Whole Wheat Strawberry Pancakes

Occasionally, I go through phases with my food, especially breakfast foods. For two weeks, I may crave Greek yogurt with almond butter and berries. For weeks on end, I’ll want eggs in the nest at every lunch. For the entire month of February, all I wanted for breakfast was a breakfast crisp.


These past 2 weeks, it has been all about the strawberries. I picked 13.5 pounds on Monday and another 12 this Saturday. Many are frozen and preserved already, and many have been eaten plain, but I wanted to mix it up a bit. My strawberry and cream scones may not have turned out quite the way I wanted (think flat and crumbly), but these pancakes certainly did.

Whole Wheat Strawberry Pancakes


  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 3/4 cup diced strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the oil and milk, whisking until all the dry ingredients are incorporated into the wet. Fold in the strawberries and chocolate.
  2. Heat a greased skillet or frying pan over medium-low heat. Pour 1/4 c of batter into the pan and cook until there are bubbles on the surface and the edges start to firm up, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook until the other side is nicely browned, about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Serve with maple syrup or strawberry preserves.

    Once I start picking I can’t stop haha! It’s like “Oh there’s a good one… and another good one… and ANOTHER!” We picked blackberries last weekend and picked so many that we couldn’t eat them fast enough. I bookmarked this pancake recipe. My daughter will love it!

    I love strawberries! Can’t get enough. I wan to plan a trip to pick strawberries, but am afraid I’ll eat my weight in them. Oh well it would be worth it!

    We used to pick strawberries all the time when I was little. My brothers and I were such little thieves about it too. For every berry that went in the basket, we ate like 10. These pancakes look AWESOME! Maybe I can convince Neil to do a breakfast for dinner this week…

    Mmm yes, I can’t get enough strawberries lately! Every morning’s breakfast is based around how I’ll implement strawberries while still maintaining variety. It’s a fun little challenge. πŸ™‚

      What else have you done for breakfasts? I’ve had them in yogurt, pancakes and breakfast crisps so far.
