Strawberry Shortcake Protein Pancakes

I am always looking for ways to make a healthy breakfast that is tasty and interesting. I decided to attempt strawberry shortcake inspired pancakes. They were delicious! My favorite part of a strawberry shortcake is the whipped cream but they are usually full of sugar and artificial ingredients.

I started searching for healthy whipped cream recipes when I found a really easy coconut whipped cream on Detoxinista. This breakfast only took me 15 minutes to make… whipped cream and all!

  2. Spray a large skillet with non-stick spray and heat on medium.
  3. Begin making coconut whipped cream while the pan heats and your batter sets.
  4. After the batter sets and your pan is hot, pour batter onto pan (makes 3-4 pancakes) and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Pancakes are ready to flip when bubbles appear.
  5. Cut strawberries into thin slices and place in between each pancake. Drizzle with 1-2 tbsp of coconut whipped cream. Enjoy! :)
