raspberry crumble & lf cream
Tried these pancakes ( they look like griddle scones/scotch pancakes) for the first time this morning and they are delicious, needless to say I will be having them again. I think I will be able to make a largish batch of these and store them in a tin. This way I can just take a few out at a time and re-heat for a few seconds in the microwave, alternatively I could eat them cold. Also because they are unsweetened I can use them for sweet or savoury toppings. I'm thinking of trying them as a substitute for the oatcakes which I know have carbs in them. I will then have something to make a quick lunch with on busy days.
Flax Pancakes1/2 cup flax meal (ground flaxseed)
3 tbsp thick cream (lactofree cream)
3 tbsp milk (or watered down lf cream)
dash of cinnamon (optional)
1/4 tsp baking powder
a little butter or oil
Place dry ingredients into a bowl. Add the eggs & beat. Add cream & milk. Beat/whisk again. If too thick add a little water, if too thin add a little flax.
Heat griddle or heavy frying pan. Add a little butter. Place a small ladle of mixture into the pan and let it cook for a few minutes, turn over and cook the other side..
This morning I have had 6 pancakes and there is still some mixture left so should do two servings.
2 servings of 2-3 pancakes = 4.5g carbs
I am going to experiment by adding different flavours. ie. coconut for dessert pancakes or oregano for savoury.
