While we were in Hawaii (p.s sorry about the hiatus of recap post of our Hawaii trip, there comin' back..) We stopped by a local farmers market and I was able to browse through locally made and produced food. Its where we picked up that gross guava.. but all week I have been dying to whip up this coconut syrup!
I was able to meet the sweet lady that made this heaven in a bag! Barbara Oki
You can use it for smoothies, pies, curry, pudding, pancakes! Honestly, this would be fabulous on top of anything! Its all natural and homemade. Barbara Oki designed this coconut powder to perfection and as I was talking with her she is very proud and you can really tell how much work and love she puts into it.
I was craving chocolate this morning and I figured this coconut syrup would go perfect with some pancakes.
1/2 C. Coconut flour
2 1/4 C. Almond milk vanilla unsweetened
2 scoops Chocolate Elite protein
1 Tbs Cocoa powder
1/3 C. Agave nectar
2 egg whites
1/4 tsp baking powder
Unsweetened shredded coconut for garnish
yields about 10 pancakes
Throw all the ingredients into your blender (except the shredded coconut)
Blend until smooth.
Pour onto hot griddle (I was lazy and just used a skillet pan cause its easier to clean.)
Bubbles will form, when they start to pop, flip the pancake over and cook for about a minute or so.
Oki's Coconut Syrup
Now this is the magic of this stuff! Its SOO easy to make!
Coconut powder as pictured.
1 1/2 cups Water
Bring water to a boil and add the packet stirring until thickened
These were divine
