Life can get crazy at times…sometimes, even downright tiring!
These last few days, I have been bone tired – maybe it’s the cold, or, maybe it’s being back to my 9-5 job. Either way, I have just been so in need of a Me moment that yesterday I plopped in front of the telly and turned on Netflix (trying to fulfill my resolutions from years past). I was looking for an old episode of Desperate Housewives, only to find that Netflix doesn’t carry it anymore! So, I turned off the telly and cleaned the whole kitchen – sometimes, I cannot explain my actions either!
At least I know why I am tired today!

Life can get crazy at times…sometimes, even downright messy!
Yesterday morning it was 12 degrees in Atlanta (not including the wind chill), and even my dogs were feeling it – so much so that when I opened the back door to let them out, they decided it was too cold to walk down the deck stairs and proceeded to “decorate” the deck with their “business!
At least it wasn’t the living room they decided to decorate – right?!

Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt is just the right amount of wrong. Whether it is a touch of indulgence to start your morning or an indulgent break in the afternoon - go ahead and indulge because you deserve it!
Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt is just the right amount of wrong. Whether it is a touch of indulgence to start your morning or an indulgent break in the afternoon – go ahead and indulge because you deserve it!

Life’s crazy, tiring and messy moments dictate the need for sanity saving Me moments! Me moments would be wonderful with a bowl of vanilla ice cream – but, not the best idea for lactose intolerant old me! Besides, I usually like an indulgent treat that balances taste and nutrition! And, that’s where Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt comes into play! This is a new product by Müller®; and, after bringing them home from my neighborhood Walmart store and trying each of the 3 flavors (Raspberry Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Bean), I gotta say, Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt is the right amount of wrong!   😆  


One morning, in my attempt to add variety to my breakfasts (and snacks and desserts) of Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt, I figured I would use them in pancakes. And that’s how these super easy Yogurt Oatmeal Pancakes got in my belly!

There are many versions of Yogurt Oatmeal Pancakes out there – and mine is probably not very different from them; with the only differences being that mine contain ground up gluten free oats; and, only 4 other ingredients in addition to 2 containers of Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt!


These pancakes are so super simple, they can be whipped up any time of the day, any day of the week – with ingredients such as oats, milk (of your choice), an egg and baking powder – which you probably already have lying around your house!

Just mix them up with Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt and spoon them onto a greased pan and flip and voila – your Me Moment is ready! But be warned, these pancakes taste more indulgent than their ingredient list makes them out to be – specially with toppings of Raspberry Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Bean Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt!


Each 5.3oz container of Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt contains:
• 6% milk fat yogurt
• 7g of protein
• Less sugar than other yogurts
• And, 190-210 calories


And, if you happen to have last Sundays’ paper (January 4th), you will find a “$1 off 5 Müller® Yogurts” coupon in it – which I must say is a great value! This coupon is valid from January 4 – February 15, 2015.

    Look delicious , hoy many ounces of yogurt is needed for recipe .

  2. foodrecipeshq says:

    I usually eat plain natural yogurt with no sugar added (when I eat something supposed to be healthy I want the whole package of benefits) but I like to use a more indulgent yogurt to bake a cake and prepare my pancakes. These yogurt oatmeal pancakes scream yumminess!

  3. Life is busy or not, there should always be time for tasty stacks!! Love the added yogurt here 🙂

  4. Fross says:

    These sound so delicious and look yummy too! I have a question though: for those of us who can’t find the yogurt you use in the pancakes, can we use regular yogurt or Balkan style yogurt? I’d really want to try these 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

  5. Howie Fox says:

    Woah, a new pancake recipe!!! And it’s quick, healthy and easy. Thanks!! Need to try this, I’m getting tired of my banana egg pancakes slowly 😉

  6. The weather can really be a downer. The stack of goodness is for sure to brighten anyone’s day. I love the recipe Sashi. I will have to make them soon. Have a warm week. Pinning this.

  7. Most excellent recipe for pancakes, my friend! Everything you make is irresistible…and, healthier! I love that these are oatmeal pancakes and that you added yogurt. Cannot wait to try this one on a lazy weekend morning! Thanks for sharing, my friend. Have a fabulous rest of the week! xo

    • Shashi says:

      Stacy – you are so incredibly kind!!! Thank you for your sweet comments and I am still trying to get over your thank you post! You rock!
      Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week too

  8. Life gets crazy at times (if not always) and pancake moments are crucial in order to get by. These looks crazy good my dear friend!
    And I love that yogurt brand: it’s amazing!

