How to Make Yogurt Pancakes
Yogurt pancakes are so easy to make. This is a brief overview of this simple recipe. For all of the measurements, see the recipe card at the bottom of the post.
- Whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, sugar, and a pinch of salt.
- Mix together the wet ingredients: yogurt, one egg, and some vanilla.
- Gently stir the dry ingredients into the wet. Be sure not to over mix.
- Preheat a skillet over low heat. You may need to play around a little to see where exactly on your stove works best for this recipe.
- Spray your cook surface with a little cooking spray. Add two tablespoons of batter for each pancake to the hot skillet.
- Cook for two minutes on the first side. Flip the pancake when you start to see a lot of bubbles. And about a minute on the second side. Serve and enjoy!
Greek Yogurt Pancakes
While I typically make these with regular yogurt, they can be made with greek yogurt as well. Greek yogurt tends to have more protein and less sugar than regard yogurt, so this is a great option to make these pancakes a bit more healthy.
This is a really fun recipe to get creative with. There are so many different flavors of yogurt out there that you could play around with. Here are just a few suggestions.
- Mixed Berry: Using mixed berry yogurt, take out the vanilla extract and add in a tiny bit of lemon juice (about a teaspoon) and lemon zest (about half a teaspoon).
- Chocolate Covered Cherry: Using cherry yogurt, add about 1/2 a cup of mini chocolate chips.
- Strawberry: Using strawberry yogurt, add in about 1/2 a cup of fresh chopped strawberries and about half a cup of mini chocolate chips.
- Pina Colada: Using pineapple flavored yogurt, replace the vanilla extract with 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract and mix in some toasted coconut (about 1/4 cup).
- Lemon: Using lemon flavored yogurt, mix in about 1/2 a cup of fresh blueberries.
Yes! I have had readers have good luck with Greek yogurt and I have tried them and loved them with multiple different flavors of yogurt.
Yes! This is a tested recipe that you can rely on. These have a more moist texture than traditional pancakes, and they really do only need 1/4 cup of flour.

Yes! Many of my readers have made these without the sugar and enjoyed them.
