Strawberry Chocolate Chip No-Flip Buttermilk Pancakes - Low Carb

This morning we slept in a bit. Even though it began as a beautiful sunny day, it's slowly transitioning over to an overcast and rainy day. We're going to run out and pick up some groceries here in a bit and stay settled in at home the rest of the day. I made brunch late this morning. It has been a while since I made my No-Flip Buttermilk Pancakes, and I had some beautiful fresh strawberries and blueberries in the fridge, so I decided pancakes would be the perfect way to enjoy them. 

As I was slicing up the strawberries, I was thinking about how I used to enjoy chocolate chip pancakes as a kid that we would stop and eat at the Old Windmill Pancake House on our way to the beach every summer. It was a special treat to pull over before crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and have pancakes there. So, rather than make strawberry and blueberry pancakes this morning, I went with strawberry and chocolate chip! I tossed in a few tablespoons of 70% cacao chocolate chips along with the sliced strawberries. They turned out amazing and tasted like "chocolate covered strawberry" flavored pancakes. They would make a perfect Valentine's Day breakfast (hint, hint). I served them with the last of the little beef smokies that I had leftover from the holidays. If you haven't tried my no-flip pancakes yet, they are definitely worth trying. I love them. The great thing about making them is that I have enough left for several more days. I get 6 servings from this recipe (cut into wedges). I snapped a few photos below. You can find the recipe here: No-Flip Buttermilk Pancakes - Thick & Fluffy. Enjoy!
