These pancakes are fuel for your brain. They give a sneaky, decent clout of vegetarian protein and omega 3 fatty actids, and the blueberries provide a rich source (sauce) of antioxidants that are clinically proven to enhance brain activity.

Chia Pancakes

Mix together:

  •  ¼ cup of quinoa flour
  • ¼ cup of buckwheat flour
  • ½ cup of almond meal
  • ½ cup of chia meal
  • ¼ cup – ½ cup of xylitol to taste
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • optional cinnamon


  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 cup of water (you may need a little more to get the texture you like, but you can add that afterwards)

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry, and stir well.

Lighly grease a pan and heat to low-medium.

Spoon 1-2 Tbspns of mixture into the pan per pancake and fry lightly, flipping once, till each pancake is golden brown on both sides.

Blueberry sauce

  •  ½ cup of blueberries (frozen is fine)
  • ½ cup of water
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • ¼ cup of xylitol or agave to taste
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum

Heat the all ingredients except xanthan gum in a small saucepan on medium heat, and stir until they are all nicely melted together. Add a dash of extra water and the xanthan gum, and continue to stir until you have a thick sauce.

Serve with pancakes…
