Spiced Coconut Pancakes with Tropical Fruit


2-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
3/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 can (13-1/2-oz) light unsweetened coconut milk (abut 1-2/3 cups)
2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
    Vegetable oil
    Tropical Fruit Salad
    Additional pure maple syrup
    chopped natural unsalted pistachios (for garnish)


Preheat oven to 250° F.  Whisk first 6 ingredients and 3/4 teaspoon salt in large bowl.  Whisk coconut milk, 1-1/4 cups warm water, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, and vanilla in medium bowl.  Whisk coconut milk mixture into dry ingredients until batter is pourable.

Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat; brush with vegetable oil.  working in batches, add batter by 1/4 cupful.  Working quickly and using back of spoon, spread each pancake to about 4-inch round.  Cook until small bubbles appear on surface and bottoms of pancakes are golden, reducing heat if browning too quickly, 2 to 3 minutes.  Turn over; cook until golden, 1 to 2 minutes.  Transfer to baking sheet.  Keep warm in oven.

Place 2 to 3 pancakes on each plate.  top with Tropical Fruit Salad, maple syrup, and chopped pistachios.
