greek yogurt pancakes
I had ever intention of making Blueberry Buckle Muffins this morning to share with y’all. I had the muffin tin all ready to go. Then, Ruthie fell in the sink. Yes, quite literally. Hank got soaked outside from the rain, therefore getting water and mud all over my floor. Not only that but every other step I was crushing more blueberries on the floor. It was my own fault because I gave each kid a pint of blueberries to eat out of. You can only imagine the mess. So, that left me looking for something a little less involved. So here we are. Greek Yogurt Pancakes.
We love pancakes in this household! There are many mornings that we eat pancakes, so I am always looking for different variations of them. I came across greek yogurt pancakes and have tried my fair share of them. I think I have FINALLY come up with a good protein packed pancake with greek yogurt that actually tastes good and has a light and fluffy texture, like a pancake should. These do fluff up quite a bit and spread out on the pan, so start a little on the small side when pouring your batter. If you don’t, you will end up with them all running together, creating one giant pancake. This recipe was adapted from Julia’s Album. As shared on Frugally Sustainable.
- 2/3 cup flour
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup milk
Combine your flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar. Then in a separate bowl combine your eggs, greek yogurt*, and milk. Add the flour mixture and the milk mixture together. Stir to combine.
Butter a skillet preheated to medium and cook up your pancakes. They should take about 2 minutes on each side. Serve hot of the griddle. Enjoy.
*A little dish saving trick. I pour my 1/4 cup milk into a liquid measuring cup. Then I add my 3/4 cup of greek yogurt in with the milk until the liquids measure 1 cup. (1/4 milk + 3/4 greek yogurt =1 cup liquid... just to make that crystal clear) Then I just mix in my eggs on top of that. Saves me a few dishes. I am always looking for short cuts and time savers. Hope that helps!
