Three-Ingredient Pancake With Chia Seeds


Did you eat breakfast yet? OK good, I am glad I caught you.

You need to tweak the two-ingredient pancake to include a third ingredient.


Chia Seeds. Known for thickening just about anything they are added to, chia seeds added as our third ingredient thicken our pancake and make it that much better than it already was.


Don’t let the little black dots upset you. You won’t notice them after it cooks a bit.


I hate to say I told you, but I told you so. The chia seeds are now a secret.


You may not be able to tell from the picture but those little chia seeds thicken up the pancake and help create the texture of the dense and chewy pancake experience usually only available when using flour.

In fact, I am going to go as far as saying that these chia seeds combined with the egg (or egg whites) and banana give a traditional pancake a real run for the money and not just in the nutrition department. Hello to protein, omega 3’s, fiber, complex carbs and fruit serving all in one.

If you are still sitting there in fear of a flourless pancake, I really suggest that you try it. I recently read somewhere that the texture and flavor of a traditional two-ingredient pancake is relative to the center of a good hunk of Challah French toast.

Couldn’t agree more.

Slathered with peanut butter, add some blueberries on top plus a side cup of coffee and the Sunday paper and you have yourself a lovely morning. Why does it take 20 pages into the sports section to find the Islanders game recap? Oh right, because they are a New York sports afterthought….

    So cool that you can make pancakes with only 3 ingredients. My recipe doesn’t have many ingredients but it’s more than 3. And easy to make gf too! Bonus

    You didn’t manage to catch me before breakfast, but that’s okay because I’m a pancake for dinner kind of girl anyways 🙂 In fact, I think you may have just provided me with today’s dinner. Wait… scratch that… dinner is at the parents’ tonight. Lunch, then! Even better.

    Ooooh good idea friend! I would love to give these a try! I have had my first breakfast before my run, but these would be a great post run breakfast! Good idea 🙂 My favorite weekend breakfast is definitely pancakes! I am at Penn Relays again all day today, hopefully my athletes run well! Hope you have a great weekend 🙂

      You will definitely love these simple “pancakes” – especially with peanut butter on top! God luck at the relays…P.S. – I am the worst at Twitter. I can only juggle so many social media accounts and Twitter seems to be the one I just never got into. I am trying though! So if you notice I am MIA on there, now you know why! lol

  • Ron-Have you noticed that after the City Council promised that the City Planning Department would conduct outreach regarding recommended changes to land use appeal fees that there has not been a peep? What is the City Planning Department up to? They promised have a real public discussion and they have done nothing.

  • What complete poppycock. BDS is an effective, non-violent method of applying pressure to an intransigent entity that is behaving outside the norms of decency and has not responded to less severe forms of persuasion. It is completely moral to refuse to support a country that insists upon behaving badly. It worked very well in the case of South Africa, and it can work in the case of Israel.

  • Dear Mr Varun R Chunkaar,Can you find any decency in the comments of last paragraph made by Mr Shamnaad Baseer at 12:58 pm ?He thinks that all are having bad relations with agents etc as he has written before.But he himself is saying that he is having very cosy relationship ( we dont know , how far it goes )with some senior people of Patent office. Why the relationship what Shamnaad Baseer is having is good and other's is bad?See the partiality–seems MR Shamnaad Baseer has some personal vendetta and interest!

  • Hi Harriet, Thanks for reading and commenting. The negative thoughts just won’t go away. I had a brief interlude last night, but they’ve intensified again.

Yup, same here: anticipatory anxiety is almost always worst than the event. Thanks again for the kind words!

  • I personally agree on having health insurance policy. It does not have to be necessarily expensive. The agreement can be limited if you speak out what you only wanted your policy to cover or as you mentioned, “drop unnecessary policy provision”.Keeping healthy is still the best solution to avoid having a mountain of debt but as we live on today, it is easier said than done.

  • The earth has a direct reaction to men’s decisions. Adam disobeyed God’s Word resulting in the “ground producing thorns and thistles,” when men’s heart was filled with wickedness the earth was flooded, when Israel failed to give the ground rest they were banished to Babylon, and Proverbs tells us that men’s relationship with their wives causes the earth to tremble. Men are the gate of authority upon the earth.

  • Yes, exactly. Roy. Very few folk in developing countries have access to higher education. We spent the morning with a local family, today, and the daughter is headed to college to train as a primary school teacher, so there is more mobility than some think. But in terms of access to the full global economy, you need wealth and connections even more than you do in the west

Pourtant le maximum que j’ai été sa été 2 dates dans la meme période jamais daté les 10 en meme temps.

  • The marketing “trick” that is most exasperating right now is: Try it free for 30 days or Just pay shipping/handling. What they don’t tell you is that at the end of 30 days you owe the full price of the product – and they don’t tell you the price of the product anywhere in the advertisement.

  • I had been using flax seed oil daily for the last 2 months, and now I have cold like symptoms due to it. I overtaxed my immune system eating that “healthful” oil. So I have a headache, stuffiness and general weakness. I stayed cold free for decades … so it finally clicked as I was eating lunch today that the flax was doing it. Lesson learned on rotating foods better and an oil is tough to digest by nature.Thanks for any comments you may have!

  • Most likely it’s missing it’s mommy or the scent. Do you you get them from a pet store or just out of the paper? any way you could get a small blankie and get some scent from the mommy or siblings?

  • people eat waaaaayy too much meat these days, and I say that as someone who loves it. I rarely eat meat at lunch and don't make it a lot at home – mostly pasta and fish. but the weekends I definitely get my far share – bacons, burgers, pepperoni pizza, etc. I definitely think its a good thing for people to think about their meat consumption and work on eating it less, if necessary.
