Strawberry valentines pancakes are light, fluffy and easy to make. Just 4 ingredients and 20 minutes to surprise your loved one this valentines day!
Strawberry Valentines pancakes are just THE perfect way to surprise your special other half this Valentines day!
There's no butter or sugar used. Just plain flour, some low fat cream cheese, low fat strawberry yogurt and eggs. Minimum calories, minimum fuss and no guilt!
Using a spray oil with a non-stick frying pan / skillet is the easiest and best way to ensure your pancakes don't stick whilst cooking too. Plus then they're not then saturated in unnecessary fats!
Even the sauce is just a handful of fresh strawberries blitzed together adding that final touch of velvet luxury.
You can guarantee that you'll be thanked by your other half for this delicious and healthy foodie surprise!
I have to admit that I'm not the greatest when it comes to remembering specific times of the year to create recipes for, like Valentines day!
I mean it's not that I forget what time of year it is it's just that there's the "blogging schedule", you know? 😉
When my other half suggested a strawberry Valentines pancakes recipe, for this time of year, I loved the suggestion, but panicked more about how it would fit into the schedule!
You see as a Project Manger by profession, everything is scheduled!
Menu's, weekends and of course a years worth of recipes. Aka "blogging schedule"! The only thing I don't schedule is holiday activities.
So these strawberry Valentines pancakes nearly threw the blogging schedule out of the window!
Fortunately I was able to switch a few recipes around, and I'm really glad that I did otherwise these delicious pancakes could have been missed, and you seriously don't want to miss these folks!
The other thing about this strawberry Valentines pancakes recipe is that it gave me an opportunity (not that I need one) to cook on my cast iron skillet that I got for Christmas!
It brought about fond memories of cooking on a griddle.
I used to make pancakes with mum and we coated them with lemon and sugar - total yum!
This is a much healthier recipe though. That's not to say that we don't occasionally indulge with a little lemon and sugar from time to time; all in moderation on the 80/20 eh?

NOW THIS GUY KNOWS WHAT IS UP! Also, can we add a chocolate drizzle?
Oh that would be so nice! Yes agreed, a little chocolate drizzle would make these special pancakes even more extra special! 🙂
Well pointed out, thanks Jeff!
I should add that I've also then forgotten to add the little vase with a rose in it. 😉
Little touches to detail eh? 🙂
Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine
Haha, well I'm glad since pancakes should always take priority on the schedule 😉
Great! We're agreed then Rebecca 🙂
Just need that main course then to have the whole Valentines day's menu sorted. I wonder what that should be..........
My husband has been hinting about how much he WANTS PANCAKESSSSSSSS - so um, perhaps I should finally give him what he wants... For Valentine's day 😉
He's a very lucky man then GiGi!
I have to make my own pancakes. 😉

Neil, I'm so impressed that you have a years worth of recipes planned! My hats off to ya - I kinda fly by the seat of my pants when it comes to a blogging schedule! And - speaking of impressed - wow - these 4 ingredient pancakes look so good - so loving that easy and simply ingredient list - that cream cheese in there is such a brilliant idea - I cannot wait to try this recipe this weekend! Hope you and your bud have a wonderful weekend climbing mountains!
I may have a years worth of recipes planned Shashi, I just wish that I had more time to do them and also to put 2 per week on the blog!
At the moment as my work is manic, it's even challenging enough just being able to publish one new recipe per week. Still, the good thing about that is that the one recipe get's all my attention. I'm especially glad you like my cream cheese made batter. It keeps these delicious pancakes nice and thick to stop them falling apart! 🙂
