Greek Yogurt Pancakes (Hotcakes)


This recipe is the kind that will go instantly into a regular weekend morning rotation. You can use cottage cheese or ricotta cheese instead of greek yogurt, all purpose flour instead of whole wheat flour, add your favorite berries, chopped nuts, dried currents or cranberries, so adjust it to your taste. They were delicious and of course we loved them.
