These buttery pineapple pancakes might just become your new favorite pancakes:
With a base that absolutely melts in your mouth, it’s almost more like cake than pancakes.
I’ve posted many pancakes over the years; a giant list can be found here: 100+ Healthy Pancake Recipes. And these pineapple upside down pancakes are surprisingly my favorite of them all. A friend from high school once taught me how to make a ridiculously-easy pineapple upside down cake that went something like this: pour melted butter into the pan, spread on a layer of crushed pineapple, and top with vanilla cake mix and more butter… maybe it wasn’t quite that simple, but it was pretty easy and tasted amazing.
These cake-like pineapple pancakes remind me of that cake… but without all the butter! (Seriously, there was a massive amount of butter in the cake. No wonder it tasted so good!)
I hope you like the recipe as much as I do!
Pineapple Upside Down PancakesPrint This Recipe [mrp_rating_result show_count="false" show_rich_snippets="false"]
- 1/3 cup flour (spelt, all-purpose, Bob’s gf, or ww pastry all work) (45g)
- 2 tbsp quick oats or certified-gf quick oats (10g)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp salt
- pinch stevia, or 1 tbsp liquid sweetener of choice (such as pure maple syrup)
- 1/3 cup milk of choice, warmed slightly (minus 1 tbsp if using liquid sweetener) (80g)
- 2 tsp melted virgin coconut oil (Can sub veg oil, but coconut oil gives the pancakes an incredible shortbread-y taste. Omit only if you don’t mind the taste of fat-free pancakes.)
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 4 pineapple rings
In a cereal bowl, combine all dry ingredients except pineapple, and stir very well. In a separate bowl, combine all liquid ingredients. (The milk is warmed to prevent the oil from solidifying on contact. This is a good practice for any baked-good recipe that calls for coconut oil.) Pour dry into wet, and stir together to form a batter. Grease a skillet, then turn the heat to medium. Test the heat of your skillet by throwing a few drops of water onto the surface. When the water sizzles, the pan is ready for the pancake batter. Turn skillet to low-medium and drop about 1/4 of the batter onto the skillet, then spread out and lightly place one pineapple round in the middle, pushing down just a little. Repeat with another pancake. (Unless you have a giant skillet, it is best to just do two at a time so as not to crowd the skillet.) Flip pancakes over when the edges become firm and they are able to be flipped without breaking. Continue cooking until desired doneness is reached. I turned the heat up to high at the very end, to fry the pineapple slices a little. Makes 4 super-thick pancakes.

I just made them and I must say these are delicious! I would have never thought of pineapple upside down to be a flavor of pancake! Good work Katie!
Chocolate Covered Katie says
I think that’s probably a record for the fastest anyone’s ever made one of my recipes after I posted it. Thank you so much for trying them! 🙂
These look delicious! Sorry, I wasnt quite sure… Are the nutrition facts for 1/4 of the recipe?
This looks so yummy!
Annie @ Natural Sweet Recipes says
What a happy post to find this morning! These look incredibly delicious! I just discovered I like pineapple so I will have to give these a try!
Kelly @ Hidden fruits and veggies says
Wow! This sounds so amazing. Love putting fruit in my pancakes and I’ve never ever thought to add my favorite fruit — pineapple! Can’t wait for the weekend to try these out.
Mmmm pancakes! I’ve made a tradition with some friends- every Sunday we make pancakes together and this recipe will most definitely me featured soon!
My go-to breakfast of late has been chia seed pudding with blueberries and bananas, topped with some crunchy granola. Filling and delicious!
PS. I’ve started a blog and would love if you checked it out! You inspire my inner vegan chef!
I’ve recently been having chocolate oatmeal smoothies/milkshakes for breakfast. It’s a variation of one or more of your milkshakes, and let me tell you, this is the easiest it has ever been to lose weight…knowing that I get to start my day with a milkshake makes it easy to not eat at night. And it keeps me so full that I have no problem waiting until an appropriate time to eat again. I put in a frozen banana, cocoa, cashew butter, oats, and almond milk. If I’m feeling like something decadent I’ll add a tbsp of chocolate chips.
