Coconut pancakes

I won’t take credit for these perfect little pieces of heaven.  My 3 year old son Charlie proposed that we make coconut pancakes this morning.  My thought?  Brilliant!  But I’ll let you decide 🙂


Can of coconut milk and bowl of shredded coconut

Coconut Pancakes


  • 3 tbsp. melted butter
  • 2 c. flour can substitute gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ¼ c. sugar
  • 2 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 can 398mL coconut milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp coconut extract


  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan or microwave and cool.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with a fork and add the coconut milk, vanilla, coconut extract and cooled melted butter
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until mixed: do not over mix! It will still look lumpy.
  5. Heat a griddle or pan with a small amount of vegetable oil on medium heat, pour into pancake shapes of your choice, and flip when the bottom is golden brown.
