Let’s talk about pancakes. Clearly, it’s a problem at this point. If you missed the recipe for the greek yogurt apple cinnamon pancakes, this will suffice as a good ‘sit in’ just in case. I could eat breakfast all three meals of the day and most days, the thing that stops me is….well, now that I think about it, there’s nothing stopping me….you may also consider some of that brown sugar spicy bacon to go with these…just a mere suggestion 🙂
Anywho….pancakes. I was testing out pancake recipes on a recent weekend and thought “what the hell?’ and plopped in some Chobani vanilla yogurt in my mix. New Hope Mills is my personal favorite, a treat from the motherland. When I go home, there’s a list of food items I MUST buy and this pancake mix and real NYS Maple Syrup are two of those things. Paired with some hot coffee with homemade pumpkin spice syrup, it was a breakfast fit for a foodie.
These pancakes are dense and delicious. The extra punch from the greek yogurt makes them more filling than traditional pancakes so a few go a long way. The pumpkin puree and spices adds a great flavor to the pancake and turns them a delightful color. Any mix will do: bisquik for example or anything that requires you to add liquids such as eggs, oil, milk, or water. I omit the egg and oil and go straight for the chobani and add water as needed to make it the desired thickness. You can adjust this for one person or 10 or use regular yogurt and add your own apples if you don’t have any Cho just hanging around.
- 1 c. mix or homemade mix of choice
- 1/4 c. pumpkin puree
- 1 6 oz. container of Chobani vanilla greek yogurt
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

- Mix the first four ingredients together and add water according to your personal liking for thickness/viscosity of pancake batter.
- Cook on a hot griddle or in a hot pan that’s been sprayed with non-stick spray.
- Cook about 3 minutes per side or until bubbles form and the bottom is golden brown.
- Serve hot and fresh!
PS: Chobani did not pay me to write this post. I really just love their product that much!
