2½ cups rolled oats
2 cups plain low fat or Greek yogurt
2 cups skim milk
2 teaspoons brown sugar
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
4 large eggs, beaten
½ cup chopped walnuts
½-1 cup pitted, chopped cherries
In a large bowl, combine oats, yogurt, milk and brown sugar. Stir in flours, baking soda and salt. Add beaten eggs and mix well. Stir in walnuts. Carefully, fold in cherries.
Heat a griddle over medium heat. When hot, working in batches, spoon a small amount of batter onto the griddle and cook until bubbles on top start to pop. Flip and cook until other side browns, about 2 minutes. Add additional milk if batter becomes too thick. Serve hot with your favorite syrup. A side of turkey bacon and fresh fruit completes this healthy, hearty breakfast.
