These Whole Wheat Coconut Pancakes are soft and fluffy, rich and delicious with coconut cream and cinnamon, a little bit nutty with whole wheat flour and desiccated coconut, make perfectly easy and healthy breakfast or snack!
There comes a time, like Valentine day or any other day you want to make a special little treat for your loved one. Or ones, to be precise, if you have a bunch of little and little bigger folks jamming around in their jammies, wondering what’s for breakfast on some easy, snowy, fluffy Sunday morning. So what are you to do? Just go with the snowy, fluffy, soft and white flow!
Like any other European, I guess, I’m bit more of the crepe girl so thick, American – style pancakes are a bit of a challenge for me. Just give me any batter thin enough and I’ll flip you the thinnest, softest and laciest pancake you’ve ever seen! Laciest. OK, that’s another word my Croatian mind invented to say, “very much like lace”, and by now, I think you pretty much know what I mean by my word wonderings.
But, there also comes a time when you have to step out of your crepe – mind frame and flip some soft, pillowy, thick pancakes! These are not the first “thick” pancakes I’ve ever made but these are first on my blog. I was experimenting with oat milk and oats and I hope to put them here one day.
So, back to these soft pillowy coconut yearnings!
Apart from being soft, rich and delicious, these pancakes are surely on the healthy side of the flipping pan. They are made of whole wheat flour and have no sugar. The only sweetener is agave/maple syrup, which, if you ask me, always gives different and tastier kind of sweet to the stuff. Whole wheat flour, along with some desiccated coconut, gives them beautiful, kind of nutty moment. And certainly, we went nutty for another serving!
You can serve these pancakes with some good old fruit jam, like me, or if you feel somehow decadent and festive, be sure to whip some coconut cream and serve with a good dollop of it on top!
If you have a sweet tooth and like sweet treats for your breakfast and/or snacks, you will like my Mango Almond Coconut Breakfast Rice (V, GF) or Vegan Cornmeal Vanilla Pudding. Or maybe, some baked goods like Vegan Plum jam Cornbread?
All in all, these pancakes are easy to whip up on any day, simple and delicious, and what’s more important, your family will love them! I know mine did. This batch makes about 10 medium-sized pancakes so if you are making it for a family of 4 or more, be sure to make a bigger batch.
They can be served as breakfast, an afternoon snack or even brought to work to sweeten your day. They are also pretty fulfilling, so you won’t have to eat a mountain of those and still be happy.
So, what do you think? Will you be flipping some pancakes soon? How do you like your pancakes? Tell me, I would love to hear!
And now to the recipe:
Whole Wheat Coconut Pancakes! Soft & fluffy, rich and delicious with coconut cream and cinnamon, a little bit nutty with whole wheat flour & desiccated coconut, perfect easy & healthy breakfast or snack!
- 1 ½ cup whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp desiccated coconut
- pinch of salt
- 1 ½ cup coconut milk
- 3 tsp agave syrup or another sweetener to your liking
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1-2 tsp coconut oil for frying
For metric people, like me, measurement is 250 ml cup.
In a mixing bowl, add dry ingredients first and stir well. Add wet ingredients gradually and stir so there are no lumps. If your coconut milk was in the fridge, scoop the coconut cream from the top and add more liquid to fill 1 1/2 cup.
Heat your pan well. Add a little bit of coconut oil and swirl the pan to spread it.
Spoon about the 1/4 cup to the pan and gently spread it, not too thinly.
Fry the pancake on low to medium heat for a nice min or two. It'll get dark soon because of the whole wheat flour and when baked, it'll be golden brown, more brown than golden. Watch it doesn't burn. Few dark specks are fine.
Serve immediately with a nice dollop of fruit jam or whipped coconut cream, sprinkled with coconut flakes or desiccated coconut.
