Lentil Flax Seed Pancakes w/ Sunflower Seed Mocha Butter

One thing that Gluten Free/Dairy Free/Sugar Free Dieters miss is pancakes
drizzled with butter and syrup..............

...............Not any more though!

I'm starting a strict anti-inflammatory diet for a week or two to help with some joint pains.
Two wonderful foods on the plan are Lentils and Flax Seed.
But if the healthy food doesn't taste really good, are you really going to keep eating it?
These pancakes were really simple and REALLY Good! 
It always helps to stay on track when your food is delicious.............
This recipe starts off with some ground flax seed for healthy digestion and folic acid. 
I try to eat 3 Tbs. of ground flax each day. 
Be sure to grind it fresh and/ or store it in the freezer for optimal nutrition.
Here's the super simple recipe:

Lentil & Flax Seed Pancakes
Mix the dry ingredients, then mix in the water & vanilla
and let sit for a few minutes. 
Add water if its  too thick.
The batter will be more thin than gloppy.

Drop spoonfuls onto a greased heated fry pan.
Fry up each side for about 3 minutes.

1 - 1 1/4 Cups Filtered Water
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

3 Tbs. Ground Flax Seed
3/4 Cup Lentil Flour (grind Lentils into a powder  -  that's it)
1/2 tsp. Powdered Stevia *or 2 Tbs. of honey
1 tsp. Baking Powder

* leave out the sweetener and the vanilla and they are like cornbread to go alongside of a meal.

Serve these with any healthy syrup, fruit puree or a nut butter.
I did these with my
Sunflower Seed Cocoa Butter 
Berries, fruit purees or jams would also go well with these.

Gluten Free, Sugar Free & Dairy Free
Lentil Flour and Flax Seed are very Healthy Fun Food!

  1. Where can I find a diet like this for my joint pain????

    1. Hi there, I've just added a tab near the top of the blog for anti-inflammatory diet guidelines if you'd like to start there. Also, there's a tab on eating non-dairy that was the first food change that I used to effect my joint pain. The Internet is full of information on this type of dietary pain relief. If you have other questions, I'd be more than happy to send you in the right directions for more information! Thanks!
