These pancakes are fabulous! (By the way, I've noticed that I use that adjective somewhat frequently. I hereby make a promise to use a Thesaurus and expand my vocabulary. Thank you.)
The recipe comes from Katie at Chocolate Covered Katie. Katie is a vegan, dedicated to creating healthy foods that taste phenomenal. I just discovered her blog this past week on Pinterest. (We've talked about this already haven't we? About how much I am addicted to Pinterest? And how I spend way too much time on there? But look at the wonderful things that come from my addiction! Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes!)
Back on topic now - Katie definitely delivers on her promise. Of course, this is the first recipe I have tried of hers; but, as good as these pancakes were, I am sure she will not disappoint in her other recipes. Now, obviously, Lester and I are not vegan, so I do not have a problem with using regular milk instead of non-dairy as the recipe calls for. But, that is really the only thing I changed about the recipe. It is delicious in its own right! I will share with you the recipe as I made it, but visit Katie's website to see the original and check out the rest of her yummy looking food!
Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes
adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie
makes 2 serving (3 pancakes each)
- 1 cup chopped strawberries
- 2/3 cup all purpose flour
- 4 T rolled oats
- 1 1/3 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 2 T sugar
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 T vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips (Not called for in the original recipe...but I can't leave well enough alone. I love chocolate chips in my pancakes!) :)
Grease a skillet or griddle and heat to medium-low.
Pour batter onto greased skillet using a 1/4 measuring cup. (This will make sure the pancakes are all roughly the same size and that you get six.)
At this point I will just say cook until done, flipping once. And good luck with that. I can't flip pancakes. The first batch always falls apart. Is there some secret I don't know about??
Why don't you try them for breakfast sometime? How about this morning? There is still plenty of time left. Enjoy!
