Strawberry-Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Strawberry Maple Syrup

Blogging Marathon# 54: Week 2/ Day 2
Theme: Kid's Delight -- Fruits in any form
Dish: Strawberry-Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Strawberry Maple Syrup
For the second day under Kid's Delight -- fruits in any form theme, I made strawberry pancakes and served them with strawberry maple syrup. My kids love pancakes and waffles for breakfast, but I rarely make them. After a lot of nagging from them, I finally treat them with some pancakes.
Eggless Strawberry Pancakes
Last month, we went strawberry picking and seeing all the beautiful strawberries we got too excited and picked way too much than we can really handle. Strawberries are quite fragile and need to be treated very gently. I sorted them out and put them in a single layer on paper towel lined baking sheets in the fridge.

At one point, I had about 3 baking sheets in the fridge. I almost had a panic attack thinking of the berries going bad. But thankfully I was able to use all of them up without wasting any. I couldn't stop myself from taking these pictures, they are just such great posers :-)

So 2 of the ways I used the strawberries are in this eggless strawberry-chocolate chip pancakes and strawberry maple syrup. These pancakes use sour cream, but well whisked yogurt can also be used instead.
Pancakes turned out soft and fluffy. Both my kids loved them, but my little one enjoyed them even more because she absolutely loves strawberries :-) These pancakes are great to make for Mother's day, so colorful and yummy!! May be I can train my son to make them for me next year ;-)
