  • 3 cup coarsely chopped fresh strawberries

  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded orange peel

  • ¼ cup orange juice

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup oat flour or oat bran

  • 2 tablespoon chia seeds or flax seeds

  • 1 tablespoon sugar*

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ½ cup fat-free milk

  • ¼ cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 2 tablespoon canola oil

  • ¾ cup whipped Greek cream cheese**, softened

  • 1 - 2 tablespoon orange juice


  1. In a medium bowl combine strawberries, orange peel, and 1/4 cup orange juice. Cover and let stand for 20 to 30 minutes to blend flavors, stirring occasionally.

  2. In a large bowl stir together flours, seeds, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl use a fork to combine milk, egg, and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).

  3. For each pancake, pour 2 tablespoons batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. Spread batter to an even layer if necessary. Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown; turn over when surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry. Keep pancakes warm in a 200°F oven while making the rest.

  4. To serve, in a small bowl combine cream cheese and 1 to 2 tablespoons orange juice; spread evenly over pancakes. Top with strawberries.

*Test Kitchen Tip:

We do not recommend using a sugar substitute for this recipe.

**Test Kitchen Tip:

If you cannot find the Greek cream cheese, make your own. In a small bowl stir together 1/2 cup softened light tub-style cream cheese with 1/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt until smooth.
