Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp almond meal
  • 3 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp flax meal
  • 8 oz vanilla greek yogurt (or other flavor, banana is a great option!)
  • two packets splenda
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons skim milk (or milk substitute)

Directions

pancakes spread

  1. Mix the flours, flax, baking soda, splenda and salt together
  2. Whisk the eggs and vanilla in a separate bowl.
  3. Mix the greek yogurt into the dry ingredients and stir in egg mixture.**
  4. Bake in a pan or on a griddle-type-pan (is that what they are called? griddles?), but beware, these pancakes spread!! whoops!
  5. Bake a few minutes on each side.

**The batter was a little thick so I added a tiny bit of fat free half and half to it and it was perfect.

I was also skeptical that I would stay full, but boy was I wrong! I wasn’t hungry for at least 6 hours afterwards! AND they heated up well for breakfast this morning.
