1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt

2. Add remaining ingredients except baking powder and blend until batter becomes smooth.

3. Add baking powder last and blend for a few seconds until fully incorporated.

4. Drop 1/4 cup batter at a time onto a medium-hot skillet with coconut oil and cook until edges have set and bubbles begin to form on the tops of pancakes (about 2-3 minutes).
