Top Tip: Both seeds are prone to going rancid fairly quickly, so make sure to store them whole and in a dry, dark place.
Our pancakes are made with two tiny, unassuming, little nutrient bombs - hemp seeds and flax seeds (also known as linseeds).
Hemp seeds are absolutely packed full of all sorts of goodness - omegas 3 and 6, alpha and gamma linolenic acid (which are reputedly extremely good for heart health). Minerals a plenty in the form of phosphorous, potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, manganese and copper. Not to mention the vitamins! Hemp is particularly high in Vitamin E but also provides a good dose of A and D as well as smaller quantities of C, B6, thiamin, riboflavin and niacin! Providing the most complete form of protein available from a plant source, along with fibre and arginine, you really can't beat hemp seeds for nutritional punch!
Flax seeds are no inferior being either - chock full of omega 3 fatty acids and a wealth of vitamins and minerals with many reputed health benefits, all of which are much more bio-available when ground so this gluten free pancake recipe suits them perfectly.
These pancakes are great served with either sweet or savoury accompaniments.
