Some days I make good decisions. Some days I don’t. I thought my decision to buy 3 – 32 ounce containers of Greek Gods Honey Flavored Greek Yogurt that doesn’t expire until December 2, was a great decision. It’s probably because I love this greek yogurt. I have my friend to blame, she got me hooked on it.
I hate yogurt, I told her. You won’t hate this yogurt, she told me.
She wins. She always wins when it comes to food. But, I’m not certain why I thought I’d eat it for three weeks in a row, with Thanksgiving being one of those weeks in-between. I had pie to eat for breakfast that week. Duh.
So, when she told me to make these awesome greek yogurt pancakes with my almost expired yogurt, I trusted her.
Not only did I make the recipe, I made it times FIVE. You can find the original recipe (for one serving) here
Greek Yogurt Pancakes
1 – 32 oz container of Greek Gods Honey Flavored Greek Yogurt
5 – eggs
2.5 cups flour
5 -tsp baking soda
Stir yogurt until it’s very creamy, then add eggs and stir again until all eggs are incorporated. In a separate bowl mix flour and baking soda. Pour yogurt/egg mixture on top of flour and mix, mix, mix. I’m not sure if you can over mix, but I realized the longer it sat in the bowl the more the flour started to dissolve and the batter puffed up. I heated my griddle and went to town, cooking up 36 pancakes!
My kids loved them. And, I loved them after I cleaned up the mess.
They were the fluffiest, lightest pancakes ever. But they do expand when you cook ‘em, so watch out. (;
