Greek Yogurt Oatmeal Pancakes

I have been a bad blogger lately, somehow the time has just escaped me.  How is it already August? I have so many recipes that I have made over the past few weeks that I haven’t gotten around to posting, but I will catch up eventually!

It’s that time again for us dental students, final exams week. Yayyy.  Personally, I’m pretty burnt out from school and I am lacking some serious motivation,  I know I just need to make it through Wednesday.  3 days, 5 exams … not so bad compared to our usual exam schedule.  Let’s just get this over with. I am definitely looking forward to the few days we will have off before starting fall semester. Husband, Diesel, Leo and I are all heading to NJ to visit my parents, one big happy family!

I woke up this morning craving pancakes.  What’s the rush?  Studying can wait.  So I made some AWESOME greek yogurt pancakes.  Oh the things you can do with greek yogurt.   In my last post,  I used greek yogurt in my chicken recipe. It’s such a great cooking ingredient that I never really thought to use before. These pancakes were super easy to throw together and tasted awesome.  Not to mention, they’re healthy! Husband started a new diet recently so I’ve been really making an effort to cook healthier.  I hope you enjoy these as much as we did 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (I used strawberry and blueberry Chobani Greek Yogurt)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions: 

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, yogurt, oil and milk, then add the oats.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.

3. Add flour mixture to oats mixture. Mix with a spatula, just until combined. Batter will be thick.

4. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter per pancake onto a heated griddle and cook over medium heat until puffed and lightly golden on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. I topped mine with some fresh strawberries and a little bit of syrup.  Yummm.

Now that my belly is all full and I have coffee in me, it’s time to start studying, unfortunately I can’t avoid it any longer. Happy Saturday! Hope everyone has a fabulous day.
