Pumpkin Yogurt Pancakes

When I have a little extra time at the beginning of the week, I love being able to prep a few breakfasts to enjoy throughout the busy work week. Pancakes are one of my favorites because they stay fresh in the fridge and only take a minute or so to reheat in the microwave. These pancakes are chock-full of yummy Greek yogurt and canned pumpkin, which both provide great health benefits and help to keep you full until lunchtime. 


1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk the vanilla, eggs, yogurt, milk and pumpkin puree together.


3. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients.

4. Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat and coat with nonstick spray. Use a quarter-cup measure to cook 2-3 pancakes at a time; cook each pancake for 2 minutes, flip and cook for 2-3 minutes longer, or until golden brown and cooked through.



5. Serve pancakes topped with butter and a drizzle of pure maple syrup.
