Gooooooood freaking morning! You know why it’s a good freaking morning? Because it’s 6:30am here in Cabo and I’m sitting on the rooftop of the house we are renting, watching the sunrise and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anything more beautiful. It’s absolutely stunning. It’s a sea of blue to pink then orange and red then back to blue. And in the middle of it all is this (now tiny) cruise ship coming in to dock so everyone can explore Cabo. Can you imagine being the captain of a cruise ship? Yikes. Have you ever heard podcasts about people disappearing on cruise ships? Double yikes. I’ll stay on ground thank you very much. Anywho, why do photos never do it justice when it comes to sunrises or sunsets? I just tried to wake up my sister-in-law to watch the sunrise with me (because she asked me to last night) and right after I scared the sh*t out of her standing over her bed like it was her last moment on earth, she went right back to sleep. So I’m taking in these sights alone. Except with you. And the brightness of my computer. Mood lighting.

How’s the start of your New Year going so far? I have to say, ringing in the New Year in hot weather, on the beach, with the most beautiful sunrises of all time…well it’s the best. I woke up not hungover, got my sweat on overlooking the beach (where I almost fell off a cliff trying to be fit), and ate to my hearts content. Does a New Year get any better than that? I was worried about going on a vacation with my family because, well, family. But it’s been great. Renting a large house for this sort of thing is a good idea. I seriously had some major anxiety before we left but being in Cabo make everything better. We haven’t even done much other than just sit around and hang out in the pool, which I’m totally cool with when on vacation, but today we are going to venture out and go whale watching and then snorkeling. I’m out when it comes to snorkeling because it creeps me TF out. I keep trying every time I’m on vacation and then I feel like I’m in someone else’s home and want to go to shore. Hey fish, sorry I got all up in yo business. You deserve more respect than that.

I have to say, I think the coffee is stronger in Cabo. Like, maybe line with crack. I take four sips and I’m typing faster than my brain can even process the word. And if you’ve followed my blog for any sort of time, you know I’m terrible at spelling and grammar, so this coffee is not helping my case. You know what may help you forgive me for you English course mishaps…THIS RECIPE!! If you haven’t tried my Greek Yogurt Fluffy Waffles yet, it’s time!! I even walk you through them with a cooking video. But this time around, I turned the recipe into pancakes. I made these right before I left for Mexico and I had a hard time putting them down. They are so delicious and you can really get creative with them. Top them with fruit or chocolate chip or coconut whipped cream or make a breakfast sandwich out of them.  They are magical little rounds of joy. Now go make them!! And put them on a cute little scale like I did. I need more cute little things like this around the house. I also want these twinkle lights and this awesome frame. I’m all over the place. And I’m sweating profusely from this coffee so I need to go sprint it out. KBye!

Greek Yogurt Pancakes

  • Author: juli
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 10-12 pancakes 1x


  • 1 cup greek yogurt*
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 3 tablespoons almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt

For the blueberry compote:

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together yogurt, eggs, almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract. In a larger bowl, whisk together tapioca and almond flour, baking powder and salt. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  2. Heat up a large griddle pan over medium and grease. 
  3. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop about ¼ cup of the batter onto the greased hot griddle and cook the pancakes until the begin to bubble, about 2-3 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes. The batter should be 10-12 three inch pancakes. 
  4. While the pancakes are cooking, place the ingredient for the blueberry compote in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook for about 8-10 minutes, until the berries begin to burst and soften. Stir every couple minutes to keep from sticking to the bottom. 
  5. Top the pancakes with the blueberry compote and a little extra maple syrup!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Sooooo the bachelor is back on! Please tell me you are going to watch and comment this season ( when you return from vaca of course). ????

    1. i’m deeeeeefinitely watching!! i’ve just been out of town so I haven’t been able to watch the first episode yet!! but i will absolutely be recapping all of it!

  2. So glad you’re having a great time in Cabo! My hubby and I went there for our 15th wedding anniversary and absolutely loved it. If you can, I’d highly recommend things like horseback riding on the beach or a catamaran cruise. And I’m still dreaming of the molcajete {spelling?} we ate – big flaming bowls of charred octopus, shrimp, fish – YUM! Also, I literally never drink except every five years on anniversary trips, but going to tequila tastings is a blast! Los Tres Tonos has amazing free tequila tastings.

