Over the years, I’ve made Greek yogurt pancakes more times than I can count

They’ve become a go-to meal; quick to make, with ingredients we always have on hand; essentially a blank canvas with endless ways to make them feel different

Not being able to land on a favorite, I’ll share the two recipes I float between

Essentially they’re the same ..

Flour, Greek yogurt, baking soda, and egg.  The texture of the result distinguishing one from the other

Whole Wheat Greek Yogurt Pancakes - Whole Wheat Greek Yogurt Pancakes are prefect in so many ways .. a healthy, clean slate for any flavor combination

The first is a thick batter, that cooks up surprisingly light and fluffy

The second spread flatter, and are best when made into silver-dollars, which are lots of fun to stack.

When I first read the recipes, I thought: that can’t be right, there’s so little flour.  But indeed they’re just fine, and slightly tart due to the greek yogurt (much like a buttermilk pancake)

Protein powder?

Yep, I’ve tried, and it works well in either recipe; substituting anywhere from halt to all of the total flour content called for.  Although, I’ve found that it does affect their fluffiness

Also, you’ll want to check your batter; when I add protein powder, I’ll often need to up the recipe’s overall liquid content just a bit.  If it seems too thick, add an extra egg white, a tablespoon or two of greek yogurt, or even a splash of almond milk

Any complimenting flavor combos work well here: fruit added during or after the cooking process, your favorite topping at the ready

To make a complete meal, have your pancakes with a small side of protein

I’d love to know the different ways you make them yours



ps:   Griddle temp – You’ll want to turn the heat down on your griddle.  I like to cook pancakes around 325, but these required something between 275 – 300

(** This recipe was originally published November 14, 2013, and ever since it’s been the most popular recipe on the site.  I thought it would be a fun one to re-publish in light of National Pancake Day)

    Looking forward to trying these. One question, though: both recipes say “Serves 4” but the nutritional info says one serving is “half the recipe”. Which is it?

      Good catch .. I’ve updated the nutritional info. The recipe serves 2.

    I was looking for a father’s day brunch idea and was so glad I stumbled across this recipe. I followed this recipe exactly except that I added chia seeds, fresh blueberries, lemon zest and vanilla. The batter looked a little dry- maybe because of the seeds- so I also added just a little coconut milk. Cooked everything in coconut oil, then topped with fresh whipped cream and berries. Delicious!

    OMG I have been looking for a decent protein pancake that didn’t make me gag. I can’t stand the oats and egg whites ones. I’ve tried so many of those recipes with no success. So when I came across your recipes I made method 1 with what I had around the house. I only had a small container of Blueberry greek yogurt and white flour. I did half vanilla protein powder/half regular flour. I am so impressed with how they came out. I don’t eat syrup and these were great without any topping. This gives me options for breakfast. THANK YOU!!

    I like your recipy. However, in Denmark the newest “health fad” in protein breakfast is Skyr. This has its orihen in Iveland. It is a yougurt-like milk product with only 0.2% fat and 13% protein. It works very well with this recipy.

      Hi Delea

      I haven’t tried refrigerating the batter for longer than a half hour or so.

      I’ve had really good luck with them after a couple of days in the fridge .. and they also freeze well. (Though they’re fluffiest hot off the griddle)

      I hope you give them a try .. they’re wonderful

    I absolutely LOOOOOOVE pancakes! I always have to have butter and syrup on mine. My husband, on the other hand, never puts butter on his and I just can’t wrap my mind around that! Sometimes, if I’m in the mood, I’ll sprinkle some chopped walnuts or pecans in the batter on the griddle for a little crunch and texture. SO GOOD!

    Made these with vanilla Greek yogurt and used AP white flour since my kids are tough critics and accustomed to generic pancake mix. They loved them even more than the standard mix pancakes! I plan to gradually add the whole wheat pastry flour each time I make them to eventually make the transition to the original recipe. Thank you for sharing–I feel less guilty feeding my kids pancakes on the weekends!

    First-time commenter here, but I’m pretty sure pancakes was one of the first things I’ve learned cooking-wise as a kid, so I too, am a pancake snob. You just can’t beat home ade from scratch. Ever. Sometimes, ok, very rarely, I’ll order pancakes from a restaurant- only to end up disappointed that they’re of the ‘sweat shop’ mix variety.
    Next time I make some, I’m going to stack them with a thin layer of dulce de leche in the middle.
    Absolutely love your blog, it’s addictive!

      You bet .. regular yogurt will work great. Keep an eye on your batter though .. you may have to up the flour by a Tbsp or two if it seems to runny.

