Apple Cinnamon Greek Yogurt Pancakes

Breakfast, Fruit, Healthy | December 3, 2013 | By

Good news everyone, I have another pancake recipe! These are a twist on my Greek Yogurt Pancakes recipe because I added apple and cinnamon. They are also fluffy and have lots of texture from the yogurt, but with more flavor!

At home, everyone in my family wakes up at different times so we all eat breakfast separately. My dad gets up super early, way before the rest of us. So when I decided to make pancakes for my family, I should have known 9 AM would be considered late to start preparing.

While I was making the pancakes, my dad was pacing around and looking very hungry. I’ll give him credit though for  contributing by shredding the apple! This recipe only makes 6 pancakes so if you have a large, hungry family, you may need to double the ingredients.

APPLE CINNAMON GREEK YOGURT PANCAKES
(makes 6)

Ingredients
1 egg
3/4 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup half-and-half
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large apple

Directions

Mix egg, Greek yogurt and half-and-half together in a large bowl until well-blended.

In the same bowl, add flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla. Whisk until smooth and even.

Peel and core an apple. Using a grater, grate peeled and cored apple into thin shreds. Add shredded apples to the batter and mix together.

Heat a pan to medium heat and spray it with oil. Drop 1/4 cupfuls of pancake batter into the pan and cook until pancakes turn golden brown underneath. Flip the pancakes to the other side and cook until also golden brown.

Serve with maple syrup or other toppings.