  3. Hey there so I made her pancakes and they were delicious I’ve never had a made that way before so they were a bit chewy at first I thought but I quickly got used to it and devoured them. Is there any place to find the nutritional value count grams of protein, grams of sugar, calories something like that? I’m trying to lose weight and want to make sure I’m not going completely overboard with these delicious pancakes. I also had a question regarding Greek yogurt is that Paleo? I also need to eat or buffalo chicken casserole tonight my husband even loved it score!
    Thanks for the great recipes. Any tips you have to get kick started for WeightLoss would be appreciated. Thanks again.

    1. you can figure out the nutritional content with a nutritional calculator online!! and if you read the recipe, there is a * next to greek yogurt and i mention the brand which is an almond milk greek yogurt, which has no dairy. so yes, this brand is paleo. if you are looking for weight loss however, i would stay away from baked goods in general

  4. Hi JulI! I would like to make this recipe nut free- what do you recommend I do? Should I replace the almond flour with cassava flour?

    Thank you!

  5. Hi Juli, Do you think I could sub for Goat yogurt or the kite hill almond plain cream cheese instead of greek yogurt? 🙂

  6. Hi Juli,
    Happy New Year and glad Cabo is doing it for you. It’s freaking bitter cold here in Lancaster PA at the moment so I am drooling over your warm weather.
    I am excited about these pancakes because my hubs loves them at least once in the weekends. I made another paleo batter last week and it’s the first time it didn’t bother my stomach eating pancakes. YAY!!!
    Love your blog and recipes. New to Paleo but getting there more and more every day. I take it your husband eats Paleo also? My hubby will eat what ever I make so All is good in this house.
    Janet 🙂

  7. Just curious…I thought Greek yogurt came from cows and contains lactose? Pretty sure it’s not dairy-free. The title of the recipe might be misleading. Sorry, I am not trying to step on your toes, just making an observation and hopefully clearing up any confusions for those trying to avoid dairy.
    By the way, I am from Boise. So glad you came to visit and loved it as much as I do!!

    1. kristyn, if you look at the recipe, you’ll notice that the greek yogurt came from kite hill almond milk greek yogurt. almond milk does not come from cows. and there is no lactose in the almond milk greek yogurt. which is why it is dairy-free. i’m not misleading anyone since i explain the exact greek yogurt i used in the recipe, you just have to read the recipe to see that!

  8. Thank you for the response, Juli! I did see your disclaimer at the end of the recipe, but obviously, I did not read it closely! Sorry about that. I did not mean to offend you. I seriously thought you had made an honest mistake, but I should have known better;).
    Thank you for all your efforts with your blog, podcast and instagram. I particularly LOVE your fashion and food information. Keep doing you!

  9. Juli!! These pancakes are EVERYTHING!!!! I didn’t do the blueberry compote, I bought a no preservative local blueberry syrup made only with blueberries, sugar, and lemon, but still fantastic!!

    I got all 3 of your cookbooks for Christmas! So excited for this year!

    Thanks for you blog, it made my life so much easier when I first made the paleo switch. ????

  10. Definitely going to be making these! They look great. BTW, I share a first and last name with a woman who disappeared from a cruise ship in the 90s. I haven’t listened to any podcasts about it yet – it really creeps me out! Once in awhile, someone will be like, “hey did you know about this??” and I’m like, “yessssss it’s awful!” Thanks for all the great info you share – keep on keepin’ on!

  11. I was reading your recipe on the yogurt pancakes. They sound yummy. I do have one question.
    I thougt yogurt is dairy and that is not allowed on the Paleo diet. Can you clarify this for me.

  12. These were yummy I love the chewiness of them. I just made them with regular Greek yogurt and they came out great. Thanks for all your recipes, they never disappoint!!

  13. Love these! I’ve made them several times now. The first time all I had on hand was sour cream, which worked great as a sub for the almond milk yogurt! Obviously not dairy-free that way, but ok by me. I think they’re even better left over – if you don’t devour them all right away! I just heat them up quickly in a skillet, smother with a little grass-fed butter and the compote, roll up like a taco and snack away. Speaking of, that blueberry compote? That stuff is amazing! You could add that to so many things – ice cream, yogurt, oatmeal, etc. Love that it’s not too sweet. The lemon does the trick! Thanks, Juli!

  14. I made these pancakes and they were fantastic! For the compote, I did not have blueberries but rather a mix of blackberries and raspberries. It turned out like ambrosia. Thanks for the great recipe.