    • Shashi says:

      Thanks so much Mike! I must say, sometimes just saying the word “pancakes” or the word “cupcakes” get me by …maybe cos they both en in “cakes”???
      Have you tried their new Ice cream inspired line yet? so dang decadent!!!

  9. These pancakes look wonderful and I love that you topped them with yogurt. I never thought of doing that. Going to have to try this yogurt ASAP. My go to breakfast is a banana with a little peanut butter and a dollop of yogurt. These flavors would be perfect!

  10. hipfoodiemom says:

    Shashi, I’ve never used yogurt as a topping on pancakes but this looks sooooo good!!!! love these oatmeal pancakes!

  11. Wait… ICE CREAM INSPIRED YOGURT?! Now this is my kind of yogurt 😉 haha Those pancakes look amazing and I’m definitely keeping an eye out for that yogurt!

  12. Joanne says:

    Life can definitely get crazy at times…but at least we always have pancakes! I’m sure they are extra delicious with this yogurt addition!

  13. Ashley says:

    I need to take more me moments … I get so caught up in everything that has to be done, but I really need to stop and relax and breathe more often!!

    These pancakes look amazing Shashi! I’ve gotten really into pancakes again lately and these have my name written all over them!

    • Shashi says:

      Thanks so much, Ashley – stopping and relaxing and breathing is something I am trying to do more of myself! Here’s hoping we both get to have more Me Moments in 2015 🙂

  14. I love these pancakes, so much healthier than the regular kind. And these days, I think we’re all trying to do little substitutions that don’t seem like much of a sacrifice but make all the difference around the waistline. The idea of using yogurt and oatmeal, awesome. And the kids will love these =)

    • Shashi says:

      Thanks so much Laura! Yes – you re right about the kids loving it – I had no complaints about eating breakfast from my 16 year old daughter!

  15. Tara says:

    Yum! These look good. Being back at work sucks 🙁

  16. These pancakes are excellent, I love the moistness it must get from the yoghurt 😀
    Thank goodness it is breakfast time here!

  17. Pancakes are perfect for me moments because they are easy to make and clean up! Love that you used the yogurt in the batter! So smart! It is dang cold down here! I barely want to walk to the car. Sooo I’m not sure how I’ll survive in NYC, but I can figure that out next week 🙂

    • Shashi says:

      Thanks so much Lindsey! Hey – it’s warming up a tad – we are finally above freezing! woohoo!
      Though I spoke to my cousins in Jersey yesterday and they said they were still under a blanket of snow with temps in the high 30’s! If I was there I might have fleece lined EVERYTHING!!! Safe travels and cannot wait to hear how culinary school is! xxs

  18. You had me at ice cream inspired yogurt! Wowzers!

  19. These are some stick to your ribs pancakes! Adding yogurt to them adds some extra protein and I am sure made them extra delicious.

  20. mjskit says:

    Now that’s a great stack of pancakes!! I’ve never heard of Muller Ice cream yogurt, but now I need to find them! Thanks for the review and the recipe! Oh…and Happy 2015!!!

  21. Love the idea of adding yogurt into pancakes. They look healthy and indulgent at the same time. 🙂

  22. Ice cream inspired yogurt?! No.WAY. You guys get all the good stuff down there! I have no doubt that this yogurt won’t find itself into our grocery stores for at LEAST another few years. Pft. And these pancakes look fantastic, Shashi. I’m a HUGE fan of oatmeal pancakes… even more so when yogurt is involved 🙂

    • Shashi says:

      Thanks so much Amanda – you kind words mean a lot coming from the Queen of yogurt pancakes! 🙂
      Well, only one thing to do – come visit and take a refrigerated truckload of these back home with ya – though these days its been below or at freezing even here in the South! GAH!

  23. These look fabulous, Shashi! I love the stack – they look like a cross between a crepe and a pancake – what a perfect hybrid!

  24. Kelly says:

    It’s always tough right after the holidays especially the first week of January. These pancakes look perfect for getting that special “me” time. They look amazing and I love the Müller yogurt in here! Hope you are able to get some rest this weekend!

