I’m always looking for a new pancake twist and this was a fun one! Not only does the yogurt help boost the protein value of the pancakes but it creates a fun texture too. Not fluffy but not thick either. Just kind of, perfect!
Traditionally, most pancake recipes have a pretty low nutrient rating. They mostly contain processed carbohydrates, sugars and fluff. Unfortunately, this doesn’t exactly give your body a boost first thing in the morning.
Instead, I love to use almond flour as the base in pancakes (check out another favorite here) because it keeps the carb content of the breakfast on the lower side while giving a great boost of healthy fats. These pancakes are higher in calories than normal but they’re also full of healthy nutrients- so it’s a win.
And while I’m not a big dairy fiend I do enjoy the high protein content of greek yogurt! Between the yogurt and the egg whites these pancakes will keep you full until you’re next meal and provide your body with some necessary morning fuel.
Simple, different, tasty and healthy – a perfect combination for a new breakfast!
Ingredients For Light But Satisfying Yogurt Pancakes
- 1/2c almond flour (meal)
- 1.5 tbs coconut flour
- 1/3c plain greek yogurt
- 1/2tsp vanilla
- 1/4tsp baking powder
- 1/4c egg whites
Tips:These pancakes fluff up quite a bit, so don’t make them too big!

How To Make High Protein Yogurt Pancakes
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Whisk together the wet ingredients.
Pour wet mixture into the dry and mix well.
Heat a non stick pan just slightly over medium heat. Pour the batter into the pan and cover with a lid (yes, I used a circle making apparatus for these as my daughter loves it!)
Cook until starting to brown on the bottom (about seven minutes). Flip and recover until cooked through (about another three minutes).
Serve immediately topped with fruit, maple syrup or nut butter!
