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

    I just made these and they are soooooooo delicious!! These and your blueberry pie pancakes are awesome!! Definitely the best pancakes I’ve ever had!! Now, I’ve noticed that there’s a section missing from your recipes…how about waffles???? Girl, you’ve gotta make some of pancakes’ bff’s! I can only imagine how delish chocolate covered waffles would be!! Thanks for all of your wonderful recipes!!!

  2. Ann says

    I just discovered your blog over the weekend and have been paralyzed with indecision as to which recipes to try first, they all look so delish! So I started with a smoothie and yesterday tried these pancakes (breakfast is my favorite meal) and loved them! I used the cheesecake sauce sweetened with a little agave and some maple syrup (and doubled the recipe after tasting) and my daughter declared these “5 out of 5”. I even made it gluten free and no one missed the wheat. I used the all purpose flour mix from gluten free goddess: 2 parts sorghum: 2 parts potato starch: 1 part almond flour: little xanthum gum.
    Thanks for sharing your delicious ideas!

      Aww Ann, that makes me SO happy!! And thanks for leaving the gluten-free suggestion. I try to provide gf options for my recipes as often as possible, but I admit I need a LOT more practice when it comes to knowing about gf baking!

    Hey Katie! I’m currently living in Finland on an exchange year, and i’m always looking for recipes that will help keep off the usual exchange-student pounds….your website is awesome for those! these pancakes were incredible and my host family was amazed. thank you so much 🙂

    Can you put normal quaker oats in this recipe instead of rolled? I don’t have rolled oats and I’m dying to make these!!

  5. Lauren says

    My tummy is a very, very happy tummy, Katie! I just polished off my plate of these beauties (topped with a few dark chocolate chips, of course)! I left out the oil and didn’t miss a thing. They were just perfect as is, and so filling. Absolutely perfect for my pancake Sunday! I even added a little cinnamon (I just can’t stop adding it to things lately).

  6. Trieste says

    I’m sure you’ve thought of/tried this, but I make these as chocolate-covered-strawberry pancakes by subbing cocoa for the rolled oats. Light, fluffy, sweet, and SO happifying!

  7. Christina Oh says

    omg just had these for breakfast and let me tell you firsthand…they were delicious! i multiplied the recipe by three so that the rest of my family could have some too..they couldn’t believe that this didn’t have any egg or butter in them! they tasted sooo good<3 i was a little worried at first because the batter wasnt as liquidy as pancake batter usually is.. they don't taste like your normal brunch place pancakes but they still taste amazing! it's a small price to pay for such a delicicious but low fat pancake~

    i made mine with whole wheat flour and i had to stop myself after three hehe 😉 i probably could have eaten the whole batch! i had a little maple syrup on the side and yummm..i can't wait to make them again!

  8. Kristyn says

    I’m planning on making these for valentines day breakfast! …..I’m actually between this and your apple pie pancakes…Help me decide? Also- What is the whipped topping in the photos? If I made these I would want to have some sort of whipped topping for sure and regular whipped cream is not an option (that stuff is so gross to me)….loving your recipes!

  9. Kate J says

    So i just made these and they are DELICIOUS!!! I have to say I haven’t ever baked with coconut oil before and mine came in solid form, am I supposed to warm it up first to make it liquid or leave it a solid?

  10. Nikki A. says

    THESE ARE A GIFT FROM GOD! you are seriously amazing. i make one of your recipes everyday and have never been disappointed. thank you for being awesome!!!!

    This may be a silly question, but could I substitute regular dairy milk instead of mom dairy milk in your recipes? Love your blog, I could spend hours on it!! Hope you get a cookbook soon! (:

  13. Paula @ All Things Moms says

    Just the fact that you would even think these might be as good as chocolate chip cookied dough pancakes is enough to convince me- I’m adding them to my breakfast menu next week! For the record I will also be adding that Hot Fudge Oatmeal- Yummy 🙂 Thanks for sharing!!

