VwaV Coconut Pancakes with Pineapple Sauce

I don't have the cookbook Vegan with a Vengeance anymore, it was taken. Food is now appearing in my kitchen that I did not place there.

This is not a complaint.

I would like to re-introduce you to my son, all 6'3", size 14 shoe of him - Matt, the theif. He made this recipe all by himself. The breakfast plate pictured includes the cookbook recipe, cantaloupe slice and raisins. You see plate one.... I saw it empty and plate two appear.

Chef comment(s): I like the flavor of the coconut, but not the stringiness. If I do this again I want to use the ground coconut that you buy for macaroons.

Although this coconut pancake recipe doesn't appear on the PPK site, here is one that does:
Submitted by Katherine Lubar
a German friend of mine came up with the idea of using carbonated water to make pancakes fluffy - it works amazingly!
Equipment: frying pan
1 1/3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup soya milk
1/3 cup carbonated water
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp oil
maple syrup for topping

The pinapple sauce is also in the cookbook, it's not hard. He used a can of crushed pineapple (juice and all) with stevia to sweeten and cornstarch in stead of arrowroot. I used the leftovers for smoothies later in the day.

Your son is huge! 6'3? wowza.. what a trip it must be to look up to him like that. It's great he's getting into cooking..

Matt looks a lot like another vegan friend of mine, who is also so tall! It must be the vegan genetics that tells the body to grow tall!

Great job he did on that recipe! I am not sure how experienced of a cook he is, but I can tell he has got your cooking gene(ious!): many encouragements from me to keep up with the good work!

That is tall! Coconut pancakes is a very unusual idea... sounds tasty though! Plus cantaloupe (rockmelon where I come from) is super-delicious!
