Protein-packed pancakes are filled with plump blueberries, vanilla Greek yogurt and just the right amount of flavor for an awesome breakfast. Plus, they are topped with a sweet blueberry sauce.

Light, fluffy, and bursting with fresh blueberries, these pancakes are the ultimate treat for when you want to indulge in a healthier, filling breakfast.
And let’s not forget about that blueberry sauce! It’s filled with blueberries and a touch of sweetness so that you can drizzle this over these decadent pancakes and feel like you’re in blueberry pancake heaven. This sauce is so good that I drizzled it over ice cream, added it to yogurt, and even ate a spoonful (or three) with just my trusty ‘ole spoon.
And I’m happy to report that these Blueberry Greek Yogurt Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce are the tastiest, lightest pancake that I’ve eaten. The vanilla Greek yogurt adds in a punch of protein, while making these pancakes extra fluffy. After all, that’s a requirement in my book! And the blueberry sauce is the perfect topping for the dish!
And like most of my dishes, these pancakes are a breeze to whip up! I made a stack of these pancakes for the hubster and I in less than 20 minutes. And the blueberry sauce can be made while you’re flipping the pancakes, so it won’t take away time from devouring these babies.
