Vanilla Strawberry Pancakes

Hi Everyone,

Today is the last official day of Pancake week, but that’s not going to stop me from making pancakes.  I just love pancakes!  You can make them anyway you like and I love that!  I can’t wait till next year to see how many different kind of pancakes I will have created.

These pancakes I made last weekend, and I wanted to share them with you earlier but I figured I may bore you of pancakes everyday for a week, though I can’t imagine how?  Pancakes are a fun breakfast food.

These pancakes are a little different then my previous strawberry pancakes, these have fresh strawberries stuffed on the inside and are made with Vanilla Greek Yogurt.  Plus I think there the lowest calorie pancakes I have made!  166 calories for 3 1/2 of them.  But who’s going to eat half a pancake, just eat 4!

These pancakes look nice, but I think they need a little something, something.  What do you think?

That’s more like it, but we need more, please.

I love playing with my tripod, this is the fun part of pancakes, besides the taste!

Yum, I think I’m going to make pancakes for my Saturday morning breakfast!!  I got a new one cooking up my sleeve that I want to try.  The calories will be higher, but there going to be good and healthy!!

These look good, but you know I need my topping!!!

Almost to pretty to eat, key word, almost!!!  These pancakes are light and fluffy, filled with fresh strawberries.  There good frozen too!  I freeze them, take them out in the morning and pop in the microwave for about 1 minutes or so, tastes as fresh as when I made them!!

Vanilla Strawberry Pancakes

Ingredients:

1/3 Cup of Greek Vanilla Yogurt (I used Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt)

2 egg Whites

1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

1/3 Cup White Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 tsp. Baking Soda

1/2 tsp. Sugar

1 dash salt

1/2 cup strawberries, diced

Optional Additional Topping add 2 strawberries, sliced in between pancakes.

Directions:

Mix greek yogurt, egg whites & vanilla extract into a small bowl

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, sugar, & salt

Combine and whisk till evenly mixed

Fold in strawberries

Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray and place 1/4-cup batter onto non-stick skillet and cook till bubbles start appearing through the top of the pancake and then flip. NOTE: Cook on medium heat and I flattened out my batter with the spatula to cook more evenly.

About 1-2 minutes on each side

Makes 7 pancakes

I hope you have enjoyed my pancake week, as much as I have creating them.  I really do love my pancakes and there not bad for you like people think, when you think pancakes.  So I hope you give them a try and let me know what you think and how they turned out.  I do notice different brand names of yogurt, flour ect… make the pancake come out a little different, but one thing they all have in common is they taste good!!  I’ve been experiencing with different flours and yogurt brands and I do notice a difference in the look, but the taste is the same.  Which is super great in my book!  🙂

Have a great weekend!!  Do something fun!  I think tonight Hubby and I are going to have a date night!  Yah!!!  Something for me to look forward too!  See you tomorrow!!!

      Oh you must! It seems lately that pancakes have become the weekend breakfast tradition.

  8. I could honestly eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner – of course I might start looking like a pancake! 🙂 These look wonderful as have all yours!

  9. These babies look fabulous. Now I want a tripod!

    I love how you incorporated yogurt and wheat flour – makes it a bit more healthy than traditional pancakes.

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      The tripod is fun, it’s a mini one and I think I only take pictures of syrup dribbling on my pancakes with it! They don’t taste healthy, but are! My Husband doesn’t like wheat or yogurt and he loves them!
