Richly spiced, fluffy gingerbread yogurt pancakes to fill your morning with holiday spirit.

Mondays and pancakes don’t always go together because guys, we have things to do! People to see! To-do lists to conquer!

And falling asleep at our desks at 11 due to carb overload is just not acceptable beginning-of-the-week behavior.

I mean, it’s not even Thursday yet. We have to have some standards.


But what if I told you I had an encounter this weekend with the perfect Monday pancake?

That it’s not only high on the protein content spectrum, but it has morals and ethics and (GASP) whole wheat flour.

This calls for hugs.


I invited cinnamon, spice, and everything nice to the pancake party as well because HOLIDAY CHEER. We need it.

In our weekends, of course, but especially in our Mondays when it feels like there is so very little else to get out of bed for.

And maple syrup on top. Don’t be a martyr.


I’m actually not usually too big of a gingerbread fan because I find the bitterness of molasses to be a major turn-off, but against the backdrop of pancake fluff, it feels less intense and cloying than it does in cake or cookie form.

When it works, it works.


Siggi’s Icelandic-style strained yogurt is perfect for upping the protein ante in these. It’s pretty low in sugar, but with the perfect amount of creaminess so that it gives the impression of decadence and indulgence. I find the subtle coconut pairs perfectly with the rich gingerbread spices, but so would the vanilla or pumpkin flavors if those are easier for you to get your hands on.

This Monday thing. I feel like we can do this.

    I’m not usually a huge fan of gingerbread either. Mostly because it can be bitter dry and the cookies are rock hard. But in fluffy pancakes – yes please!

  9. I kid you not, I was JUST thinking yesterday about how wonderful it would be to have some fluffy gingerbread pancakes in my life one morning soon. It’s like you knew I needed them, too. *high five*

  10. I was happily greeted by this stack of pancakes on Instagram this morning and I couldn’t wait to read your post! De-Lish!!

    Healthy Holiday Pancakes on a Monday? Win! Love these. Siggis is one of my favorites, but I’ve never tried cooking with it. Definitely trying these!

    Phil is the pancake maker in our home and very adamant about his family recipe. I try to rebel a few times, but let’s say it is a tricky subject

    would love to have a couple of your gorgeous pancakes, although I would probably have them for lunch instead of breakfast… 😉

  17. Ehm…. can Pancake Mondays be a thing? Also I love Siggi’s Dairy! They’re such a great company, and produce amazing products. Glad you got the chance to work with them!

    Every Monday should come with a high stack of fluffy pancakes! Gah, these things look so flavorful! I love yogurt pancakes – so rich with such a nice tang. I can taste the holidays now!

  19. Healthier pancakes that are Monday-approved?! Ok, fine, truth? Usually I’m so bummed that it’s Monday that I start my week like this, and by Friday, I’m eating the healthy stuff out of guilt for what I’ve done all week. So pretty much I would love these either way 🙂

  20. Oh, YUM! I am going to make these on Christmas eve morning when we have family staying.

  21. Pam says:

  27. Kate says:

    My only drawback with Monday pancakes is the extra time it takes to make them!

  28. I am such a breakfast person, so you have got me going with this recipe. I’m definitely trying this out this weekend

  32. These pancakes sound amazing! I just bought a gingerbread doughnut, and I have got to say, it was pretty tasty. This sounds like a way healthier way of getting my gingerbread fix!

  33. I first read the title of this at breakfast time and had to stop myself from getting up and making them immediately! I am now reading it properly mid-afternoon and thank goodness there is no kitchen handy!

    I do love your perfect looking stack of pancakes. I don’t think I’ve ever had pancakes on a Monday. I do like the flavour of gingerbread though. I haven’t made any gingerbread so far this festive season and I hope I do get the chance (just so bloody busy!) xx
