Flax Jacks Pancakes (paleo, starch-free, keto, low carb)

10 minutes
Calories 290kcal


  • 1/4 cup flax seed meal (ground golden)
  • 1 eggs (large pastured)
  • 1 tablespoon nut milk (ground golden)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (ground golden)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 dash cinnamon (ground golden)
  • sweetener (optional: a little
  • shortening (add to skillet/pan: a little organic palm


  • Mix ingredients together in a bowl.
  • If your batter is too thick, add a little more liquid.
  • The batter will be sticky, and that is what you want, but it also needs to be wet enough to properly spread out the pancakes.
  • Heat a skillet or fry pan up to medium heat, add cooking fat/oil.
  • For fool proof pancakes make sure you pan/skillet is hot enough before adding any batter.
  • You are shooting for a thoroughly heated pan set at medium heat (or for my stove this is set *just below medium heat*), patience is key for making sure the pan is at the right temp before adding the batter.
  • Spoon the batter onto the cooking surface and form 3 pancakes, using the spoon to gently push the batter around to form your pancakes.
  • Ground flax seed + water acts a bit like glue together, and these pancakes will hold together really well when flipping, so that is a plus! Cook pancakes for about a minute or two per side.
  • Generally once bubbles appear in your pancake batter, they are ready to flip.
  • The key to perfect flaxjacks is making sure they are thoroughly cooked, but not burnt.
  • Burnt flax taste yucky – so try hard not to burn them, while at the same time making sure they are thoroughly cooked.
  • It’s a bit of an art, but you will get the hang of it! I also love making flax waffles, see my recipe for flax waffles.
