Coconut Milk Pancakes

Good morning– It’s pancake time.  We had a little “pancake party” this morning.  Laurel is just in from her 7 week road trek and my Mom came by after we walked at the park this morning.  So how about a stack of pancakes to celebrate? –sounds like a good enough excuse to me. These pancakes are not too sweet (that’s what all that maple syrup is for) and have a hint of coconut flavor to make them delicious.  They are worth waking up for!

1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup coconut milk
1 1/2 tsp. canola oil
1 egg

Stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Then mix in the coconut milk, oil and egg until completely blended.  And pour them out on a hot griddle sprayed with cooking spray.  and voila!!–pancakes!

This makes about 8 medium size pancakes.  Next time, I think I’ll throw in a little shredded coconut and some chopped pecans.  Hope you give them a try!
