Yummy Yummy Pancakes

I apologize for the lack of photos today, but I forgot to charge my camera - in any case these look like pancakes - so no big surprises!

I adapted a pancake recipe from the Joy of Cooking and it was my best attempt at lower-carb pancakes so far - the family loved them, and I honestly couldn't tell the difference betwen these and regular pancakes. They are very filling for me - I ate one pancake and a half slice of bacon and was pretty full - but even if I had been able to eat three, I think the stats would be ok (Haven't done a nutritional analysis, so caveat emptor)

Multigrain Protein Pancakes (Yields 18 medium pancakes - about 6 regular person servings, 9-18 WLS person servings)

Ingredients
1/3 cup Stone-Ground whole wheat flour
1/3 cup Soy flour
1/3 cup corn meal
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
Sugar Free equivalent of 2 Tsp sugar (I used some sugar twin and some splenda)

Whisk dry ingredients together

2 eggs
2 cups greek yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
2 - 4 Tbs melted butter (Optional)
1/2 almond or soy milk

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well with whisk.

Proceed in the usual fashion and cook your pancakes over medium heat.

These are no doubt carbier than my usual meals - but pancakes of any type are a once a week treat for me. I do start the day with a cup of protein coffee (27g protein), so this meal works well in terms of my overall stats for the day.
