This is a great way to sneak in some extra fruit into your breakfast -- whether it be for yourself or for the kids! The strawberries add beautiful color to the pancakes and an extra sweetness. Also great if half a banana is added to the mix. And the topping options are endless! Serve alongside maple syrup, butter, fresh strawberries, blueberries, banana, etc., and enjoy! Brown sugar can be sprinkled on top of the completed pancakes to add a crunchy texture.

  • Place the still-frozen strawberries into a blender, and pulse several times to break the berries up into small pieces. Mix the chopped strawberries and the frozen blueberries into the batter until the fruit is well distributed.

  • Grease the griddle with butter, and pour about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto the griddle. Allow the bottom side to brown and the batter to form air holes; sprinkle the uncooked side with brown sugar, if desired, and flip to brown the other side.

Cook's Note

Brown sugar can also be tossed with banana slices,and cooked on a greased medium-heat pan to create warm, candied banana slices to top the berry pancakes.

I doubled this recipe used my own whole wheat pancake mix and used buttermilk instead of water. Because my mix was whole wheat I did need a little more liquid than what was called for so I added a half cup extra buttermilk for a double recipe. I used a really great no sugar berry blend that I bought at Walmart (it's actually the Walmart brand). I just kind of guessed on the cup-age that was the strawberries and just poured what I thought was right of the berry blend to equal twenty strawberries (again double recipe). I didn't bother sprinkling the pancakes with sugar that seemed unnecessary to me and the recipe did say it was optional. This was quite good my husband didn't even complain that the pancakes were whole wheat this time! This was very easy to make I was able to make them a little healthier and use more homemade ingredients and less sugar which I appreciated. Out of a double recipe two pancakes remain. My boys really liked these! Read More

I used fresh not frozen berries and made my own gluten free pancake mix. My pancakes could have used more moisture (when using different than wheat flour that can be expected!) but the flavor was excellent! These are easy to make! Read More

so easy and perfect to make! I used pancake mix water and an egg. Once finished we added a little cool whip and ate them like roll-ups. Read More
