These Greek Yogurt Pancakes with Blueberries & Honey take a lighter approach to a breakfast and brunch staple. Unlike most pancakes, they aren’t laden with cream, refined sugar, or other high-calorie ingredients. Instead, we used white whole wheat flour, Greek yogurt, eggs, and coconut milk to optimize flavor. And the best part? This recipe remains true to our healthy mantra. Blueberries and honey make these Greek yogurt pancakes naturally sweet and guilt-free.
You can serve these at your next brunch, or just whip up a batch for your next weekend family breakfast! You can add or substitute fruit toppings, such as strawberries or bananas, or drizzle with a touch more honey or maple syrup if your sweet tooth isn’t satisfied.
