These strawberry pancakes are a healthy alternative to traditional breakfast pancakes. With ingredients like chia seeds, oat flour and fresh strawberries, they offer nutritious benefits without sacrificing taste.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups coarsely chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded orange peel
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup oat flour or oat bran
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds or flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (see Tip)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups fat-free milk
  • ¼ cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • ¾ cup whipped Greek cream cheese (see Tip), softened
  • 1 tablespoon 1 to 2 tablespoons orange juice

Directions

  • Step 1 In a medium bowl combine strawberries, orange peel and 1/4 cup orange juice. Cover and let stand for 20 to 30 minutes to blend flavors, stirring occasionally.
  • Step 2 In a large bowl stir together flour, seeds, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl use a fork to combine milk, egg, and oil. Add the egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).
  • Step 3 For each pancake, pour 2 tablespoons batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. Spread batter to an even layer if necessary. Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown; turn over when surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry. Keep pancakes warm in a 200 degrees F oven while making the rest.
  • Step 4 To serve, in a small bowl combine cream cheese and orange juice; spread evenly over pancakes. Top with strawberries.

Tips

Tips: We do not recommend using a sugar substitute for this recipe.

If you cannot find the Greek cream cheese, make your own. In a small bowl stir together 1/2 cup softened reduced-fat tub-style cream cheese with 1/4 cup nonfat Greek plain yogurt until smooth.
