Fluffy Lemon Chia Seed Pancake Recipe Ingredients:

23 cup           millet or sorghum flour 
13 cup           tapioca starch  
12 tsp            baking soda   
14 tsp            fine sea salt      
2 tbsp            fine crystal cane sugar 
112 tbsp        chia seeds   
4                     large eggs   
1 cup              cottage cheese 
12 cup           milk   
2 tbsp            melted virgin coconut oil or unsalted butter
1 tbsp            finely grated lemon zest                                  
                       Nonstick cooking spray


1.  In a large bowl, whisk together millet flour, tapioca starch, baking soda and salt.

2.  In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, chia seeds, eggs, cottage cheese, milk, coconut oil and lemon zest until blended.

3.  Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just blended.

4. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. For each pancake, pour about 14 cup (60 mL) batter onto griddle. Cook until bubbles appear on top. Turn pancake over and cook for about 1 minute or until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining batter, spraying griddle and adjusting heat as necessary between batches.


You can use 112 tsp (7 mL) lemon extract in place of the lemon zest.
An equal amount of poppy seeds can be used in place of the chia seeds.
