I'm one of those people who lives to eat rather than eating to live. I love good food, and I love sharing healthy and delicious recipes.

Pancakes Inspired By the Aloha Spirit That Will Make You Feel Like You're in Hawaii

It all started when I had a very spontaneous opportunity to go to Hawaii arise out of nowhere. And, of course, when the opportunity to go to Hawaii comes along, you take advantage of it!

My last night there, I was perusing tourist shops looking for some souvenirs to take home to my family when I came across some pineapple coconut pancake mix. I thought that would be a perfect souvenir for my brother because he loves pineapple, coconut, and delicious food in general.

When I got home, I found myself a little bit jealous of my brother, and I was kicking myself for not having purchased some of that mix for myself. I was talking to my mom about this predicament, and she gave me the idea to try to create my own version of pineapple coconut pancakes.

This seemed like a brilliant idea to me, and it inspired a very experimental pineapple coconut pancake breakfast complete with homemade coconut syrup. Fortunately, this experiment was a success, and the pancakes were a huge hit!

After eating those pancakes, I just couldn't get my mind off of them. They were so good. My mouth is watering right now just thinking about them. You're probably starting to realize that my brother isn't the only one in the family who loves good food!

I decided that something so delicious shouldn't be kept to myself, and planned on typing up the recipe to share with my family, but then I thought, "Why just share the recipe with my family when I could share it with the world?"

That's basically the process that has led me to be sitting here typing this recipe today, and I certainly hope that you will love it as much as I do!

A Few Details About the Recipe

This recipe has two parts to it. The first part is essentially a homemade pancake mix, much like the ones you purchase at the grocery store and keep in your pantry until you're ready to eat pancakes (only mine are much better than the store-bought ones). You can store the mix in an airtight container for up to 12 weeks.

The other part of the recipe has the ratio of wet ingredients to the pancake mix, much like you would see on the back of a bag of pancake mix.

With both parts of this recipe combined, you have a delicious breakfast food that will trick your taste buds into thinking you're in Hawaii!


This first section of the recipe is for the basic pancake mix. It can be stored for up to 12 weeks in an air tight container.

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour or white flour
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup coconut oill, or shortening

The next part of the recipe is the proportions for the actual pancakes! Get ready to enjoy the flavor of Hawaii!!

  • 1 1/2 cups pancake mix
  • 1 cup hot coconut milk, I warmed mine in the microwave
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp coconut extract, or more to taste
  • Fresh, diced pineapple or canned pineapple tidbits, to taste
  • Coconut Flakes, to taste


  1. Mix the ingredients in the first portion of the recipe and store to be used at your convenience.
  2. Mix 1 1/2 cups oat mix, 1 cup hot coconut milk, and slightly beaten egg. Then let sit for five minutes. It will become a consistency that is similar to a thin oatmeal. See the picture above for a reference of how the batter should look.
  3. Add in as much pineapple and coconut as you desire. In my opinion, the more the better!
  4. Cook on a hot oiled griddle. You might want to cut through them a little bit to make sure they're cooked all the way through. These pancakes take a little longer to cook than your average pancakes because of their thick consistency, but they are well worth the wait!
  5. Top with fresh pineapple chunks, coconut flakes, and syrup if desired. I strongly recommend using a coconut syrup.
  6. Enjoy!
While canned pineapple tidbits would probably work in this recipe, there's nothing like freshly cut pineapple.

This is the pancake mix I bought in Hawaii if you aren't in the mood to make these from scratch, but I really recommend making the homemade version!
