Whey Peachy Pancakes

Let's see, we've already made pancakes with Bananas, Blueberries, and Apples, so why not peaches? And since we made Greek yogurt the other day, we now have healthy and tangy liquid whey that we need to use, so we're going to put that tang to good use by incorporating it into these Whey Peachy Pancakes.

Removing the whey from yogurt takes the sting out of the flavor and creates a milder substance that can be easily substituted for sour cream. The flavor we want removed from the yogurt to create a different taste and texture, is the same flavor we really want in this recipe to give the pancakes a lift, so to speak. The ingredient list below looks fairly standard for pancakes, but trust me, the whey, peaches, and nutmeg help make this no ordinary breakfast cake.

If I dare say - and I do - these cakes taste a lot like Peach Cobbler without the ice cream. When taking a poll after serving them to nieces and nephews, I found that I was not alone in my assessment. So, go ahead and try them out for yourself and conduct a poll of your own!

Whey Peachy Pancakes

1-1/2 Cups Flour
*we like using at least 1/2 oat flour
One Teaspoon Salt
3 Tablespoons Sugar
1- 3/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
2 Eggs, beaten
3 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, or Butter, melted
1-1/4 Cups Liquid Whey
One Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
One Peach, diced small
Sprinkles of Nutmeg

Pour all the dry ingredients into one bowl and the wet ones in another. Then mix them altogether. Pour desired-size pancake onto a hot griddle and sprinkle a little nutmeg on top. Flip pancake when tiny bubbles form in the batter.

Drown them in maple syrup, lightly drizzle the maple syrup, or just eat them plain - they can certainly stand on their alone and still shine!

Have a Peachy Day!
