Strawberry banana Valentines pancakes are delicious easy to make pancakes perfect for Valentines Day. Surprise your sweetheart with these sumptuous Valentine pancakes this Valentine’s Day!
Folks, so far in the last 2 weeks, I’ve made 3 batches of these strawberry banana valentines pancakes. My other half rates them as THAT good!
Could it be because every bite is filled with strawberries?
Is it the delicious hints of the cinnamon she smells as these cook in the pan?
Or is it just that these pancakes and so so tasty that whenever there’s an opportunity to make pancakes these are what my other half wants and currently nothing else will substitute for them!
You should know that not only are these strawberry banana pancakes quick and easy to whip up, but they’re relatively healthy too.
They contain no added artificial sugar and I’ve made them with vegetable oil instead of butter.
These pancakes are sweetened from the natural sugars in the strawberries and bananas.
Plus you don’t need to use any butter in the pan to cook them either. Just a spray of cooking oil spray in the bottom of your pan will prevent these from sticking. They’ll each cook in a couple of minutes too.
Do you know what? Let’s be serious here. These pancakes are just too good to make only for your loved one. They make a fantastic breakfast that the WHOLE family will love too!
Whilst I understand you might want to keep these as your “secret special Valentines recipe”, it’s good to share the love around isn’t it? 🙂
Tips for Making These Strawberry Banana Valentines Pancakes
- When making the batter and combining the dry and wet ingredients, do not whisk. You only need to combine together and it doesn’t matter if the batter is still lumpy.
- Rest the batter prior to cooking for up to 30 minutes, this helps the pancakes to turn out light and fluffy.
- For cooking and best results use a nonstick frying pan.
- Lightly grease the pan by using a cooking oil spray which also helps to prevent burning too.
- The pan is ready for cooking on when some dropped water skitters across the surface.
