Yogurt Pancakes Recipe

I'm not sure why I wanted to use yogurt in pancakes this weekend but I really wanted pancakes.  We've been on a bit of a yogurt kick so the fridge is full.  I'm thinking about making my own but that's for another day.

I'm linking up again at Tuesdays with a Twist.  Join me!

Delicious Yogurt Pancakes
adapted from about.com


1 cup flour (organic, non-bleached)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup plain or vanilla yogurt 
(nonfat, low-fat, or whole milk all work here)
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. melted butter or oil (I used Coconut Oil)
Oil or spray oil for cooking


Heat a griddle or large frying pan over medium high heat. Meanwhile, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl; then whisk yogurt and eggs together; add yogurt and eggs to flour mixture and stir to combine. Stir in melted butter or oil.

Spray oil on hot griddle and spoon batter into even cakes – about 8 – and let cook until bubbles form on the surface of the cakes, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until golden brown on the other side, about another 2 minutes.

This recipe makes about 8 pancakes so it can easily be doubled or tripled.

Coconut oil has many health benefits and gives any recipe a nice flavor.  Check out some of the great deals at Tropical Traditions:

Virgin Coconut Oil, Gold Label, 2-jar pack - 1 quart each

Special Price! - Organic Coconut Flakes - 1-lb Bag

  8. These pancakes look amazing, I'll have to try your recipe! I make my own yogurt and have for years - there's a post on my blog that gives step-by-step instructions. (hopefully I'm allowed to post the link - http://bit.ly/ZmH6Cv ) Check it out - it's so easy, very little hands-on time and infinitely better than the purchased stuff!
