Most everyone likes pancakes and they are easy enough that you can make them without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. I’m hoping to convince Brad and the kids to make these Lemon Greek Yogurt Pancakes for me on Mother’s Day morning!

I’ve made a couple of batches of these pancakes in recent weeks, and we just can’t get enough of them. Between the bright lemon flavor and the thick and fluffy texture, these pancakes are sure to become a fast favorite of yours too!

Since we’re using a full cup of Greek yogurt in the batter for these pancakes, we don’t need any butter or oil in this recipe. The combo of Greek yogurt, milk, and lemon juice adds plenty of moisture and makes these Lemon Greek Yogurt Pancakes extra soft and tender!

I love to bake and cook with Greek yogurt and milk, especially when it’s real dairy marked with the REAL® Seal stamp. The REAL® Seal lets you know that you are buying a genuine dairy product made with real dairy from cows on U.S. dairy farms. My family eats a lot of dairy, so it’s nice to know that we’re enjoying quality dairy products. To see more delicious recipes featuring real dairy, visit the REAL® Seal Facebook and Pinterest pages.

I used Meyer lemons in my pancakes, but if you don’t have access to Meyer lemons you can use whatever type you have. Your pancakes will be delicious regardless! My grandmother has a Meyer lemon tree, and since she has an abundance of lemons she’s been sharing them with my mom and I. Meyer lemons are my favorite and their zest and juice make these pancakes extra special.

Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 16 4-inch pancakes
Ingredients
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • zest of 2 medium or 3 small lemons
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (I use 2% or full fat)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons honey (or pure maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For serving:
  • fresh strawberries
  • pure maple syrup
Directions
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and lemon zest. Set aside.
  2. In a liquid measuring cup, stir together the lemon juice and milk. Set aside while you prepare the rest of the wet ingredients.
  3. In a large bowl, combine Greek yogurt, eggs, honey, and vanilla. Whisk until well combined. Whisk in the milk-lemon juice mixture until smooth.
  4. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and, using a spoon, stir until barely combined. The batter will be very thick. Be very careful not to overmix. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  5. Heat nonstick pan or griddle over medium heat; spray with cooking spray.
  6. Scoop ¼ cup portions of batter onto the hot griddle. Cook on the first side for 2-3 minutes, until bubbles begin to form. Flip and cook on the second side, 2-3 minutes more. Serve with fresh berries and maple syrup.
