Almond Banana Pancakes


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.

Congratulations Mara!

    My son is on a gluten free diet. Could I make this recipe with 1 1/2 cups of almond flour instead of the 1/2 cup regular flour?

      I would use a different gluten free flour, try something like oat flour.

    We have made these every Saturday morning for the last few weeks- easy, quick, & soooooo good. We make them with honey & lactose free yoghurt.

    I had a sleepless-mommy moment and grabbed strawberry instead of plain yogurt, but used it anyway and oh my gosh--they're the best pancakes I've ever made. Love this recipe. Will do plain yogurt next time, though! So sweet they could be dessert.

    Thanks for another delicious and healthy recipe! I make them every week for my 22 mo twins. Today we made them with applesauce instead of bananas because that is what I had on-hand, and they turned out great!

    I made these today, and they were amazing. I didn't have yogurt, so I used sour cream. Thanks again for these great recipes!

    just made this for breakfast, but did not have almond meal, so I made my own. Used Trader Joe's dry roasted and unsalted almonds and ground them up in the food processor. Also, did not have a ripe banana, so defrosted one from the freezer. The pancakes were delicious. Fluffy with a nutty bite.

    Love this recipe. We use it all the time and have passed it on to countless others who've enjoyed them at our house. Never bother with separate mixing - we just bung all the ingredients in a bowl and mix it all up. Also yummy dotted with a few blueberries halfway through the cooking process. Thanks for a brilliant recipe.

    Love these -- I love that there is protein in them! Do you think it would be possible to make waffles out of this recipe?
