This was my breakfast today! Look!
It has been raining incessantly for the last three days here. But I’m not complaining. We’ve had a prolonged drought here in California so we’re welcoming the rain with great gusto. But this morning, the cloudy, grey weather got to me, so I had to channel some sunshine into my mood somehow. Sunshine = tropics, tropical weather = coconut. Coconut pancakes for breakfast! Ta-daaa!
I found a great recipe on Pinterest – Coconut Pancakes from Amy Johnson who blogs at ‘She wears Many Hats’. I deviated from her recipe and made it healthier by adding wheat flour. And for the coconut milk part, I used an Almond Coconut Milk Blend from Califia Farms. I’m a recent convert to Califia Farms and I use their Toasted Coconut milk almost everyday in my overnight oats. It has the right amount of creaminess for the oats to soak in and it results in the perfect porridge-y consistency which I love.
Here’s my version of Coconut-Blueberry Pancakes. This recipe will make about 8 pancakes.
