This time of year always has me longing for Hawaii. When I think of Hawaii...coconut comes to always brings me back.

These days it would not be unlikely to see me out with my husband on a cold winters night....he enjoying a glass of Pinot and me sipping on a pina colada. It is the simple pleasures in life that make living so fun. Since I try to refrain from drinking a pina colada for breakfast I found this recipe for coconut pancakes to get my fix.

These are delicious! And the toasted coconut will make your house smell awesome!

Coconut Pancakes
Adapted slightly from firstlookthencook
Serves 4

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup light coconut milk
1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
1 egg

sweetened coconut flakes

Coconut Syrup:
light coconut milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle sweetened coconut flakes on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, stirring often until toasted.

Whisk together coconut milk, canola oil and 1 egg. Combine with dry ingredients and just barely mix until there are no lumps.
Use an electric griddle and heat to 375 degrees. If you don't have a griddle heat a non-stick pan on medium-low. Cover with a little melted butter or spray with cooking spray. Pour about 1/2 cup of batter into the pan. This will make a 6-inch pancake. Cook until there are bubbles on the top of the pancake,

then flip to other side and cook until done. My first pancake is usually the sacrifice pancake that I end up eating because it is the one where I can gage the right heat for the following pancakes.

Make the coconut syrup:
Mix equal parts honey and coconut milk for the syrup.

Serve warm pancakes, topped with syrup and toasted coconut.

Note: Pancakes freeze great! I store simply store leftover pancakes in a plastic bag in the freezer for future use.

I'm with you, Hawaii sound good right about now ~ and I see nothing wrong with drinking a pina colada for breakfast ;)

Holy cow lady - I have to have these! Coconut milk is my new love and I can't believe that it's used both in the pancakes themselves and also in the syrup. How insanely awesome is that? Definitely going to give these a try. I'll pretend I'm in Hawaii when I'm eating them!

P.S. Wanted to tell you that the cookies were a big hit at the concert last night. They were gone in less than 5 minutes. My Mom and I are already craving them again.

YUM! A great substitute for a Pina Colada in the a.m. (althougth I wouldn't blame you for indulging in a PC for breakfast! - maybe make it a "virgin" and that would be more acceptable...:-)

Coconut pancakes?! Why haven't I heard of these?! They look wonderfully light and fluffy. Where can I find coconut milk? A health food store?

À LA GRAHAM said...

You can find coconut milk in a can in the Asian section of your grocery store.

Cookie and Kate said...

I just made these pancakes and they are soooo good. I used fresh coconut milk. Yum! I took pictures and I'll blog about it soon!

A Busy Nest said...

I have to make these! I love using coconut milk in anything and pancakes seem like they would be especially yummy!

Cookie and Kate said...

Hey Tracy, my post about the coconut pancakes is up. I can't wait to make another batch!
