This is one of my go to dinners. It’s quick and easy, my kids LOVE it and so do the adults. It what my mom asks for every time she comes to visit, and my non pancake eating brother in law even likes them! We like them with homemade syrup just fine, but our favorite is when there are fresh strawberries available!
These create wonderfully thick pancakes. If you like your pancakes thinner you can do 3 C milk, and 4 eggs instead. Also this can be easily doubled, but by the end of the batter it will naturally get a bit thinner. When I’m done making enough pancakes for dinner I like to add mini chocolate chips to what’s left. The leftover coconut chocolate pancakes make a great after school snack for the kids!
Pancakes are the best breakfast has to offer. They aren't overly fancy, they aren't overly plain. They can be eaten warm or cold, on the go or at the table, healthily or drowning in syrup. And these coconut pancakes are the best of the best. These pancakes also comes with a recipe for coconut syrup.
