Greek Yogurt Pancakes


I'm back at Weight Watchers! I LOVE the new freestyle plan,too.

At first I wondered how it could work, as there are about 200 "free" foods, including fruits, veggies, eggs,yogurt,chicken and fish. "Free" means you don't have to count them on your daily points. But it DOES work, and there are so many choices that I am never hungry.

In this recipe everything is "free" but for the flour and milk, so each pancake is 1 freestyle point, which is a pretty good deal as far as WW goes!

The real bonus here though is the taste. These are some of the best pancakes I have ever had! They are so fluffy!

I found the recipe floating around on a WW Facebook group. It's from FourSistersDish

Whether you are on WW or not, this is a great recipe!!!!



Greek Yogurt Pancakes

1 c. plain fat free Greek yogurt
1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 c. low fat milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Stir in the Greek yogurt. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, milk, and vanilla. Add to the flour mixture, and mix well. Drop onto griddle and fry until golden.( Makes 7 pancakes, 1 freestyle smart point each.)

what is the batter portion size?

Is each pancake a 1/4 cup of the batter? This looks yummy, I cannot wait to try it. Thanks for posting

It makes about 7 pancakes, but I am not sure how much batter for each one. I just guess..lol!

Made this recipe this morning...wanting something different and a bit more substantial than my usual egg breakfast. The ingredients seemed a bit weird to me but the comments were good and I had what was called for on hand. I ladled the batter onto hot griddle using a 1/4 cup measure...it made 8 fairly large pancakes. I had 4 today and cooked, cooled and froze the final 4 to have another day. I also made a fruit topping using some quite over-ripe nectarines and some soon to be sorry blueberries, a little sweetener, a little water...and after a quick boil to soften the fruit I thickened it with some corn starch. This topping on the pancakes made a very acceptable and special breakfast!

These are delicious! I make these sometimes 2 times a week. They are a family favorite.

Finally! Some WW-friendly pancakes that are fluffy and delicious and so filling! Mine made 8 big pancakes, and I had 4 with some 1-SP sugar free syrup which made a perfect Sunday night "brinner" for just 5 SP! These will definitely be my go-to pancakes. I even put your link on my WW group FB page to share. Thank you so much! YUMM

Wow! I was looking for a pancake that did NOT have banana in it. I want to use as “bread” with my OPT egg for a low point breakfast that is filling. This is yummilicious!! I did omit the vanilla only because I wasn’t using it as a true pancake. But, I’ll definitely be making these to use as pancakes in near future as hubs loves pancakes. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us! Mine came out same as Terry Jo above— 1/4 cup/pancake; total 8 pancakes

Can you use baking powder instead of baking soda?!

Could you use the cannon nonfat yogurt instead of Greek. I bought the regular instead of Greek it's still zero points

I’d like to try this recipe with almond milk, 0 points, and 1/4 cup of flour, so the total points for the whole recipe would be 3 points. I’ll let you know how it goes. If not so bad, I may omit the flour for those days I need 0 points!

I love pancakes and can't wait to try this. I just typed it into WW site to create the recipe to track but I substituted unsweetened vanilla almond milk (because that is what I use) and the points are 0. It will start calculating points at 3 so you can have 3 for 1 point. Thanks for sharing.

I just made them using self-rising flour and they tended to be a little bit salty / bitter. Next time I will use AP flour and the soda and salt the first time I did it that way they came out excellent. I do mine with 1/8 cup measure and it will make 28 cup little pancakes so I have six four three points it's probably a little less than that but I'm okay with that.
