our favorite breakfast

I probably make this easy & delicious breakfast about 2 times a week. It is that good... and that easy.

Banana Yogurt Pancakes


  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup plain or vanilla whole milk yogurt (we love Brown Cow), anything not light
  • 2/3 cup milk (we also use whole)
  • 3/4 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt (optional) or 2 tbsp pure maple syrup for a sweeter version (optional)
  • 1/2-1 semi mashed banana
  • vegetable oil for frying


  1. mix together the beaten egg and the yogurt, then stir in the milk, four, and the optional salt or maple syrup. mix until you have smooth batter. 
  2. heat a little oil in a skillet until sizzling hot. drop heaping tablespoons of batter into the pan, leaving plenty of space around each one, and flatten slightly with a spatula. cook for 1-2 minutes until lightly browned, then turn and cook further for another 1-2 minutes, until set in the center. 
  3. drizzle with pure maple syrup and/or serve scattered with fruit (we like peaches and blueberries).
