Serves 8 (serving size: 2 pancakes, about 1/4 cup sliced strawberry mixture, and 1 teaspoon coconut)

Light coconut milk is a creamy alternative to dairy and is helpful if you are also trying to avoid lactose. Bonus: It lends just a hint of coconut flavor to a divine stack of gluten-free pancakes. Toasted flaked coconut adds a nutty, caramel flavor to the bright berry topping.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine sliced strawberries and 3 tablespoons sugar in a small bowl; stir well. Let stand 15 minutes.

Step 2

While sliced strawberries stand, weigh or lightly spoon flours and potato starch into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, potato starch, remaining 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk. Combine coconut milk, vanilla, and eggs; stir with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Fold in diced strawberries.

Step 3

Heat a nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour 2 1/2 tablespoons batter per pancake onto pan; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Carefully turn pancakes over; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Spoon sliced strawberry mixture over pancakes, and sprinkle with toasted flaked coconut.

These are tasty strawberry pancakes but taking into account all the specialty products going into them, they are nothing special.  I assume they are gluten free which for those with Celiac's Disease or gluten sensitivities they are perfect.  Taste just like regular pancake mix - which if I make these again I will use.  The coconut milk is a nice touch and my family enjoyed them.