The next time I go shopping I’m going to get hazelnut butter because these taste to close to the hedgehog milkshakes I used to make at the ice cream shop I worked at, I figure I may as well go all the way. 😉
Also, to explain my love for you and your recipes, I make a chocolate cake batter milkshake for almost everyone who walks through my door. Thank you so much for sharing your love of healthy and delicious food!!
Ohh, I love the look of this!
It looks so pretty.
And of course, delicious.
I typically am a creature of habit when it comes to Breakfasts throughout the week, I usually keep it to the same 3-4 Breakfasts and then I become a bit more adventurous with other recipes during the weekend!
I like to have coffee 1 egg white and a bit of fruit. Yum!
Sarah the official CCK Drooler says
I am seriously loving Angela’s (@OhSheGlows) overnight oats/banana soft serve parfaits…it’s hard not to have one each day!
I also vary that with the Fitnessista’s bfast cookie, green smoothies, and raw buckwheat porridge (again, courtesy of Angela).
And this morning was great: peanut butter cinnamon banana soft serve with chia seeds mixed in. Really good!
Man… I’m getting SO impatient for tomorrow morning!
Anna @ Your Healthy Place says
Love this idea, that’s delicious! A pineapple ring fried into each pancake – genius :).
Katie, surely you did not eat those pancakes topped with syrup?! Wasn’t that way too sweet for you? I mean, I might like it, but you? Not trying to give you a hard time, it was just the first thing that popped into my mind when I say the (very lovely) pictures!
Even if she didn’t eat it with syrup, it’s not like she’s not allowed to pour on syrup for presentation….
These look delicious…I am a creature of habit and always end up with a bowl of steel cut oats mixed with fruit and peanut butter…I like my oats cold as I believe you have said you do too.
spelt flour – check, oats – check, coconut oil – check, pineapple – check… soo… guess what I will have for breakfast tomorrow 😉
Heidi Lynn says
I love that you give nutritional info, but I’ve noticed a lot of the times you just give the serving amount as grams and there’s no way to know how many servings the total recipe is without me weighing it all out. Can you please include the number of servings?
Now to your question. I go through spurts where I eat the same thing daily, but most of the time I like variety.
Unofficial CCK Helper says
CCK has listed the serving size for this recipe, both in the post and in the nutrition facts.
Nikki @ The Road to Less Cake says
Please come cook for me! They look epic.
Looks great! And I actually have a pineapple in my kitchen just waiting to be cut!
Katy @ Katy's Kitchen says
Upside down pancakes- what a cool idea! I bet they give so much more fruity flavour than when you mix in the fruit.
I followed this recipe very carefully but the pancakes were gummy and undercooked under each pineapple ring. It seems like the moisture of the pineapple prevented the batter from cooking completely. Maybe next time I try this I should pat dry and warm each pineapple slice before pushing them into the batter.
Ilane @cultiv8health says
I drool with all your pictures and recipes. I cannot wait for your cookbook!
Lindsay @ Life, Love and Sugar says
Oh my gosh – what a great idea! Those pancakes look awesome! I love pineapple upside down cake!
My favorite at the moment is peanut butter and banana, I eat it almost everyday and love every bite!
My favorite breakfast of the moment is eggs benedict (definitely a restaurant treat and not an at-home treat). I’m very ritualistic about my oatmeal, changing up the fruit in it but nothing else … however, this pancake recipe and the link to the baked oatmeal have me thinking a little bit harder about maybe having “special” breakfast on the weekend!
Odd to see an ad for Turkey Farmers at the top of the page…
Chocolate Covered Katie says
If it’s an adsense ad, I unfortunately can’t control what they put up (and it’s different for different people, depending on a number of things such as your browsing history, your location, etc.). Adsense just backfills; they are not my ad network, and my ad network knows my preference for non-meat ads. Sorry for the issue… I don’t like meat on my site either.
Rachel Kirkendall says
Mmmm, those look like they might almost be as good as the carrot cake waffles!
