Help! My sister's family loves when I make them Isa's puffy pillow pancakes http://www.theppk.com/2011/12/puffy-pillow-pancakes/ but now that she's pregnant again, she's worried about eating flax seed.

Has anyone tried to make pancakes, muffins etc without the flax? What happens? Is there an easy substitute?

OR if not...does anyone have a pancake recipe they love without the flax seed?

Thanks!!

We make this recipe on weekends using EnerGEgg, which doesn't contain flax:

I think some people on the PPK don't like Ener-G-Egg, but my family has no problem with it.
We also use a secret ingredient - seltzer. We replace half of the milk with plain carbonated water to give it extra fluff. I actually learned that trick in 8th grade home ec class lol!

What's the issue with flax seed and pregnancy? Seems like a good thing to eat while pregnant.

I just hate dealing with flaxseed so never use it for anything. Our pancake recipe is:
1 cup flour
2T sugar or more to taste
1 tsp baking powder plus 1 tsp baking enerG, but if you are out of enerG it seems to work to just use two teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 T melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup milk

Multiply as desired. The above makes about one adult plus one toddler serving in our house.

We sub chia for flax all the time. Same proportions- 1T chia to 3T water for 1 chia egg.

+1 yummy for wondering what the issue is with flax!

yes i am confused too!

the only thing i ever read a pregnant vegan should avoid was sprouts.

seems like flax would be a healthy fat and a good source of omega 3s

I've made Isa's buckwheat pancakes from VB subbing egg replacer for the flax and they turned out great.

I get the fluffiest pancakes with yogurt. You can use fruit yogurts if you want, but I usually use plain or vanilla. Also, how much sugar you need in the pancake itself depends on how sweet your yogurt is, whether you use sweetened or unsweetened milk, and whether you like them to be sweet on their own, or rely on syrup.

1 c white whole wheat flour (You could use white, but I try to make them healthy for my kiddos)
1-2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
pinch salt
6 oz yogurt (I have used soy and coconut, but not almond. I am sure it would be fine, but I just haven't used it.)
1/2-3/4 cups milk of your choice
1 T oil

Mix the dry ingredients. Whisk the wet ingredients until all combined and then pour over the dry and fold in. Cook like you would any other pancake. This is a thick batter though, so expect the cooking time to be on the long side.
