Lemon yogurt pancakes are a light, sweet, and decadent breakfast treat. But because of the addition of Greek yogurt, they are a little more healthy and have a bit of protein. Shhhh, don’t tell the family.
Pancakes are something that I only make when we have guests or on special occasions. And why? I love them. They’re easy. Well, no more. These lemon yogurt pancakes can be a weekend indulgence that isn’t really that indulgent.
WHAT DO I NEED FOR THIS RECIPE?
This recipe starts out with the typical pancake ingredients of flour, baking powder, baking soda, and a little salt.
Then it gets interesting. The addition of lemon zest and lemon juice adds tang and a bright lemon flavor to the batter.
Whole milk, lemon Greek yogurt, and eggs will add moisture. Honey will add a bit of sweetness. And finally, the teaspoon of vanilla extract smooths out the flavors and marries them together.