As for the question of the day…very much a creature of habit. Some variety or another of your baked oatmeal on Tuesday (tomorrow is banana bread!), a bowl of steel-cut oats with blueberries on Thursday, alternate between the two on Sundays, and usually sunny-up eggs with sweet potato hash on the other days. =P
Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says
Aww these unreal. I could stare at these photos all day.
did you see that Austin, TX was named #1 vegan friendly US city? http://www.peta.org/features/top-vegan-friendly-cities-2013.aspx link to the top 10
Chocolate Covered Katie says
I did see that! 🙂
[email protected] OmNom Love says
I love any form of pineapple so I will be trying this soon! I’ve never attempted to make a pineapple upside down cake, but it is on my “recipes to try” list. Maybe I should start with pancakes first….
I like to change up my breakfasts. My favorite breakfast right now is a crepe with almond butter and grape jelly or goat cheese and any type of berry syrup. I also like pancakes with sunflower seed butter and maple syrup. And eggs with salsa…. Ok, so I really don’t have a favorite breakfast. I love all my breakfast food! 😉
We’re already huge boatmeal fans and now these! I just happened to have a ripe pineapple on my kitchen counter. These met with huge kid and parent approval. Another great one, Katie!
I made these this morning! I like how the ingredients are always readily available and I loved the pineapple pancake combo! Just one thought: the amount of pancake batter was in my case not nearly enough to make four pancakes. I made three and my pancakes were just large enough to press one pineapple ring into.
Jennifer Wentworth says
I had the same thing happen had to double the recipe
I got four, and they were even a little bigger than the rings. But I used canned pineapple rings, so maybe they’re smaller? It probably depends on the size of the pineapple. Anyway we LOVED these! But Katie I still think your strawberry ones are my favorite :).
Chocolate Covered Katie says
I used canned as well. Be sure to spread the batter out enough (using the pancake ladel) that you can fit a layer of pineapple on each slice.
Me Too! We loved them, but I’m definitely doubling the batter next time. Thanks for a great breakfast Katie! 🙂
Wow I can’t wait to try these. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE pineapple. I have some fresh pineapple in my fridge now, though it is cut in chunks. I imagine it will still work!!
My breakfast of late has been a new one I got from Dr. Fuhrman. 1/4 C oats, 1 Cup blueberries, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and pomegranate seeds & juice, baked in the microwave for 3 minutes. Tastes just like blueberry cobbler!! But this recipe with pineapple, I have to try!!
We’re going to have to try these this weekend!
To answer the question of the day- We eat the same thing during the week and depending on the season. Autumn/winter,we eat either oatmeal or homemade granola (oil and sugar-free,if you need any base for a new recipe idea 😉 ). Summer and spring,we tend to have smoothies. Weekends,anything goes-frittatas, pancakes,waffles, tofu omelets, tofu or bean or polenta rancheros,etc.
These look amazing! I love cooked pineapple in both sweet and savory dishes. These will probably be made this weekend unless I give in and have them for dinner sooner.
My two current go-to breakfasts are a fruit smoothie (with protein powder and yogurt to keep me full) or a crustless quiche of some flavor (depends on what veggies or leftovers I have in the fridge).
Ashley Bee (Quarter Life Crisis Cuisine) says
This looks delicious! I looove pineapple, and upside down cake reminds me of my Nana 🙂
I want it in my mouth! These pancakes look sooo delicious, can’t wait to try them! If you want that true upsidedown cake flavor, you might try brown sugar as the sweetner. That is the other yummy ingredient traditionally used with the melted butter that goes in the pan before the batter. Bye now, I have some cooking to do. Thank you for another “Why didn’t I think of that myself?” recipe 🙂
Claire Elizabeth says
Oh! Now I wish I had pineapple! Hahah! These look AMAZING, Katie! I bet the Coconut Oil makes it SO soft and delicious!
