Yogurt for Breakfast….but not really.

Nonfat Greek yogurt never tasted so good!!  My kids and my husband all loved these pancakes.  If you’re not a fan of yogurt, don’t worry, you would really never even know there is yogurt in them.  I found the recipe at www.everydaybelle.com and I added my own special touches to it.  If you love pancakes, but are looking for a healthier version, definitely give these a try!!  I doubled this recipe and got 8 large pancakes.  It would probably make 12-15 small pancakes.


  • 6 oz. Greek Yogurt (I used plain nonfat, but you could experiment with flavors too)
  • 1 egg
  • scant 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • juice of half of a lemon
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup of blueberries (frozen or fresh)


  1. Stir greek yogurt until it is smooth and creamy.  Add 1 egg and stir until combined.  Add vanilla, lemon zest and lemon juice.
  2. In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking soda and cinnamon.  Add to bowl with flour mixture and stir to combine.  The batter will be very thick.
  3. Spray griddle or skillet with nonstick cooking spray and spoon mixture onto hot griddle/skillet to your desired size.  Sprinkle each pancakes with a few blueberries.
  4. When the pancakes start to bubble on one side, they are ready to flip.
  5. Cook until both sides are golden brown.  Serve with maple syrup, honey, peanut butter or whichever topping you like!  Enjoy!
