Greek Yogurt Peanut Butter Pancakes

OMG! I was in pancake breakfast heaven after eating these. I am telling you, these pancakes are sooo amazingly delicious. Seriously, my mouth is watering right now as I type...  
They are light, fluffy and super peanut buttery.  A little peanut butter maple syrup on top and it is the perfect combination of salty and sweet. The batter for these pancakes is thicker than the usual, but the pancakes still manage to come out fluffy and have to make them!

Greek Yogurt Peanut Butter Pancakes
for pancakes
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons skim milk
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
for syrup
1 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons all natural peanut butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

In large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, and baking soda. In a separate medium bowl, beat Greek yogurt, eggs, honey, vanilla, and milk until smooth and well combined. Add wet ingredients to flour mixture and mix together. The batter will be very thick. You can add in a teaspoon or two of milk if you think it's too thick, stir until it is smooth. Next, gently fold in peanut butter chips.

Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Drop batter by 1/4 cup onto skillet. You may need to use a spoon to spread out the batter just a tiny bit, since the pancake batter will be thick and you’ll want them to cook thoroughly. Flip cakes and cook until golden brown, 2 minutes. Repeat with more cooking spray and remaining batter.
To make the syrup, place maple syrup, peanut butter, and vanilla in a saucepan over medium heat. Wait until mixture begins to simmer, and stir every few minutes. Remove from heat and drizzle over warm pancakes.


  1. I love Greek yogurt pancakes! You could even use oatmeal flour instead of whole wheat to add a tad more protein. The peanut butter syrup is a fantastic idea :)

  2. Thank you! I'll definitely have to try oatmeal flour next time!