    • Shashi says:

      Thanks so much Kelly – it’s funny how it takes me so long to get used to going back to my 9-5 office job, but I it takes me hardly any time to get used to being on vacation from it! 😉
      Hope you and your family are are having a wonderful 2015 my friend!

  25. Kim says:

    I wish I liked making pancakes:) I like eating them but rarely do because that would require making them!! These look good!

  26. cottercrunch says:

    where were you this week when i was craving good pancakes? the healthy kind? haha i tried but my crumbled. I need your skill!

  27. Erin @ says:

    These look amazing!!! You have managed to bundle all of my favorite breakfast foods into 1 dish!! I will have to try this! 🙂

  28. cookwithmanali says:

    Perfect way to start the day! Love the pancakes Shashi!

  29. Me moments are always necessary. I feel like pancakes are a great way to get into the kitchen and unwind, because who doesn’t love pancakes?! These look delicious!

  30. These look to die for!! I am craving pancakes so bad right now!

  31. Pancakes <3 The perfect ME breakfast!

  32. I’m slowly falling in love with pancakes. I never used to like them before because they felt dry and bland. But I’ve learned ways around that now and I’m sure these are way beyond bland! Never used yogurt with pancakes. YUM!

    • Shashi says:

      I used to not like those restaurant pancakes because I thought they were bland – but when I make them at home, I have total freedom to doctor them up the way I want!
      Btw, thanks so much Melanie!

  33. Dinnermom says:

    What a fantastic yogurt! Ice-cream inspired pancakes…I’m in!

  34. Sonali- The Foodie Physician says:

    That yogurt sounds amazing and these pancakes look so yummy! I hope you get to rest and relax this weekend 🙂

  35. spicedblog says:

    Totally digging these pancakes, Shashi! They look delicious. Also, we have definitely had those mornings where the dogs decided to decorate our back deck, too. That usually is followed by me getting a bucket of water to dump on the back deck. The aforementioned water then turns to ice within a short period of time…and then the dogs slide across it later. So their plan kinda comes back to bite them in the rear…haha! Oh, and I hear ya about being tired. This week has been rough!!

    • Shashi says:

      Hahahaha! Oh my – I just had a visual of your dogs slipping and sliding over that water! I so need to try that (when my daughter is not looking – she babies our dogs way too much!)
      If temperatures here were like they were in Upstate NY – I would have called my boss and told him I was going into hibernation – till April!
      Btw – Thanks David! Hope you and Laura had a wonderful weekend!

  36. Whoa whoa whoa. HOLD UP. Ice Cream inspired yogurt? AND IN A PANCAKE?
    You KNOW that I am 110% all over these. I seriously need to find that yogurt because…HOLY YUM.
    And that is totally something my dog would do. Little buggers.

    • Shashi says:

      Hahaha – when it snowed here last year, Taylor, I had “yellow” snow on my deck!!! GAH!!!! But then again – if my “bathroom” was outdoors, I might need some Depends or something… 😉
      Thanks so much lady! I hope you find this yogurt there – it is so creamy and decadent!

  37. yum! these look so tasty! Love that you used oat flour! My fav! Def gonna try those yogurts!!!

  38. Maureen | Orgasmic Chef says:

    I’ve been really tired this week and I’ve fought it every day. I’m not sleeping well and then I push myself from early morning. Maybe if I had these pancakes then went to bed with a book I’d feel better. 🙂

    • Shashi says:

      Maureen – now these pancakes as dessert is such a brilliant idea! I am gonna go make me some right now! 😉
      I hope and pray John is feeling better.

  39. navane64 says:

    Nice way of kicking starting with a healthy meal.

  40. Khushboo says:

    A taste of ice cream in the morning? I want in…even if we ain’t actually eating the real deal ;)! When I lived in London, I used to buy Muller Light yogurts by the dozen. I know they are filled with sweeteners but they tasted so good, especially the vanilla & caramel flavours!

    • Shashi says:

      I am a huge fan of vanilla – I don’t think I’ve ever tried the caramel – Muller is a wonderfully indulgent treat, specially these new ice cream inspired ones – and seeing my lactose intolerant gut won’t let me eat the real deal – these will have to do 😉

  41. Angie@Angie's Recipes says:

    These are a great meal to kick start the day, Shashi.