  14. Caity says

    I absolutely love love LOVE your recipes!! So perfect for me in the am when I want something indulgent, yet low in calories and quick.. YET- SOOO YUMMY!
    My only problem (if, you can even call it that) is that I always have problems with your pancakes 🙁 I don’t know what I’m possibly doing wrong, but mine always turn out so eensyweensy compared to the pictures of yours. I’m planning on making the strawberry shortcake pancakes for my boyfriend’s birthday brekky, and I fear I will have the same problem, and want to double the recipe! Defeating the whole purpose of the low calorie end I enjoy so much 🙁 what did you use to measure these pancakes!? In specific, as in cups or!?

  15. Melissa says

    I just tried this. It’s delicious! Thanks! So far, I’ve tried three of your recipes and loved them all!

  16. Katie says

    I made these for Easter breakfast this morning, and I omitted the strawberries for half the recipe (added them in after half the batch was cooked so that there would be options for the family). Even the ones without strawberries were tasty! Thanks for all your great recipes. I’ve tried several and they’re all great!

  17. LaNita says

    Just made these delicious morning treats but sub flax meal for oats, used half raspberry/strawberries!! WoW! the raspberries created a fragrance and taste that I have never had in pancakes before! Great recipe – please try with raspberries too!

    Continued thanks!

  18. Kat Creamer says

    You rocked my taste bud’s with the blueberry pancakes with cheesecake sauce. My husband insists that it should be called vanilla ice cream sauce. I am going to try the strawberry one’s by myself. You know, just in case they are too good to share ; ) I had to go buy coconut oil just so I could make these pancakes. I spent, easily, 30 minutes searching threw the grocery store to find it! If these pancakes taste as good as I think they will, it will totally be worth it.
    I do have a question/favor to ask. Is there any way you can make a “printer friendly” option to your recipe’s? I am a little “special” in the kitchen. If the recipe is not in front of me, I will some how mess it up. If I write it down, I will get all dyslexic with measurements. Believe me when I say, one CUP is not the same as one Tablespoon! Especially with flour, and cooking for ones in-laws. Suffice to say, glue-gravy disaster.
    Thanks again!
    Your friendly meat-eating-vegan,
    Kat Creamer

    These were absolutely amazing — and I’m not a vegan. (Or a vegetarian. I love my cheese. And meat.) My boys have been begging me to have “breakfast for dinner” so I tried these tonight with the cheesecake sauce, and they were a HUGE hit. My 7-year-old asked me if I could get up early tomorrow to make them again for breakfast, and my 4-year-old and 1-year-old both loved them too. I can’t wait to try the blueberry ones!! Thanks so much for providing delicious, healthy options!!

  20. Chelsea says

    I was having a hard time deciding if I wanted these or brownie batter pancakes… so I combined them! I added a tablespoon of dark cocoa powder to these. AMAZING!!!!

  21. Faith says

    What is the calorie, fat, carbs, sugar, protein, etc. on these! They look so good, but I am trying to lose weight!

  22. Maggie says

    These were amazing! The first time I made the recipe, they didn’t even make it to the frying pan because the batter was so good. Once I actually cooked them, I melted a banana on top which was really yummy!

  23. Alanna says

    Katie (and everyone else) — this recipe works as waffles, too!!! 😀 I just tried it in my waffle maker, and I got three delicious golden waffles out of it. The second batch came out a little ugly since it wasn’t quite done and ripped apart when I opened the lid, but I’m pretty sure if I’d have just ignored the little green light and waited a bit longer, it would have been just as perfect as the first set. I really need to make some vanilla ice cream to go over these as a sundae, but I couldn’t resist eating them as soon as they came out, so I’ll have to try it again another day. (Note: I used the optional oil so I’m not sure if they’d come out the same if that’s omitted.)

  24. Rebecca says

    These look so good!! I am on a sugar-free, starch-free diet but I could make these if I used almond flour instead of the other flours suggested… you think that would work? I have tried an almond flour pancake before and it was not so good, but I am willing to try again!
