No need to make a big stack of pancakes when only cooking for two

I love pancakes. Like I realllly love pancakes.

But I don’t always love leftover pancakes. Sure, they can still be tasty, but I just don’t find myself craving pancakes the next day.

So, when I’m making them for just Bry and I, I like to make only as much as we’ll actually eat that morning.

Healthy greek yogurt apple pancakes will keep you full

Pancakes on their own just don’t fill me up.

Give me an omelet and I’ll probably eat half, but give me a stack of pancakes and I’ll finish all of them and still be hungry by lunch time.

That is until I started making my own at home.

There are three keys to making pancakes that will keep you full until lunch:

  • Fiber
  • Protein
  • Healthy fats

These pancakes, like my chocolate chip ones, get a fiber boost from whole wheat flour and extra protein from Greek yogurt.

Then instead of maple syrup (. . .hang in there with me!) I spread peanut or almond butter on top. . .okay sometimes I do both maple syrup and nut butter.

There’s no waste with greek yogurt apple pancakes for 2

Since I could eat platefuls of pancakes, making a recipe that’s meant to feed 6 people is dangerous territory.

And it’s not that I’m concerned about how many calories I’m eating, it’s more that I’m eating a bunch of the same food rather than getting more variety in my diet. So, that’s where these pancakes come in.

This recipe is scaled down for two people and can be made into four smaller pancakes or two diner-sized one’s.

I personally prefer making two large pancakes as I’ve found that these actually cook best when you can pour the batter into a medium-sized skillet – they get super fluffy.

Plus, if you have two medium skillets, then you can make both pancakes at the same time – no one person getting to eat while the other keeps flipping pancakes.

If you do decide to make four smaller pancakes instead, be sure to only lightly grease the pan otherwise they won’t rise properly.

Play around with toppings

In the spirit of Fall, I topped these pancakes with stove-top roasted apples.

However, depending on the season feel free to switch it up. For example, strawberries in the spring, peaches in the summer, and blueberries in the winter.

For the apple topping:

  • 1 crisp apple diced
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 Tbsp water

For the pancakes:

  • ½ cup white whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup white all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ Tbsp sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup 2% fat Greek yogurt
  • Additional toppings of choice I recommend almond butter and maple syrup!


  • In a small bowl, toss together diced apple, cinnamon, water and oil. Pour into a small saucepan and heat over medium. Continue to cook while you make the pancakes. Note, you may need to reduce heat down to low depending on how hot your stove gets.
  • To make the pancakes, first combine flours, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  • Whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Slowly stir into flour mixture until just combined
  • (there will still be lumps). Add in yogurt and stir until just combined, again you want a few lumps
  • to remain.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat (or if you have a griddle, heat to ~325 degrees F).
  • Grease pan with a little butter or nonstick cooking spray. Once pan is warm, pour a generous ¼ cup of
  • batter onto the pan for each pancake. Let cook until bubbles form around the pancake, about 3-4 minutes, and then flip. Cook another 1-2 minutes or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Another option, since it’s just for two people, is to make two diner-sized pancakes. I like to do that by heating two medium-sized
  • skillets and evenly distributing the batter between the skillets. It will take longer to cook, but is an easy way to have both pancakes ready to eat at the same time!
  • Divide pancakes between two plates and top with cooked apples, maple syrup, and almond butter. Enjoy!
