Rated 5 out of 5 by Joyce01 from Healthy alternative to "regular" pancakes & good! I made these for breakfast today & they were a hit. My family likes pancakes, however, the empty calories are hard for me to justify for our important first meal of the day, so I rarely make them unless I can see some protein benefit (& in this case omega's). Thus, my trial today with this Vitamix recipe that incorporates flax meal, ww flour, almond milk & sunflower seeds. Yay! A healthy alternative. The fruit syrup (recipe also in the Vita book) is fantastic on them. I used 1/2 sugar (vs the 1/2-1 cup suggestion) with fresh strawberries. Yum. What a great way to get some healthy food into your family @ breakfast. The batter is thicker & the consistency of the pancake is softer (inside). Thank-you Vitamix!

How do I make these without any eggs?
You could substitute 2 tablespoons of applesauce to replace the egg. The egg helps to thicken the batter.
