Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes

Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes – Sweet homemade & fluffy pancakes, bursting with fresh strawberries in every bite!


Your guests’ tastebuds will think they’ve died and gone to a tropical paradise.


You don’t have to tell anyone that such a beautiful and delicious breakfast is actually healthy! What they don’t know won’t hurt them.


Just stir all ingredients together in a bowl, ladle onto a greased skillet, and flip as soon as they start to bubble.

You can add some shredded coconut or mini chocolate chips if you wish, and I recommend topping the pancakes with homemade whipped cream!


I linked my favorite vegan-friendly whipped cream recipe below in the recipe, but feel free to use coconut whipped cream or even your favorite store-bought whipped cream if you prefer.



Their fatness rivals my Blueberry Pie Pancakes.

And I didn’t try to shape the one above into a heart; it just happened to fall that way!

Strawberry Pancakes - Ingredients: 1/2 cup strawberries, 1/3 cup rolled oats, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 tsp... Full recipe: @choccoveredkt

    They look so pretty Katie! Can’t wait to try them 🙂

    I like chocolate chip pancakes best! Or maybe blueberries. Or just plain. It’s all good! 😉

  2. [email protected] says

    How delicious! I had some blueberry muffin pancakes this weekend, I love how quick and simple they are! My boyfriend hates pancakes but I was able to whip myself up a batch in the time it took him to toast a bagel and pour cereal. Plus single-serve means no waste!! Love it.

  3. [email protected] of Sugar Free says

    LOVE pancakes……I’m even making some for dinner tonight! Know what? We should have a “pancake day” where you make pancakes for breakfast lunch and dinner….or better yet-a pancake week where you eat a different flavored pancake for every meal….maybe I’ve gone a bit overboard….

  4. Tara says

    eh, I’m not a huge fan of pancakes, but if the craving strikes they can’t be beat! I’ve never tried strawberries in my pancakes! I’ve had them as a topping, but I think they would taste even better cooked right in. or maybe with banana too for strawberry banana pancakes! Oh that would be fabulous!

  5. kaila @ healthy helper! says

    OMG these look so thick and doughy! And I have been craving some strawberry shortcake like a mad woman! Must make these next time I am wanting some pancakes…..which is LIKE NOW!

  6. BroccoliHut says

    I’m a huge fan of strawberry + coconut, so I might make these with a little drizzle of coconut butter:)

  7. Jenny$1983 says

    Today I ate the Hot Fudge Oatmeal for breakfast, ate these for tea, I’m about to eat a Mini Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Muffin, and I’ve just made another attempt at the Voluminous Oatmeal trick (fingers crossed! 😀 ) for either your Holiday Twist Oatmeal or the Raspberry Truffle one for breakfast tomorrow; I’m not sure what I used to eat before I found your blog 😉

    These pancakes are ridiculicious = ridiculously delicious: I’ve had to come up with a new neologism, as I thought your Blueberry Pie Pancakes were out of this world, but it turns out that these are even better and “yumlicious” just won’t do any more! Yes, I am quite, quite insane. Are you scared yet? 🙂

  8. Lorin says

    I just had this for breakfast and it was really good! I topped the pancakes with some cottage cheese and more strawberries. One of the pancakes, I put on some of the gooey brownie (that I made last night from your brownie recipe) and it was awesome!

  9. Hamish says

    These actually look amazing. So amazing, I think I might go and have a go at them now, I’ll let you know how they turn out!

    (Oh and hi, I’m Hamish, I started reading your blog pretty recently, first comment :D)

  10. Jess says

    I made these today and they were SO yum! I actually think adding that 1/8th of a tsp of salt makes a difference because the had a really nice flavour! I topped mine with some fresh thinly sliced pear and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Thanks for the recipe!

  11. Marianne says

    Don’t hate me…I’m so not a pancake person. Waffles are okay. But French toast is my true breakfast love…when I have time for what I would deem a fancy breakfast. Mmmm, French toast. But your pancakes do look delicious – if you cooked me some, I’d definitely enjoy them.

