Blueberry Coconut Pancakes

I challenge you to tell me what could be better than weekend pancake stacks?  Especially a blueberry coconut variety drizzled with pure maple syrup. Yum.

I am going to label this recipe kid-friendly because I don’t think any other child except for mine doesn’t like pancakes.  We have a rule in my home with food, and that is that you have to try everything at least once.  When it comes to pancakes, I am determined to show him how delicious they are, but although I keep trying, he’s not into them.  This translates into a bigger stack for me and the hub.

The coconut milk makes for a really delicious pancake, but since we’re also adding shredded coconut here (coconut lovers in the house), you will still achieve a nice coconut flavour if you decide to substitute the coconut milk for almond milk or other milk of your choice.

Same goes for the egg.  I used a flax egg here because I love vegan baking, and when possible, I leave out eggs/dairy.  You can use 1 organic egg to substitute the flax egg.

I’ve decided to note substitutes more often in my recipes, as this is a lot of what your comments revolve around.  We all have dietary preferences/restrictions, so I want to offer something (almost) everyone can enjoy.

Happy Sunday – I hope you can add these to your weekend breakfast favourites.

Blueberry Coconut Pancakes

Serving Size: 8 pancakes

Ingredients

  • Dry Ingredients:
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon raw sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Wet Ingredients:
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax + 3 tablespoons water)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Begin by preparing your flax egg by whisking the ground flax and water in a small bowl. Place in the refrigerator until you need it.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, shredded coconut, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, flax egg, and vanilla.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring just until combined, without overmixing. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  5. Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat and grease with 1 teaspoon coconut oil. Ladle approx. 1/4 cup of the batter onto the pan. Depending on the size of your pan, you can do 2 or 3 pancakes at a time.
  6. Flip the pancakes after 2-3 minutes or when the edges of the pancakes are holding together well and you see bubbles forming on the surface. Cook for another 1-2 minutes on second side. Repeat with the remaining batter, oiling the pan for each batch.
  7. Remove from heat, and serve with fresh berries and pure maple syrup.

    • Sophia | Love and Lentils says:

      Poppy it’s unbelievable that Sonny doesn’t like pancakes- that’s probably why I keep trying but to no avail. He’ll just eat the fruit normally sitting on top of them. You’ll love these! 🙂

      • Yes it truly is unbelievable! I LOVE pancakes and I always thought EVERY child in the world did too!!

  4. Ooo girl, this looks like my new BFF.

  5. We have that rule too about trying food, after all, you can’t say you don’t like something unless you try it!! The pancakes look lovely xx

    • Sophia | Love and Lentils says:

      Exactly! Sonny tries the ‘I don’t like it’ card a lot without trying it but he’s slowly learning that he must give it a try!

      • Ben has just turned 12 and is suddenly starting to try things of his own volition which is wonderful, and such a relief!!
