I shared this yummy recipe over at A Silly Girl’s Life Last Month! If you didn’t catch it there, I hope you really enjoy this fruity breakfast!
My family just LOVES pancakes! The bigger, fluffier and fruitier they are, the better! There is something so comforting about the smell of pancakes cooking on the griddle that calls everyone to the kitchen in the morning no matter how early it is. I like to make pancake batter on Saturday evening and store it in the refrigerator for our special Sunday breakfasts. Having it made ahead of time and not feeling overwhelmed in the kitchen helps me enjoy breakfast too! With eggs, bacon or sausage and pancakes for breakfast, everyone is usually too full to eat anything but a small snack before dinner that evening. A big breakfast on Sunday is something that everyone in our family looks forward to each week.
These moist, fluffy Strawberry Oatmeal Pancakes have fresh, juicy pieces of strawberry in every bite. Old fashioned oats, buttermilk and whole wheat flour give these pancakes a wonderful texture, while the fresh berries and a hint of cinnamon round out this delicious, warm breakfast. These pancakes can be topped with fresh whipped cream, maple syrup or even both! To be honest, they really don’t even need any toppings. My toddler has been known to eat these plain with her hands! If you have never used oatmeal in your pancakes before you should give it a try. The oatmeal not only makes the pancakes a little more filling, but they add a nice, nutty flavor. If you like to “freezer cook”, these can also be made ahead of time, frozen, taken out individually and warmed up in the microwave for breakfast. With summer right around the corner, how great would it be to have some pancakes ready to go on a busy morning for breakfast? I know I will be making a few batches just for the freezer because every little bit of freezer cooking helps with a large family like ours!
Strawberries are everywhere this time of year in the grocery stores, or at your local fruit stand, so grab a few quarts this weekend and surprise your family with this yummy breakfast!
