Greek yogurt is delicious all on its own, but it can also be added to your everyday cooking for a fun and nutritional twist. Not only does it contain about twice the protein of regular yogurt, it is also high in calcium and vitamin D. Try the recipe below for a breakfast you can feel good about feeding the whole family!

Ingredients:
One 5.3 oz. container nonfat Greek yogurt
1 large egg (or 2 large egg whites)
½ cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ cup fresh blueberries (or ½ large banana)
Directions:

  • In a mixing bowl, mix the flour and baking soda.
  • Add yogurt and egg/egg whites.
  • Stir until a thick batter is formed.
  • Lightly coat a pan with nonstick cooking spray and place over medium heat.
  • Pour batter into 5-inch circles.
