My daughter is crazy into pancakes right now. Every morning she asks for pancakes! I don't mind making them, but of course with the blog I find I want to change up the flavors each day so I have something different to photograph.
I pinned a coconut pancake recipe years ago, and I finally got around to making it. I did not realize it was based off the popular allrecipes.ca pancake recipe until I made it, and I can see why they are so popular!
Light, fluffy, and packed full of flavor, this is nowhere near the boxed stuff your family would make. Neither my husband or I are big pancake eaters, but homemade pancakes may be changing our minds. These toasted coconut pancakes were well received by all, and my daughter was so happy with them, she requested them for dinner that night as well! The recipe makes 10 small toasted coconut pancakes, but that was more than enough for my daughter and I. I love how the pancakes don't leave you feeling overly full and provide a nice change from the standard savory breakfast (which I am more partial to.)
These toasted coconut pancakes contain no cows milk, so if you substitute in an egg substitute such as a flax-egg, you will have a vegan recipe. I have not tried the vegan version yet, but that is my goal the next time kiddo asks for pancakes. I used a mix of coconut milk and coconut cream, but if you cannot find canned coconut cream, you can use all coconut milk. Coconut extract would also work well here over the vanilla, but I did not have any on hand. Even almond extract is something to consider, but I always reduce the amount greatly because almond extract has a strong flavor.
Toasted Coconut Pancakes
Throw away that boxed stuff and try these homemade toasted coconut pancakes instead! The recipe can easily be made vegan.
- ¼ cup coconut cream
- ½ cup coconut milk
- 1 tbsp. vinegar
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- Pinch of salt
- 1 egg (or an egg substitute for vegan recipe, such as flax egg.)
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
- ¼ cup toasted coconut
- Coconut butter (optional)
- Coconut oil to cook pancakes in.
- Mix together the cream, milk, and vinegar. Set aside for 5 minutes. Add in the egg, vanilla, and melted coconut.
- Sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Slowly mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir in the toasted coconut.
- Heat a pan over medium-low heat. Melt some coconut oil into the pan. When nice and hot, add ¼ cup portions of batter. Cook until the one side is nice and golden, then flip. Cook until golden. Place onto plate and continue to no batter remains. Top with more toasted coconut and serve with optional coconut butter!

Homemade pancakes are really simple to make, there is no need to buy the boxed stuff. I know a lot of people look for quick and simple meals, but let me assure you and say, it really takes little effort to make homemade pancakes. We have many flavors to share with our readers, so keep an eye out for future pancake recipes!
Of course, I made these toasted coconut pancakes before my mother-in-law gave me a bag of toasted coconut chips. They are made with coconut sugar, and the sweetness is so addicting. They would pair perfectly with these pancakes. You can see them on my carrot cake! When I make the vegan version of these toasted coconut pancakes, I am definitely using those coconut chips!
I am a huge fan of coconut. I have collected so many coconut pancake recipes. None of them can "Stack" up to your recipe. Toasting coconut not only brings out the flavor of the coconut, it also gives the kitchen a nice aroma. I have to try your recipe for this weekend's brunch
I tell everyone the same thing, toasted coconut is the best smell ever! I would never buy already toasted coconut, it seems like a waste.

I love how ultra-coconutty these are and how you've made them dairy-free! They look lovely and sound delicious.
I really love how these pancakes are dairy-free, and completely vegan if you use an egg substitute.
Christy @ Confessions of a Culinary Diva
Wow! I love coconut and the combo with pancakes is killer. I have to try these this weekend!
Anything with coconut is amazing 🙂

I don't even like coconut all that much and these look great!
My neighbour is the same way, but since I introduced her to toasted coconut it is a whole new story!
Lisa @ Low Carb Yum
Thank you so much for this. I just love coconut and would never have thought to make a coconut pancake. This looks so amazing. I'm pinning so I won't lose the recipe.
You are very welcome! I tend to add coconut to a lot of my desserts/sweet meals because it is a favourite of mine.
Shannon @ Dinner from the Heart
These look so yummy! I love toasted coconut and coconut cream and coconut milk.... 🙂
I might have to serve them with some whipped cream and then the toasted coconut on top. Delish!
Ohhh, good idea! Whipped coconut cream! My daughter wouldn't have enough patience for that, but maybe next time for myself 🙂
Stephanie @ Back for Seconds
Oh man, these look good! I just love toasted coconut!
No matter what the recipe calls for, I always toast my coconut!
Krista @ Joyful Healthy Eats
eeek!!! I'm in love! Coconut and pancakes = my dream breakfast!
I am into savory breakfasts, but these pancakes were so worth it (and not very sweet at all!)
These look amazing! I adore toasted coconut, it makes your house smell so good!
Medha @ Whisk & Shout
These are so pretty! I'm obsessed with everything coconut but I've been abandoning it for chocolate/peanut butter as of late... gotta get back on the coconut train 🙂
Don't worry! We have a chocolate peanut butter pancake creation coming up (my daughter has an endless supply of pancake ideas in her head.)

I love toasted coconut and these pancakes look fantastic!!

I love coconut, and these pancakes sound fantastic - I want to triple the recipe and surprise my family this weekend!
Awesome! Thanks, Heather!
Oh sweet heavens these look great! I LOVE anything toasted coconut.
I am the same way!
I have a bag of shredded coconut and now I know what I am putting on top of the kids pancakes this weekend!
I am glad your kids love coconut! I wish I could change my sister's view on it 🙂
Jessica @ Sprinkle Some Sugar
These look so pretty! Love how they are loaded with coconut flavor from the inside to the topping on the outside!
I always assume one can never have enough coconut in their meal 🙂
THANK YOU for a wonderful recipe! Just made these & I must say they are DEVINE! I was in search of coconut pancakes but must admit was skeptical at first as I have tried a few & none lived up to my expectations. Plus I keep coming across coconut flour pancake recipes- which is not what I wanted. I followed the recipe exactly as stated & they came out absolutely perfect!!! Topped them with coconut butter & devoured them instantly! Light, fluffy & oh so coconuttyyyy. Coming from an island girl... these are definitely my go to for coconut pancakes!
