Milk Kefir Pancakes
Milk kefir is most likely one the healthiest drinks on earth. I use it all the time to make yummy smoothies, but also to replace buttermilk or milk in any recipes like in these souffle-like pancakes I make often for breakfast or brunch with friends and families.
Teach your spouse and kids to make these thick, fluffy, and full of goodness treats, and you'll thank me during your special days when they do make them for you!
makes about 12 4-inch pancakes
Mix well in a medium bowl:
1 cup milk kefir
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon melted butter or other oil
1 cup flour (or replace with gluten-free, or half-almond half-flour)
a pinch of salt and a splash of vanilla
In another bowl:
with blender or balloon whisk, whisk 2 egg whites until you get soft-peak
Mix the batter and whipped egg whites gently, try not to deflate the whites. It is totally okay to have streaks of white.
Drop gently a spoonful of batter to the pan or griddle that has been thinly-coated with butter or oil on medium-high heat. Let cook about 2-3 min per side. Enjoy warm with powdered sugar, butter, maple syrup, sweetened kefir or yogurt.
