Yoghurt Snack Pancakes

Yoghurt Snack Pancakes

Roman decided he doesn't like yoghurt anymore, just as I bought a new tub, so I made up some little pancakes and snuck the yogurt in. These are a great snack for babies and easy to freeze and then whip out when needed.


Yoghurt Snack Pancakes
makes about 24*

1 cup (150g) plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar (optional - I didn't add this)
1 cup yoghurt (I used greek yoghurt, but anything will work)
1/4 cup water
1 egg
butter or oil for greasing pan


Mix flour, baking powder and sugar (if using) together in a bowl, making sure they are well combined. Make a well in the centre.

Put the yoghurt, water and egg into a jug and mix together with a fork. Stir into dry ingredients to make a very thick batter.

Heat a small amount of butter or oil in a frying pan. Place tablespoons of the mixture into the frying pan and cook until bubbles appear, turn over and cook until golden brown. Repeat with remaining mixture. The mixture also cooks well in a waffle iron.

Serve warm or cooled as is, or spread with peanut butter, hummus, cream cheese, mashed banana or any other topping your baby loves.

To freeze, layer pancakes between pieces of freezer paper. To reheat, microwave on high for about 30 seconds or until warmed through.


*I have also used this recipe to make 2 giant pancakes for a last minute brunch. I sprinkled the top of the pancakes with some frozen raspberries before flipping over in the pan.

  1. What a nice idea! Kind of like a yoghurt pikelet. I can imagine my family eating these both savory and sweet.

  6. Made them this morning with fresh blueberries. I also added a 1/4 cup of almond meal to the mixture and it gave it a nice nutty, sweet flavor and texture. The boys gobbled them up. THanks!

  7. These were a huge hit - my 11month old practically inhaled them, and I have a stash in the freezer ready for easy snacks! The best part was I didnt need to clean the floor after feeding him as everything made it into his mouth! Love it!

    1. That's great MelJ! I love them for on the go snacks too because they don't make any mess. I made a batch with mango flavoured yoghurt the other day and they were delish!
