Whole Wheat Yogurt Pancakes

26 Aug

I forgot what it feels like to be a woman again..cravings this week are OUT OF CONTROL! There’s quite a possibility that if you put anything edible in front of me, I’d devour it. All of it.

I’m going with the flow it this is what it takes 🙂

Going along with the cravings, I’ve been longing for pancakes. Not the Bisquick kind (though nothing is wrong with them), but homemade ones. Either with oats or whole wheat flour, I’ve been experimenting and I think I’ve nailed it.

I wouldn’t say this recipe delivers fluffy, moist pancakes, but rather, hearty and oaty-textured ones with an earthy flavor that leaves you feeling full and not fully weighted down.

Another plus, it’s a single serving recipe! One large pancake or 2-3 smaller ones. Great for people who are greedy, like myself, and don’t want to share the wealth or have leftovers.

In the mix:

  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Whisk together.

  • 1/4 cup low fat plain Greek yogurt (you could try a flavored yogurt if you’re adventurous)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg white

Stir to combine. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Pour into a sprayed pan over medium heat. Cook until little bubbles form on the top, then flip and cook until the middle isn’t runny.

A peanut butter fiend, I topped my pancake with freshly ground honey roasted peanut butter and served strawberry jelly (because I didn’t have any syrup) on the side. A cut-up apple (core included) rounded out the breakfast!

This recipe worked for me; it was more grainy than fluffy, but that’s what I expect when it’s a healthier-style pancake..no? I think I spent this past week searching for an easy, minimal ingredients (ingredients that a non-health nut normal person would have on hand), and little assembly required recipe for a whole wheat pancake. Many of the recipes I found didn’t fit the bill (not to say they didn’t sound AMAZING, but I didn’t 1) have the ingredients, 2) have the time/patience, or 3) have an army to feed) so I took ingredients from all of the recipes I found and made my own.

    I posted a recipe–if you can call it that–for 2-ingredient pancakes just the other day. It was surprisingly tasty–and healthy! Egg and banana. Just an idea!

    I love that you eat the core of an apple. I do too! 🙂

      That sounds so easy! I’ll have to try it, I have some bananas I need to eat 🙂 I’m SO glad to find another core eater like myself! Not too many of our kind around 🙂

        I didn’t know you COULD eat the core! Aren’t apple seeds supposed to be bad for you?

    Hi! My name is Sue, and I’m from SlimKicker, a diet/fitness app and site. I came across your blog a few days ago and it captured my interest!

    I’m contacting you b/c we’re about to release a fitness tracker (similar to FitBit) early next year, and are looking for bloggers who would be interested in getting 1 for free to review when it is out (negative or positive).

    Would you be interested in doing this? You can email me at: sue (at) slimkicker (com) with ‘Review’ in the email heading if you are.

    Just to let you know, our site SlimKicker basically turns your diet/fitness goals into a level up game. The tracker will work with the website, and allow people to track calories burned and number of steps they walk automatically. The more they exercise, the more points they rack up! That’s basically how it will work.

    Anyway, hope to hear back either way…

    – Sue
