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.
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!

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

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!
