Coconut Pancakes

After the last batch of pancakes were a total bust (Oatmeal pancakes) – my girls were not overly thrilled when I told them I was going to make them pancakes for breakfast.  I assured them these would be better.  There was a lot of pressure on me – waiting for food first thing in the morning is not easy for kids – especially when they get their hopes up that it is something good.  I saw this recipe in Cooking Light, and I knew they had to be better than the Oatmeal pancakes.  Adding coconut milk to anything makes it taste good – at least that’s what I was hoping.

Thank goodness I was right.  These pancakes were incredible.  Even adding just light coconut milk made all the difference – I can’t imagine adding regular coconut milk, they would be decadent.  The pancakes were ridiculously delicious – and so thick and fluffy – look at the picture, I am not joking!  These pancakes were so good, I had them for dessert that night – I just warmed one up in the microwave, served it with a little syrup – and it was such a treat.  The coconut milk was not overpowering, but gave the pancakes just a wonderful essence of coconut flavor.  If you are looking for pancakes that are just a little different – look no further.  And make some extras for the next morning – they are awesome warmed up in the microwave, unless you are like me, and can’t wait for morning to have more…

  1. I have a question. Are we talking about coconut milk from a can (Thai Kitchen brand) or coconut milk from a carton (like So Delicious)?

  2. This was a delicious recipe. I increased the amount of milk for a thinner consistency, delicious!
