What's your definition of the perfect pancake? If you're like most people, it probably includes the word "moist." Chobani figured out how to make their perfectly moist pancakes with the help of a little vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt. Paired with fresh berries and a drizzle of maple syrup they are, indeed, the perfect pancakes.

  • Cup vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt, such as Vanilla 0% Chobani Greek yogurt
  • Cup all-purpose flour
  • Teaspoon baking powder
  • Teaspoon baking soda
  • Teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Cup whole milk
  • Maple syrup and fresh berries, for serving


In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, yogurt, and milk.

Add the yogurt mixture to the flour mixture and use a wooden spoon to combine lightly.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Lightly coat with cooking spray and pour about ¼ cup of the  batter onto pan for each pancake. Cook until edges are set and bubbles appear on surface, about 2 minutes. Flip to brown other side.

Transfer to a large plate and repeat with the remaining batter. Serve with maple syrup and berries.

Pancake Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Pancake Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
