Happy New Year + Greek Yogurt Pancakes.

Happy New Year! I can't say I am sad to see 2014 go, but I am healthy and alive so that means 2014 wasn't too bad! Haha. I wanted to start the year off right, with a good, healthy breakfast for us. This is the first new recipe I've made in 2015… Greek Yogurt Pancakes! I love Greek Yogurt and love incorporating it into recipes I use. I use it to marinate chicken (recipe I will share later), top soups in place of sour cream, and in my smoothies. It's healthy for you, as well! Win. Win. Here is the recipe…

adapted from Creme de la Crumb

  • 1½ cups all purpose flour (can use whole wheat flour, too)
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla (or ½ teaspoon almond extract)
  • ¾ cup Greek yogurt (I used plain, nonfat Greek)
  • ¾ cup milk (I used 2% but can use almond milk)
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon 
  • Topping suggestions: syrup, agave, honey, fruit

  • Preheat a pan or griddle over medium heat. Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. In another bowl, mix oil, eggs, vanilla, milk, and greek yogurt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir. Do not over mix, there should still be a few lumps. Grease griddle/pan and pour ⅓ cup batter onto the griddle. Allow to cook 3-4 mins or until tops of pancakes begin to bubble. Using a spatula, flip pancakes over and allow to cook for another couple of minutes. Transfer to a cookie sheet and put into a 250 degree oven to keep warm. Continue with remaining batter. Top pancakes with desired toppings!
