Tiny Helper can almost see what he’s actually cooking now. I’ve really been trying to set a healthy environment at home. Anything your kiddo can help with, no matter how small that task, will help them grow and learn how to eat. That’s what the ultimate goal is to make a difference with our children and help them build healthy habits for life.
I tell him, “This is the flour, let’s add it to the bowl. Smell this cinnamon should we put some in? Taste this pineapple, it’s so good, let’s chop some up and put it in the bowl too … what would you add to the pancakes?” A tiny voice says, “Corn!” I replied, “Sounds good, let’s try!” And you know what, it was really tasty ❤
Vegan Coconut, Pineapple and Corn Pancakes
- 1 & 1/4 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour
- 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- Pinch of Salt
- 1/4 cup Coconut, Shredded Unsweetened
- 1 Teaspoon Flax Seeds, Whole
- 1/3 Cup Dried Pineapple, Unsweetened
- 1/3 Cup Organic Corn, Frozen
- 1 & 1/2 Cup Water
- 1 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, Melted + More for Cooking With
Mix the dry ingredients in a larger bowl and set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix the water, corn and chopped up dried pineapple (let this sit 5 minutes or so to soften) then mix in the melted coconut oil. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and gently mix together. This might be a bit lumpy but that’s all good.
Fry in a pan over low/medium heat with more coconut oil. Enjoy! They need nothing, we love them right out of the pan or even cold on the go.
