I think you are going to love these bite size Pancake Pops, made from scratch using creamy greek yogurt. They are cooked on a lollipop stick, and are so fun to dip! Let me show you how easy they are to make.
Start by melting your butter, preheating your electric non-stick griddle, and having your lollipop sticks handy. I use the Wilton six inch lollipop sticks purchased from Michaels.
Now, let’s make the pancake batter. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt to a large bowl and whisk together. Then add non-fat plain greek yogurt, melted and cooled butter, egg, and milk. Stir just until combined. You will have a very thick and creamy pancake batter.
Scoop out a heaping teaspoon of pancake batter.
Drop the pancake batter onto the hot griddle. Give the pancake about a minute to set up on the griddle side so the lollipop stick won’t go all the way through, then place the lollipop stick in the batter just shy of the top of the pancake. Press stick down and use your spoon to smooth out the valley in the batter, that way you will have pancakes that look perfect on both sides!
Space the rest of the pancake pops out, so you have room to add the sticks.
They cook really quickly since they are so small. About 4-5 minutes on the first side, and around 3 minutes on the second side. Once the edges start to dry out, they are ready to turn.
Oh my, I think this is the cutest batch of pancakes I’ve ever made!
To flip the pancake pops use a small spatula to lift them up a bit, then you can use the lollipop stick to give them a quick turn. The lollipop stick was warm, but it wasn’t too hot to handle. Just be careful not to touch the griddle!
A hot and delicious perfectly cooked pancake pop.
Pile them up on a platter with fresh blueberries and maple syrup, and enjoy!
They are delicious fresh off the griddle, or at room temperature dipped in hot maple syrup.
This batch cooled off while I was taking pictures, so I popped them in the microwave for thirty seconds and they were perfectly hot and fluffy!

Makes about 20 bite size pancakes
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt
1/2 cup of fat-free plain greek yogurt
1-2 tablespoons of milk, depending on the thickness of the yogurt you use
2 tablespoons of melted and cooled butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add greek yogurt, butter, and lightly beaten egg to the same bowl. Add enough milk to make batter stir-able, 1-2 tablespoons depending on the thickness of the yogurt.
Pancake pops are perfect for a brunch, a shower, or just a fun breakfast for your family. They are really sturdy, so you can even display them standing up, using a piece of craft foam as a base. Kids of all ages will love them!

Eek! These are so stinkin’ adorable and I can’t wait to make them. Finally, a pancake I think I’ll love!
Melissa, thanks for this fab idea. I’ve made slightly bigger ones with lollipop sticks today. See a pic here: https://foodloveandshelter.wordpress.com/2013/01/19/food-mini-pancakes-on-a-stick/ Of course did I pay reference to your blog.
SO adorable! Perfect for kids parties or sleepovers. I pinned this.
Can i substitute greek yogurt with plain yogurt?
Greek yogurt is much thicker than regular yogurt. A better substitution might be sour cream if you don’t have access to greek yogurt:0)
I’m so glad you have your website on the photos. I saw these on pinterest but the photo was uploaded by user. Now I’ll like it from your website!
I remember having these in a Thai theme park. They made them a little bigger and drew cartoon faces with them in a different coloured batter lol Thanks for the recipe! This is awesome.
I am LOVING this idea!! They turned out great! And as always your pictures are fantastic girl! Pinned!
My kids would LOVE these! 🙂
Bonnie @ Uncommon
Oh how fun are these! What a clever idea! Thaks for the recipe!
Such an adorable idea!! My boys (big and small) will love it!
So fun Melissa! I’ll definitely have to try this with the kiddos! Pinned and shared on Facebook!
loove your blog,thanks for sharing all your ideas and recipes. I tried this pancake pops, and i blew it. How can u make the lolipop stick not melted? mine is melting,huhuu..
Hmmm, were you using the Wilton sticks? Those are made of paper, and they have always worked for me. I buy them at Michael’s. They are the same sticks used for cake pops.
Where do you get blank lollipop sticks? Or do you recycle used ones?
You can get them at a lot of stores. Target and Michael’s for sure. They are the same sticks you use for cake pops. Thanks for asking!
I LOVE this idea! I can’t believe I’ve just come across it now. It is so simple, and so creative!
have you ever made these and frozen them? I would love to try these for a family gathering but would take all day.
These are cute, but it seems like way too much work and money (for the sticks) to get a mere couple bites of pancake. Why not just make little pancakes? Why buy the sticks, use them to hold a single bite of pancake, and then throw them out?
Great idea, thank you!
came from PB’s facebook page! Can the sticks stand without the pancakes falling off? Or do they have to lay flat
Thanks for letting me know!
Yes, they stand up on the stick:0)
This is such an awesome site! I wish I had found this recipe sooner!
I’m Kelly Smith, a writer for Spoon University, and I’m writing a story about National Pancake Day. If it’s okay with you, I’d love to use this photo and link in my article and of course give you proper photo credit.
If you could let me know as soon as possible, that would be great.
Thanks so much ahead of time.
That would be great. Thank you!
Thanks for sharing did zem for the kids yesterday
These are a great way to get toddlers to eat, just keep an eye on them until they know not to eat the stick. You could also use popsicle sticks, & make larger pancakes for older children!
