Oatmeal Yogurt Pancakes

Oatmeal Yogurt Pancakes

Simple. Sustainable. Savory.

Wednesdays on Mama Cooks.


I don't like pancakes - if I'm having cake for breakfast it needs to be chocolate, but really I don't want cake for breakfast - and I'm generally growing a little tired of wheat. How much wheat do you eat? Around here it's far too much.

So I came up with this alterna-cake. The teenager and picky husband won't try even one bite, but the third grader has eaten them a number of times. They're good weekday pancakes, she says. Maybe someday she'll eat them on a Saturday, but I'll take my victories in small doses, as needed. As for me, I'll eat these any day of the week.



½  cup plain Greek yogurt
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup old fashioned oatmeal mixed with
¼  teaspoon salt
¼  teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon baking powder


Process everything in a blender until smooth and pour circles into hot, oiled pan. Cook until cooked, obviously.

That's a good one, good weekday pancakes!  Switch the yoghurt for maybe smooth cottage cheese and I would probably eat them.

Cottage cheese definitely works too.
