Light, fluffy, and packed full of protein, these blueberry yogurt pancakes are a delicious and nutritious breakfast the whole family is sure to love. Enjoy them on their own or as part of a hearty weekend brunch for a filling meal that will keep you going all morning long.
Pancakes are one of my favorite weekend meals. I love waking up in the morning, making a cup of coffee, and then standing over a hot pan flipping fluffy pancakes for a delicious weekend brunch. Although pancakes are often considered an “unhealthy” option, that is truly not the case. As with all foods, it all comes down to the quality of the ingredients and quantity. In fact, when made from scratch, most pancake recipes are made with simple ingredients and whole foods, and a little drizzle of maple syrup once in a while never hurt anyone! Not to mention, the addition of yogurt or Greek yogurt to this pancake recipe helps to add an extra boost of protein and beneficial bacteria making it a fun and healthy way to start your day.
These blueberry yogurt pancakes are made with all-purpose flour, however, you could easily use whole-grain flour or gluten-free flour if needed, and can easily swap the milk for almond milk to make them dairy-free. Whip up these pancakes this weekend for a delicious and nutritious weekend brunch, or batch cook them and freeze them for a fun meal prep idea for healthy weekday breakfasts.
