Oat and Yogurt Pancakes

Combining oats and yogurt isn't news for breakfast, but putting them together in a pancake is a delicious (and wholesome) way to upgrade your short stack. If you want to give your pancakes an extra fiber boost for added goodness, use the optional Hi-Maize Fiber called for in the recipe.

Oat and Yogurt Pancakes

Instructions

  1. Whisk the eggs and butter or vegetable oil together until completely combined and smooth. Whisk in the yogurt.
  2. Whisk the dry ingredients together.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the yogurt mixture and stir until evenly combined. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes; it will thicken slightly as it sits.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons of milk (or apple juice); if the batter is still thick, add the remaining milk or juice to adjust the batter's consistency.
  5. While the batter rests, preheat a griddle to 350°F or place a heavy skillet over medium heat.
  6. Drop the batter by the 1/4-cup onto the heated griddle or pan. Cook on one side until bubbles form and break and the bottom is golden brown.
  7. Flip and cook on the second side until done.
  8. Serve warm, with fruit and syrup.
  9. Leftover pancakes can be frozen for a few weeks and reheated in the toaster.

Tips from our Bakers

  • If you want to use Greek yogurt for this recipe, whisk together 1 cup Greek yogurt and 1/4 cup milk, and use that in place of the plain yogurt.
