Greek Yogurt Banana Pancakes


During the weekends my family likes to sit down and eat all our meals together at the table.  Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.  This is special family time for us, as my husband works long hours at his finance job and does not always get home in time to eat dinner with my son and I.

During these meals, I like to make them hot.  More than just sandwiches for lunch and more than just cold cereal for breakfast.  It turns out that my son LOVES pancakes.  I never knew what was so special about banana pancakes, but now I make them often because bananas are sweet and then you don’t have to add any sugar to your pancakes.

I never really purchased many bananas until I had my son.  Now we eat them all the time.  I can always count on bananas when he is being finicky about eating other food items.  ( Sweet Potatoes are my other ” go to” food)

This weekend, I decided to switch up the recipe a bit.  I made Greek Yogurt banana pancakes.  What a great way to add some extra nutrition to our meal!  Remember? I am a sneaky mom!  

Greek Yogurt Banana Pancakes – With no Sugar and no eggs  ( why no eggs?  I didn’t have any!)

Ingredients 

2 cups of flour

2 teaspoons of baking powder

1 1/2 cups of Greek Yogurt

1 1/4 cups of  milk

2 tablespoons of melted butter

2 bananas.  Mashed.

 Mix all the ingredients together in a food processor.  and make the pancakes over a griddle on the stove.  

these pancakes were sooo fluffy!!  and sweet!  I love making meals for my family that are healthy AND tasty!  I think I might brainstorm the use of bananas for different recipes.


My son and husband scarfed down these pancakes.  I did too!  I love feeling full and satisfied after a meal, but not so full that you feel gross.

  1. These sound good. Spread on a little peanut butter – yum! We’re having a party at Tumbleweed Contessa featuring brunch. This would be perfect. Hope you can bring them over. http://www.tumbleweedcontessa.com/blog/brunch-saturday-dishes-2/

  2. LOVE THIS! I have attempted to create my own yogurt pancakes before…they were greatbut didn’t look as pretty as yours! definitely making these!!! I am hosting a blog hop today at http://www.frugalfitfamily.com – stop by if you can!

     
  3. Also – I would love to make these and use you as an inspiration and put them on my website (and of course link back to you)…I would be making them with blueberry’s cause that’s what I have! Let me know if that is okay with you!

  6. How many does this make?? They look delicious!

     
  7. Thank you so much for this recipe! Every other Greek yogurt pancake recipe I found wanted pancake mix, but I didn’t want all the starch, and I prefer to make my son’s meals 100% from scratch so I know what’s in them. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m sure they’ll be delicious! I already make him pancakes with banana and egg, which are a huge hit, so I’m sure these will be great.

     
  8. I made these and they would not cook through. i cooked them awhile. Any ideas on what i did wrong? What griddle temp do you put yours on?

     
    • I wish I could tell you. I made these almost three years ago. All I can say, is that I usually cook my pancakes on medium heat. as not to burn them too quickly, but to also to make sure they cook through.
