1 cup all purpose flour
¼  cup flaxseed meal*
¼ cup finely chopped walnuts
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 ¼ cups reduced-fat (2%) buttermilk
¼ cup pure maple syrup
1 large egg
1 Tbsp (or more) vegetable oil
Additional pure maple syrup

Whisk flour, flaxseed meal, walnuts, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl to blend. Whisk buttermilk, ¼ cup maple syrup, and egg in another medium bowl. Add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients and whisk just until incorporated.
Brush large nonstick skillet lightly with vegetable oil and heat over medium heat. Working in batches, add batter to skillet by scant ¼ cupfuls. Cook until bubbles appear on surface of pancakes and undersides are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Turn pancakes over and cook until golden on bottom, about 2 minutes. Brush skillet lightly with vegetable oil as needed before adding each batch. Transfer pancakes to plates. Serve with additional maple syrup.

*Sold at natural foods stores and some supermarkets. If flaxseed meal isn't available, buy flaxseeds and use a spice grinder or coffee mill to grind them into a fine powder.
