Nothing says the weekend to me like pancakes!  I always make something special for breakfast on Saturday morning, and this week I decided to go with strawberry pancakes.  I think my family was glad I did!  They are great with a little butter and syrup, or with a drizzle of melted Nutella.

Using a food processor, puree about 5-6 large strawberries.  You should end up with about 1/2 cup of pureed strawberries.  Set aside.  In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Set aside.  In a medium bowl, combine milk, egg whites, butter, and vanilla.  Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir until combined.  Stir in strawberry puree just until combined.  Preheat a griddle or skillet and spray with non stick cooking spray.  Scoop about 1/3 cup of batter in, and let sit until edges look set and there are small bubbles forming in the middle, then flip over.  Cook until both sides are lightly browned.  Continue with remaining batter. Top with butter and syrup, or sliced strawberries and melted nutella!  Best served immediately.
