Recipe of the week. v1.

Greek Yogurt Pancakes

Now I know what your thinking.. But hear me out! 

I stumbled across this recipe one morning when looking for a pancake recipe with a twist.. What I came across is my new staple, weekend morning, feel good meal! 

What I love about this recipe, is that you could make it your own by mixing it up and adding your own personal touch. 

The basic recipe goes:

¾ C Greek Yogurt - I use no fat but you can use full fat if you like. 

1 egg - Can be substituted with a Chia Egg 

½ C Flour - I used wholemeal, however use whichever flour you want! I have tested coconut flour with was a bit of failure as the coconut flour is so absorbent it took too much of the moisture out of the mixture. 

1 Tsp Bi Carb Soda

Mix the Greek Yogurt and the egg together, then mix through the flour, add in the bi card soda last and watch your mixture grow into a fluffy batter. 

The twist I added here was 1 Tsp of All Spice. 

Other variations you could try would be cinnamon, pumpkin spice, pure cocoa, citrus zest.. The list is endless! 

Once you mix the batter together the bi carb soda should start to fluff the mixture up creating small bubbles. 

I ate mine with a simple raspberry puree.. 

These are definitely a guilt free weekend treat! They are so nice and light and fluffy and can be enjoyed in so many ways. 


Let me know what you think and if you try any other variations I’d love to hear about it!