For breakfast, I am crazy addicted to puffed Kamut! My mom has your Single Lady cupcake with chocolate chips EVERY DAY! And I make it for her, everyday! Right now we’re out of chocolate chips (*tear*) and quite low on money (we get paid on Friday, so that’s when chocolate chips will come home!!!!), so right now I make hers like this:
-3Tbsp Spelt Flour
-1/4tsp Baking Powder
-1/4tsp each Turmeric and Cinnamon
-Stevia to taste
-1Tbsp Apple Sauce
-Dried Cranberries and Almond Slivers mixed in and on top
She loves that one too, but nothing beats chocolate chips. Am I right??? 😉
[email protected] says
Great recipe and the colors are amazing, I am amazed how you got that pineapple into that pancake looks good…
These look super yummy!
Katie, I love how creative you are with keeping things healthy and low in everything! Can’t wait to try them!
Can you use protein powder instead of flour? Thanks!
Unofficial CCK Helper says
I know I’m not Katie, but to me it sounds like they would fall apart.
Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes says
I’m all over this!! I have pineapple begging to be turned into this 😉
Shirley @ gfe & All Gluten-Free Desserts says
Those are adorable and I bet every bite is amazing as you say, Katie! I shared on my gfe Facebook page. Off to Pin and share on Twitter now. 🙂
Um… these look AMAZING! What a fun idea 🙂
Those look AMAZING! I love pineapple upside down anything 🙂 My current breakfast consists of an egg and sausage frittata…not necessarily vegan friendly!
Ellen Stormer says
I made these for breakfast this morning; really terrific! My daughter sprinkled hers with chopped walnuts & coconut – my kids are pretty spoiled when it comes to weekday breakfast, but I can’t imagine a better way to start the day 🙂
I love these!
Can you PLEASE make a low-fat variation of this recipe:http://myyearwithout.blogspot.ca/2008/05/cookies-cookies-cookies.html
It’s my favourite sugar free cookie recipe i go to when I’m baking but it has SO MUCH BUTTER. Thanks!
Chocolate Covered Katie says
What about maybe the grain-free sugar cookie recipe?
I seem to go through breakfast phases….. I am currently in a apples and peanut butter phase. In the past I have gone through cereal, oatmeal, toast and jam, bagels and cream cheese, smoothies, bananas and peanut butter and yogurt and granola phases.
Mmm…drooling right now 🙂
These sound like they would be great (if I liked pineapple better). My current favorite breakfast is açai bowls, which is very popular in Brazil, where the açai berries are grown. After that comes smoothies and pancakes.
Wow those look tasty! My favorite breakfast at the moment is your Oreo Pancake recipe. I eat it at least once a week.
Good grief. I want to comment on the wonderful pancakes but all I can think about is the annoying ad announcing some dropout rate that COMPLETELY covers the header of your blog! I’m sorry. I’m just going to have to click off without seeing the recipe. It’s so incredibly annoying to click on a blog expecting a nice recipe and getting a huge in-your-face-and-completely-irrelevant ad staring in your face. I no longer care about the pancakes. I’m sorry to say this, Katie, but I hope you’re getting a lot of money for those things to cover up your header.
You know, you could be a little nicer. Good grief.
For what it’s worth, I can see Katie’s header just fine. Oftentimes it’s yor own browser that’s at fault, and she’s even said in the past that she sometimes has design and coding issues. Bloggers aren’t tech geniuses and design hiccups happen sometimes to everyone. When they do, it’d be nice if their readers had some patience and respect.
I don’t need to be a little nicer when I’ve clicked on Katie’s new site and design and dealt with overbearing ads EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I. CLICK.
Jill, perhaps you have no clue that I have been reading CCK for YEARS now and I have witnessed this site make some great transformations. I don’t like all of them but she is has grown a LOT.
It’s not my own browser that is at ‘fault’ if you so childishly feel a need to assign a ‘fault’ to something like this.
If she has said this in the ‘past’ then it may very well be that I read a lot of different blogs and didn’t catch that little blurb on one of her posts.
You claim that I need ‘patience’ and ‘respect’. Oh gosh, if you could help me understand how long I am required to be ‘respectful’ and ‘patient’ according to YOUR standards that would be a huge help! I am never rude on blogs but get over yourself. I’ve been reading Katie’s blog probably longer than you have. I’m tired of the ads. Period. It’s not for YOU to deal with. It’s for her to deal with.
