Fall is here!  Enjoy my Apple Pie Greek Yogurt Pancakes Healthy for a protein packed twist on this classic breakfast food!

Apple Pie Greek Yogurt Pancakes Healthy for breakfast

Hi friends!

Aren’t pancakes just the best?  The hubs and I eat them for breakfast once over the weekend.  He cooks them and I’m border lined obsessed with them.  He honestly uses a pancake mix, but he doctors them up with all sorts of goodies.  They taste amazing and I let him do his thing.  You’ve probably seen me share a few on Instagram Stories in the past few months.  His pancakes will always be my favorite ever.

Life lesson 267: If a man makes you pancakes, don’t nitpick them!

On occasion I take over the pancake reigns OR we are having breakfast for dinner.  One of my favorite ways to mix it up is making a healthier version of pancakes (without the mix) using thick, creamy and protein packed greek yogurt.  Adding it makes for one delicious recipe for apple pancakes.

Yes! These Apple Pie Greek Yogurt Pancakes Healthy are legit!  Look at that syyyyyrrrrrruuuuuppppppp!

The batter is simple and easy to throw together.  I use ingredients I always keep on hand, and I suggest you do the same to have a nicely stocked pantry and fridge.

The trick to making them apple-yyyyy is GRATING the apple.  That way each bite gets a little flavor punch without adding too much work to the recipe.  I used an extra sweet and juicy honey crisp apple for recipe testing.

These babies are just sweet enough.  My Apple Pie Greek Yogurt Pancakes Healthy use a small amount of coconut sugar.  I also tested them with honey, but I felt the coconut sugar gave it more of an apple pie punch.  I also tested them with white wheat flour which also works, although I ended up settling on the white for the recipe.  It just depends on how healthy vs “pie” like you want them to taste.

This way is rich, satisfying and decadent.

    I like the idea of adding grated apple, not done this before although I frequently add berries.

    Now your husband is a really sweet guy, and these pancakes look AMAZING. I’ve never thought of grating the apple, but that’s a great idea. I will have to come back and make this deliciousness. That pile of syrup on top looks just absolutely yummy.
