With a prep time of about 20 minutes, these deliciously simple pancakes are the perfect start to a lazy Sunday!
- 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
- In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, & baking soda until combined.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the yogurt, egg, and vanilla extract.
- Add the yogurt mixture to the flour mixture. Stir until well-combined.
- 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.
- Once the pan is heated, drop the batter by 1/4 cup onto the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side.
- Serve with toppings and enjoy!
Whole wheat flour: B vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, folate, fiber.
Yogurt: Vitamin D, calcium, potassium, protein.
Egg: Vitamin A, riboflavin, protein, vitamin B12, selenium
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.