    When I was growing up, my grandma used to notify everyone the evening before she planned a big pancake breakfast, so we could stop by on the way to school. It was always a cause for excitement; my cousins and I got hopped up on pancakes with cane syrup and the adults enjoyed their coffee and conversation knowing we’d detox at school. (It was probably at one of these breakfasts that my grandma taught me when to flip the pancakes)

    And now I need blueberry pancakes for dinner. I’d be awfully upset if I didn’t have all the blueberries in blueberryville in my fridge right now.

    This post brings back so many memories. My family has spent our summers in Colorado mountains, for as long as I can remember. I would wake up to the smells of ground up coffee beans and my dad’s famous pancakes. I felt like the luckiest girl alive.

    Now I’m the one most often doing the cooking and I love carrying on this tradition. At home and on vacation. I can’t think of anything I enjoy more than serving friends and families a little bit of love every morning.

    Confession #1: On a camping trip I made the kind of pancakes where you add water, shake, and pour.
    Confession #2: It wasn’t until I moved out on my own that I knew what a true, homemade pancake was. See, I thought everyone used Bisq…the mix that shall not be named. I haven’t gone back since.

    I’m going to save this recipe for my mom’s birthday coming up. The fruit on top looks scrumptious.

    There’s a modified version of Marion Cunningham’s cottage cheese lemon pancakes in the NYT Jewish Cookbook that are so good and so easy. I confess I’m sort of the opposite of you when it comes to making breakfast; there’s something about the sleepy fuzzy-edged feel that hour that makes it seem an insurmountable feat (the weekends I do make us something more elaborate than cereal or toast, it’s brunch really because I don’t get started ’til 11 or later). But these pancakes are so easy I can whip them up immediately. And they’re so, so good. They’ve got lemon zest and cottage cheese and not much else in them. They come out light and airy and tangy and they’re my favorite easy breakfast thing now except for dutch babies. xo

    At our house, I swear by Ruth Reichl’s pancake recipe in the Gourmet Cookbook. Have you tried it? The recipe calls for a stick of melted butter and it makes the pancakes super rich. That said, I like the idea of blueberry and Greek yogurt and will have to try this recipe next time I have a hankering for pancakes.

  • Reply Candice September 29, 2015 at 10:08 pm

    I like to sprinkle the blueberries on my just-poured pancakes, and then use a small spoon to spread the top of each blueberry with a smidgen of batter. This way, they won’t bubble up when they hit the heat, but there remains a pleasing, well-distributed amount of berries, sans purple batter.

    Pancakes are the best. Sometimes we whip up a batch for dinner or supper or heck even dessert cause mmmmm pancakes. We like ours verrrrrrry hearty. With rolled oats, ground flax and pecans in them. They make the sort of pancake that fills you up with just one…but of course we eat two (or three!)
    I am craving blueberries now though after looking at your pics, I can’t remember the last time I had blueberries in my pancakes.

    Pancakes are a battle in my house. I love mine fluffy, hubby likes them flat and slightly burnt (in fact, I met him while I was waitressing my way through grad school. He used to come into the cafe I worked at and would order four flat pancakes instead our traditionally three fluffy pancakes). I’ll save this recipe for when I have a night to myself (because pancakes taste better at dinner).

    My husband makes the best pancakes! He uses Martha Stewart’s buttermilk recipe. I can’t wait to have him try these (sigh, it’s good to be a taste-tester!) He makes them at least every Saturday (and often on Sunday too–I usually can’t do it–too often and they aren’t as special!) He slathers them with peanut butter and syrup (which is pretty good, actually…lately I’ve been smitten with the cookie butter from Trader Joes :D)

    One of the best tips he has (beside whipping the eggs separately) is that once you get the hang of it, you may need to add more liquid or flour to make sure the batter is the right consistency (it can depend on the humidity). That way they always turn out light and fluffy.

    We just started making all of our own jam so we skip the traditional maple syrup and butter and spread jam on pancakes. Last Saturday morning was Cherry Almond jam with buttermilk pancakes and this weekend we’re going for Strawberry Lime jam with your pancakes. I may even attempt to make blintzes on Sunday morning for a bunch of thirteen-year-olds, depending on how late they keep me up at the slumber party Saturday night!

    These look amazing! My family prides themselves on a pancake recipe passed down through generations and originating in the Adirondacks – a place where pancakes are a religion!

    Our technique includes the most critical hint for fluffy pancakes, and that is to NOT stir the batter after mixing. It is hard to resist giving the waiting bowl a quick stir, and you’ll need to defend the batter from helpful hands. xo

I got pretty good at it, but the first time was terrifying. I don’t make them often anymore. But my recipe, never written – it was all taught by texture

    Always good to take the time to make pancakes. Sort of like doing exercise seems daunting at first but after you get started it’s easier and you’re happy you did! xx

    Yay! Pancakes are the best! My best tip for making them is to keep the temp low because, in this case, patience sure pays off, even if it’s SO hard not to want to crank them out quick!

