1. Add all dry ingredients to a bowl, and mix until well-combined.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients.
3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, and whisk until thoroughly combined. Let batter rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Note: This batter will be a little bit thinner than your typical pancake batter.
4. Spray a non-stick skillet or griddle generously with vegetable oil, and heat over medium heat.
5. Pour batter into skillet using a ¼-cup measuring cup. Cook pancake until sides are set and bubbles form in middle (about 2 to 3 minutes), then flip and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Remove pancake, and repeat steps with remaining batter.
6. Serve pancakes with strawberries, if desired.
