Quick & Easy Sunday Morning Pancakes

pancakes

With a prep time of about 20 minutes, these deliciously simple pancakes are the perfect start to a lazy Sunday!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 4 oz (1/2 cup) plain yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, & baking soda until combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the yogurt, egg, and vanilla extract.
  3. Add the yogurt mixture to the flour mixture. Stir until well-combined.
  4. Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Grease with cooking spray or 1-2 teaspoons of butter or oil. To know when the pan is hot enough, flick water onto it. If the water sizzles, the pan is good to go.
  5. Once the pan is heated, drop the batter by 1/4 cup onto the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  6. Serve with toppings and enjoy!

Nutritional benefits: 

Whole wheat flour: B vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, folate, fiber.

Yogurt: Vitamin D, calcium, potassium, protein.

Egg: Vitamin A, riboflavin, protein, vitamin B12, selenium

Notes:

The sugar can be replaced with other sweeteners, such as maple syrup or honey. Additionally, if a sweetened yogurt is used, the sugar can be omitted.

Greek yogurt does not work well with these pancakes. A yogurt with a more liquid consistency works best. I like Stonyefield Smooth & Creamy yogurt, though brands such as Dannon and Yoplait also work well. The Greek yogurt lends too much thickness to the batter, making it really difficult to work with.
