Healthy Tropical Pancakes with Coconut Milk Syrup…

Oh. My. Goodness. This is what our Saturday morning looked like!

Who doesn’t like Saturday morning pancakes? At our house this has been a long standing tradition, we don’t do it every weekend,

But we do it often enough! When you have the time to make a good breakfast and sit with those you love the most… Do it!

Pancake ingredients in our home have changed quite a bit over the years and we have gone from the Standard American fare of white flour and white sugar to whole wheat to whole grain to now alternative flours like the ones used in this recipe!

  To make these pancakes you will need the following:

  • 1 cup of raw organic coconut flour
  • 1 cup of organic rolled oats
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1  1/2  cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 pint fresh organic blueberries
  • 1 ripe banana

Place all dry ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until oats are ground into a coarse flour consistency, add all your wet ingredients and blend well, then add your blueberries and banana, blend until thick and smooth!

heat your griddle and coat with a little coconut oil or non stick spray to prevent sticking (I use Trader Joes non stick olive oil spray) pour pancake batter into your hot griddle to desired pancake size and cook over med. Heat… flip when the pancakes are full of little bubbles on one side * please note these pancakes take a little bit longer to cook because they are very moist and dense, be patient!  they are worth the wait 🙂

cook all remaining cakes the same way and try not to eat the already prepared ones as you cook the last of the batch 😀

Now for the Coconut Milk Syrup…

you will need:

  • 1 can organic full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup organic undenatured vanilla whey protein
  • 1 tbsp xylitol or erythritol (or another all natural sugar substitute)
  • 1 tsp vanilla

You really should make the syrup first and put it into the fridge while you are making the pancakes, it thickens up a bit as it chills!

  put all ingredients in the blender and whip it up, then refrigerate it! Easy as that!

  cut up some fresh strawberries or banana’s to top your pancakes (or reserve a few blueberries to toss on top)

And there you have it! High in fiber, low in sugar, pretty to look at, palate pleasing tropical pancakes!

Enjoy!
