Oh my gosh these are AWESOME! This can of pineapple on the counter was calling to me, and my husband can't eat wheat, so if I make pancakes they're gonna have oats in them. Plus, the Tahitian Pancakes came up on Heroes in the past week or so, so that's on my mind. I combined two different recipes that I found online, one for pineapple pancakes and one for oatmeal pancakes. Neither one is like this new version though. SO AWESOME! One last thing, I used coconut milk instead of cow milk, since my husband is also on this non-dairy kick. This recipe makes A LOT of pancakes, and they're very filling. Store uneaten pancakes in the fridge and have breakfast all week!
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1⁄4 cup rice flour
- 1⁄4 cup unsweetened dried shredded coconut
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3 large eggs, beaten
- 2⁄3 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice
Directions See How It's Made
- In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oats, coconut, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- In separate bowl, mix the eggs and milk with the pineapple pieces and their juice. (I didn't have crushed pineapple, so I threw a 20 oz can of chunks into the blender and pulsed a few times. It came out just fine.).
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. Stir in the melted butter. Let the batter sit a couple minutes before using. The batter is ready when the magic of chemistry has made everything thick and bubbly!
- Heat your griddle or fry pan to medium-low. (These pancakes need to cook a while to set up properly.) When a drop of water sizzles on the surface, the griddle or pan is ready to go. Put a pat of butter on a paper towel, swirl it around your pan to coat, then dollop the batter in 1/4 cup amounts for each pancake.
- In about two minutes, when the edges look dry and the surface is covered with bubbles, flip the pancakes. Cook the other side about two minutes more - until golden brown.
- Serve right away with or without maple syrup. Surprisingly, I liked mine even better without.
