I am so excited to share these delectable Strawberry Oat Chocolate Chip Pancakes today with you today. They are RI.DIC.U.LOUS.L.Y. good!
For starters, they have dark chunks of chocolate nestled in them. Need I say more? Second, they’re extra creamy thanks to two magical ingredients, Greek yogurt and oats. Anytime you combine them, you get a nice fluffy batter. Perfect for pancake making. Last but not least, they’re made with have fresh, sweet strawberries.
I’m just convinced dark chocolate and strawberries belong together. Actually, any berry and dark chocolate are a great match in my opinion, but strawberries and dark are a combo to lust over. In fact, lately it’s not uncommon that I’ll have a bowl of strawberries with a few dark chocolate chips after dinner. The two together are the perfect balance of sweet and tart flavors!
This recipe is similar to those Apple cinnamon Greek yogurt pancakes I made last fall. I love that batter because it’s so versatile. For the Strawberry Oat Chocolate Chip Pancakes, I simply swapped the apples for strawberries and added dark chocolate.
The difference with this recipe is that I blended fresh strawberries into the batter. By the way, frozen would work well in this too. Just be sure to thaw the berries first! I do want you to beware that when you blend the strawberries into the batter, it turns it into a pretty pink color.
Well, at least I think it’s pretty. “Pink is my signature color” (<–name that movie)! Come to think of it, I should have named these pretty in pink pancakes. The color does fade a little after you cook the pancakes so if you’re adverse to pink don’t worry. They are left with a light tint. They really are adorable and delicious too!
I’ve been waiting all week for the weekend to get here so I could make another batch of these Strawberry Oat Chocolate Chip Pancakes! Being away last weekend, meant I didn’t get my usual pancakes made for the week so I’ve been feeling a little deprived.
All I could think about all week was sinking my teeth into the rich dark chocolate and sweet strawberries in these pancakes. I mean who wouldn’t want chocolate for breakfast?
Strawberry Oat Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Heat a skillet to medium-high heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray. To a blender or food processor, add all ingredients and process until batter is smooth. It should be slightly runny.
To the skillet, add 1/4 cup of batter at a time to form a pancake. Cook 3-4 minutes until pancake begins to bubble then flip with a spatula and cook another 2-3 minutes on the other side.
Place pancakes on a cooling rack as you cook remainder of the batter. Serve and top with more fresh berries and dark chocolate.
Keep pancakes in an air tight container for up to a week.
