These Hawaiian Pancakes are so fluffy, sweet and flavorful! Made with bananas and coconut and topped with a super easy to make guava jam they are going to become a staple in your brunch table. 

I’m going to be honest with you, I’m pretty picky when it comes to pancakes. They are a classic dish and I love classic flavors. You know the type: Super fluffy, slightly sweet, perfect to eat with fresh fruits and jams. 

I knew I wanted to create  a Hawaiian inspired pancake but I couldn’t get the flavor combination right. It was too coconut-y (if that’s a thing) or too sweet or too dense. But after some tests I can finally say I found it. 

These Hawaiian pancakes are A-MA-ZING. Honestly they taste like a vacation on the Big Island. They are sweet but not in an overpowering way. The sweet coconut notes pair perfectly with the sweet and juicy banana and that quick guava jam on top? It was a struggle not to eat it all with a spoon!

How to Make the Perfect Hawaiian Pancakes: 

1. Use Ripe Bananas

If they are not ripe, bake them, with the skin on at 180 for 15 minutes: I’m not sure if you’ve had Hawaiian bananas, but they are, simply put, the best. They are sweet and intense like no other fruit.

If you can get your hands on them, very ripe bananas will work.

However if your bananas are not totally ripe, you can bake them for a bit to bring out all the natural occurring sugars. That’s what we do for our Hawaiian banana bread recipe and it makes such a difference!

2. Add a Splash of Coconut Milk

This is what gives it the coconut flair without making them too heavy.

3. Be Generous with the Guava Jam

The guava jam is what brings this whole dish together,  it’s also mind blowing good. So make a large batch, you’ll thank me later. 

How to Make Guava Jam

Guava fruit can be difficult to find in some places. However you don’t need it to make this jam. You just need some guava juice which is available at most Asian and Latin stores.

Pour it in a small pot over medium heat and a sprinkle of pectin. Stir to combine and bring to a gentle simmer. Then just let it cool down. 

That’s it. The easiest jam you’ll ever make.
