We’re back for another week of our Cooking with kids A-Z series and today we bring you Strawberry whole wheat pancakes made milk-free and egg-free. While this cooking with kids recipe is one that builds many skills, it’s a great addition to a strawberries activity theme, too.
Strawberry Pancakes Recipe
This week, we are on the letter “F” for flour in our cooking series. We decided to try our hand at whole wheat pancakes with strawberries for a fun Monday morning breakfast. These no-milk and no-egg pancakes are perfect for those with allergies and despite being made without a few usual ingredients, are very fluffy and moist. My daughter even asked for another batch for dinner!

Fluffy Strawberry Pancake Recipe
This recipe is an easy one to throw together. It can be made during the morning rush of a weekday while you still get everyone out the door on time. We used my favorite white whole wheat flour. White whole wheat is milled from white kernels and provides just as much nutrition as typical whole wheat flour, but with a milder taste and a lighter color. It doesn’t seem to bake as dry as regular whole wheat flour does, either.
Strawberry No-Milk, No-Egg Whole Wheat Pancake Recipe
To make the pancakes, you’ll need a few ingredients:
2 cups of white whole wheat flour
4 Tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 cups water
1 and half Tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 cup chopped strawberries
Mix the dry ingredients together. We use my Kitchen Aid Mixer bowl every time we make pancakes. The size is perfect for double batches of pancakes to feed a big crew.
Add the remaining ingredients except the strawberries, and stir well with a spoon.
Chop the strawberries and and place in a bowl. My little strawberry chopper sneaked a few strawberries while chopping.
Fluffy pancakes require a simple trick: Let the batter rest for a few minutes after mixing. You can sometimes see bubbles popping on the surface of the dough right in the mixer bowl. I like to heat the pan with butter while the batter is resting. Use a 1/4 measuring cup to drop batter onto the hot grill. These pancakes are thick and fluffy!
Milk-Free, Egg-Free Fluffy Pancake recipe
We made a few pancakes without strawberries, too. They were just as buttery and moist. These pancakes are so good with real maple syrup. Sprinkle a bit of confectioners sugar on the strawberry pancakes, or go all out with maple syrup. Either way, they are delicious and the perfect way to start your day!
