Disclosure: I was invited to be in the review group from Enjoy Life Foods and I received product samples for free. My opinions are my own and I was not paid or required to write this review.

My food allergy friends and I have been checking the shelves feverishly ever since we heard about the launch of the Enjoy Life Foods baking mixes and I am so excited to have received all of them for our family to try out!  I will testing them out throughout the next week and passing along some new recipes to you too!

In case you have never heard of Enjoy Life Foods, their products are allergy-friendly which means they are free from the “top eight” allergens: wheat/gluten, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish.  Their products are also made without casein, potato, sesame and sulfites.

Enjoy Life Foods has a line-up of foods from cookies to cereals to baking chocolates, and now five new baking mixes – All-Purpose Flour Mix, Brownie Mix, Muffin Mix, Pancake and Waffle Mix, and a Pizza Crust Mix.  These are also “top eight” free (including gluten-free) and also include probiotics and plant-based protein.

{If you’re new to the blog, and don’t know our story, welcome!} My daughter is currently allergic to peanuts, eggs, kiwi, and pineapple.  We also used to manage dairy and soy allergies, but she outgrew them about a year ago.  Even with us managing “only” two of the “top eight” allergies we find ourselves very loyal Enjoy Life customers; still remembering purchasing my first Enjoy Life chocolate chips thinking “these aren’t going to be that great I bet,” and boy was I wrong!  The chocolate chips are a staple in our home and now their mixes are about to become staples as well.

The inspiration for this recipe came from my daughter who spotted a customer purchasing a strawberry shortcake cake in the local grocery store and her asking me what that was and if she could get one.  As with many of the things she sees on the shelves or in other grocery carts I had to reply with “Sorry, but it is not safe for you due to your food allergies.”  {Still upsets me every time I have to say this to her.} Store bakeries (pretty much any bakery,) is off limits for us.

The next day our shipment of Enjoy Life Foods new baking mixes arrived and I knew right away that Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes were going on the menu for that weekend.  

The only additional ingredients needed for this (outside of the oil and water for the pancake mix,) is strawberries and heavy whipping cream.  If you are dairy-free you can also pick up your favorite non-dairy frozen whipped topping.

This recipe is so easy – you just follow the recipe on the box for the pancakes, which requires just oil and water, as follows:

Pancake/Waffle Instructions

Combine 1 ½ cups mix, 2 tablespoons plus 1-teaspoon oil, and 1 ½ cups water (added slowly) in a bowl. Stir vigorously with a whisk until powder is just combined and no lumps remain (approx. 10-15 stirs). Use sufficient water for a batter that is smooth but not too runny. Prepare a slightly thicker batter for waffles.
Cook per instructions below.
Add toppings of your choice!

For Pancakes:
Pour batter onto pre-heated, greased pan or griddle for the pancake size of your choice. If desired, add toppings to the uncooked side and cook until the edges are dry. Flip and cook for a further 1-2 minutes to desired color.

For Whipped Cream:

You can use your favorite dairy or non-dairy whipped cream or make your own.  Since we are not dairy free I picked up a container of safe heavy whipping cream and whipped with a hand mixer.  I did not add any additional ingredients and it was wonderful just as!
