When trying to keep my family, and of course myself, eating anything that resembles healthy food, it seems that breakfast is one of the hardest meals to conquer. A person can only eat so many eggs and the variations I’ve tried of whole wheat, protein packed pancakes and other goodies have been met with less than enthusiastic reviews. Now that our friends at Weight Watchers have made nonfat Greek yogurt zero points on the new Freestyle program, I’ve re-invented my classic sour cream pancakes into a healthier breakfast option. My teenage sons didn’t even notice I’d changed the recipe. I’d say that’s a success! And they’re only 1 point each on Weight Watchers Freestyle! ~ Tracy
2 c. plain nonfat Greek yogurt
1 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
4 eggs, slightly beaten
½ c. low-fat milk (1%)
1 tsp. vanilla
Pour Greek yogurt into a medium sized mixing bowl or the bowl of electric stand mixer. Combine all dry ingredients and add to yogurt. Mix just until dry ingredients are incorporated into the yogurt.
Combine eggs, milk, and vanilla. Add to yogurt mixture and mix until well combined.
Cook in sprayed skillet or griddle pan until each side is golden brown. You can gauge when to flip each pancake when bubbles begin to form on the uncooked side.
Weight Watchers Info.: Makes 14 pancakes at approximately 5 in. diameter each. Each pancake is 1 SmartPoint on the new Freestyle plan.
