Print this recipe
Just because you're on a low carb diet doesn't mean you can't indulge in some of your favorite carb-ridden treats. The recipe below is a great replacement for your favorite pancake recipe, using fiber- and omega-rich flax seeds and hazelnuts in place of the normal flour.
These pancakes also get a bit of sweetness with sugar-free applesauce and a touch of spice from pumpkin pie spice. Top them with even more applesauce or coconut cream before digging in.
