Makes about 14 pancakes.

Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 15 min

Longer days and warmer weather means berries have arrived! Fresh summer strawberries are a sweet addition to these easy pancakes. Whip up a batch on the weekend to enjoy through the week for quick breakfasts. Mixing whole wheat flour with all-purpose flour is an easy way to bump up the fibre in your recipes.


1 cup whole wheat flour 250 mL
1/2 cup all purpose flour 125 mL
2 tbsp granulated sugar 30 mL
2 tsp baking powder 10 mL
a pinch ground cinnamon a pinch
1 1/2 cups skim milk 375 mL
2 tbsp canola oil 30 mL
2 tsp vanilla 10 mL
1 cup diced fresh strawberries 250 mL


Step 1
In a large bowl, whisk together whole wheat and all purpose flours, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon.

Step 2
In another bowl, whisk together milk with egg, oil and vanilla. Pour over flour mixture and stir to combine. Stir in strawberries.

Step 3
Spray griddle or nonstick skillet lightly with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat. Using 60 mL (1/4 cup) measuring cup, pour batter onto hot griddle. Cook for about 2 minutes or until bubbles start to appear on top. Flip over and cook for another minute or until light golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter.


This is a fun recipe to make with kids. Little chefs can help to mix up the pancake batter. Older kids can help to cook the pancakes. 
Switch it up by asking your family which favourite seasonal fruit they want to sub in for strawberries.

Make now and enjoy later. Layer pancakes between wax or parchment paper and freeze for up to 2 weeks. Pop in the toaster to enjoy for a quick breakfast or warm through in the microwave.
