Greek Yogurt Berry Pancakes- Kids Cook Monday

11

We love Greek Yogurt around here! It’s always in our fridge and while it’s a great breakfast or snack on it’s own, I love when I find a new way to use it. I’ve been trying to find ways to incorporate more protein into our breakfasts lately (and some of us are not in the mood for eggs too early in the morning!) so I decided to try adding Greek Yogurt into a pancake batter. I’ve seen lots of versions of this online, but I like this one the best. It’s sweetened by the yogurt and comes out thick and fluffy.

Greek Yogurt Berry Pancakes

Ingredients

1/2 Cup Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 container Blueberry Greek Yogurt
1 Egg
About a cup of any type of berry

1

The strawberries can go in the batter or as a garnish on top.

(This recipe made about 3-4 pancakes. So, for our family we definitely doubled it!)

2

In one bowl, we mixed the Baking Soda and Flour.

 

3

In another bowl we mixed the egg and yogurt.

 

4

Then, we mixed the two bowls together.

 

5

Brady threw some of the strawberries into the batter for good measure.

 

6

It should be noted that the batter was thick and not pretty. Tasty when cooked, but not pretty.

 

7

We put a little butter on the griddle before spooning the batter on. We flipped them when they began to bubble a little in the middle and the other side was brown.

 

8

A few more strawberries, just because.

9

Not the prettiest, but yummy!

This pancake recipe is not overly sweet, so some recipes I’ve seen call for extra sugar or even a little honey. We left that out of ours because we knew that we’d be adding syrup to the top and they’d be plenty sweet. I was pleasantly surprised by how these came out and I really want to try different versions of it…with vanilla yogurt and bananas, with peach yogurt and peaches. The possibilities are endless!
