Add a protein-packed twist to a breakfast classic with a top-rated recipe for Fluffy Greek Yogurt Pancakes.
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!
How to Make Pancakes from Scratch
Are you ready to ditch the store-bought pancake mix for good? This is the recipe that’s going to make that happen, and it couldn’t be easier or faster. All you need is two bowls, a whisk and a spatula to transform a few fridge and pantry staples into the lightest, fluffiest Greek yogurt pancakes.
How to Make Pancakes with Yogurt
Yogurt is a tangy, protein-packed addition to pancakes, lending both moisture and flavor to your stack. You can substitute in yogurt for pancake recipes that utilize buttermilk, however it’s not necessarily a 1:1 substitute since yogurt is thicker than buttermilk so you may need to adjust the quantity or thin your yogurt slightly with milk.
How to Freeze Pancakes
I am a huge fan of making a big batch of pancakes and freezing leftovers for a quick, homemade breakfast in minutes. The best way to freeze pancakes is to let them cool completely and then to wrap each of them individually in plastic wrap. Seal all of the wrapped pancakes in a plastic bag and freeze them.
When you’re ready for fluffy flapjacks, unwrap one or a dozen pancakes and microwave them for about 1 minute, or until they’re warmed throughout.

- 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.

Very tasty!! I add 1 1/2 Tabs of monk fruit sugar, and 1 Tab melted butter, caused I used fat free Greek yogurt. Fresh Blueberries. DELICIOUS!
I’m thrilled you enjoyed the recipe, Christine!
Turned out perfectly. I used golden wholemeal flour for all of it rather than mixing with white but otherwise followed the recipe. I’ll definitely be using this one again.
Awesome! I’m so thrilled you enjoyed the recipe, Kate!
These were awesome! Cut the baking powder in half, used monk fruit sweetener instead of sugar, used vanilla Greek yogurt and added blueberries.
So glad you enjoyed the pancakes, Regan!
I halved the 4 serving recipe as it was just me, my husband and 1 year old. Was the perfect amount for us with no wastage! I also swapped sugae for agave syrup which i mixed in with the wet ingredients. They were delicious with maple syrup and berries!
Excellent! I’m so thrilled you enjoyed the recipe, Shea!
I made these this morning and oh my! So good! I may try subbing some quick oats in place of the flour and adding a little cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, then add some diced and softened apple to the mix. Yum! This is a real good base for several types of pancakes, my favorite being blueberry.
I’m so happy you enjoyed the recipe, Judy! I have a recipe for Oatmeal Pancakes that you might be interested in: https://www.justataste.com/raspberry-oatmeal-pancakes-recipe/ :)
This recipe is absolutely delicious! Our 10-year-old granddaughter was groaning with joy while she was smiling around her fork. I make pancakes and waffles for them very often, and I’ve never had a reaction quite like this one.
I used fat free Greek yogurt, soy milk, and because the yogurt was fat free I subbed in some cream to make up for the lack of fat content. I probably added an additional ¼ cup of liquid because I used medium grind whole wheat flour and it absorbed quite a bit.
This is what I love to read, Jeri! So glad your granddaughter enjoyed the pancakes so much!
Any chance of adding weights as well as cups, we’re not all American.
Thanks so much for your feedback, Neil. I don’t provide metric conversions for my recipes, as I cannot guarantee they would be 100% accurate without being tested. However, you are welcome to use an online converter. :)
