Pina Colada Pancakes

By January 29, 2014No Comments

I love breakfast food. I could really eat pancakes and waffles for breakfast, lunch and dinner if my family were up for that. There are so many delicious combinations of syrups, toppings, fruit filled yumminess that I have to be careful how often I make them. Since the New Year I have been doing surprisingly well at my new year resolutions (granted, it’s only the 28th of January :). As hard as it’s been I have kept my homemade breakfasts to only Saturday or Sunday morning. This past weekend I decided to come up with a healthier alternative for pancakes and syrup–and these whole grain Pina Colada Pancakes were just the ticket! They still had all of the light airy texture that I love, and the sweet syrup but with much less fat and calories than my traditional favorite recipe. I used coconut milk instead of oil and butter, replaced the white flour with whole grain flour and used skim milk instead of heavy buttermilk. I also cut the sugar in half and surprisingly I didn’t miss it (shocking for me, I know!). Hope you enjoy 🙂
