Tip For Making Greek yogurt protein pancakes
You can also make this protein pancake recipe with vanilla Greek yogurt for a sweeter option. I love the plain Greek yogurt option and add sweetness with my toppings. Walden Farms makes a tasty sugar-free maple pancake syrup that I love.
A few more favorite options to add sweetness without sugar or calories are homemade fruit compotes. My favorites are Blueberry Compote and Raspberry Compote. They are both easy recipes and so delicious on everything from pancakes and waffles to ice cream and pound cake. A couple more sugar-alternative options are sprinkling Swerve or Whole Earth sweetener on top of fresh fruit.