CCK is cool. Blog readers griping about headers that stand out more than anything when they click on the page is all a part of HER job, not yours, dear Jill.
Chocolate Covered Katie says
I am sorry for the glitch, but it was ceertainly not intentional. I don’t have my ads set up to cover the header. I’m not tech-savvy; and as Jill said, I’ve had a lot of issues with the design of my site, which is upsetting and frustrating to me as well. Is the ad always covering the header on your screen, or was it a one-time thing?
Please know that I understand the ads are not intentionally covering up your header. I am 100% certain that you and your blog designer did not intend that either!
Ever since you switched to your new design the ads always cover the header. Sometimes something will pop up at the bottom but those are easily deleted. For whatever reason, the ones at the top do not always give the ‘X’ option in the top right corner of the ad. They just hover over all or most of your header.
This is definitely not a one time thing! I know it sounds ridiculous but I have avoided clicking on here as much as I usually do because of the glaring ads that take over your header. That’s all I was pointing out.
For what it’s worth, I’ve tried 4 different browsers and they’ve all displayed the same thing. I can say that there have been a few times I haven’t had this problem so it doesn’t happen 100% of the time but it’s enough to irritate me like crazy!
P.S. Have you decided what is going to replace the chocolate dripping heart? I thought that was temporary until you found something else. Maybe I’m just missing all the old colorful pages more than I want to admit! 🙂
Cheri M. says
Oh my goodness! These were delicious! I didn’t have any pineapple, but I DID have some nice, juicy ripe nectarines, so substituted those instead (just chopped up & placed in the batter) and they were AMAZING! They tasted like peach cobbler. So good!! Thanks for all the great recipes Katie. I enjoy them a lot!
These look like heaven! I love breakfast for dinner. I, for medical reasons, have to follow a gluten free diet so many of your recipes I follow and try out. I have a hard time finding some of the things you use(I live in a very very very small town). What would happen if I didn’t use quick oats? I have to have the gf kind and I have a hard time finding the quick cook kind. Also…could I use the left over gluten free pancake mix I have? I love from scratch but I need to finish the premix too. Pineapple is going on my grocery list.
I used rolled oats and it worked fine.
Jennifer Wentworth says
Katie!!! My darlin! I made these first thing this morning for my mom dad brother and grandma with gf flour and used rice chex in place of oats because I’ve had bad reactions with oats since becoming allergic to gluten wheat and soy I also added orange zest to the batter and used the centers I cut from the pineapple and put in cuisinart and puréed down then put in a sauce pan with a little stevia water and corn startch and made pineapple glaze syrup. They were sooo good! Everyone loved them so much!! Cooking has never been something I have enjoyed until recently and now I literally live to cook and create and make others smile by sharing my tasty creations!! Love you and your inspirational blog!
Chocolate Covered Katie says
Thank you so much for making them!
These are so pretty! They make me want to go to Hawaii — even though I just got back!
Thomsa Nwafor says
Lucky you lol
Thomsa Nwafor says
How on earth do you come up with these wonderful recipes. You are so creative.
Katie, These pancakes sound delicious. I wouldn’t have put pineapple with pancakes, but I will now!
Paul Lista says
I was on my cousin’s page and the picture of the pineapple jumped up off the page and grabbed me by the neck. Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits, I could eat it every day. I’ll try this one weekend when I need cheering up.
jo @ includingcake says
Love this quirky idea! I guess you could use peaches or other fruits too. I might have a go with GF flour mix….yummy weekend breakfast coming up!
I just had an epiphany! Merging this would the pizzert/breakfast pizza! Just made breakfast pizza for my kids (which they LOVE) and thought about this idea too late. Can’t wait to try it!
Omg this pancakes are Amaaaazing!!! I was in breakfast heaven and then kicked out when i saw my empty plate 🙁 hehehe …but im going to make them again very soon for sure! This is one of the best pancakes recipes i´ve ever tried!!!!
