Greek Yogurt Pancakes

Servings: 4 (makes 10-12 pancakes)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 large ripe peach, pitted and ½-inch diced
  • 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon julienned fresh mint (optional)
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ¾ cup whole or 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • unsalted butter, for frying
  • maple syrup, for serving

Instructions

  • First, macerate the fruit: in a small bowl, combine the blueberries, peaches, 2 teaspoons of the sugar, and the mint, if using. Toss and set aside while you make the pancakes, tossing occasionally.
  • Turn the oven to 200 degrees and place an ovenproof dish or platter in the oven.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. In a separate, medium bowl, combine the eggs, yogurt, milk, remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, and vanilla, and whisk until smooth.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined (there may still be small lumps in the batter.)
  • In a large (12-inch) non-stick skillet, heat 1/2 tablespoon butter over medium-low heat.  Scoop a heaping 1/3 cup pancake batter onto one side of the skillet and spread lightly into an even circle with the bottom of the measuring cup. Scoop another 1/3 cup of batter onto the other side of the pan to form another pancake. Cook for about 2 minutes, until bubbles form on the pancakes and the bottoms are golden brown, lowering the heat if the pancakes brown too quickly (see note). Flip the pancakes and cook for another minute. Transfer them to the platter in the oven, and scoop out two more pancakes. Repeat this process with the remaining batter, adding more butter to the pan as needed.
  • Serve the pancakes warm, with the macerated fruit and maple syrup.
    Note: In my experience, making pancakes involves a bit of trial and error. I usually adjust the heat between low and medium-low as I cook, making sure the pancakes don't brown too quickly.
