Nutty Low Carb Flax Pancakes

These are deeeeelicious!!! I totally fell in love the first bite. I got the recipe from a low carb forum called Low Carb Friends from a lady in Texas named Nancy. Thank you Nancy for sharing your recipe. I did tweak this recipe just a little bit for my liking. I added walnuts, a pinch of salt, and a little more cream. I will totally be making these again and again. Next time I think I will add some cinnamon. YUM!!!!

1/4 Cup protein powder -- vanilla or plain

1/8 Cup flax seeds -- ground to 1/4 cup flax meal

3 eggs

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 Cup heavy cream (I did about 1/2 cup)

1/4 Cup water (approximate)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 Pinch sweetener

1 pinch of salt (my addition)

1/4 cup chop walnuts (my addition)

Mix ingredients and cook in melted butter on a griddle just as you would regular pancakes.

Carbs per serving - include all nutritional information if known: approximately 8 to 10g carbs total, approximately 2 carbs per 3 inch pancake, approximate 6 pancakes per mix.
