Recipe story

Looking for a delicious, easy, and filling high-protein breakfast that’s also in a form of pancakes? Look no further, these Greek yogurt pancakes will change the way you think about pancakes. Greek yogurt gives them a nice and light consistency while keeping the calories in check and allowing you to get creative with your toppings. In my kitchen, bananas, fruits of all kinds, and some chocolate chips are always an option when making pancakes, along with some low-calorie Maple syrup but you can tweak the toppings to your preferences. This stack has been my personal go-to when I am looking for a tasty pre-workout, breakfast in a rush, or a dessert that allows me to indulge in something yum while keeping my health in check. As always, this stack goes very well with a cup of espresso or a black tea.
