Strawberry Stacks!

On Friday, I bought some gorgeous juicy strawberries at the farm market. On Saturday, I found a recipe for Strawberry Shortcake Stacked Pancakes. On Monday, I made them. Coincidence? I don't think so!

See how yummy they look?

The pancakes got those little bubble that mean they're going to be scrumptious. Recipes say that the bubbles mean it's time to flip your pancakes. I guess that's true, too... :-)

I made mine in two batches of four so that while the second batch was cooking, I could stack the first four.

All in a pool of Vermont pure maple syrup... The Bup's stack looked so good that I had to put maple syrup on half of my stack. When I poured the strawberry banana soft serve onto mine, it all gushed out and drowned my stack (see 1st picture above). Still yummy though! 

This breakfast was so good that it made the sun shine! Just kidding, but it was a sunny morning. I even hung my sheets & towels outside to dry!

Added bonus: this breakfast kept me full for 5 hours. Unheard of!

Stacked Strawberry Pancakes
Adapted lightly from Oh She Glows who adapted from Bon Appetit Spiced Coconut Pancakes.Makes 2 stacks or 8 4" pancakes

1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup finely shredded, unsweetened coconut
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch sea salt
3/4 cup unsweetend almond milk
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
3/4 cup water
1 pint fresh strawberries, cleaned & sliced
Whisk the dry ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients and then add to the dry ingredients. Stir until smooth.

Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup of batter, per pancake, onto the skillet. Cook until small bubbles appear on the surface (see the scrumptious-ness? time to flip!).

After the first batch is done (I did 4 at a time), layer pancakes with strawberry slices. Finish with second batch of pancakes. Top with any extra strawberry slices, maple syrup, and/or strawberry banana soft serve.

To make strawberry banana soft serve: Place a frozen banana and 3 strawberries into a food processor. If necessary, thin with almond milk or orange juice.
