Instructions
  1. To make the flax meal egg, combine flax meal and water in small bowl until it becomes a yolk-like consistency. Let sit for a few minutes.
  2. Place rolled oats in vitamix or food processor and pulse until it is a flour-like texture. The same can be done with whole almonds if you do not have almond meal.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients including the flax meal egg and blend until it is a smooth consistency like pancake batter. You may need to adjust the recipe by adding more milk to make it thinner or allow the mixture to rest for a few minutes to make it thicker. If you let it sit too long it does thicken and you may need to add more milk to thin it out.
  4. On medium/low heat melt coconut oil in a cast-iron pan or skillet. Once melted, add the pancake batter and allow it to cook for about 2 - 5 minutes or until you see slight browning of the edges.
  5. Flip the pancakes over and cook them for an additional 2 - 5 minutes until it is golden brown. Cooking may vary, make sure the batter is cooked on the inside as well.
  6. Serve warm, topped with pecans and maple syrup if desire and enjoy!
