These pancakes were pretty darn delicious. If you are willing to spend some extra time making these, its well worth it. They have oats and greek yogurt in them! I wouldn’t call these healthy…. but different! This recipe is from the lovely cookbook, The Newlywed Cookbook by Sarah Copeland. You can find it here . Also check out Sarah’s amazing blog here!
- 2 cups of fresh blackberries
- 1/4 cup raw sugar
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 + 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup rolled oats
- 2 tbs sugar
- 1 + 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 heaping tsp baking soda
- 1/4 sea salt
- 1 cup greek yogurt, plus more for garnish
- 1 cup milk (I used 1%)
- 4 tbs unsalted buter, melted, plus more for the griddle/pan
- 2 large eggs
To Make The Blackberry Crush Topping:
In a large enough bowl, combine the berries and sugar and crush them together with a fork. Strain the juice into a small pot and set aside the berries. Heat the juice over medium heat and simmer, until it is thick and syrupy, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the maple syrup. Let it cool slightly, then pour over the blackberries and mix together. Set aside for now.
To Make the Pancakes:
Whisk together the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the yogurt, milk, melted butter, and eggs. Make a well in the dry ingredients and whisk in the wet ingredients until well combined. The batter should be thick with bubbles on the surface. I don’t think I need to explain the rest, everyone knows how to make pancakes right? I used my griddle which is amazing, no more trying to flip them in a pan. Once your pancakes are ready, stack em up and add some more yogurt if you like, or just pour on some blackberry/syrup topping. Enjoy!
