Tropical Pancakes Featuring Tropical Traditions Shredded Coconut



My kids love pancakes. I seriously think Ethan could eat his weight in them if we allowed it. It seems like whenever I ask my kids what they want for dinner they say pancakes. My hubby and I get rather bored with them so we like to mix it up a bit and add different things to the pancake batter for a little pizzazz.


I was recently sent a 3.5lb bucket of Shredded Coconut from Tropical Traditions and I have been wracking my brain for interesting ways to use it. I thought it would make a perfect addition in pancake batter! “Tropical Traditions 100% natural Shredded Coconut, Coconut Flakes, and Coconut Chips are made from organic dried coconuts in the Philippines that are grown with no fertilizers or pesticides. This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened.” The coconut made the pancakes taste tropical and delicious. A fantastic way to make pancakes exciting!


Tropical Pancakes – I made a triple batch


Pancake Mix – I used Krusteaz Whole Wheat and Honey

1 cup Tropical Traditions Shredded Coconut

1/2 cup Macadamia Nuts chopped

Kiwi sliced

Tropical Fruit in a jar, such as Dole


Mix a triple batch of pancakes in accordance with the recipe on the box. Stir in the coconut. Ladle onto hot skillet and sprinkle a little of the crushed Macadamia nuts on top. Flip pancakes when they begin to bubble. Cook until done. Arrange pancakes on a plate with the Kiwi and Tropical fruit. Add syrup if desired. Enjoy!
