About this recipe: Delicious and healthy pancakes made with wholemeal flour, oats and flaxseed. An easy way to boost whole grains in your diet. I love these topped with berries and yoghurt.

I am trying to eat healthier and these turned out great. They are very filling but nice with some fruit for breakfast. - 19 Nov 2013
