Coconut Pancakes – An Indonesian Inspired Breakfast!
Balinese people love coconuts. They grow them in a few forms all over the island and use them for everything from cooking, beauty to even their flatware and furnishings. On more than one occasion we’d been served tea or coffee out of a coconut cup – we felt like this was a great way of reusing and repurposing something right from nature. Lots of street vendors even sold handmade coconut bowls and lamps decorated with eggshells and pearls! Some coconut shells were carved, polished, and painted into various pieces of art.
We loved enjoying coconut goodies while in Bali during the months of December and January and were inspired to create a low carb & keto version of one of their regional desserts – coconut pancakes. Balinese pancakes are usually served as one large portion that’s much denser and richer than your standard IHOP pancake. We thought we could replicate these pancakes with low carb ingredients more easily than when we recreated standard cakey, fluffy pancakes (see the super popular Low Carb Bacon Pancakes recipe!). Fluffy and cakey is harder to come by than a nice, gooey consistency – or so we’ve noticed in our keto experiments.
Finding coconut in all its forms in Bali was easy. Almond flour was more of a challenge, but we got some and got to shooting!
This video was a lot of fun to make because it’s not the typical overhead, sped-up video you’ve seen on Tasteaholics. We really tried to take our time and get some beautiful shots of some beautiful food. In fact, most of the video has been slowed down in post-production to really allow the viewer to admire the process instead of rushing to the result.
Let us know in the comments if you enjoy this style of video and we’ll make some more gorgeous step-by-step videos!
