blueberry yogurt pancakes

pancakes are not part of my typical day. generally we do not make the fluffy, thick kind often in poland, we stick to crepes with jam or sweet curd cheese filling for dinner. i know i should make pancakes more often, as they are one of the bets things ever for a sunday breakfast, or just anytime you’re craving something sweet yet healthy. this particular recipe produces pancakes that are not very sweet, with a delicate tangy hint of yogurt that i love, and blueberries (so obvious in america, so rare around here) add sourness and a change in texture. those could be eaten with clone syrup, or maybe a chocolate one, but i prefer simplicity: another handful of sweet ripe fruit and it’s perfect.





blueberry yogurt pancakes
(for 2; makes 6 medium-sized)

1 egg
1 ½ tbsp sugar
4 tbsp flour
½ tsp baking powder
1 tbsp oil
3 tbsp yogurt
½ cup blueberries
salt
butter

beat the egg with sugar until creamy-coloured and fluffy (about 3 minutes), add oil and mix for 1 minute
add flour sifted with a bit of salt and baking powder, mix on low speed for a moment, then add yogurt and mix until incorporated
toss in the blueberries and mix in with spatula / spoon
melt about 1 tsp butter and fry the pancakes for about 2 minutes on each side, covered (it makes them cook quicker and more importantly stay moister)
serve warm with fresh blueberries, maybe whipped cream or maple syrup

  5. These were amazing as is but now im trying with some substitutes... such as egg whites, GF flour + Sunwarrior raw vegan vanilla protein powder blend, and i used Dannon light & fit greek yogurt coconut vanilla flavor instead of just plain yogurt. :)
