Greek Yogurt Pancakes

5 Pancakes138 cals

We’re back with breakfast and we’re making some high protein Greek Yogurt Pancakes without protein powder! This healthy pancake recipe makes them fluffy, tastes just as good if not better, and is made with simple ingredients you might already have on hand!

Start it by adding into a mixing bowl 2 large whole eggs, 6 ounces of the highest protein Greek yogurt you can find, 2 ounces of a milk or milk substitute, 3/4 cup of all purpose flour (more substitutes below), 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1-2 tablespoons of your choice sweetener, and 1 teaspoon of baking powder.

The protein Greek yogurt I used had 28 grams of protein per 6 ounces.

You can change up the flavor with various flavored Greek yogurts like a chocolate Greek yogurt! Here are some of my favorite variations…

  • Chocolate Greek Yogurt + 2 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder for even more chocolate flavor
  • Banana Greek Yogurt + 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt + 2 Tablespoons Powdered Peanut Butter or Regular Nut Butter

If you don’t have or want a substitute for all purpose flour you can use one of the following….

Flour Pancake Substitutes

My favorite substitute? Turning 90 grams of rolled oats turned into oat flour. To do this, blend or process your rolled oats until they look like flour. Yes, it’s that easy!

Some other favorites?

  • Whole Wheat Flour
  • Pastry Flour
  • Brown Rice Flour
  • Buckwheat Flour
  • Gluten Free Flour
  • Combination of flours (Example: Oat Flour + Brown Rice)

I’m sure there are other substitutes that’ll work here as well, these are just the ones I’ve tried with this Greek yogurt pancakes recipe. If you happen to try one that works that isn’t listed here, drop it in the comments below so I can add it!

Continue by mixing everything together until your mix is smooth. It should be thick but still able to be easily poured. If it appears to be too thick you can add a little more milk in.

Protein Pancakes

If you want more protein in these Greek yogurt pancakes you can add in a scoop (30g) of protein powder but make sure it compliments the flavor Greek yogurt you’re using. Aside from the benefit of adding more protein to the recipe, you’ll be able to easily add more flavor (you may not need the sweetener either).

You likely don’t need to add in anything else with this however if it does thicken up your mix too much you can add in a little more Greek yogurt or milk, I’d say 1-2 ounces.

From here, take out a stovetop pan or griddle, turn your burner on medium heat, and coat it with some non-stick cooking spray. Allow that to heat up for a couple minutes.

Once your pan heats up, pour your mix in and cook each side of your pancake for around 2-3 minutes. You can make your pancakes however big or small as you want them.

Repeat until your Greek yogurt pancake mix is gone and they should turn out like this…

Tips For Greek Yogurt Pancakes

  1. Add whatever you want into your mix or inside your pancake as they’re cooking! Nuts, fruit, chocolate chips, and so on.
  2. Keep your extra pancakes in the fridge and reheat them in either the oven, your toaster, or the microwave for around :20 seconds.
  3. They freeze great if you decide to meal prep them for the week!

    Tried this recipe for the first time a few weeks ago. My son loves them. He can have pancakes daily, and I don’t feel bad about it.

    I made these today and holy **** were they delicious; used oat flour and added 30g of Lily’s dark Choc chips.

    Gonna try them again tomorrow and do half oat flour and half all purpose flour to see what the result is.

    I could eat these everyday.
