Valentine Strawberry Heart Pancakes

Valentine Strawberry Heart Pancakes from Weelicious

My kids constantly ask me for pancakes before school in the morning. However I've found that most quick-and-easy box mixes are loaded with unnecessary and unwanted ingredients while the better made brands are pretty expensive. I don't have the time to make pancakes from scratch on weekends, let alone during the week, so I took it upon myself a few years ago to create my own homemade, healthy, quick-and-easy whole wheat pancake mix. I keep a big batch of it in a big, oversized, air-tight glass container in my pantry to keep it dry and fresh, and whenever I get that last minute request for pancakes all I need to grab is some milk and an egg to make my little ones happy.

Valentine Strawberry Heart Pancakes from Weelicious

When I want to add a little bit of extra love to my flapjacks, I add a sliced strawberry in the shape of a heart in the middle of each one. It may seem like no big deal, but it tends to have an affect on my family. Luckily no fancy knife skills are required because after you stem a strawberry and then slice it lengthwise, it naturally looks like a heart. Can you think of anything better to serve up for your kids or loved one on Valentine's Day morning than this?

Valentine Strawberry Heart Pancakes (makes 15 pancakes)

Prep Time: 5 mins Cook Time: 5 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 large strawberries, cored, sliced lengthwise into 4-5 pieces to resemble hearts

Preparation

1. Whisk the egg, buttermilk and oil in a large bowl.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

3. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.

4. Heat a large pan or griddle over medium heat and grease with butter or oil.

5. Pour about 2 tablespoons of the pancake mixture onto the griddle, gently press a strawberry slice onto the top and cook for 2 minutes.

6. Flip the pancakes and cook an additional 1-2 minutes.



Note: If you do not have buttermilk you can make it by adding 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice to 1 cup of milk. This mix also works beautifully with any type of milk you prefer!

    I love your whole wheat pancake mix - and so does my 3 year old daughter! I keep a big stash of it in the pantry and we make pancakes together on the weekends... then freeze so she can eat them during the week. And I made these pancakes for my fiance and he didn't even know they were whole wheat until I told him.

    Hi. I make a double batch and make a lot at once. I cool them, wrap indivually in wax paper and freeze in a large zip loc bag. When my kids want pancakes, I zap one in the microwave for about 20 seconds and it's ready to go! Freeze method works great with waffles - but I don't microwave them, I put them in toaster.

    I will be making your strawberry pancakes this year! I made the beet juice ones last Valentine's Day. Yummy!
    Keep coming up with great ideas!

    Can these be made dairy free in any way?

    • Julie Stankiewicz

      To make it dairy I would substitute 1/2 of a banana for 1 egg and use soy or almond milk. You can use the same tip at the bottom to make it like buttermilk.

    I noticed in some of your recipes you use canola oil and vegetable oil. Do you use these oils often? I'm trying to stay away from GMOs but find it somewhat difficult cause they are in so many things my family loves.

    • Catherine McCord

      I use canola oil frequently. I buy mine from Trader Joe's as it is GMO free! Another brand that is GMO free is Spectrum. I find that at higher end grocery stores and online!

    I made these this morning and Im seriously never buying boxed mix again. My 3 year old daughter just loves pancakes and asks for them just about every day. She was eating them faster then I was making them :) I changed the recipe up a bit though. I omit the sugar and used a tbsp of pure maple syrup and added pure vanilla extract. We made raspberry and blueberry ones too, but the strawberry ones were the prettiest. Thank you ;)

    I like these except for the baking soda I don't understand why you are using it most pancake recipes just use baking powder I don't like the baking soda taste and I used he 1/2 tsp like it says it just leaves a funny feeling in my mouth but they are very yummy love the strawberry idea will make these again with no baking soda

    How I Got My Ex Husband Back..Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 7 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a post that Dr Alama can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Alama home of solution that really works.

    Finding out I was GENITAL HERPES AND HEPATITIS B wasn’t easy But as time has passed, I have slowly come to terms with my GENITAL HERPES AND HEPATITIS B, status and try to tackle it with a positive attitude. In mid-2012 I became quite ill. I developed persistent flu-like symptoms, headaches, a nagging cough and sores that wouldn’t heal. My skin felt as if it was crawling, my legs ached, I felt nauseous and lost weight. Then exhaustion hit. It was an indescribable tiredness and no matter how much I slept I never felt rested. In 2013 I was hospitalized when my CD4 count nosedived to 86 (Hepatitis B, Herpes-negative people have a CD4 count of between 700 and 1,000; a CD4 count of below 200 is considered dangerously low). It was a terrible time.

    Thank you for your miracle Dr Patrick This article is dedicated to the Dr Patrick. I have been married with my wife for 6 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Dr called Patrick. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. Also he was there every moment until i got my happiness back and he also provides spells that cures impotence, bareness, diseases such as HIV/AID, Herpes, Cancer E.T.C.

    My Dear friends online, My name is sander And i live in USA, New York, I have to give this miraculous testimony, which is so unbelievable until now. I had a problem with my Ex husband 2 years ago, which lead to our break up. I was not myself again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too his name is Dr bello, I email the spell caster and i told him my problem and i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happen, less than two days my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me i was so happy to have him back to me. The most interesting part of the story is that am pregnant. Thanks to Dr bello for saving my marriage and for also saving others own too. Continue your good work, If you are interested to contact the great spell caster email address: [email protected] or contact him on whatsApp +2348147271779.
