This weekend, embrace the power of the pancake. It’s fluffy and sure to please a crowd. After all, who doesn’t love a pancake? Check out this just-a-tad decadent version.

Banana Yogurt Pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup fat free greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
