I will never lie and be 'one of those girls' that says she doesn't like pancakes.  I mean, doesn't everyone like pancakes?  Kinda like everyone likes a warm, comfy bed at night?

We usually have pancakes once a weekend, often on Saturday or Sunday when we aren't rushing out the door.  Sometimes we eat them traditionally and sometimes the kids just want a smear of peanut butter on them to eat on the go.

Either way we all enjoy pancake morning.  This past weekend I made this version with Greek yogurt and oatmeal.  Here are some of my other takes {here, hereherehere, here, herehere, and here}.

Yes, my 9th pancake recipe on this here blog.  I knew I liked them, but that much?  Wow.

So, like I said.  These pancakes aren't THAT bad for you.  They contain healthy ingredients like plain Greek yogurt and oatmeal, plus are sweetened just slightly with a little pure maple syrup {I buy mine for a great price at Costco} .

They fluff up like their other unhealthy pancake cousins.  The extras stay good in the fridge for days. And they look pretty in a photo.  Don't ya think?

Basically everything about these beauties works.

Put them into your Saturday pancake rotation, STAT!  I will guarantee your kids will love them.

  3. Nope! You could use equal parts melted butter or canola oil.
