3 Oz. lemon flavored low carb yogurt (half a carton)
½ Cup skim milk
1 lemon, juice and zest added to mix
1 Tbsp. Lankato Monk fruit sweetener (optional)
2 Tsp. Land ‘o Lakes light butter
¼ Cup warmed sugar free maple syrup
½ Cup fresh (or frozen) blueberries
Swerve Confectioner’s sugar to garnish (optional)
1. Mix the Kodiak mix with the yogurt, milk, lemon juice and ½ the lemon zest and Lankato if using.
2. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and add one teaspoon of butter. Heat until the butter is melted and bubbling. (2-3 minutes)
3. Drop heaping tablespoons of the batter on to the skillet and cook until light brown (about 2 minutes). Carefully flip and cook another two minutes until done.
NOTE: Here is another healthier choice when it comes to breakfast or brunch. One of my go to items, Kodiak Cake mix, is used here to create mini pancakes that are full of whole grain and protein. I’ve used skim milk, low carb yogurt and light butter in this recipe but you know the drill, if you prefer to use the full fat items, it won’t hurt this dish a bit! I don’t always add the monk fruit sweetener to the batter (I think it is sweet enough when I add the syrup.) but feel free to add that, regular sugar or another substitute. Swerve is a zero calorie option.
I really like using the sugar free syrup but once again, you are in charge and you can decide if pure maple syrup is the way to go for you. Other berries can be substituted and if the mood strikes, add more butter on top. You can keep this as healthy or as decadent as you like.
I’ve always like the way sifted powder sugar looks on top of desserts so I invested a whole $10 in this little sugar sifter canister that I’ve had for ten years! This makes it easy to throw some powdered sugar on my baking and kicks up the presentation big time and I don’t have to measure or mess with sifters, etc. I just fill up the little can and keep it with my other condiments. You can get one at Amazon.com (Actually, they come in a set of three. I gave one to my sister and used the other for cinnamon.) Enjoy.
