Low Salicylate Chive and Greek Yoghurt Pancakes

by | Apr 17, 2022

It’s Easter morning in our house and suffice to say Dan and I were woken up to squeals of delight when Evs arose to find a trail of chocolate eggs leading from his bedroom to the front garden. After a fun-filled 6am egg hunt we toddled back into the house where I whipped up a batch of these chive pancakes served alongside some smoked salmon and cream cheese. It’s a wonderfully light yet satisfying meal to start the day….I mean, you need to save room for all that chocolate after all!

Low Salicylate Chive and Greek Yoghurt Pancakes

Serves 2-3



  • Cutting board and knife
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Mixing bowl
  • Frypan



1 cup of all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

Pinch of salt

2 tsp maple syrup

1 egg

1/4 cup milk

3/4 cup greek yogurt

2 Tbsp sunflower oil (plus extra for cooking)

2 Tbsp finely chopped chives (plus a little extra for serving)


To serve

125 grams smoked salmon*

100 grams cream cheese




1.) Preheat fan-forced oven to 100 degrees celsius

2.) In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients

3.) In a seperate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients

4.) Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until combined (be careful not to over-mix, a few lumps are ok)

5.) Stir in chives

6.) Heat a frypan over medium heat and add a Tbsp or so of oil and let heat for around 3 minutes. Once pan is heated, scoop 1/3 cup of the batter into the frypan. I find I can make three pancakes at a time, but this will depend on how large your frypan is.

7.) Cook pancakes until you can see bubbles appear on the top and the edges start to dry. Flip pancake with spatula and cook until golden underneath. Keep cooked pancakes warm by placing them on a cooling rack in the preheated oven (I use a cooling rack so the undersides of the pancakes don’t get soggy).

8.) Once you’ve finished using the pancake batter, plate up pancakes and serve with a plate of smoked salmon, a small bowl of cream cheese and a small bowl of chives for sprinkling on top.

*I can’t find any information as to the salicylate content of smoked salmon – just something you might want to watch out for.
