Banana Yogurt Griddlecakes

I was inspired by my friend who tried a vegan recipe for banana pancakes to try something healthy but tasty. I have nothing against vegans, I just know that its not my thing. I'm not big on making foods that imitate other food. I love soy but I like my soy to not try to be something its not.

So here's a very tasty recipe for somewhat healthy pancakes, its a mod of the griddlecakes from my fave cookbook The Fannie Farmer.

3/4 cup yogurt
1 mashed well ripened banana
2 tbsp melted butter or margarine
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar (easily omitted if you want)

Mash banana and mix in yogurt, egg, and melted butter. Sift in flour, baking soda, salt and sugar. Stir until well mixed, if too thick add a little more yogurt as it will depend on the fat content of your yogurt. I used Liberty's Bioyogurt which worked out to 3/4 of a cup to get the right pancake consistency.

Oil & heat a griddle pan, pour a ladle full of batter on griddle, flip when cake is full off bubbles. Watch that the griddle isn't too hot at the outside will burn before the inside is cooked. This recipe makes about 6 good sized pancakes. Store them in a 200 degree oven while you wait for the remainder to cook.

They were extra tasty with Summerland boysenberry syrup.
