Pineapple Pancakes with Honey Greek Yogurt Topping

What a very lazy weekend I had. Such weekends are a rarity which meant lying on the couch for hours at a time was pure bliss. I still did plenty that required energy, such as assembling my new TV stand, a little lab work, hanging new shelves for my ever-growing root beer collection, and even spent time in the kitchen making things such as these pancakes.

These were the result of my pondering what I could use in place of applesauce in one of my favorite pancake recipes (apple sauce pancakes – which oddly I have yet to share on here). For some reason I was feeling very tropical and went with crushed pineapple. Then got a little crazy and mixed honey with Greek yogurt and plopped it on top. It was a great idea.
