Combine all of your ingredients for your pancakes into either a food processor or blender. Process or blend everything together. Take out a stove top pan, turn your burner on Medium Heat, and then coat it with some non-stick cooking spray. Pour your mix in and cook each side of your pancake for around 2:00-3:00. Make your frosting by combining all of your frosting ingredients together in a bowl and mixing them around until it looks like frosting. Top your pancakes with the frosting. Mouthgasm!

  • This was fantastic! The pancake was moist and very tasty – both my husband and 5-year-old approved. I’m not sure I’ll make the frosting again unless I replace some of the yogurt with more cream cheese. (As a side note, I used 2% fat greek yogurt instead of fat free.) We’ll be keeping this in our regular rotation.
