  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour can substitute with all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1-1/2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk can substitute with another milk of your choice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Nutella Filling:

  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Cream Cheese Glaze (optional):

  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract



  1. Preheat a griddle or a large skillet to medium heat and grease with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In another bowl, beat the Greek yogurt and maple syrup together. Stir in vanilla extract then milk and finally the beaten eggs slowly. Mix until well incorporated.
  4. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Over mixing will result in less fluffy pancakes.
  5. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt Nutella and butter together in 10-second increments, stirring in between until pourable consistency.
  6. Pour filling into a pastry bag with a small tip.
  7. Scoop about 1/4 cup batter onto the skillet. When pancake has started to cook a little, swirl in the Nutella filling.

  8. When bubbles begin to appear on the surface, flip carefully with a spatula and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes more until browned on the underside.
  9. Transfer to a baking sheet or platter and keep in a warm oven until ready to serve.

Cream Cheese Glaze:

  1. In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, heat cream cheese, and butter until melted. Whisk together with powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  2. When ready to serve, spoon warmed glaze onto the top of each pancake.

Recipe Notes

You may have to keep reheating the Nutella filling in the microwave as you make the pancakes so it remains liquefied.