    Never thought that making this kind of pancake is easy! Yep, we normally use pancake box mixes and just add syrup or condensed milk! Will definitely try this!

    This is such a unique pancake recipe. I haven’t tried adding Greek yogurt to my batter before, but you can bet I’m going to this weekend when I give them a try. Thank-you (as always) for another great recipe! x

    I tried this recipe on Saturday morning and they were so amazing. You completely undersold the recipe! The next day they still tasted amazing. This is now my pancake recipe, end of discussion. xx

    Pancakes definitely make my family happy. We have them for brinner about once a week and my kids always get super excited when I tell them we are having pancakes for dinner.

    I’ve always made traditional pancakes and I love the simplicity of these pancakes. The Greek yogurt sounds like a wonderful addition.

  • Reply Candy April 2, 2018 at 6:42 am

    We do enjoy a good pancake on Saturday mornings. We like to enjoy different pancake recipes and this looks like one we would try. Especially since we grow our own wheat and grind it fresh.

    I’d give these a try for sure! I don’t think I’ve ever tried Greek Yogurt before. I always see it in the stores, but always opt for the one I know I’ll like. These look fabulous, and I love the fruit on top!

    Pancakes for lunch or dinner sound pretty good. I love that the versatility of a great pancake. These sound really delicious.

    Oh wow, these look and sound amazing! They certainly make my plain old looking pancakes look rather boring. I think I need to copy your idea

    These are wonderful! Sitting here in northern England, it’s rather wet and drizzly outside, and I thought the best antidote to a non-functioning hot water boiler would be a cheery breakfast. Even better than traditional pancakes…had mine with extra Greek yogurt on top, pineapple, and chopped mixed nuts. xx

    You better believe I’m making these for mama when she gets home with baby from hospital. It’s true, so hard to find a great protein pancake. Can’t wait

    Pancakes are one of the few breakfast meals that I seldom make because my kids are not fond of them. My husband, however, would love a whole wheat greek yogurt pancake as he loves any kind of pancakes.

    I LOVE fluffy pancakes but I can never get them to the right texture! Have been looking for a healthier recipe I can use with protein powder, this is perfect. And with lots of berries

  • Reply Lindsey April 3, 2018 at 8:18 am

    Alison, we are totally on the same wave length of late. Yesterday Leanora and I had pancakes, whilst I wen t down the more traditional route, my greedy guts toddler obviously had chocolate and sprinkles. But I think I’ll give this wheat version a try, much more healthier.

  • Reply Debra Hawkins April 4, 2018 at 12:00 am

    I love the idea of putting greek yogurt in pancakes! I am always trying to get more protein in my kids!

    You sucked me in with the berries – mmmmh – fresh berries on some warm pastry: delicious!
    I understand that you were irritated since there is so little flour – I made some thin pancakes to wrap cream cheese and salmon – and there was hardly any flour – but the result convinced me.

  • Reply David Allen Elliott April 4, 2018 at 11:55 pm

    Ah pancakes. If I was to have some kind of a comfort food it would probably be pancakes. Maybe it’s because it was something my mother couldn’t destroy even while I was a child. Shed’ burn almost anything but with pancakes it might have made them slightly crispier, which is fine by me. And then I could always add copious amounts of syrup to cover it up. This sounds like a great recipe. Looking forward to trying it out.

    YUM! The best pancakes I ever had were actually crepes, but I was staying with a friend in Austria who called them pancakes because her English teacher was French and yada yada yada. We put apricot jam on them, rolled ’em up, and stuffed ourselves until I thought I’d burst from all that deliciousness 🙂 (Maybe you could do a post about the best crepes you’ll ever eat!)

  • Reply Tanvi Rastogi April 5, 2018 at 2:42 pm

    This sounds like a PERFECT recipe to try … especially since I am watching I eat and want to include foods high in protein but still delicious. Will give it a try over the weekend 🙂

  • Reply Natalia April 8, 2018 at 2:30 pm

    My kids could actually live on pancakes! Believe it or not I’ve never tried the greek yogurt version. I usually do “blinis” instead, but my children prefer the American style pancakes 😉

    One of the things I love about your blog is that so many of the recipes are down to earth enough that I can think about making them on weeknight. I eat dinner (and breakfast) from your blog more than any other and this will probably be on my table within the week: it sounds fabulous.

    Thanks for the recipe. I just made them because I had some whomemeal flour and some greek yoghurt that I wanted to use. They are very light and fluffy. I put bits of pear in some of them – nice! The others I had rolled up with apricot jam. thanks again!
