• Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pancakes

    October 25, 2009

    Mmm! DELICIOUS breakfast this morning! :mrgreen:

    These Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pancakes are equally delicious and satisfying. The protein from the Oikos and eggs and the fiber from the oats and apples filled me up and kept me full for hours. And the combination of sweet honey Oikos, brown sugar, and cinnamon provided the perfect flavors for a cool, crisp autumn morning breakfast.


    I woke up with the sun this morning, but instead of shooting out of bed to start my day, I relaxed and daydreamed about breakfast! Oh, the mind of a food blogger!

    I recently received an email from the Stonyfield folks about their new sweepstakes– just for bloggers:

    Stonyfield invites you to take a deep breath, say “Ohm” and enter the Na-Moo-Ste Giveaway! If your post wins, you and a friend will relax and revitalize during a weekend yoga retreat at the beautiful Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health. You will enjoy two days and two nights of rest and renewal for your body, mind and spirit.

    This prize includes:

    • Transportation to Kripalu Center, a premier yoga retreat located in Lenox, MA
    • Accommodations at Kripalu in a Standard Plus Room with delicious all-natural meals
    • Daily experiential workshops and guided outdoor activities
    • Daily yoga and YogaDance™ classes
    • Evening events
    • Use of Kripalu amenities: sauna, whirlpool, fitness room, lake front beach, and hiking trails

    There are three different ways to enter the Na-Moo-Ste Giveaway:

    A) Share an original story about why you need to say “Ohm”

    B) Post a photo of you doing yoga in a toga (Oikos is Greek yogurt after all!)

    C) Share a recipe you created using Oikos yogurt as an ingredient

    To learn more about the contest, visit the Oikos fanpage on Facebook.

    Here’s my submission for the Stonyfield Oikos contest:

    Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pancakes


    Makes 6 pancakes


    • 1 cup Old Fashion oats
    • 6 oz. Oikos honey yogurt
    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 tbsp canola oil
    • 2 tbsp brown sugar
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 tsp baking powder


    • Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and blend well.
    • Heat a skillet on medium-low heat and coat with cooking spray.
    • Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to portion the batter in the pan.
    • Cook each side of the pancake for about 2 minutes and flip.
    • Serve warm with cinnamon-brown sugar apples.

    I’m off to the dog park with the boys!

    Happy Sunday! 😎

    Those look SO delicious, I hope you win!


    Tracy Gardner July 26, 2010 at 10:36 am

    I tested these out along with a boxed healthy brand and these won out hands down. I added blueberries to the batter. Oh… I forgot the flour and they turned out great – whoops… I used a sugar free maple syrup for our topping but big hit with the family! They also enjoyed scrambled eggs and sausage but for me just the pancakes. Great post!


    Elizabeth Reading Between the Miles June 4, 2011 at 8:42 am

    I was just wondering if you would be able to sub. in Wheat flour instead of all purpose? Just wondering if the ratios would be the same?? Thank you!


    Tina June 5, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    @Elizabeth Reading Between the Miles: Yep, the ratios would be the same.
