Greek Yogurt Pancakes

Fluffy, slightly sweet, and packing a protein punch, these pancakes are sure to please everyone!

Greek yogurt is my bff…. well maybe not quite, but almost! Seriously, though, as a mom, greek yogurt is my secret weapon to sneak some protein into almost everything. Pnacakes, waffles, muffins, macaroni and cheese, you name it, I probably made it with greek yogurt!

When greek yogurt started to be a big thing, I was just starting out as a mom and learning more in the kitchen and I made greek yogurt pancakes for my baby boy(now almost 4), but they were heavy and well, not pancake-like. These pancakes are anything but! Light and fluffy, you sincerely cannot even tell that there is greek yogurt in these bad boys, and my boys gobble them up!

My favorite additions are mini chocolate chips or cinnamon & vanilla, but for birthdays and holidays, we get some sprinkles in there too!

The original recipe comes from Creme de la Crumb.

Preheat pan or griddle to medium-low or 325°F.

In a medium bowl, you will whisk together all of the wet ingredients, and in a smaller bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined (mixture will be lumpy).

Once the wet and dry ingredients are combined, stir in any add-ins you would like.

Pour 1/4 cup batter onto hot pan or griddle and allow to cook until edges look “dry” and centers are bubbly. Flip pancakes and cook for another minute or two, until center bounces back if you lightly tap it.

Transfer pancakes to tray or rack and repeat with remaining batter.

Serve with syrup, jam or glaze.
