Ingredients

For the Pancakes:

  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 dashes salt

For the Filling and Toppings:

  • 3 cups Greek nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 3 cups berries (blackberries, blueberries and sliced or cut strawberries)
  • 5 tablespoons granola

Instructions

For the Pancakes:

  • In a medium size bowl, add flour, milk, egg, sugar, vanilla extract, baking soda and salt.  Whisk together until fairly smooth (still has some lumps in it).
  • Heat a medium size non-stick skillet on medium heat.   
  • To the pan, ladle in 1/3 of the batter. 
  • When the bottom side of the pancake turns a golden color flip it onto the other side (about 2 minutes). Cook until both sides are a golden color (about 4 minutes total for each side).

For the Filling and Topping:

  • Set a pancake on a plate and spread about ¼ cup of yogurt on top of each pancake.  Drizzle half of the maple syrup on top of the yogurt (reserving the rest for the topping).
  • Roll the pancake and set it in the center of the serving plate. Repeat the process with the remaining pancakes. 
  • Top the pancake rolls with the remaining yogurt and add the berries. 
  • Top with the granola. Drizzle maple syrup on top and serve.

Notes

TIPS:

  1. It's a good idea to crack the egg open first in a separate bowl instead of cracking the egg right into the batter.  This way, you can see if the egg is bad first before it's mixed in with the batter.  Also, if there's a piece of shell that makes its way along with the egg, when in a separate bowl the shell can be removed before adding the egg into the batter.
  2. Mix the pancake batter just enough to incorporate the ingredients so that there are still some lumps left in the batter.   If the pancake batter is over-mixed gluten can form, making the pancakes chewy rather than light and fluffy.
