Ground pecans replace wheat flour in this old favorite you likely had many times growing up. For Italian flavor, add 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1 teaspoon dried basil, and 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese to the flaxseed mixture and serve with tomato sauce.

  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
  • Total Time: 25 Minutes


  • 2 tablespoons ground golden flaxseeds
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free soy sauce ½ cup ground pecans
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops, ¾” thick
  • 2 tablespoons olive or coconut oil
How to Make It
  1. On a plate, combine the flaxseeds, salt, and paprika. In a wide shallow bowl, whisk the egg and soy sauce. Place the pecans on a plate.
  2. Dip each chop into the flax mixture, then in the egg mixture, and then into the pecans to coat.
  3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Cook the pork chops for 8 minutes, turning once, or until a thermometer inserted sideways in a chop registers 160°F and the juices run clear.
