You can replace oil with ground flax seeds in most baking, using three Tbs. flax in place of one Tbs. oil.

This works marvelously well in pancakes.

If you top wholewheat-flax pancakes with homemade fig-blueberry compote and Noosa honey yoghurt, it is sublimely delicious.

If you sleep in and then make wholewheat-flax pancakes and fig-blueberry compote on a Sunday morning, you will be late for church.

You will not be sorry.

The end.

P.S. a little recipe for you!

-slice 8 fresh figs in quarters
-put those and a couple handfuls of blueberries in a small pot
-splash on enough white grape juice to cover half the fruit
-bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until your pancakes are ready and liquid is almost syrupy, (about 15 minutes)
-eat with yoghurt (or ice cream or straight out of the pot)
