Even though my college roommate, Erica, lives over 6 hours away in Cleveland, we still manage to get our boys together for play dates, share baby tips (her second boy is due just a couple of weeks after my little guy), discuss our latest home decorating projects, and exchange recipes (among other things). When she sent me a recipe for Greek yogurt pancakes, I knew that it would be a winner. After all, Erica described them as “fluffy” and “like regular pancakes.” That’s high praise for such a healthy recipe!


Here’s a pic of sweet Erica!

I love that these pancakes are full of good-for-us ingredients like fruit, calcium, protein, and whole grains. I like to serve mine with a hearty dose of syrup, which may make them a little less virtuous, but there’s still no guilt here!

Healthy Greek Yogurt Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

Since blueberries are in season at the moment, we’ve been coming home from the farmer’s market with at least a couple of pints each week. When I made these pancakes last weekend, I decided to add the fresh berries into my breakfast. Of course, if you’re making these in the middle of winter (or if your family doesn’t love blueberries or lemon) you can always leave them out. The pancakes will still be great!

**Note: You can substitute the lemon juice and the lemon zest in the pancakes with just 3-4 drops of Young Living Essential Oils Lemon Essential Oil.

    These pancakes look so good! I just came across your site, and your pinterest boards.

    This was a great recipe! I used Stonyfield BananaVanilla yogurt and it was still awesome! I think we should have tripled the recipe though. One batch wasn’t enough for four of us. Then we could have frozen some and not had to get all the ingredients out again. 🙂 This was EXCELLENT!

      Oh, you are so kind! Thanks for letting me know that you enjoyed it!

    These were very good, but I had a hard time flipping them. I think maybe my blueberries were too big. I used plain Greek yogurt and doubled the recipe. I used all white wheat flour and some lemon extract because I didn’t have lemon juice. I look forward to the leftovers tomorrow for breakfast!

      Thanks so much for the feedback, Stacy! I’m glad that you enjoyed them (even if they were hard to flip). 🙂
