Apple Flaxseed Pancakes

This is one of my favorite healthy breakfast recipes.  It’s packed with protein, vitamins and fiber.  This is so satisfying after an early morning workout.  Serve this with a couple of tablespoons of natural, unsweetened applesauce and it’s completely guilt free.

Mix the egg and vanilla together in a medium bowl.  Shred the apple and add to the bowl.  If there is a lot of juice you will want to press some out so the mixture isn’t too wet.

Add remaining ingredients and mix to combine.  Heat a skillet on medium heat.  Spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Divide the mixture in half and add each portion to the pan pressing and forming the portions into two pancakes.  Cook for approximately 4-5 minutes until the underside begins to brown.  Carefully flip and cook on the other side for another 4 minutes.  Serve with a couple of tablespoon of all natural, unsweetened apple sauce.
