vanilla yogurt pancake recipeMy family loves to have breakfast for dinner. And if I am being perfectly honest, it is the only time of day that I really like to eat breakfast foods. I don’t like to eat when I first wake up and a heavy breakfast just doesn’t sit well with me. I made these for dinner one evening, but these I would eat these any time of day. These pancakes are light, fluffy, and were the best thing I have made as of late. My family loved them and have requested that they be my go-to pancake from now on.

I made a simple vanilla bean syrup to pour over these instead of maple syrup and got the idea from my friend Alison from This Homemade Life. Of course you could use maple syrup, but I love how this vanilla syrup goes with the vanilla yogurt in the pancakes. Coupled with sliced strawberries, these are perfect for Easter brunch. I buy my vanilla beans in bulk from Amazon, I use them in just about everything. If you are buying vanilla beans in your grocery store, be careful to buy beans that are soft and pliable, a dried out vanilla bean really is disappointing. If you have any leftover syrup, it is great to use to sweeten your coffee.

  1. Yum! These look great! I actually prefer breakfast much later in the day too – heavy pancakes in the morning make me feel sluggish, but these look like they would be a perfect late lunch on a Sunday!

  2. Vickie says:

    we love breakfast foods for dinner – in fact we’re having pancakes (although I suppose they’re more like crepes) tomorrow night :)

  9. I have been baking a lot with greek yogurt lately and I love how fluffy it makes things! That vanilla bean syrup sounds amazing as well.

  10. Those pancakes look so fluffy and tender, and I love the idea of a vanilla syrup to pour over top.

      Thank you Dana! I was surprised at how light and fluffy. These are pretty healthy too as far as a pancake goes. :)

  11. patsy says:

    I love that these are vanilla flavored pancakes… we don’t do big breakfasts during the week, but these just might have to hit our table on the weekend! Too yummy to pass up!

  12. These sound wonderful! It’s too bad that pancakes seem to be my nemesis. They’re difficult without a nonstick pan/griddle, so I usually do waffles instead.

    Breakfast for dinner was always my favorite growing up!

  13. Love how easy these look! Yum!

  14. Wow these pancakes look gorgeous! I really love vanilla so I am sure I would love these!!

  15. Becca from Cookie Jar Treats says:

    I, too, would much rather have pancakes, waffles, french toast, etc., for dinner. It makes it taste so much better eating it at night! :)

    These pancakes look beautiful :)
