1. Coconut Milk Pancakes
The nutritional profile of these coconut milk pancakes is reason enough to serve them for breakfast. Organic Authority explains that coconut milk, which is created from the grated meat of a coconut, contains fatty acids referred to as medium chain triglycerides. The triglycerides lower your cholesterol and can even have therapeutic effects on certain brain disorders.
In addition to being healthy, these pancakes can also “be made and enjoyed on the basis of their taste alone. The coconut flavor isn’t nearly as strong as imagined. Instead, as they are imbued with a mild, nutty flavor that truly adds to the experience,” Organic Authority says. Before serving, top your pancakes with fruit, such as blueberries, pineapple, bananas, and strawberries, or add more coconut flavors to your flapjacks by sprinkling them with toasted coconut.
