Chia seeds are championed as a superfood and provide an abundance of healthy omega-3 fatty acids (even more then flax seeds).

They help bolster the immune system and will give you the energy boost you need to start your day. Along with supplying protein, fiber, B vitamins and antioxidants, whole wheat has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease and improve bowel health.

Studies consistently show that women who regularly consume whole wheat flour tend to weigh less than those who consume the same amount of white flour.

The old fashioned oats in this pancake recipe will give you an added dose of soluble fiber and avenanthramides, an antioxidant compound unique to oats that helps prevent free radicals from damaging LDL cholesterol.

  1. just made these for breakfast. my kids don’t like to know there’s anything “unusual” in their pancakes.. I was a little concerned they won’t eat them because they’d see the black chia seeds or big chunks of oatmeal… BUT they couldn’t even tell any of that stuff was in there… the mixture blends really nicely (I used my vitamix) and the pancakes came out delicious & very filling. I substituted the honey with 1tbs of maple syrup (because I didn’t have any honey).
    I topped mine with raspberry preserves & homemade almond butter.
    The kids topped theirs with maple syrup.

    Thanks for this recipe! Will definitely make it again.

    1. 5 stars
      Made these with a few modifications. Used half milk and half yogurt, veg oil instead of coconut, 1 tsp cinnamon instead of pumpkin pie spice, and replaced honey with coconut sugar. Also added some orange zest which was quite nice. And seems silly but I didn’t use the blender at all. My husband loved the texture and that they weren’t overly sweet. Felt good about feeding these to my kids! Thank you

      1. Love it! Thanks for sharing all your modifications! You don’t need a blender for pancakes of course (people made them for years and years before a blender was invented! haha) and sometimes it can overblend but I love it for how easy it is to pour into the pan and make less of a mess 😉 I’ll have to try some orange zest next time! I also use monkfruit sweetener now for a zero glycemic index sweetener. Enjoy! ~Tarashaun
