  • 3 Tbsp. All-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. Buckwheat flour
  • 1 Tsp. Sugar (or Lakanto sweetener)
  • 1/8 Tsp. Baking soda
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 Cup Whole milk (or skim milk)
  • 1 Large egg, separated
  • 2 Tbsp. Unsalted butter, melted plus more for cooking (or Land O’Lakes Lite Butter)
  • Fat-Free Fage Greek Yogurt (or Sour Cream)
  • Fresh Chives
  • Salmon Roe (or Caviar)


  • In a bowlwhisk together the flours, sugar, soda, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Whisk in the milk and the egg yolk. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg white until soft peaks form.  Fold the egg white into the batter until combined. Fold the 2 tablespoons melted butter into the batter.
  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat about 1/2 tablespoon of butter over medium heat until hot. Working in batches, spoon one tablespoon of the batter into the skillet and cook until bubbly and dry on top, about 1 minute. Flip the blini over and cook until golden on the bottom, about 45 seconds more. Transfer the blini to a serving platter and repeat with the remaining batter.  These are supposed to be small, appetizer size pancakes, so don’t use more than about a tablespoon of batter.
  • Serve the blini topped with the Greek yogurt or sour cream and top that with a little salmon roe and two small pieces of cut chives.
