Greek Yogurt Pancakes

Hello everyone!

No run for me tonight.  I have a (very) minor cold, but I decided it was a sign I should go to bed early tonight.  It’s ok, I had another great run yesterday (5 miles flew by), so thank goodness for these motivating Olympic events!  I don’t know what I’m going to do next week :(

But, on a brighter note, one more day!  Excited for the weekend?

I am excited to relax a little and get healthy, with a little unpacking and celebrating James’s birthday mixed in!  He’s turning the big 2-7 on Monday, so we are celebrating with some friends this weekend.  Hopefully I find my camera battery charger before then, which leads me to…

My camera charger is packed somewhere, and my battery AND back-up battery have died.  So here’s tonight’s breakfast for dinner recipe, sans an actual picture.

Greek Yogurt Pancakes (adapted from Julie’s recipe):


1 1/4 cups of oats

8 oz. of 0% plain greek yogurt

2 oz of ricotta cheese

2 eggs

2 t of cinnamon

Optional:  Chocolate chips <– not optional in this house


Add all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, to a bowl and mix with an immersion blender.

Add chocolate chips and stir into the batter.

Heat pan to med-high heat and make your pancakes.


These healthy pancakes were awesome for dinner.  James gave them the stamp of approval, which is big considering he was a little worried about them.

Well, that’s it for tonight.  I’m off to read “The Art of Fielding” and get to bed early.

    I hope your cold gets better soon, use it as an excuse to rest :) even though there’s no picture, those pancakes sound delicious! :D

  4. I’ve been making a lot of Julie’s protein pancakes lately. I’ve had a ton of cottage cheese in the fridge so I’ve been looking for ways to use it up. BTW, we are going to Crazy Water on Saturday. Have you ever been there?

    I love it when runs just seem to fly by! Ohhh I love pancakes with greek yogurt in them – they taste so much richer. Not to mention they have great satiety.
