IMG_2529-002

Strawberries and bananas are baked right into the batter of these pancakes. A yogurt banana sauce fills in for maple syrup to top these fruity flapjacks. This recipe comes to us from Phnewfula of Turtle Pie’s Drool Session.

Serves 4

For the topping:

  • 1 banana, peeled
  • ½ cup low fat vanilla yogurt

For the pancakes:

  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 3/4 cups nonfat milk
  • 1/4 cup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 6 strawberries, trimmed of their tops
  • a little oil, for the skillet
  • sliced strawberries, for garnish*
  • sliced bananas, for garnish*

*optional

For the topping:

Puree banana and vanilla yogurt in a blender or food processor. Set aside.

To make the pancakes:

In a large bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In a separate medium bowl beat the egg with the oil.

Place milk, banana and strawberries in a blender or food processor and puree. There should be about 1 ¼ cups of fruit milk batter after blending. Add more strawberries if there’s less than 1 ¼ cups liquid.

Pour the fruit milk batter into the bowl with the beaten eggs and oil. Mix until combined.

Add the wet ingredients to flour sugar mixture. Stir together to fully incorporate, but do not over mix.

Prepare a skillet with a light layer of oil. Place over medium-high heat. When skillet is preheated drop ¼ cup of pancake batter per pancake on the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until bubbles start to form on top. Flip and cook on the other side until pancake is fully cooked. Repeat until you are out of batter.

Drizzle pancakes with the banana yogurt topping, sprinkle with sliced strawberries and bananas and enjoy!
