|A warm, mild October in Chicago|
When I started this post it was warm, but it's been in drafts for at least a couple of months. Shame on me.
I always seem to find time for Pinterest, which is loaded with great recipes and more; and I came across a great recipe for Greek yogurt pancakes.

I found another recipe that inspired me. Like many others, I like to study other recipes and come up with my own. Here's the recipe for Fluffy Greek Yogurt Pancakes from Eating Made Easy:
MY GREEK YOGURT PANCAKES RECIPE:
|Joanne's Greek Yogurt Pancakes|
I made half the amount of the original recipe I came across. My recipe yields about 6 fluffy pancakes, and that's usually enough for my needs. I love using pastry flour, as it is so light and airy. I get organic pastry flour in bulk from Whole Foods. When I first made these pancakes I used coconut palm sugar. Now I use Stevia. It's natural and plenty sweet.
Like many others, I mix the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients separately.
|Aldi's Almond Milk|
from Smith Family Resources
3/4 cup organic pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1-2 packets Stevia in the Raw (or 1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar)
Pinch of salt (I like to use sea salt from a grinder)
Dash of Cinnamon (to taste)
1 egg (beaten)
3/8 cup Low Fat Vanilla Greek yogurt (6 tablespoons or 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons)
3/8 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tablespoon oil (coconut oil or grapeseed oil is great).
After mixing the dry ingredients in one bowl, and the wet ingredients in another, I slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ones, a little at a time. Once everything has been combined, the batter should sit for at least 5 minutes. This is a good time to prepare vegetarian bacon or sausage. :) Also the griddle should be hot. I discovered these pancakes cook rather quickly as long as the griddle is ready. Use medium heat and watch the pancakes closely. Mine didn't really bubble like traditional pancakes, so the first one got browner than I preferred. But I quickly got the hang of it, and flipped the pancakes within a couple of minutes. The rest of the pancakes were perfect.
|The 1st pancake cooked faster than I expected, and was almost burned, but it was still delicious.|
|I went back for the last pancake. So good...|
If you have a pancake recipe, or try this one, I'd love to hear from you.
Thanks for stopping by.
