Greek Yogurt Pancakes

I wanted to change up my pancake recipe yesterday morning. Don't get me wrong, the recipe I use, we love, but I had some greek yogurt that needed to be used up and I was low on milk, so I invented these. They came out thick, fluffy and delicious! I strongly recommend adding yogurt to your pancake batter anytime, it just makes them all that more mouth watering.

Greek Yogurt Pancakes
1 egg
1 c. skim milk
3/4 c. greek yogurt
1 t. vanilla
1 t. salt
1 T. sugar
1 1/2 t. baking soda
1 1/2 t. baking powder
2 1/2 c. flour

Mix all wet ingredients together, and then combine with the sifted dry ingredients. It will be a pretty thick batter. Cook on hot griddle a few minutes a side, turning when bubbles start to pop and color is golden brown. Serve with butter, syrup, jam, fruit....whatever tickles your fancy!

Little man and I are headed to my parents today for a visit and then I'll be meeting up with some girlfriends later tonight. Grandma will be babysitting! So, I'll be back in the blog world on Wednesday. That reminds me, speaking of girlfriends. I just started reading The Girls From Ames last night. Has anyone else read? I can already tell it is going to be a good book. It makes me think of my life, as I treasure my girlfriends!

  6. I made pancakes with yogurt in them, for the first time this weekend! They were fabulous. I didn't use greek yogurt though...I bet it'd make them even better. :)

  9. Ohhh I love to add yogurt to ANYTHING. I love thin pancakes though. Guess I could add a bit extra milk though. Have you made yogurt cheese? I plan on posting it next week. SO good and easy.

    Sorry it took so long to get over here, I got sick! I never do and then I was asleep for 20 hours, my fat butt was sore from so long in bed. Ouch.

    Thanks for coming back and linking up I really appreciate it, seriously I do. You inspire me to go on. Thanks!
