Fluffy Greek Yogurt Pancakes
- 43 Comments
Calling all pancake enthusiasts! Get ready to snack on a tall stack-o-cakes that deliver not one, but two healthy benefits. These Fluffy Greek Yogurt Pancakes pack an added protein punch thanks to their all-star dairy addition and they’re made with a mix of white and whole wheat flours. Win and win!
We have my friend, New York Times Best-Selling Author and fellow food-loving entrepreneur Andie Mitchell to thank for this breakfast of champions. While the Greek yogurt pancakes may be hot off the griddle, Andie’s cookbook, Eating in the Middle: A Mostly Wholesome Cookbook (Clarkson Potter, 2016), is hot off the presses this week.
This is a book for all those looking to eat well, eat fresh and eat in the middle of all the chaos of diets and food restrictions and temptations and splurges. There’s a little bit of everything for everyone in this cookbook, from Chocolate Raspberry Breakfast Pudding and Baked Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls to Spicy Tofu Stir-Fry and Mini Lemon-Raspberry Cheesecakes.
Bottom line: Andie’s Fluffy Greek Yogurt Pancakes are a crowd-pleaser for the whole family. And you can keep that pancake party rockin’ with more flapjack recipes to make you flip, including Raspberry Oatmeal Pancakes, Banana Nut Pancakes and Light and Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes.

Fluffy Greek Yogurt Pancakes
- YIELD: 4 servings
- 1 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or any other variety of milk)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup plain 2% Greek yogurt
- Maple syrup, for serving
- Fruit, for serving
In a large bowl, whisk together the whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs and vanilla extract. Pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Add the yogurt and stir.
Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat and spray it well with nonstick cooking spray. Working in batches, spoon a quarter cup of the batter onto the pan for each pancake and cook just until bubbles form around the edges of each pancake, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook for 90 seconds more. Transfer the pancakes to a warm plate. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Serve the pancakes topped with maple syrup and fruit.
