Omit the Bonito Flakes as well. For dairy and/or meat sensitive stomachs: forgo the shredded mozzarella and substitute with ¼-½ cup of mashed sweet potato and/or 1 egg (this will require more mixing as these are wet ingredients), and instead of meat toppings, try finishing off the pancake with vegetarian Kimchi and microgreens.
