Berry Stuffed Pancakes Recipe

I don’t understand non-breakfast people.

For me, breakfast is the best part of the day. It’s non-negotiable. I will gladly wake up earlier than necessary if it means I get to enjoy a delicious breakfast.

I mean, who says leisurely breakfasts are limited to the weekends? On any given Tuesday or Wednesday, I can be found enjoying some elaborate pancake, oatmeal, or other breakfast dish.

These Berry Stuffed Pancakes? So easy. So delicious. So worth the extra 15 minutes.

Berry Stuffed Pancakes Recipe

Directions:

  1. Prep your favorite go-to pancake recipe. Here’s mine:
    • 1/2 cup oat flour
    • 2 egg whites
    • 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1-2 Tbsp Greek yogurt (optional, but makes them super moist)
    • 1-2 Tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk (to desired consistency)
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1/2 stevia packet
    • dash of cinnamon
  2. Prep your filling. Puree your choice of fruits in a food processor or Magic Bullet. I used strawberries and blackberries. The consistency should be slightly chunky – not completely liquid.

  3. To thicken your filling, add 1-2 Tbsp of chia seeds. If desired, add a bit more stevia or cinnamon to intensify the flavor.
  4. Add a thin layer of pancake batter to a greased non-stick griddle/frying pan, over medium-low heat. Reserve half of the batter.

    5. Add a spoonful of filling to the center of each pancake.

    6. Cover the filling with the remaining pancake batter.

    7. Let cook ~1-2 minutes or until the edges start to turn brown. Flip pancakes as usual, and continue to cook for another ~1-2 minute

    8. Topping time! I drizzled mine with almond butter, cinnamon, maple syrup, and the remaining filling.

Making stuffed pancakes is WAY easier than it looks! I’ve also experimented with a strawberry + mango filling, which was a winner as well. Let me know what combo you decide to try!

  1. Gotta have breakfast! Definitely my favorite meal of the day. While weekday mornings are pretty much a blur for me, weekends are all the more sweet. I made these this morning! I didn’t have any berries on hand – let’s talk about how Scranton’s produce has been AWFUL lately – but I did have apples. Definitely made for a thicker cake overall, but still so delicious! (noticed your mango idea after the fact – totally would have made that variation. Maybe tomorrow 🙂 )
