Pancakes have been a struggle in our house for one reason, protein! I need my pancakes to contain protein and yet my family LOATHES the taste of any of the available protein pancakes mixes out there. I have tried them all, or at least it feels that way, and every time I try to sneak these mixes in and serve them to my family I get caught.
So, I realized that I had to come up with something that would allow me to have the protein I need while also having a recipe that did not taste like all those pre-made mixes out there.
Greek yogurt was the answer for me, it adds enough tang to the pancakes to give them a buttermilk like flavor and allows me to get each serving of pancakes up to 17g.
Please note that this recipe does contain more carbs than the pre-made mixes.
Greek Yogurt Pancakes
4 servings, 46C, 6F, 17P
2 cups Heart Smart bisquick mix
½ cups lowfat milk
11 ounces Fage total 0%
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a large bowl measure out the pancake mix, make a well in the center of the mix.
In a separate bowl combine all your wet ingredients; yogurt, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Mix to combine.
Once all the wet ingredients have been mixed, pour them into the center well of the pancake mix. Stir to combine, but do not over mix. The result is going to be a very thick batter, resist the urge to add any extra milk!
Heat your griddle or cooking surface to medium high heat.
Cook your pancakes until golden brown!
If you need a little extra protein in your meals, you can add in 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder and up the milk from ½ cup to ¾ cup. This will change the macros to 47C, 7F, 23P.
