Strawberry Pancakes

Not gonna lie, my top fruit-filled pancake choices are usually banana (#1) or blueberry (#2). But I was inspired by Chocolate Covered Katie's strawberry shortcake pancakes to try out a different pancake version, and OH MY were these guys yummy...

I pretty much stuck to CCK's recipe, so I'll defer to her site for more info. In my version, I used stevia for the sweetener, a mix of whole wheat pastry flour and all-purpose, a mix of quick and multi-grain oats, and I reduced the coconut oil to just 1/4 tsp. I also added 1/8 tsp maple extract, which I think was a good addition! Especially since my maple agave syrup blew up in my microwave. Literally. I had it in a mini glass pitcher (that I've microwaved before) and the entire thing shattered. Whoops. Oh well; breakfast was still yummy...

These were a thick pancake, not light & fluffy, but delicious all the same. Next time though, I might have to try strawberry-banana- I just love my banana too much :-)


  1. I was just thinking what I should do with the bag of frozen strawberries from last years harvest, maybe these? they look so yum!

  2. Ooo yes they were yum! Maybe you should make the strawberry banana version!
