The perfect pancake doesn’t have the be doused in sweet maple syrup and served for breakfast!

12 Mini Pancakes


For the Pancakes

  • 2 cups Bob’s Red Mill gluten free flour
  • 2 Tbsp. Swerve sugar substitute
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 Heinen’s jumbo cage-free brown eggs
  • 2 tsp. dried dill
  • Heinen’s ghee cooking spray

For the Greek Yogurt

  • ½ cup FAGE Greek yogurt
  • 1.5 Tbsp. scallions, snipped into small pieces with scissors
  • 1 Tbsp. Heinen’s honey
  • Juice ¼ lemon

For the Toppings

  • Verlasso smoked salmon
  • Dollop of Greek yogurt (above)
  • Scallions


  1. In a bowl, whisk together all of the dry pancake ingredients. Add the buttermilk, oil and eggs. Mix until smooth. Add the dried dill and mix well.
  2. Spray a large skillet with Heinen’s ghee cooking spray and place over medium heat.
  3. Pour ¼ of the pancake batter into the skillet and spread it out until it reaches the sides of the pan. Cook each side for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining pancake batter.
  4. Using a 1.5-inch (or smaller) round cookie cutter. Cut small circles out of the large pancakes. Set aside.
  5. Mix together the Greek yogurt, honey, scallions and lemon juice.
  6. Cut the smoked salmon into long strips. Roll the strips like you would crescent rolls, making sure each roll is small enough to fit on the pancakes.
  7. Spoon a small amount of the Greek yogurt onto each pancake. I prefer to place the dollop closer to the edge.
  8. Lean one roll of smoked salmon on the dollop of Greek yogurt.
  9. For a finishing touch, nestle a few scallion pieces in between the smoked salmon and yogurt.
  10. Sprinkle the microgreens on a serving platter, then place the mini pancakes on top. Drop a few cherry tomatoes around edges of the platter for added visual appeal.

Well hello there, I’m Lauren and I love food! Keeping meals simple, satisfying and accessible to all is the main purpose behind my cooking, but I always add a touch of creativity and uniqueness.I’m a family-taught cook and food is one of my greatest passion in life, but I suppose there is a little more to me than just food. I am a fur-mama to two wonderful rescue pups, Herbie and Nelly and our cat Grayson, who are all part of The Bite Size Pantry household. They love to be with me in the kitchen and they make the cleanup process a whole lot easier. Thanks to the wonderful internet world I’ve been able to pursue my dream of cooking. Sometimes it seems like a lot, but I just love food and I really love sharing that love with others who love it too.