Michelle Wood says
I just made these for breakfast for my mom and husband. Both of whom are not Vegan (but I am). They LOVED these, as did I!! I will definitely be making them again. Thanks for all the awesome recipes 🙂
Sydney Bobrow says
Thank YOU Katie! I received this recipe in my inbox about a week ago and knew that Father’s Day was coming up, so today I made these deliciously sweet pancakes for my dad! It turned out to be a big hit for the entire family! They were SO tasty and super fun to make.
Dee Jones says
I just wandered across your lovely site tonight while waiting in vain for sleepiness to descend, and these look gorgeous. I wonder if the pineapple pancake concept would work well with coconut pancakes? (Doing quasi-primal, so I am trying to lay off pretty much all grains for the time being.)
Unofficial CCK Helper says
I’m not Katie, but I wouldn’t recommend substituting coconut flour in an exact replacement for other flour in a recipe without tweaking some other ingredients as well.
These are so good! I just made one batch of the recipe which was enough for me and the kids. They’re 4, and 19 months and they loved them and asked for more! Thanks Katie, please keep creating deliciousness!
I just have to post a comment. I have been following and doing recipes in this blog now for a few months and I absolutely LOVE it!!!! My husband laughs at me because I often start sentences with “Chocolate covered Katie says….” He says, “you act like you guys are friends or something.” I virtually feel like we are friends because I love how real you are in your posts, not to mention how you have the most creative, healthiest and BEST dessert recipes I have ever seen! I am making these pancakes for us for breakfast (second time because they were so good) and I have some oatmeal raisin cookie ice cream in the freezer now (awesome!!). Plus, we live in Austin, so it was fun to read your recent posts about Austin. 🙂 Thanks for all you do (I can’t imagine how much time and effort this venture takes!) to keep all your followers full of fun dessert ideas! 🙂
I like reading through an article that will make people think.
Also, thanks for allowing for me to comment!
Oooh! Yummy! I usually like new breakfasts each morning. I love all your pancake recipes. You should make a peppermint pancake!:D I love peppermint. 😉
I am always craving something sweet in the morning. I was actually pondering of going out and getting cinnamon rolls and making them, but so glad i found your recipe! Can get a much healthier start to the day!! And I didnt even need syrup or any sweetneer because of the sweetness of pineapple. Reminds me of breakfast when i was on vacation in Hawaii, Aloha! 🙂 All i need now is a cup of delicious Kona coffee 🙂
ps: just wondering if you used canned or fresh pineapple ? Thank You
Hi! I made these with canned pineapple, and I believe she did too!
Oh. My. Pancake. These were AMAZING! I couldn’t believe how amazing these were. This is probably my favorite pancake recipe that I have ever had (I am not vegan). I am going to have these again tomorrow for lunch (I’m trying the chocolate oatmeal for breakfast)! I can hardly wait! Thank you so much for these recipes!
Made these for breakfast this morning. I also put some maple syrup, 1 pineapple ring, a pinch of cinnamon, and some pineapple juice in my blender- I used this combination in place of plain maple syrup. They were DELICIOUS, had an incredible texture (I made them with coconut oil) and my boyfriend loved them, too. Thanks, Katie!
Lyn, a baby boomer who loves food and gets younger every day says
I’ve had pineapple upside down cake before and found it to be quite good though very unhealthy. I like that this recipe uses pancakes instead of regular cake and they’re so much healthier than regular pancakes even. The ingredients give it an amazing flavor and they’re all healthy, natural ones like milk and virgin coconut oil. I can’t wait to try this new recipe with my family.
Katy these are the best pancakes in the world!!!!!! they are my new favorite pan cake flavor ever and that’s really saying something because I’ve tried like a million flavors!!! Up until i met these, my favorite pancakes were these: http://iowagirleats.com/2013/01/03/orange-pancakes-with-berry-orange-sauce/
But now ive got a new favorite! !!!!!!! xD
God bless you for this recipe. I just know I’ll love it too. I love pineapple upside down cake and don’t eat it for obvious reasons, but now, cue birds singing and harps playing, I can eat these luscious pancakes gilt-free.
