Recipe: Healthy Vanilla Yogurt Pancakes

Healthy Vanilla Yogurt Pancakes - Low Fat, Gluten Free, No Added Sugar

Breakfasts in the Southern In-Law house are usually pretty simple. Bacon and Eggs for Jesse and Oatmeal, Overnight Oats, a Breakfast Bake or Cereal for me. Why? Because, well, I'm pretty lazy when it comes to making breakfast - all I want is food in my tummy without a fuss. 

But every so often, we have extra time on our hands and I have extra patience and we call it a pancake kinda day. 

These pancakes are one of our favourites and they were originally created simply to use up some vanilla flavoured yogurt we had in the fridge - but now, we buy vanilla yogurt just to make these pancakes!

They're soft and fluffy and full of vanillary (yes, I'm saying that's a word) goodness. So much goodness, in fact, that you don't really need to add any toppings.... but if you ask me, what good are pancakes without toppings? ;) 

Jesse likes his with a tiny bit of butter on top whilst I love adding fresh fruit!

But let me give you the recipe >> 
Healthy Vanilla Yogurt Pancakes - Low Fat, Gluten Free, No Added Sugar

Vanilla Yogurt Pancakes serves 2-3, easily multiplied 
 gluten free, low fat, no added sugar 

1/2 cup (60g) buckwheat flour (or plain flour
2/3 cup gluten free quick oats, ground into flour
1 cup (250g) low fat vanilla yogurt (or any flavoured yogurt you like!)
2 tbsp (30g) applesauce
1 egg 

Combine all of your ingredients in a medium mixing bowl, mixing until smooth. 
If you mixture is too thick or too dry, add in some water or milk until you get the desired consistency. 
Heat up a medium non-stick saucepan over a medium-low heat, spraying with some oil or greasing with a small amount of butter. 
Cook your pancakes until bubbles form on the surface and the top is set then flip and cook on the other side - repeating until all pancakes are cooked. 
Serve immediately! 

These pancakes also keep really well if frozen - just place them in a zip lock bag in the freezer, squeezing out all of the air. 

But tell me, what's your usual breakfast choice?
And what do you like on your pancakes?


  1. Thanks so much for this recipe! I was scouring the Internet for a blueberry smoothie recipe without bananas (don't have any!) and without yogurt (too much sugar!). This was really yummy. I love the hint of chocolate the cocoa gives it.

  2. Ooh these look amazing! I love the idea of using yogurt to lighten up pancakes! They look so fluffy!

  3. They are super fluffy and absolutely delish! xx
