Yogurt & Apple Sauce Pancakes

 Super easy recipe, makes 7.

In a large bowl, mix together:

- 2/3 cup plain yogurt (Balkan style)
- 1/3 cup apple sauce
- 2 tbsp agave syrup
-  1 whole egg

Then add:

- 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking powder (magic powder)

Do not overmix!

Heat a lightly oiled pan over medium heat. Pour ~ 1/4cup of the batter into the pan and cook for about 3 minutes, until bubbles start to form and the bottom is golden brown. Flip over to the other side and cook for another 1-2 minutes, until lightly browned.
Repeat with the remaining batter.

I served them with organic agave syrup. Also delicious topped with fresh berries, honey-yogurt sauce, and so on.