Looking through the pancake recipes and the flour options. I was wondering if you’ve ever tried making them with almond, oat or coconut flour ?
Harley Wolfe says
I was wondering what or rather how you come to your calorie/nutrition info. I plugged the recipie into my preferred program, and received a calorie count of 388 for everything. Can’t wait to try it, but kinda bummed the calorie count you provided was so off. 100 calories is a big diffrence.
Allison Sonnier says
These pancakes are fabulous. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I cannot wait to try more from your website!
can i use water instead of milk in this recipe? i currently dont have any milk at home but i really want to make this. also i want to ask what is the difference in texture of fat free pancakes and normal ones? i love your blog by the way:)
Dane Demoon says
I don’t like foods that tastes very sweet. But if this is the kind of food that I will going to it, well I will really go for it 🙂
Chris W. says
I made these for breakfast this morning and they are delicious! I added pecans to mine, but other than that, I followed the recipe exactly using white spelt flour. Thanks so much, Katie!
Emily A says
Could you possibly replace the oatmeal with instant cream of wheat?
I made these this morning because i ACTUALLY had pineapple and i NEVER have pineapple! So I made these and i really need to say the texture was absolutely incredible! i They were more a cross between a pancake and a moist scone in my opinion, but that is preferable for me. I will be making these again on my next morning off FOR SURE.
Two things; 1. I did not have any quick oats so I just used a teeny bit more spelt flour, which may have added to the more flattened, biscuit-like pancake. 2. I usually opt to make Katie’s recipes without added oil when I can, but this time I used the coconut oil and I think it would have been pretty eck without it…definitely adds that “buttery” taste/flavor that you’d want. Coconut and pineapple go amazing together. I used the pinch of stevia too instead of the liquid sweetener and i’m glad I did because the pineapple made it sweet enough and I am not that big on super sweet things.
I had a cup of delicious pour over fair trade coffee as a treat and the whole experience was just oh so amazing seriously. 🙂 THANKS KATIE!! 🙂
And to answer the question of the day; I usually stick to Ezekiel Sprouted Cereal (conn-raisin flavor) with a banana and almond milk every morning. So nice to change it up with pancakes from this website on days off though! 🙂
I have been trying to introduce new fruits to my 16 month old because he is soooo picky and this turned out perfectly for both of us! Turns out suspiciously new looking food is much more enticing when encased in pancake lol 🙂 Thanks for the great idea!
This is AMAZING! A world without chocolate covered Katie would be living in black and white! Your recipes give color to this world! The side picture of you can brighten up anyones day! Thank you for sharing all these fantastic recipes! I cannot wait to try more and more!
Lisa C says
This was amazing!!! I absolutely love Pineapple Upside Down Cake….
I made these for my kids this morning, and even my pickiest eater said she loved them!
I had leftover pineapple from Easter and made this recipe… Absolutely delicious!! I didn’t have any oil so I omitted it, used agave nectar as my sweetener and used soy milk. I let the pineapple get brown in the pan… Sprinkled a tiny bit of cinnamon sugar on top with a little bit of margarine spread and syrup… So yummy!!! Thanks for the recipe!!!
Oh! And I forgot to add that I love that these didn’t need any egg so I could give to my egg allergic baby!! Thanks again!! I know this recipe was posted years ago, but I just was searching for something to make with the leftover canned pineapple that didn’t have eggs and lucky me, up popped your recipe 🙂 thanks again!!
From the photos I think your recipe is delicious. I also like it because its healthy. I’d love to cook one for my family. Thank you for the recipe.
These were delicious! I left out the sweetener and sprinkled a little bit of brown sugar on before I pushed the pineapple in. No need for syrup! But, there was no way I was going to get 4 pancakes from this recipe. I have made it three times and consistently get 3 cakes.
These are amazing, my non-healthy husband replied the first time I made them “these are the best pancakes I think I’ve ever had.” Making them again tomorrow and am going to salivate all night until then. Make sure to use more butter in pan as fruit tends to stick.
