Whole Wheat Pear & Strawberry Pancakes

Pancakes were another item I got obsessed about. I saw a picture of some online and knew I had to make them that weekend. The sun was out so we even got to enjoy them on the patio.

I’ve been a bit over blueberries so I decided to use strawberries instead. Originally I was going to use grapes, but I ate the whole bag on a Breaking Bad marathon. I’ve been really into whole foods recently, which is why most of my recipes these days contain whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose. I quite prefer the taste of it too. It adds more depth to the food.

Pears-and-Strawbs

Ingredients
1 cup whole wheat flour or mix with oat flour if you have some
2 teaspoons baking powder
Pinch salt
Pinch of cardamom
Pinch of nutmeg
1/4 cup yoghurt
1 cup soy milk (you can use buttermilk or normal milk too)
1/2 cup finely diced strawberries
2 tablespoons honey
1 egg
2 pears
1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence

Topping
1/2 cup plain yoghurt
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup strawberrys

Directions

  1. Mix together all your dry ingredients in a mixing bowl: flour, baking powder, salt, cardamom and nutmeg.
  2. Wash your pears and grate them using the larger holes of a grater. You can peel the skin if you wish, but I left mine on. Add the pears to a new bowl.
  3. Dice your strawberries finely and add them to the pears.
  4. Whisk the egg and add it along with all the other wet ingredients to the fruit mixture: yoghurt, skim milk and honey.
  5. Add the wet mixture to the dry bowl and mix for about 15 strokes. You don’t want to overmix here.
  6. Heat some oil in your pan if you need to and add a spoonful of the pancake mixture to make your desired size. Spread the mixture in the pan so the pancakes are as thin as possible. Flip once the top starts to bubble and the bottom is a nice golden brown,
  7. While that’s cooking. Make your yoghurt topping (you can use cream if you are not watching your waistline). Add the yoghurt, honey and diced strawberries in a bowl and mix.
  8. When your pancakes are done cooking, spoon a dollop of the yoghurt topping with a drizzle of honey on top and serve!

YUM!
