In addition to my Meyer lemon craze I have had a serious appetite for breakfast foods. I’ve had breakfast for breakfast AND dinner some days as a result and I am perfectly okay with the situation. Of course this meant the combination my two current obsessions in today’s post, with an added bonus of Greek yogurt. I even topped it with Meyer lemon curd! Oh yea, curd is now for breakfast.

MEYER LEMON GREEK YOGURT PANCAKES
Makes 12 pancakes
4 egg whites
4 egg yolks
12 oz. (1-1/3 cup) plain Greek yogurt (I used Chobani 0%)
1-1/2 Tbsp sugar
1-1/2 Tbsp Meyer lemon zest, freshly grated
6 oz. (1-1/4 cup) whole wheat pastry flour
- In a mixer, on medium high speed, whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Remove egg whites to a separate bowl.
- In the now empty stand mixer bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, Greek yogurt, sugar, and lemon zest. Mix in the flour and whisk to combine.
- Whisk in about 1/4th of the egg whites into the yolk/yogurt mixture. Fold in the remaining egg whites. Batter will be thick; continue to find in egg whites until batter is consistent throughout.
- Heat a skillet over medium heat, spray with cooking spray, and cook pancakes (Note: you will need to use the back of a spoon to spread batter — it will be too thick to spread itself). Or, cook pancakes on an electric griddle. Serve topped with Meyer lemon curd and blueberries, or toppings of choice.
