Drum roll please....and the winner of the Yo Baby "best yogurt recipe" winner is....Mara Stephens (huge applause and standing ovation heard around the world)!
Weelicious recently held a contest for people to come up with the best recipe using Yo Baby's plain yogurt. There were so many interesting and delicious submissions that we had a really difficult time deciding on just one winner. From Kristin Laird's Banana Bread to Trina Anderson's Pee-Wee Pops (I just love that name), we had an embarrassment of riches in the submissions department -- so thank you to all of you who took the time, energy and creativity to send your ideas in to us. After many testings, tastings and deliberations, we finally chose Mara's heavenly Banana Almond Pancakes. They're fluffy and as light as air (not to mention totally addictive). It only took us minutes to whip them up, which makes them a perfect choice in the morning, and since these pancakes are made with both plain yogurt and almond flour, they're also a terrific source of protein.
We're big pancake fans in our house and this recipe will definitely be part of our weekly breakfast rotation.
