Breakfast is an essential part of the day, and when it involves pancakes, like these Yogurt Pancakes, it’s a tasty part too.

A plateful of fluffy pancakes is a welcome sight early in the morning any day of the week. And when drizzled with syrup or topped with fresh fruit (or both) you have got a plate of goodness on your hands that would entice anyone to rise and shine to be the early bird. The early bird gets the pancakes, right? Well at least around here they do. Pancakes seem to disappear as quick as they make it off of the skillet. Crazy how that happens.

If you are a pancake fan, I think you will really enjoy this recipe. These delightful Yogurt Pancakes are made with a slight twist. The ingredients includes Greek yogurt and a bit of honey for a delicious pancake with just a hint of sweetness. Not too sweet. Just right. Plus, the Greek yogurt supplies a little bit of extra protein, which is always a good thing to start your day with. This Yogurt Pancakes recipe is pancake perfection! That is what it is.

Delicious Yogurt Pancakes are not only great for breakfast or brunch, but dessert too. Serve a nice stack topped with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream, then drizzle it with chocolate syrup, a sprinkling of toasted nuts or fruit for an over-the-top, yet supper easy dessert, or what we like to call bressert! Yay for bressert! What a perfect bressert to serve the next time you cook breakfast for dinner.

Breakfast is an essential part of the day, and when it involves pancakes, like these Yogurt Pancakes, it’s a tasty part too.

Whatever time of the day you choose to enjoy these pancakes, I do hope you enjoy them as much as we have.
