Chocolate Banana Greek Yogurt Pancakes - Healthy, protein-packed breakfast recipe

Friends, we did it!! We made it to the final week of the #HealthyNewYear Six-Week Challenge!! And our final challenge is a good one: Incorporating Full Fat Foods into a Healthy Diet. After all, fat is not the enemy. I’m looking at you Fat-Free Snackwell Cookies.

To kick us off, we have partnered with my dear friends at Stonyfield to celebrate the launch of their brand new product line of whole milk Greek yogurt. That’s right friends, full fat Greek yogurt!! The thick, creamy and decadent yogurt is not only packed with protein but is made with full fat milk to keep you satiated and satisfied.

You know what else it does? It creates killer pancakes that are light, fluffy and cake-like. I used the plain whole milk Greek yogurt in these Chocolate Banana Greek Yogurt Pancakes so that the ripe bananas and cocoa powder could really stand out but vanilla would work well too or even cherry.

We topped them with banana slices and a maple syrup but melted creamy peanut butter wouldn’t be a bad idea either. Just sayin’… BTW Be sure to head over and check out Dara’s Teriyaki Shrimp Tacos with Chili Lime Yogurt. Trust me, you’re going to want to her recipe.

Your fork is waiting.

    These look great! But I want to make them without the cocoa powder, would I need to add more flour to balance out the wet and dry ingredients?

      Yep just replace the amount of cocoa powder with flour!

    We actually eat all full fat foods (especially dairy!!) and honestly it tastes so good and rich that I can eat less of it and be totally satisfied. That being said, I would probably eat quite a few of these pancakes…because chocolate for breakfast. YES.
