Skinny Strawberry Shortcake Gluten Free Pancakes

It's healthy so I can eat 50, right? Skinny Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes ohsweetbasil.com

Phew! I don’t know why I feel the need to make such ridiculously long titles, see Maple Pecan Blondies with White Chocolate Butter Sauce, and California Steak Burrito with Grilled Zucchini and Smoky Crema. But both recipes are some of our favorites so it’s worth the mouthful. I totally would try a new name on these skinny strawberry shortcake gluten free pancakes, but I’m always trying to get as much information into the title as possible. This recipe is part of our partnership with Fisher Nuts so a big thank you to them!

It's healthy so I can eat 50, right? Skinny Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes ohsweetbasil.com

For example, these pancakes all started because of our famous Melt in Your Mouth Buttermilk Pancakes and the gobs of emails we started receiving asking for gluten free pancakes, healthy pancakes, and more. Since we were already working with Fisher Nuts we thought this would be the perfect fit for testing out a gluten free pancake recipe that happens to be a skinny recipe as well.

The hard part is drawing in the attention of the world to know that you just busted out a dang good recipe that happens to taste like strawberry shortcake too. I mean, it’s no lemon strawberry shortcakes or DEEP FRIED STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE and you’ll need to remember that these are not packed full of buttermilk and flour so don’t go in expecting the normal strawberry shortcake pancake, but they are still awesome and after all of our pancake testing over the years I can honestly tell you that they are totally in our rotation. They may not be so fluffy you could pad your bra with them, but they have the perfect flavor so just go for it! The kids will never know which is the best part!

The important thing to remember in this recipe is you MUST process the almonds with oats and a little sugar so that it doesn’t turn into almond butter. I prefer to use the Fisher sliced almonds so it blends up super fine. In fact, I blend up a large batch and then just scoop out a cup for every batch I make. I have never stored it for more than 2 weeks and I store the “flour” in the fridge. Hope that helps!

  • Can I substitute almond flour and oat flour instead of grinding them together?

    • I haven’t tried that so I can’t say for sure.

  • CAN’t HAVE Dairy WHAT Can I Use Instead…….>??????

    • Great question! I’ve never tried a substitute for the cottage cheese, but you could try almond milk or coconut milk. I would start with 1/2 cup and then add more as needed to get the right consistency for pancakes.

  • These look amazing! My favorite restaurant when visiting Bozeman, MT, has a daily special of cottage cheese pancakes, and I’ve often wanted to try an at-home version.  This recipe of yours has the added bonus of being GF, so it’s a win-win for me!  (As a teacher almost to the end of the year, one favorite tradition for the first week of summer is to go strawberry picking with some teacher friends and our families, so the timing of landing on this recipe is perfect, too!)  Thank you!

    • I love that tradition and wish we had a closer location to go picking. Have fun!

  • Hahahaha! I’m still just picturing padding a bra with pancakes. You sure would smell good.

    These pancakes look amazing! And I love that they’re gluten free. My daughter will be in heaven with these.

  • I have to say all of your pancakes recipes are so amazing <3
    Actually, I just came out an idea to cook pancakes for my weekend party then I visit your blog.
    So hard to choose one of these xD

  • I so very much appreciate the fact you gave us a gluten free recipe, since that is how I eat. I really wish I could try these, but I also have to go dairy-free. Please, if you know a dairy free alternative, let me know! For example, do you think I can use dairy-free yogurt? Thank you and please continue providing gluten free recipes!

    • Hmmmm, you could try applesauce instead of cottage cheese!

    • Jeannette, we make gluten free pancakes all the time with yogurt. I’ve used dairy free yogurt and had great results. The batter might be a little thick with all yogurt, so I would try half yogurt and half almond (or other dairy free) milk. Maybe about 3/4 cup total liquid (yogurt plus milk) for this recipe.

  • This recipe looks amazing! I am going to share this with my daughter who enjoys a gluten-free lifestyle with her husband. She makes a LOT of GF baked goods and she will love the way you combine the almonds and oats together in the blender to produce the GF “flour”. By the way, I am the Jackie who just made your wonderful ham, potato, and cheese casserole. Just want to give your pancake fans a shout out for that great casserole recipe, too!

    • Ahhh! Thanks Jackie! And I totally wondered if you were the same. We love that with time we come to know our readers like friends. So happy to have you here!

  • I’ll admit, I was skeptical of gluten-free pancakes until recently when I tried and LOVED them. There’s something to be said for leaving one’s comfort zone and venturing into new ingredient territory for old favorite staples. Can’t wait to try these delicious-looking cakes!

  • I’m always looking for more gluten-free pancakes to add to our rotation as well. Love the idea of blending the oats and almonds together to make these. Definitely want to try these soon!

  • I am also gluten free and love nut flour but what I love about your pancakes is throwing the oats and nuts together in the blender to mix them! Genius idea.
