Take a trip to Hawaii this weekend with Banana Coconut Pancakes

Banana Pancakes in Hawaii

So I’ll admit. I start thinking about the weekend around Wednesday. It begins when I imagine what will be for breakfast. At our house, Jeff is the breakfast cook, there are two things which make getting out of bed an event to look forward to: eggs and coconut-banana pancakes. To celebrate the fact that I am finally home (Hawaii) I think I will request the pancakes.

Here’s how to eat banana pancakes like you are in Hawaii.

Turn on Jack Johnson

Gather items while sashaying around the kitchen in grass skirt:

2 cups Bisquick

1 cup of coconut milk* SHAKEN

2 eggs

3 medium ripe bananas cut into 1/2 inch thick pieces

Pre-heat stove. Whatever you use to make pancakes, griddle, pan, etc. don’t overheat it. Medium heat will produce a nice, lightly browned pancake.

Begin brewing Kona Coffee. Expensive, but worth it.

Blend the first three ingredients in a bowl. Be nice to your future pancakes, don’t over mix, a little lumpiness is OK. You can let them chill in the refrigerator for a few minutes for better consistency.

Set table, remember butter so its nice and soft, also take out any syrups so they are closer to room temperature.

Cut Papaya (hey! I said we were in Hawaii!)

Generously butter the pan, griddle, etc.

Pour pancakes

Gently press 3-4 pieces of banana in the batter. You want the banana lightly touching the pan. Flip when pancakes begin to

Perfect weather for coconut banana pancakes


we keep our pancakes covered with a slightly damp clean papertowl in the oven on a low, low heat as we prepared the rest of the pancakes.

Serve with coconut syrup. If that’s too sweet for you, consider creme fraiche or a coffee syrup.

Pack up your gear and head to the beach for a swim. You will need the exercise.
