  • Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 1 to 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

We ran out of our usual 2% cow milk but had a can of the full fat coconut milk in the pantry and decided to give this baby a try. Followed the recipe exactly as written. Holy Ned! Delicious or what? Very rich and flavorful. We went whole hog with whipped cream and maple syrup to top them off... thought we'd died and gone to heaven. Read More

they were okay for my first attempt. I will do some things differently next time to see if I can make them more fluffy though. They are delicious though I did not like how thin they ended up being...maybe a smidge more flour next time will solve that... Read More

I made this recipe as written and it turned out great, just like milk-based pancakes, but with a nice coconut flavour. These pancakes go great with a caramel sauce. Read More

Delicious when you run out of cow's milk or just want an alternative! I made these this morning as a double batch and they turned out great - they weren't super fluffy but definitely not "flat". If you had an issue with flat cakes make sure that you are JUST BARELY blending the dry into the wet - lumps are okay! Also I realized half way through cooking them that I completely forgot to add the melted butter that was still sitting in my microwave and they were still really good without it - so if you want to cut some calories you can omit the butter. I did add it for the second half of the batch and the butter actually made them less fluffy and there was not a significant taste change. Definitely adding this to the rotation for my lactose intolerant son! Read More

These were good. If you like coconut milk you'll enjoy the taste. They are easy to make with pretty common ingredients in my kitchen. We tried adding blueberries but it didn't work out that well. We didn't tell one of the pickier eaters in the family about the coconut milk and she didn't notice any difference so I'd say this is a keeper recipe. Thanks! Read More

I added more vanilla and I used concentrate instead of extract but they tasted amazing! I will make them many more times because they are perfect for a lactose intolerant person!! Read More

These were pretty good. We were out of both milk and coconut milk in the carton which are our go-to pancake milks so I had to find a recipe that used canned coconut milk. I actually liked the thinner texture they reminded me of the texture of sour cream or yogurt pancakes. My kids enjoyed them but the coconut flavor wasn t as subtle as the carton coconut milk.

Made it exactly as recipe. Delicious! Ran out of milk and coconut milk makes a great substitute. Will make it again. We had it plain with no toppings as it s great on its own too. Read More

The pancakes never rose and stayed watery and thin. Read More
