Healthy Pancakes

I adore pancakes. If you're ever in Austin please check out Kerby Lane Cafe- best pancakes in Austin! And queso too but that's an entirely different post. I made this healthy version of pancakes recently- the recipe caught my eye and I had the ingredients on hand. They use whole wheat flour, Greek yogurt, & I added some homemade granola in for an added crunch. Topping with butter and maple syrup probably takes the healthiness down a bit but I like to think it balances out!
Great way to start the day!

Healthy Whole Wheat Granola Pancakes
Adapted from this recipe
  • ¾ cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • ½ cups Rolled Oats (not Instant)
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 6 ounces, weight Fat Free Or 1% plain Greek Yogurt
  • ½ cups Water
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • ½ cup of your favorite granola

To make:
  1. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, oats, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda). Make a hole in the middle of the dry ingredients.
  2. In a large measuring cup or small bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt and water. It should be a very thick but still be of pourable consistency. If more water is needed, add a teaspoonful at a time.
  3. Add yogurt-water mixture, eggs and vanilla to the hole in the dry ingredients. Whisk the wet ingredients together until just combined.
  4. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just mixed. Stir in granola.
  5. Cook the pancakes on a preheated griddle or in a skillet on the stove. When the edges of the batter appear dry and bubbles begin to form and pop, flip the pancake and cook the other side until done.
  6. Serve topped with a tablespoon more granola, butter & maple syrup.
