Blueberry Sour Cream Pancakes cooked in Coconut Oil

Have you ever cooked with coconut oil? Trader Joes recently started carrying it so I picked up a jar and then for the longest time couldn't figure out when to use it. It just didn't seem right to use it for savory foods and baking with it didn't seem like an option so it sat in my cupboard until pancake Saturday. And we have a winner. I actually prefer it to cooking pancakes in butter. The coconut flavor is very subtle and seems to have a pretty high smoke point so it doesn't burn easily.

I used Barefoot Contessa's Banana Sour Cream Pancakes recipe but instead of bananas I added blueberries. This is my favorite pancake recipe. The batter has a nice tang to it which is great with real maple syrup. Yum!

How do you like your pancakes? I'm a big fan of strawberries and whipped cream.


  1. Oooh! I have some blueberries in the fridge I need to use. This looks perfect!

  2. Those pancakes look delicious. I use the coconut oil in stir-fries or in Thai dishes. It's so good.
