Strawberry & Goat Cheese Pancakes

Good morning everybody! I hope you are all enjoying the middle of your long weekend! Sadly, I have to work tomorrow…so think of me while you’re out barbecuing it up with the fam, mmmkay?

It didn’t take me long to come up with a recipe for this Pancake Sunday after admiring those plump juicy strawberries I came home yesterday from the farmer’s market. Who could turn down a warm and tender pancake stuffed with fresh sweet-tart strawberries and creamy bits of goat cheese?

Not this girl!

Strawberry & Goat Cheese Pancakes: (serves 1)

  • 1/4 cup spelt flour (any flour would do, this was just the one I grabbed)
  • 2 tablespoons toasted wheat germ
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1/8 cup diced strawberries
  • ~1 ounce of crumbled goat cheese
1. Pre-heat non-stick skillet to medium heat and coat with cooking spray.
2. Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl and stir together to break up any clumps.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, vanilla, and egg.
4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until just combined.
5. Stir in strawberries.
6. Pour batter in pre-heated skillet (I made 4 “mini” cakes) and allow to cook for 3-4             minutes (shorter time for smaller cakes)
7. Just before flipping, top cakes with crumbled goat cheese 8. Cook for 2-3 minutes on         other side before serving with more strawberries and goat cheese.

Just before flipping

These cakes are only sweetened with the natural sweetness of the strawberries. For normal taste buds, you might want to add 1/2-1 teaspoon of sugar or some stevia to the batter. I thought they were fine as is, but I’m not exactly what you call “normal” now am I?

Don’t answer that! 😉

The best part about these, other than that occasional “surprise” of goat cheese, is that they have a crisp exterior while staying nice and…er, dewy inside! Yes, dewy…I like that!

And they’re pink! What’s not to love about that?

Right Kristina?

Well, I’m off to go make the best of my last day of the weekend! What better way to spend it than with a trip to my favorite place within four walls…any guesses?

Peace, love, and goat cheese!

What is your favorite cheese…or non-dairy cheese for my lactose-ly challenged friends?
I’m always trying new varieties, but right now, I’d have to say my favorite is smoked gouda…because, you know…it’s good-a! 😉
