1 large egg

1 cup buttermilk

1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil

1 cup white whole wheat flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

6 large strawberries, cored, sliced lengthwise into 4-5 pieces to resemble hearts



  1. Whisk the egg, buttermilk and oil in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.
  4. Heat a large pan or griddle over medium heat and grease with butter or oil.
  5. Pour about 2 tablespoons of the pancake mixture onto the griddle, gently press a strawberry slice onto the top and cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Flip the pancakes and cook an additional 1-2 minutes.

Note: If you do not have buttermilk you can make it by adding 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice to 1 cup of milk. This mix also works beautifully with any type of milk you prefer!
