Re: The flaxseeds, it is best to grind yourself, as the nutritional value is max when first ground and then starts decreasing almost immediately.
EatingWell reader Kathy Moseler of Barrington Hills, Illinois, contributed this convenient recipe to our Kitchen to Kitchen department. The pancakes are made with 100 percent whole-wheat flour and get an additional fiber boost from flaxseed meal.

Try substituting applesauce for oil and serving with natural (no sugar) applesauce on top.
These would be even healthier if made with sprouted grain flour -- such as spelt....the sprouted grains digest easier than regular unsprouted whole grains. And as to the readers comment about maple syrup -- REAL maple syrup is actually healthy for you in small amounts and real whipped cream or butter are NOT unhealthy if eaten in small amounts once in a while.
Maple syrup with HFCS and whipped cream: what a horrid way to ruin a powerhouse, healthy meal. Skip that stuff.
But why take healthy and then add both maple syrup & whipped cream to it?!?
