Tropical wishes Pancakes

Yesterday morning dawned cold and bright as the sun sparkled on the snow.  I like to make pancakes for the family on the weekend, but we’ve had trouble with Sylvi and dairy.  She always wants to participate in meals with us, so I played around the recipe to cut out the dairy.  In addition to these changes, I also took the opportunity to cook the pancakes in my stainless steel skillet.  I haven’t touched the teflon one in weeks, which means we haven’t had pancakes since then either.  Both changes turned out perfectly and I am pleased to tell you that these pancakes somehow turned out lighter than those I’ve made with baking mixes!  I couldn’t find the syrup when I made breakfast, so instead, we spread strawberry jam on them.  They were wonderful and I’m a little sad they’re all gone.  Oh well.  Next weekend!


  • 1 1/2 c. All purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 c. coconut milk
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Sift together the dry ingredients and mix together the wet ingredients.  Slowly stream the wet ingredients over the flour mixture while whisking constantly until fully incorporated.  Pour batter onto a hot griddle or skillet spoonfuls at a time and cook until browned on both sides.  Serve with strawberry jam, fresh fruit and yogurt.  Then, take a bite, close your eyes and pretend you’re on a sandy beach.  Make as needed to cure the winter blues.
