blueberry yogurt protein pancakes

by Heather

Pancakes are a beautiful thing.  Hunter (and I) can easily grab and gobble them up.  I love eating custard oatmeal, but it gets a little messy when I let Hunter grab it by the fistful.  That’s BLW for you… messy. 🙂


Pancakes are not messy though!  And are quite delicious.  These blueberry yogurt protein pancakes are delicate ones made with mostly blueberry chobani, oats and eggs.  Soft and thin pancakes.  If you’re looking for fluffy pancakes, these are not them.  As they cook the sugars in the blueberry begin to caramelize and give you the color that looks almost burnt, but they aren’t burnt!  Just make sure to use a well oil pan or non-stick griddle pan.  Since they are so delicate, any sticking will make them turn ugly quickly.

And we don’t want ugly pancakes.


Side note: is it weird to you that raspberries have little hairs growing out of them??  Kind of to me…

I made a double batch (which makes 8 pancakes) thinking that I would have enough left over for another breakfast during the week.  Wrong.  I ate 3.  Then Hunter ate 2.5 pancakes!  That boy LOVED them.  We’ve also been chowing down on fresh raspberries, which are currently my favorite berry.


Add a smear of your favorite nut butter on top (PB for me!), throw on some fresh raspberries and gobble these yummy cakes up!


Blueberry Yogurt Protein Pancakes
makes 4 pancakes


  • 6 oz blueberry Chobani (or any greek yogurt)
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda


  1. Pre-heat a greased pan to medium heat or griddle to 325 degrees.
  2. In a food processor (or blender) add all the ingredients.  Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour batter into 4 pancakes (they will spread).  Flip when the top bubbles.  Cook another 2-3 minutes on second side.

Tomorrow is another installment of Workout Wednesday!


The focus is on HIIT workouts.  If you have a favorite one, email it to me (heather.englund@comcast.net) and I will get it included in the post!

What is your favorite berry?  Are you a fluffy or thin pancake person?

I am already highly caffeinated and have about an hour before Hunter wakes.  Time to see what all I can do in that time!

How easy are those pancakes to make!? Can’t wait to try them 🙂 Jacob has been SO picky with food lately so hopefully these will get him out of his rut. By the way, next week, we are making the beef and broc recipe you posted the other day. I can’t wait to try it!

I love all berries, but I think I like blackberries first with strawberries in a close second! As for pancakes, I pretty much love ’em all!

I love/hate blackberries… they are sooooo delicious, but the insane amount of blackberry vines growing at my house makes me not like them! Grrrr, I will take the berries, with no vine please.

I’ve never tried using yogurt in pancakes, but it makes sense–protein-packed and delicious! This post is making me crave raspberries too.

Fit Mama May 12, 2013 - 3:43 pm

I feel the same way when I see posts from others with lots of berries… Makes me want them!

Giselle@myhealthyhappyhome May 7, 2013 - 9:08 pm

Mmmm… those look good! I like my pancakes thin but will still eat them fluffy 🙂 I agree on the raspberry hair, kind of weird for sure!

Fit Mama May 12, 2013 - 3:43 pm

I’ll eat them both too… pancakes are pretty awesome however thin or fluffy they are 🙂

These sound amazing! My favorite berry is definitely blueberry, followed by strawberry. And as far as thin vs. fluffy, the fluffier the better!!
