Fluffy and packed with a little protein punch
So I’m going to be on a bit of a blueberry kick for the next few weeks so just brace yourself! These pancakes are a nice comfort food but the added protein and fat from the greek yogurt, plus the fiber from some whole wheat flour helps to not sky-rocket your blood sugar. Paired these with my cup of morning joe and I was as happy as can be.
- 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
- 1/2 c. all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1 c. plain greek yogurt (I use 2% FAGE)
- 1 T. honey
- 1 T. vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
Mix dry ingredients, mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl and whisk until smooth.
Stir wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Fold in the blueberries. Grease a griddle or or skillet stove top over medium heat (I do 350 on my electric griddle). Drop batter and spread out a little if needed (batter is thick but we want it to cook through). Once bubbles start to come through the pancake it is ready to flip. Be patient.
Once completely cooked enjoy with a little pure maple syrup.
I love these pancakes! I hope you do too ♥
