Chia Seed Pancakes with Strawberries

By June 12, 2021No Comments
Who doesn’t like a delicious stack of pancakes for breakfast, and these certainly won’t disappoint. Spelt flour is a great choice here, but if you don’t have any, you can also use plain white flour. For a gluten free version use buckwheat flour.
Chia seeds are little nutritious powerhouses loaded with antioxidants and delivering a massive amount of nutrients with very few calories.
Tip: Sifting the flour into the bowl makes all the difference when it comes to creating light and fluffy pancakes.
