Strawberry Yogurt Pancakes
One of the highlights of this year's homeschool adventure is more time in the kitchen cooking with my twins. I'm always thinking up recipes that will be easy to make with kids and incorporate into our daily routine. That means, they have to be simple, delicious and kid friendly. Greek Yogurt Pancakes are a family favorite, in fact I have a recipe for Lemon Yogurt Pancakes here on the blog as well!
These pancakes are perfect for encouraging kids to cook, but also incredibly delicious. We serve ours with more Wallaby Organic® Greek Whole Milk Strawberry Yogurt and fresh strawberries on top! And when shopping for ingredients, be sure to look for Wallaby’s new packaging in the yogurt aisle.
Ingredients Needed for Strawberry Yogurt Pancakes
- Flour - I used all-purpose flour for this recipe but you can also use a mix of white whole wheat and all-purpose.
- Baking Powder & Baking Soda - these are your leavening agents.
- Salt - just a hint to bring out the sweetness of the strawberries and balance the flavors.
- Yogurt- Wallaby Organic® Greek Whole Milk Strawberry Yogurt which gives such great strawberry flavor to the pancakes.
- Milk - whole milk for extra creaminess.
- Vanilla- to make it delicious!
- Egg - just one to bind it all together.
- Butter - I prefer unsalted for this recipe as we are already adding salt.
- Strawberries - fresh strawberries chopped small. I don't recommend frozen as they will make your pancakes too soggy.
- Real Maple Syrup- for drizzling
Tips for the Fluffiest Homemade Pancakes
- Use Greek Yogurt. Something about the addition of yogurt not only adds tang and moisture to pancakes but also makes them incredibly fluffy! Not a surprise, yogurt is also a great addition to Banana Bread, and Muffins!
- Sift Dry Ingredients. This is super important in getting a fluffy texture to your pancakes. I sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt all together in the same sieve.
- Don't Overmix. It's tempting to beat together your wet and dry ingredients until the batter is totally smooth, don't do that! Gently mix with a fork and let it be lumpy.
- Heat. Cook pancakes at a medium to medium low heat to let them gently rise. I know, it's time consuming but so worth it.
Cooking with kids can be a lot of fun but also super stressful if you let it. Luckily this recipe is easy enough that things stay mostly under control. Depending on the age of your kids, this is a great opportunity to let them help you measure and scoop, pour, and whisk. Jackson loves being the egg cracker and I let him. Pancake batter is a hard thing to mess up.
Possible Variations for These Pancakes:
- Yogurt - you can change up the flavor of these pancakes by trying Wallaby Vanilla or even Blueberry Yogurt!
- Fruit - if strawberries aren't in season or if you want to try another flavor combination, feel free to omit or switch up the fruit. Blueberries, chopped apple, or even chocolate chips are all delicious substitutes.
- Spices - you can add any spices you like...cinnamon, nutmeg, even fresh lemon zest!
- Flour - if you are gluten free, you can absolutely substitute your favorite gluten free flour.
How to Make Strawberry Yogurt Pancakes
- Dry Ingredients- In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Wet Ingredients - In a separate bowl beat together vanilla, milk, egg, melted butter and yogurt.
- Combine - Pour wet ingredients into dry slowly while mixing with a fork. Do not over-mix, small lumps are ok!
- Strawberries - Fold in the chopped strawberries.
- Cook - Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat. Butter generously and add in ⅓ cup of batter at a time making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Cook until puffed and golden on the bottom before flipping over.
- Serve - serve with an additional dollop of Wallaby Organic Strawberry Yogurt.
