Why We Love Greek Yogurt Pancakes

  1. High Protein: Greek yogurt boosts protein content, making these healthier and more filling.
  2. Better Taste: Preferred for their flavor over traditional pancakes.
  3. Diverse Toppings: Offers a variety of delicious topping choices.
  4. Fluffy Texture: Achieved through leavening agents and Greek yogurt.
  5. Moisture Balance: The yogurt in the batter ensures moist pancakes, preventing dryness.

  • Flour and Cornstarch: Provide structure and soft texture to your greek yogurt pancakes.
  • Sugar, Baking Powder, and Salt: Add sweetness, fluffiness, and enhance flavor.
  • Greek Yogurt, Milk, and Eggs: Contribute to moisture, richness, and stability.
  • Vanilla Extract and Optional Flavorings (Lemon Zest/Cinnamon): Offer aromatic and distinct taste profiles.
  • Unsalted Butter: Used for cooking, it enhances flavor and aids in browning.


Save drips by using a soup ladle or a 1/3 cup measure to pour out the pancake batter onto the skillet. Some people have good luck using a squirt bottle (like you’d use for ketchup), too.

Greek Yogurt Pancake Tips

  • Use Quality Greek Yogurt: Prefer full-fat Greek Gods® honey vanilla yogurt for best results.
  • Avoid Overmixing: Minimize stirring to keep pancakes light and fluffy.
  • Invest in a Griddle: Ideal for easier cooking and flipping.
  • Thick Pancakes: Achieve fluffiness with baking powder, baking soda, eggs, and by using yogurt for added thickness.

  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt full-fat vanilla honey flavor (I highly recommend Greek Gods)
  • 3/4 cup whole milk (plus 1-3 tablespoons)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest OR 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, optional
  • Unsalted butter for cooking


  • Stir together the flour, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the yogurt, milk, eggs, and vanilla. For a fun hint of flavor add in either lemon zest or cinnamon (but not both!) Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones, mixing only until JUST combined. Be careful to not overmix.
  • Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet or griddle over low to medium-low heat until it bubbles. Pour the pancake batter into the pan to make 3 or 4 pancakes. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbles appear on top and the underside is lightly browned. Flip the pancakes and then cook for another 1 to 2 minutes until browned. Wipe out the pan with a paper towel, add more butter to the pan, and continue cooking pancakes until all the batter is used. 
  • Serve with maple syrup or blueberry syrup (see post for recipe).
