Greek Yogurt Pancakes

Greek yogurt pancakes: the holy grail of all pancake recipes. MUST TRY!

I’ve discovered the holy grail of pancake recipes.  And trust me, I would never call any recipe the holy grail of anything unless I absolutely, 100%, beyond any shadow of a doubt believed it to be true. And these, my friends, are the holy grail of pancakes: thick, fluffy, and unbelievably delicious.

Greek yogurt pancakes

Can you spot the secret ingredient?

Flour, an egg, baking soda, and a container of Greek yogurt are the only ingredients you’ll need to whip these up in 10 minutes flat.

That’s right— you only need 1 bowl, 4 ingredients, and 10 minutes to make the best  pancakes ever.

I’ve made these Greek yogurt pancakes about a bajillion times and they’re virtually foolproof.  I most often use 0% vanilla Chobani, but have also tried mango and strawberry banana flavored yogurt with fantastically delicious results as well.

Try these! You’ll love ‘em.

UPDATE 11/5/13:

I made a video demonstrating how to to make these Greek yogurt pancakes. Check it out below and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more recipes – I’m planning to film quite a few in the coming months.

Greek Yogurt Pancakes
Prep Time
Cook Time
Total Time
Serves: 1-2
  • 6 oz of your favorite Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • scant ½ cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  1. Open the yogurt container and stir the yogurt until it’s smooth and creamy. Crack an egg over the yogurt and stir to combine leaving. The resulting mixture should be pale yellow in color and have a few lumps here and there.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour and baking soda.
  3. Pour yogurt/egg mixture into the bowl with the flour and baking soda. Stir to combine. The batter will be extremely thick.
  4. Spoon the batter onto a sprayed griddle or pan heated to medium-high. I usually make four big pancakes, but you could also make 8 smaller ones.
  5. Flip the pancakes when they start to bubble a bit on the surface. Cook until golden brown on both sides and serve with butter, syrup, fruit, Nutella….anything! Enjoy!
For lower-calorie Greek yogurt pancakes, use nonfat yogurt and an egg white instead of the whole egg. Equally delicious and easy to prepare.

    These were amazing and quick! I used oat flour. I don’t think I blended baking soda properly as I could taste that ingredient with each bite. Next time I’ll use salt. :).

    Ty for the recipe!

    These are amazing!!! Since I only had plain Greek yogurt, I added frozen blueberries to the batter. Also added a pinch of salt and a bit of vanilla because I love vanilla! These turned out wonderful and were delicious with pure maple syrup over them!! I may never eat “regular” pancakes again!!!

  • Reply Z February 6, 2017 at 9:13 pm

    love these – healthy and wholesome. We add blueberries, choc chips and bananas – they’re not very sweet at a baseline when using plain greek yogurt, so a bit of chocolate adds the sweetness

    OMG!!! These are definitely amazing. Thank you for this recipe, I haven’t had pancakes in a while.
