Protein Pancakes Recipe with Eggs and Greek Yogurt

Hello everyone!  I hope the dads had a fabulous Father’s Day yesterday!

Book Update:  Our book club is reading “An Uncomplicated Life” by Paul Daugherty.  It is a biography of his daughter who was born with Down’s Syndrome and her life up through college.  I would give it 4 out of 5 stars.  The author is a very popular sports writer for a Cincinnati newspaper.  The parents threw away the documents on what to expect Down’s syndrome children to look like and do.  Jillian, the daughter, is a very vivacious, hard-working young woman that loves her life.

Question:  Anyone else notice that many times Amazon will have raving reviews and Goodreads has more critical reviews?  This book is a good example.  Amazon shows about 5/5 stars.  But Goodreads is showing 4/5 stars.  I agree with that, but I see that a lot though.  Amazon will have much better reviews than Goodreads.  I don’t know why.  Other than Goodreads readers are perhaps overall more critical of their books.  That’s my theory anyway.


These are super pancakes!  Chock full of 6 whole eggs, 2 cups of Greek yogurt, oats and whole wheat flour, they are sure to keep you full all morning long.

Back in the day, Kid 2 and I enjoyed these fabulous homemade Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes.  However, Kid 1 won’t have anything of it.  He hates eggs!  Now he’ll eat things with eggs.  But, if it tastes “eggy” like the Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes or Cherry Clafoutis, then he won’t eat them.  Sigh.

Now don’t get me wrong.  He serves himself plain Greek yogurt almost every morning.  But that still left me trying to figure out how to make a healthier pancake with more eggs and more whole grains.  This hits the mark!  Now, it isn’t paleo.  We don’t really follow the Paleo anything.  What I do like about that diet is that it started a whole host of yummy and nutritious cookbooks with more healthy ideas!

If you substitute the whole wheat flour for coconut flour, the oats with almond meal and the milk with almond milk.  We may have a paleo version on our hands.

Here is a photo of my blender.  This is super easy to add and blend without getting much dirty in the kitchen.  If your blender is smaller, simply cut the recipe in half.

Do not try using baking powder.  It didn’t work.  TRUST ME.  Just stick with the baking soda in this recipe.

Protein Pancakes Recipe with Eggs and Greek Yogurt


Power Pancakes
Serves: 20 pancakes
  • 1 cup milk or almond milk
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour or whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  1. Add everything into a large blender and blend until smooth! If you do not have a blender that will hold all of this, feel free to cut the recipe in half. It works just as well!
  2. Heat your griddle to 375 degrees. Or, heat your skillet to medium heat. Coat with a pat of butter or oil if you do not have non-stick.
  3. Pour the batter from the blender pitcher onto the griddle. It is VERY THIN!!! Pour carefully! Just warning you.
  4. Let cook until tiny bubbles show: about 2 minutes. Flip and cook another 2 minutes or golden brown. Serve warm.
  5. Freeze any leftovers into a freezer bag or freezer safe container. Reheat in the microwave for yummy pancakes super fast the next morning!
