Greek Yogurt Panacakes
You will never eat normal pancakes again! These are a delicious, fat free variation and they are packed with protein!
- 6oz plain fat-free greek yogurt
- 1 egg white
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- Optional: Fruit and/or flavorings (I added a diced strawberry and a bit of cocoa powder)
Mix the flour and baking soda in a small bowl. In another bowl, combine greek yogurt and egg white. Then combine all the ingredients in one bowl, and add in any other flavorings you may like. Heat a skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Use a spoon to scoop large globs of dough onto the skillet. When the bottom of a pancake gets firm, flip it! Continue flipping and heating until pancakes are cooked all the way through. Top with whatever you’d like - a bit of butter and light maple syrup always does the trick for me :) Makes about 5 medium-sized pancakes or 3 larger pancakes.

Adapted from this recipe.
- 6 eggs (I used 5 whole eggs and 1 egg white)
- 1/8 medium zucchini, diced
- 1/8 medium onion, diced
- 1/8 medium red pepper, diced
- 1/8 medium green pepper, diced
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Allspice seasoning to taste
Makes 6 egg muffins.
Preheat oven to 375 F. Use regular or silicone muffin pan. If using silicone pan, spray with nonstick spray. If using regular muffin pan, put two paper liners into each slot, then spray liner with nonstick spray.
In the bottom of the muffin cups layer vegetables and cheese. You want the muffin cups to be about 2/3 full, with just enough room to pour a little egg around the other ingredients. Break eggs into large bowl, add allspice, and beat well. Pour egg into each muffin cup until it is 3/4 full. Stir slightly with a fork. Bake 25-35 minutes until muffins have risen and are slightly browned and set.Muffins will keep at least a week in the refrigerator without freezing. Egg muffins can be frozen and reheated. For best results, thaw in refrigerator before reheating. Microwave on high about 2 minutes to reheat.Nutritional Info Per Serving (1 serving = 1 egg muffin):Calories: 93 | Carbs: 1g | Fat: 7g | Protein: 8g
