Old Fashioned Pancakes…

American Favorites
…with Greek yogurt!

So, these are Greek-American since I have added Greek yogurt, right? Well, I think so at least 🙂

This is my go to recipe for quick, delicious pancakes. I always love topping my cakes with sliced bananas and cinnamon, and I usually opt for a honey drizzle instead of sugar loaded syrup, that is unless I find 100% natural syrup (but here on the island it costs about $15-18 for a very small bottle)!

Old Fashioned Wheat Pancakes:  Makes about 5-6 big pancakes (enough for 4, perfect for 3 or even a greedy two!)
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup AP flour
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 T. raw sugar
1 1/2 cups milk yogurt (1/4 – 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, then fill remaining with milk)
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 T. EVOO or butter*

*I use extra virgin olive oil for just about everything, even in baking recipes, but you can always sub a different oil or even butter.

Whisk the egg and sugar together until blended, slowly add milk/yogurt while continuing to whisk. Sift all the dry ingredients over the batter mix and stir until just moist, but be sure there are no flour pockets! Heat griddle to MH and brush oil or butter before each pour to ensure excellent cooking. I use my cup measure to pour batter to pan, probably using about 1/2 cup each time.

Top pancakes with your favorite toppings and enjoy to your health, kali orexi to each of you!
