Greek Yoghurt Pancakes

Nothing is better for a weekend brunch than a stack of warm, fluffy pancakes.

Whilst normal pancakes aren’t actually that hard to fit your macros (basic batter is just 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk, 1 egg), they are lacking in protein, and not everyone wants to chug a protein shake on the side of their pancakes to boost it up!

Alternatively you could add whey to the batter itself. Unfortunately when you add whey protein it changes the texture of the food when it’s cooked, making it a little more rubbery and less fluffy, which isn’t to everyone’s taste. So this recipe gets a protein boost from 0% fat Greek yoghurt.

I’d be lying if I said these were mine… my ones were far less aesthetically pleasing. Until I get better with my presentation skills, this stock photo will have to do!

Ingredients
1/2 cup/65g plain flour
1/2 cup/40g oats
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp Truvia/sweetener of choice (optional)
200g 0% fat Greek yoghurt (I used Total)
150ml Alpro Almond/Alpro Coconut Milk OR you could use cow’s milk, whatever fits your diet better.
2 whole eggs (could drop fat down further by using 3 egg whites instead)
1 tsp plain tasting oil like rapeseed or vegetable oil
1 tsp/5g butter
Your choice of toppings: I used frozen cherries that had been microwaved into a compote and some Protein Works Zero Calorie Chocolate Fudge Syrup.

Recipe

  1. Add all of the ingredients apart from the butter and toppings into a blender and whizz until smooth. The batter should be a little thicker
  2. Heat up a non stick pan on a medium heat and add the butter.
  3. Once the butter melts, add 1 heaped tbsp of the mixture, shape into as close to a round shape as you can, cook for 30s until the top bubbles and then flip. Cook for a further 30s and repeat for all your other pancakes.
  4. Top with your favourite toppings! Here are some ideas:
  • 2 rashers streaky bacon + Protein Works Zero Calorie Maple Syrup
  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice + Sugar/Splenda/Truvia
  • Melted chocolate + Extra Light squirty cream
  • Frozen fruit microwaved into a compote