  12. Annie says

    Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE THIS RECIPE. Seriously, I wake up in the morning craving these pancakes; they’re such a healthy and delicious alternative to the regular white flour/butter ones. I made them with blueberries this morning and they were perfect. Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂

  13. Susan says

    I woke up this morning, looked in my fridge, saw strawberries that were about to go bad, and thought of this post on your blog. I just made them and doubled the recipe cause I wanted leftovers, but these are so amazing there might not be any leftovers!! WOW!! Thank you for making my day!!

  14. Anonymous says

    I would just like to say I made these this morning and they tasted so yummy! I added chocolate chips to the mixture (because you can never have enough chocolate 😉 ) and I ate mine with honey; I agree possibly THE best pancakes ever. I’m definitely making them again! Probably tomorrow morning! 😀

  15. M says

    I made theese today. My sister was home so I made som for her to, first I was a little scared. I’ve never made on of your pancakes. I’ve never made 100% whole wheat pancakes. And I’ve never made pancakes without eggs!

    But I love american pancakes (more than the crepes we eat in Sweden), I love 100% whole wheat Not Guilty chip cookies so I decided to try.

    I doubled the recipe and it yielded 7 2tbsp sized pancakes. I was first worried that it would’nt fill me or my sister up. Like 3-4 pancakes each. But they were super-fat and both of us were really full after the meal.

    I made theese with ww flour, I did not measure the strawberries I just put in some, dairy milk and no oil (I never put it in pancakes). Then I served them with Turkisk Yoghurt (it’s like Greek), strawberries and sirap. YUM!

    I’m going to try the strawberry shortcake muffins single serving later today! 🙂

  16. Maegan says

    It was “breakfast for dinner” night at our house! I just made these using whole wheat flour and fresh cherries instead of strawberries!! I also used almond extract as I thought it would be nice with the cherry. They were so delicious!! Thanks Katie!!! I love your blog SO much!!!

  17. Monica says

    Hi Katie!! First, I LOVE your website!! I just found it a few days ago and now I am ADDICTED!! Seriously!! It is SOO great and I am going crazy (in a good way…) trying all your recipes!!
    Second, I had a question… I am not vegan, and lots of your recipes (including this one) says to use non-dairy milk, almond milk or soy milk, but I don’t have any of those, and can’t spend the money buying them when I have regular milk in the frige… ANYWAY, what I am trying to say is, do you know if your recipes would still work with regular milk?
    Well, keep up the good work!! You are a GENIOUS!!! I wish you could just come and live with me! I would be in HEAVEN!!!!

  18. Monica says

    Wonderful!! Thanks so much!!! I also had a quick question… I see lots of your recipes have an AMAZING looking chocolate sauce on top and was wondering if you had a recipe for that? It looks SOOO GOOD!!!! In fact, my mom was begging me to find it so we could use it!! lol

  19. Monica says

    Thank you sooo much!!! I’ve actually tried this recipe before and though I love it (it tastes like really dark chocolate!!!) it never EVER works like yours!! After I make it, it has the texture of water, and after stirring it forever, I tried to refrigerate it, but it turns into a solid bar!! But now I have a amazing dark chocolate bar!!! lol
    I really can’t say enough how wonderful and amazing you are!! Me and my mom (and sometimes my brother) have been trying SOO many recipes and LOVE them!!! It is soo fun and a new way to eat things that are normally so boring!! (oatmeal) Thank you sooo much!!!

  20. Monica says

    That probably is it. You are so smart!! Coconut oil is soo tempermental!! lol Anyway, it still tastes GREAT!! I am TOTALY addicted!!!
    (oh, btw, you were saying how you are a chatter box and really talkitive, SO AM I!!! Oh my gosh, I can’t shut up!!! I am known among my friends as “the girl who never stops talking” lol!!! =D I have only met one person in my life who talked more then me!!! So, it’s nice to know that other people talk a lot too!!! Because almost all of my friends are quitish!! Maybe it is becuase I am talking so much they can’t get a word in edge wise, but still…… LOL)

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Hahaha it probably IS because there isn’t enough room for them to talk with you around ;).

      My sister had a very talkative friend with a VERY quiet brother… my mom never could figure out how they came from the same family, but I said it made perfect sense: if he had been talkative too, can you imagine their house? Or their poor parents?!
