Healthy yogurt pancakes that are packed with protein, whole grains and healthy fats! Plus, they are insanely light and fluffy!



  • 2 cups (230g) white whole-wheat flour or regular whole-wheat flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 ¼ cups AE Dairy whole milk
  • 1 cup (242g) whole milk yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup olive oil + 2 teaspoons for cooking
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, honey or sugar


  • Butter
  • Additional yogurt
  • Pure maple syrup
  • Jam
  • Berries and/or fruit


  • Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 200ºF (93ºC). Set a wire rack inside a rimmed baking sheet; place in oven.
  • Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in medium bowl.
  • Whisk milk, yogurt, eggs, ¼ cup oil, and maple syrup together in second medium bowl.
  • Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and whisk until smooth.
  • Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Carefully wipe out oil using a paper towel but leave a thin film on bottom and sides of pan.
  • Spoon batter by 3 tablespoons or scant ¼-cup (or #24 scoop) into pan in 2 places. Barely spread each portion into 3 to 3½-inch round. Cook until edges are set, first side is golden brown, and bubbles on surface are just beginning to break, about 2 minutes. Using a thin, wide spatula, flip pancakes and continue to cook until second side is golden brown, 1–2 minutes more.
  • Serve pancakes immediately or transfer to wire rack in oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter, using remaining 1 teaspoon oil as necessary.


Whole-wheat flour: we prefer white whole-wheat flour here, but you can also use regular whole-wheat flour. The pancakes will be darker in color and toastier in flavor.
