  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 cup + 1 TB extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil or grass fed butter, for cooking pancakes
  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  2. Separate the eggs and place the whites in the bowl to beat to stiff peaks.
  3. Combine the egg yolks with the yogurt, milk, vanilla, maple syrup and 1 TB of fat in another bowl.
  4. Whip the whites to stiff peaks.
  5. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Fold in the whites.
