We need to talk.

Ok, maybe I need to talk and you need to listen to me rant.

What is up with kids and balloons?

It’s like it has been programmed into them since they were mere infants to go completely and utterly berzerk whenever they see balloons. Jumping up and down, arms waving all around, screaming at the top of their lungs, “BALLOOOOOONS!!!”

My husband just has his birthday last week and to surprise him when he got home from work, the kids and I strolled down to the dollar store to pick up some classy decorations. We picked up some streamers, a little banner, and of course some dreaded balloons.

Don’t get me wrong, balloons are fine. But when you mix my 4 kids with a balloon it’s pure chaos. For some reason I always forget this and end up buying more balloons.

So we bought one of those fancy mylar balloons that says, “Happy Birthday Dad” as well as a handful of regular ol’ blow-them-up-yourself balloons. When the nice lady at the store was filling up the giant balloon, it happened.

My kids started with, “I’m holding it first!”

“No, me! I get to hold it.”

“I picked it out, I get to hold it.”

While I was pretending that these are not my children, that same nice lady who was filling up the balloon decided to fill up some regular ol’ balloons for each of them to hold. Great. More ammo.

As soon as we get home they are running around punching balloons, playing volleyball (which means spiking it in each other’s face), rubbing them on each other’s hair, and…and… POP!

Cries. Tears. Sadness.

Then dad walks in the door…. SURPRISE!…. happy birthday??

Then when they are sleeping I quietly pop each. and. every. balloon. {it’s a technique I’ve learned to master}

As long as you prepare some of these Strawberry Greek Yogurt Pancakes first thing in the morning they will forget all about the balloons, and order will be restored to the world.

These pancakes are so delicious. They are fluffy on the inside with the perfect amount of moistness. By using strawberry greek yogurt in the batter it gives the pancakes a fresh strawberry flavor and loads of healthy protein.

    Wow buddy!!! In this lock down period you helped me a lot… Thanks buddy.. I would like to try this tomorrow. Hope my wife will feel great 🙂

      They would be flat pancakes. I do have a recipe for pancakes that uses very basic ingredients that does not require baking powder or vanilla. You can check them out here: Dad’s 3 Ingredient Pancakes

    Just perfect!
    Until a few time ago, it was the only way to make my boyfriend have breakfast haha. All our friend ask for them. I once tried them with cream cheese instead of yogurt and it still worked! Plus, this is a never-fail recipe, your pancakes always come off perfect, which didn’t happen with other recipes I tried.
    I’m sorry my way of writing must be terribile but I’m Italian and it doesn’t often happen to me to write in English

  3. Laura @ Tiny Houses

    This pancakes look very delicious. My kids would love it. I also love the fact that it contains yogurt. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    So every weekend, when I finish up my open house, I bring the balloons back for my niece. Balloons are like an obsession for children like shoes are to us, I suppose. Thanks so much for sharing the greek yogurt idea for the pancakes. I love pancakes and struggle with making them because they lack protein. So excited to make them this way! Really appreciate that your cooking style includes some healthy and yummy ideas!

  5. Donna @ The Slow Roasted Italian

    Seriously! I think they multiply. Now, we have one very calm child. So, we are adventurous with parties! We even rent a helium tank. But, her party was the end of January and I am still finding balloons. I too am a master at popping while she sleeps. {{insert wicked mom laugh}} Pancakes look fabulous!

    The Strawberry Greek Yogurt Pancakes are the true definition of healthy snacks. Since I don’t want my kids to get addicted to junk foods, I’ve always made a point of making for them the Strawberry Greek Yogurt Pancakes at least 3 times in a week.

  7. Dana

    These are beautiful pancakes! I love pancakes that involve strawberry somehow! Yum! Please tell me how you ‘quietly’ pop balloons. I don’t even have kids yet and want to know.! 🙂 {unless that’s an inside mom joke that I wouldn’t get}. lol.

    1. Shawn

      Haha! No, it’s not an inside joke… What I do is hold the balloon between my arm and body and gently pull the belly button of the balloon out. Then I carefully snip just a little bit of the balloon under the knot with some scissors and the air quietly seeps out. Works like a charm every time. 🙂 Now are you officially prepared to have children. LOL

  8. Wendy @ AMFT

    Oh…we don’t do balloon animals here…can’t stand them! Balloons go away magically at night here…kids haven’t figured it out yet. LOL! These pancakes look so good Shawn! YUM!

  9. Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust

    Oh, balloons. God forbid it pops or “goes away” while the child is at school! 🙂 Love these pancakes!

  10. Nancy

    This recipe sounds so good! As soon as I find strawberry Greek yogurt, I am making these. I have regular Greek yogurt but didn’t know they made it in strawberry. Sounds delish and I am going to try it! I always wondered why kids get so crazy when balloons are around myself! My daughter hates balloons, in kindergarten they played a game where you have to sit on the balloon and pop it! Well, she was so light, her balloon wouldn’t pop and everybody else was done, watching her try to pop hers and she just hated that!! Luckily, she doesn’t want them at any party she is at. She avoids them like the flu.

    1. Shawn

      Oh man that would definitely be hard on a little kid!

      You can use the smaller cups of Greek yogurt with strawberry and just stir it up till it’s all combined. Works like a pro. 😉

  11. Rachel @ Baked by Rachel

    Kids and balloons are serious trouble but omg whats worse is CATS and balloons or rather the ribbon. Good grief just make it stop. Oh and I’ll take a nice stack of these awesome pancakes while we’re ranting 🙂

  12. Asiya @ Chocolate and Chillies

    HAHA…..My eldest was actually terrified of balloons when he was younger 🙂

    Love the pancakes and the addition of greek yogurt! Definitely must try!

  13. Cookin Canuck

    Too funny! Yes, I’ve had many of those balloon moments and have been known to take a needle to the trouble-makers (the balloons, not the kids) when no one’s looking. These pancakes are beautiful, Shawn, and I love the addition of Greek yogurt.

  14. Deborah

    Haha!! It was my son’s birthday last week, and the same thing happened. and my daughter ended up popping the balloon and chaos ensued. I needed these pancakes!
