  • Old-fashioned rolled oats
  • Coconut milk
  • Sugar
  • Eggs
  • All-purpose flour

Coconut Oatmeal Pancake Tips

Although the recipe does not yield very many pancakes, each serving is hearty and fulfilling. You’ll have to restrain yourself because you’ll defiantly want to go back for seconds, but give the meal a chance to digest because the coconut oat pancakes are extremely filling.

Enjoy a dose of sweet and savory coconut oatmeal pancakes. The mixture takes your breakfast experience to the next level. Here are a few tips to improve the results of your pancakes:

  • Coconut: Unsweetened coconut is a healthy ingredient that packs a balance of flavor, natural sweetness and toasted nutty aroma. Pan fried oats are the predominate flavor, however there is slight hint of coconut to offset the balance. 
  • Strawberry: The sweet tasting strawberry syrup adds a delicious touch to the breakfast recipe. The spongy pancakes will soak up the sweet sauce around the edges of the plate.
  • Lime: Add uniqueness to the sweet syrup with lime zest and juice. The zesty tartness is guaranteed to spark your tastebuds and get your palate excited about starting the new day.
  • Oats: Rolled oats and quick oats work well when making this pancake recipe. Rolled oats have thicker flakes that gives texture to the pancake. Quick oats have thinner pieces that are broken up into small bits, only soak quick oats for half the amount of time.
  • Dried fruit: If you were looking to make a slight variation, apricots, blueberries, cherries, dates, figs, peaches, plums and raspberries would enhance the taste of the syrup and allow for plant of variety to the topping.
  • Nuts: Almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, pistachios and walnuts are nuts that could easily be added to the pancake topping. There are no nuts in this pancake recipe, but nuts add nutritional benefits like protein, fiber and healthy fat. 
  • Make ahead: Pancake batter can be kept in the fridge for about an hour. Store inside an airtight container or ziplock bag to maintain moisture within the batter.
  • Storage: Fresh cooked pancakes last for about 5 days when stored inside an airtight container in the refrigerator, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
