Vanilla Strawberry Pancakes


Things that I love:

my handsome husband
goooey grilled cheeses 
goldendoodle puppies
long flowy maxi dresses
live music
warm weather
sunsets
foreign countries
salty snacks
traveling the world, with my hubby, in a long flowy maxi dress :)
yoga
my family and my other family - my girlfriends
the first cup of coffee of the day
fireplace fires
champagne toasts (or prosecco, my favorite of lately)
all things mini - whisks, baking pans, espresso cups, etc... I am such a sucker for these!


And these moist and fluffy Vanilla Strawberry Pancakes.  I made these for my Valentine this morning...  He loved it!  What are you making for yours?

Ingredients

1 cup of white whole wheat flour
1 cup of skim milk
1 egg
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp organic vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp table salt
2 tbsp brown sugar
3/4 cup slice strawberries

Method

In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Add the wet ingredients, the milk, egg, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract.  Fold in strawberries.  Heat a saute pan or griddle to medium high heat.  In batches, add pancake batter to pan and let cook for 3-5 minutes or until batter bubbles.  Flip over for another 2-3 minutes.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar and fresh strawberries.  Happy Valentines Day!  Hope your day is full of love and laughter! Xoxo

Tip: Use a 1/4 measuring cup to create the perfect sized pancakes

    1. Hi

      Today, I?m back with more metabolism-boosting tips from Metabolic Cooking authors Dave Ruel & Karine Losier

      This time with NINE fat incinerating salad dressing ingredients:

      All Natural Dijon Mustard can actually have a profound effect on metabolism, even at rest, as well as improving overall digestion and nutrient utiliization.

      Apple Cider Vinegar aids in weightloss by detoxifying the liver, increasing metabolism, and supressing hunger levels!

      White and Red Wine Vinegar have been shown to improve blood sugar levels, reduce insulin, and slow digestion.

      And if that wasn't enough, other herbs and spices such as ginger, garlic, lemon, cayenne, basil, parsley, and thyme have all been shown to have significant metabolism-boosting properties as they stimulate your taste buds to boot!

      Fact is, when you learn how to cook with the right ingredients, you can really begin to enjoy both the fat-burning properties and the ultimate flavor of the foods you use to slim your waist.

      And that's exactly what Dave and Karine have put together in the Metabolic Cooking series -- more than 250 mouth-watering, fat-annihilating recipes for you to choose from. And of course, they also have many fat burning salad dressing recipe!

  2. I love pancakes for breakfast. I've been looking for some new recipes. I had no idea there was such a thing as white whole wheat flour before reading this post. I can't wait to try these

  3. I love pancakes for breakfast too! White whole wheat flour is great, I really like King Arthur's. It is much milder than whole wheat flour, and a lot better for you than all-purpose flour.

  5. Do you know how many calories are in a recipe or serving?

  6. Just a thing... In your recipe it says baking soda, and in your directions it says baking powder. Is it baking soda? I guess it probably wouldn't matter too much either way, just curious.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I believe I used baking powder!! Thanks for the catch!

    I am also not sure how many calories, but a lot of people use http://www.sparkrecipes.com/ to get a calorie counts in recipes, hope that helps :)

  10. I loooooove the vanilla in these! They were quite delicious this morning. Next time, I'm going to scale back the milk by a little bit, but otherwise, it was beautiful.

  11. I've made these a few times and they are great! I have done exactly as above and they were perfect (fluffy, vanilla-y, mmmmm...) and have also added 1/3 cup of oats that I soak in the milk and then scaled the flour back a little bit, only egg white, blueberries instead of strawberries, soy vanilla milk, etc. This is a great base that you can adapt so easily. Thank you!
