Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 12 -14 pancakes (1 cup sauce)
- 2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 3/4 cup greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 2 tablespoons grated orange zest
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup buttermilk
- STRAWBERRY SAUCE:
- 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Set aside. In a separate medium bowl, whisk yogurt, orange juice, zest, egg, and buttermilk until smooth. Fold dry ingredients into liquid until just combined. Set batter aside for a minute while you prepare the sauce.
Make the sauce: Lay strawberries in a single layer on a greased baking sheet. Drizzle evenly with syrup and sprinkle cinnamon on top. Roast strawberries at 400F 10-12 minutes or until berries are tender and have begun to release their juices. Let cool 5 minutes then transfer to food processor and pulse several times to make a smooth (or slightly chunky) sauce. Keep sauce warm while you make the pancakes.
Cook the pancakes: Heat a nonstick griddle over medium heat. Cook pancakes by 1/4 cupfuls in batches 1-1/2 to 2 minutes on each side until golden. Serve pancakes warm with warm roasted strawberry sauce.
