As well as being nutritious these pancakes are really tasty. Flax seeds give them added fiber, something we can all use. I am going to substitute the 3 eggs with either 1 1/2 banana or 3/4 cup apple sauce. Also I will substitute the protein powder with soy milk powder and instead of using heavy cream, I will use coconut creamer. Also for my sugar substitute I will use Xylitol. I am also going to cook these in my waffle maker instead of frying them.
