Greek Yogurt + Honey Pancakes

I just adore breakfast. I don’t get to experiment enough with breakfast recipes as I’m often trying to get a’ goin’ to work in the AM.

I like to try new variations of pancakes, waffles, omelets, etc. whenever I get the chance. And lately one of my favorite snacks is greek yogurt + honey.

That’s putting it mildly really. I am actually COMPLETELY OBSESSED with: string cheese, fresh blueberry muffins, Snapea Crisps, and greek yogurt (with honey). It’s true. I get obsessed with certain snacks or meals, eat it waaaaay too often and then I’m over it for a while.

Food burn out. Live life with passion, that’s what I say.

These pancakes are wonderful. They are a departure from the usual fluffy, soak-up-syrup kind of pancake. These have a creamy, silky texture. Which is delicious but they can be little more difficult to flip then regular pancakes. You have been warned.

Greek Yogurt + Honey Pancakes, makes 4-6 medium/large pancakes

8 tablespoons flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 cup greek yogurt, 1-2 tablespoons honey, 2 eggs and butter or oil for cooking.

Stir together the flour, baking soda and salt. In another bowl stir together the yogurt, honey and eggs. Combine the wet and dry ingredients until just combined. Get ready for pancake time. (Yes, that’s a real step. Take this serious, yo.)

In a medium/large shallow pan heat butter or oil over low/medium heat until it’s hot and melted (oil won’t really melt, so just wait until it hot). Pour a small amount of batter on the hot pan and see how quickly it cooks, this is a ‘test-pancake.’ I find I need this step as I tend to get overly anxious about pancakes and don’t wait long enough for the pan to heat up. You may not need this step. Know thy self. When the heats just right pour about 1/4 cup batter in the pan, wait until a few bubbles form and pancake is set and use a metal spatula to gently and carefully flip the pancake. Continue to cook until done (2-3 minutes or less). Repeat until you have cooked all the batter.

Serve with a bit more honey, butter or maple syrup. In my scientific findings I found that coffee and milk enhanced the enjoyment of these pancakes as well. Do your own research.

These sound, and look amazing! I am truly a breakfast person as well, and I just love having an amazing breakfast before a long day (or before any day for that). Lately I’ve been obsessing over oatmeal with peaches in it! YUM!

Yum! I am the master of the food burn out. I’m glad to know someone else does it too. :)

Awesome blog, I’m trying your pancake recipe next breakfast!

these look incredible! it’s always so hard for me to get motivated to make breakfast… i think it’s hard for me to make a mess in the kitchen that early in the day. (and i’m also a serial food eater, i go on sprees where i’ll incorporate the current ‘addiction’ into everything… my poor boyfriend during the eggplant phase…)

These look amazing. I must try them soon.
Now that the weather is warmer, I’m moving on from my oatmeal and hot tea for breakfast stage to my parfait and hot tea for breakfast phase. I love Greek yogurt with fresh fruit, honey and granola.

It’s also time for my yearly summer salad phase. My favorite is fresh greens with gorgonzola, dried cherries or cranberries, walnuts and balsamic vinaigrette.

Is there any brand of greek yogurt you would recommend or are all pretty much created equal? These look yummy, I must try.

Just made these for Sunday brunch, absolutely delicious—but I made a few fall-type changes as I had extra pumpkin calling my name from the fridge….

-used 3/4 cup Chobani vanilla greek yogurt with 1/4 cup pumpkin puree instead of the full cup of greek yogurt
-added a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg

Hence, Greek Yogurt, Pumpkin, Honey pancakes ^__^
Thanks for the recipe!
