    I had some leftover Greek Yogurt from a flatbread recipe, so I searched online for something to make with it. I came across this recipe and read several reviews, good and bad. I decided to go ahead, and am SO glad that I did. The batter was initially like dough and the first pancake didn't have enough 'pancake flavor'. So, after that, I added a teaspoon of vanilla and a little water and the rest of them were perfect! They were very fluffy and really filling. My husband makes THE best pancakes, but these are almost as good as his. He may tweak these and dominate the Pancake Universe, but until then, these get 4 stars!

    These were really yummy and a great way to incorporate yogurt. I added some more water and salt as well. My great-grandma always said to add salt to something sweet to make it taste the best!

    Delicious pancakes. I add a bit more water to thin the batter so it spreads better on the griddle. I have used whole wheat flour in place of some of the white flour and I have added blueberries or grated apple to the batter. I have made these pancakes many times. They also freeze well.

    These are literally the BEST pancakes I have ever tasted! I used honey flavored Greek Gods yogurt. Hardly had to use any syrup. Amazing flavor and fluffiness. Will definitely never make box again! Thank you.

    Great pancake yogurt recipe?? but the trick to making the batter like a pancake batter with the yogurt added is to add more water until your batter is like your everyday pancake batter and add a teaspoon of vegetable oil and use self raising flour instead of all purpose flour and leave out the baking powder and baking soda and cook them just like you would when cooking pancakes out of the box???? here are some pictures of my pancake yogurt recipe

    Love this recipe! I use fage greek yogurt and add more water then I usually make waffles. We like them with blueberries.

    The only change I made to the recipe was to use Greek yogurt rather than regular yogurt for the added protein boost, and a little splash of vanilla. I did some with mini chocolate chips, some with blueberries, and some plain that we will enjoy with some strawberry butter or blueberry syrup. I loved these because they are simple to make, a breeze to customize, store well, and reheat quickly.

    Horrendous! These pancakes are TERRIBLE! It bewilders me that people actually gave it 5 stars. If there was an option to rate it 0, I WOULD. Batter did not turn out smooth, more like cookie dough. It was EXTREMELY dense and impossible to flip without it constantly sticking to the spatula! I didn’t even cook it all the way because of the issue. Once I got the outside layer golden brown, I laid it on a plate. I only ate the cooked parts and IT WAS GROSS! Very rubbery, barely any flavor, and just disappointing in general. Honestly, it’s not worth your time or ingredients. So surprised that people enjoy this crap called a, “yogurt pancake.” What a disgusting recipe!
