Combine softened cream cheese, Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, and one tablespoon maple syrup in a medium bowl. Whisk to combine and set aside.

Heat a non-stick griddle or large well-seasoned cast iron skillet over medium heat. Pour a scant ¼ cup of batter per pancake and cook until golden brown, approximately 1 minute per side. Repeat with remaining batter. Tip: Reduce heat to just below medium if pancakes become too dark before they are cooked through.
Once the last pancakes are on the griddle, return the peaches to medium heat until heated through, approximately 2 minutes.
