I have to admit, I didn’t really like the way they came out; although that may be partially my fault. I have a quart of plain greek yogurt so I used it but I didn’t measure it. I think I may have used to much yogurt and not enough flour although I did add more when the pancakes started to come out rather thin.
I made the banana version. I used to ripe bananas that I had in the freezer and sweetened it with honey (and brown sugar). I also added some nutmeg and cinnamon.
The pancakes were nothing compared to my Blueberry Lemon Pancakes but I will try it again some other time.
* Since posting I have used greek yogurt in Mashed Sweet Potatoes (very good) and oatmeal (not bad).

Yield: Five 4-inch pancakes
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 5 min
One 5.3-ounce container nonfat Greek Yogurt (any flavor- see *Tips)
1 large egg (or 2 large egg whites)
1/2 cup Gold Medal® All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup fresh blueberries (or 1/2 large banana)
1. Mix yogurt and egg in a medium bowl until blended and smooth. Add flour and baking soda and stir until the dry ingredients are mixed in. The batter will be thick.

Spread each of the batter scoops into an even circle. Dot blueberries or bananas on top of each pancake. Cook for about 3 minutes or until golden brown, then flip and cook the other side for about 2 minutes, until it is golden brown too. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve with additional fruit and/or syrup.
