Incredible Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes

January 19, 2013

Treat yourself to a stack of these incredible strawberry shortcake pancakes.  If you are feeling guilty just looking at the picture - don't!  These pancakes are actually good for you.  They are made using 0% Greek yogurt, whole wheat flour, and egg whites.  Also, dried strawberries are mixed into the batter while fresh berries top the pancakes.  You can allow yourself to indulge a little bit by adding a dollop of whipped cream.

Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes



3/4 cup 0% Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup Egg Whites
1/2 cup Whole-Wheat Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Almond Extract
1/2 tsp Sugar
Dash of Salt
1/3 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries
1 cup Strawberries – frozen or fresh (I used frozen)
1 tsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. Fat Free Whip Cream (optional)
Cooking Spray


Mix Greek Yogurt, Egg Whites & Almond Extract into a small bowl

In a separate bowl combine Flour, Baking Soda, Sugar, & Salt

Combine and whisk till evenly mixed

Fold in Dried Strawberries

In a sauce pan or small pot add frozen or fresh strawberries and 1tsp. sugar and cook until thawed and juicy about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Spray Skillet with cooking spray and place 1/4-cup batter onto 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

Top with strawberry Sauce and Maple Syrup, and add a dollop of fat free whip cream.

Makes 2 servings, 8 pancakes total, 4 pancakes each.
