An easy recipe for the BEST fluffy strawberry white chocolate chip pancakes! Made with simple ingredients: oat flour, almond meal, whole wheat flour and coconut.
Strawberries. White chocolate chips. Pancakes. ‘Nuff said.
But not… because I’m really a rambly type of gal.
Okay, I’ll admit, I’m the first to beeline for the darkest of dark chocolate desserts in that beloved, bright sweets case (side admission: I have a strange addiction to alliteration, alright?). But years of being just downright greedy and having so many loved ones who luuuuurve strawberries has brought me to this point:
Mile-high stacks of strawberry white chocolate chip pancakes.
It’s a high point, I’ll admit. Like, one mile high. Ahem.
The thing is, I have a sister (and a mom for that matter) that LOVE strawberries and white chocolate. If you give them these two things, you can get them to do anything. Please don’t tell them I told you this when you get them to do said thing.
The sister in question, Jenny, is actually referred to as “Jammy.” As in, strawberry jam. Yep. Didn’t I tell you? She’s an official Strawberry Luvah 4 Lyfe. Well, anyway, like four years ago, she asked me to make strawberry pancakes. Now don’t wince just yet, it didn’t take me this freaking long to make them. (Is that what you think of me???)
Since that time, long, long ago, I’ve made countless pancakes, strawberry everything and then got sassy and made strawberry white chocolate everything. Just- don’t get me started on the Birthday Strawberry Jam White Chocolate Chip Cookies.
They are indulgent.
But now. Now is the time for these babies. They are the best, for so many reasons:
- They’re fluffy yet satisfying
- A perfect balance of sweet and just a bit tangy
- Lightly crispy on the outside, but so soft on the inside
- Full of ingredients that won’t give you a sweet hangover in the morning:
- Oat flour + white whole wheat flour
- Almond meal
- Unsweetened coconut
- And, spoiler alert: super easy to make
These pancakes are so easy to make, delicious and sweets-craving-satisfying that you’ll never go back to any other pancake recipe. Jammy hasn’t. 🙂 Unless you’re totally in the mood for a paleo treat! In which case, you’ve got to try Noshtastic’s Paleo Pancakes! Just remember to swap the eggs for flax eggs and honey for maple syrup to make them vegan. Nom nom nom.
So go on, give these a whirl. Your family, friends and fellow Strawberry Luvahs 4 Lyfe will thank you.
- ¼ cup white whole wheat flour
- ¼ cup almond meal
- ½ cup oat flour
- ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cane sugar
- ¾ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup milk
- 1 modified flax egg (1⅓ tablespoons ground flax + 3 tablespoons water)
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
- 1 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
- ½ cup white chocolate chips
- ¾ cup diced strawberries
- First, make your flax egg in a small bowl. Cover bowl and allow to set in the fridge for a few minutes.
- Whisk all of the dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Add in wet ingredients. Whisk a few times, quickly incorporating the ingredients. Be careful not to overmix.
- Gently fold in chocolate chips. With just a few strokes, fold in strawberries.
- Preheat the oven to 225F degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil. Coat with nonstick spray. Set aside.
- Set a skillet to medium-low heat. Coat with nonstick spray. Scoop ¼ cup batter into skillet, making sure to space out pancakes. When several bubbles of air rise up and pop in the pancake, it’s time to flip. Test one pancake for doneness by flipping- this will give you a good idea of how long each pancake takes. If the pancake falls apart, it’s too soon. If the pancake flips easily and is golden brown with a crispy surface, it’s perfect!
- In between each round of making pancakes, make sure to carefully wipe off the skillet with a damp cloth, removing all crumbs. Then, coat with nonstick spray.
- Put pancakes on baking sheet and place into the oven, to keep warm until ready.
