Very Berry Fluffy Pancakes

7 Oct

Last night I came down with a late evening migraine which sent me and Ed to bed around 8:00PM.  The sleep aid I took led me into 12 hours of deep slumber and I woke up much better.

Ed and I decided we were going to have a lazy morning before church and all of our normal Sunday activities.  I found this recipe through Elaine’s Page through All Recipes and tweaked it with what I had in my kitchen.

Very Berry Fluffy Pancakes

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
3/4 cup Chobani Blueberry Greek Yogurt (I used 1 8 oz. cup)
1/4 cup skim milk
1/4 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and diced (I used frozen strawberries from my freezer)

First, whisk egg in bowl.  Add yogurt and milk.

Egg, milk, yogurt

Add dry ingredients (flour, sugar, powder, soda, salt) to wet ingredients and stir till combines.  Add strawberries and fold.

Heat skillet on medium high heat and place tablespoons of batter on hot skillet.  Flip after a minute or after golden brown.

Serve with fresh fruit, syrup, powdered sugar or desired toppings.  We ate ours with powdered sugar and maple syrup.

I sided my pancakes up with some hot pumpkin spice coffee with skim milk (I Love our Kuerig!).

I found the pancakes a little difficult to flip with the fresh strawberries, but they came out very tasty.  The Greek yogurt gave the cakes a thicker consistency and much more staying power then the average pancake.  After three fluffy, berry cakes, I won’t be hungry for a while! 🙂

    Your berry pancakes sound like the ideal way to start the day. I love the idea of using greek yogurt in the batter to make a really healthy and filling breakfast, ideal for a lazy Sunday morning. Thanks for sharing

      Thanks for your comments. My worst snacking habits are usually in the morning if I don’t eat a filling breakfast. Greek yogurt is great, but I need to mix it up every so often. Pancakes are the perfect way to do that 😉

      Thanks for visiting! Great blog yourself 🙂
