Strawberry Greek Yogurt Pancakes cover picture

What a beautiful Saturday morning at 72 degrees on May 4th! Beautiful weather for so early in May. A great weekend to go outside to clean up a few gardens and start shaking the winter dirt off the patio. Cannot wait to get the patio set up with the grill and outdoor furnitures to enjoy the warm weather! I will not plant any annuals until Memorial Day weekend since there is still a chance of a killing frost at night. The weather around here changes so rapidly!

As part of my pancake series, this morning I made strawberry syrup for my pancakes. I did not add any berries to the batter but you could add some blueberries and other ingredients if you wish. The prominent flavor with these pancakes is the strawberry syrup. As you can see in the below picture, this recipe makes only a small number of pancakes. You could double or triple the ingredients to make more especially if you want left overs for the next day. You can cook down the strawberries as I did for the cover picture with pancake syrup. Another option is to serve your pancakes as you typically do and top with sliced strawberries that have not been cooked in the syrup.

Pancake Ingredients
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
6-ounces plain, no-fat Greek yogurt
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 egg
½ cup almond milk

About 1 cup strawberries, sliced or diced
1/2 cup reduced calorie pancake syrup
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to its warm setting. I like to place my pancakes in the oven to stay warm while I am making them. Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix.

Preheat the griddle on medium heat. Make sure the grill is hot. If a drop of water sizzles the grill is ready. Cook about 2-minutes or until the bubbles start to pop. Then turn over and cook for about another minute. Place in oven to keep them warm.

To make the syrup, place pancake syrup, strawberries, and vanilla in a saucepan over low to medium heat. Bring the mixture to a soft boil, and stir every few minutes. Once the mixture begins to breakdown, remove from heat and serve over pancakes.

        Right now I am making Green Tea ice cream!

      2. willowdot21 says:

        OH! that sounds really interesting. A friend of mine has not long returned from China, she enjoyed having Green Tea in Starbucks … Starbucks in China, is nothing and no where sacred!

      3. Bernice says:

        The green tea ice cream is still in the freezer. The initial taste test is promising. That is funny about your friend having green tea ice cream at Starbucks in China.

        She sent me a photo I thought it was mushy peas!!

      5. Bernice says:

        That does not sound appetizing. Maybe they made it wrong, ha ha ha. It should look like ice cream – except it is green. Hopefully when I take my final pictures it will not look like mushy peas – which I do not like. 🙂
